Former President Trump holds an 18-point lead over President Biden in Iowa, according to a new poll in a one-time crucial general election battleground state that’s shifted to the right over the past decade.

Trump, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, stands at 50% with Biden at 32% among likely voters in a Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa Poll released on Monday.

Democrat turned independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who says he’s qualified to make Iowa’s ballot, grabbed 9% support, with Libertarian Party candidate Chase Oliver at 3%, and 3% backing other candidates, according to the survey.

Iowa was a one-time swing state, which former President Barack Obama carried in the 2008 and 2012 elections. But Trump won the state by 9 points over Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in 2016 in his White House victory and by 8 points over Biden four years ago in his re-election defeat.

WILL THIS POTENTIAL TRUMP RUNNING MATE’S FUNDRAISING PROWESS HELP HIM IN THE VEEPSTAKES?

Trump’s 18-point lead over Biden is up from a 15-point margin the former president held over his Democratic successor in the White House in the previous Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa Poll, which was conducted in February.

The poll was conducted June 9-14, entirely after Trump was found guilty of all 34 felony counts in the first trial of a former or current president in the nation’s history.

The president’s approval rating in the poll stood at 28%, with two-thirds disapproving of the job Biden is doing in the White House.

And Biden’s favorable rating was also deeply underwater, at 33% favorable and 66% unfavorable.
