Wisconsin voters favor President Donald Trump over top Democratic presidential candidates Joe Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), and Mayor Pete Buttigieg, according to a recent Marquette University Law School poll.

"New @mulawpoll finds Trump currently leading in head-to-head matches with Biden, Sanders, Warren, and Buttigieg among Wisconsin registered voters," the university said in a tweet. 

The November poll solicited opinions from 801 Wisconsin registered voters. It showed Trump beating Biden, with 47 percent saying they prefer Trump and 44 percent saying they support Biden. That is a 9 percentage point gain for Trump since October, and reveals support for the president has risen over the past month. 

Against Warren, Trump's lead in the poll is 5 percentage points.

The Wisconsin poll also found that there are more voters opposed to impeachment than there were in October.

53 percent of voters said they are not supportive of the impeachment and removal of Trump, while 44 percent said they did support it.

Swing-state polls on impeachment indicate it may not be a winning political issue for Democrats. Given these states' critical importance for the 2020 election, the way their voters perceive the impeachment process is likely to affect Trump’s reelection prospects.
