NORTHERN WISCONSIN - President Donald Trump will be visiting Northeast Wisconsin Thursday, including Fincantieri Marinette Marine for a tour of the facility and to deliver remarks. This as his poll numbers in Wisconsin hit a new low.
A new Marquette Law School Poll of Wisconsin registered voters finds Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden with 49 percent support and Republican incumbent Donald Trump with 41 percent.
There has been a steady decline for the president. In February, Biden and Trump were tied. In May, Biden held a three point lead. Now, Biden holds an eight point lead in the crucial swing state.
Both the White House and the Biden team are re-upping their efforts in Wisconsin.
The Biden team announced it hired four experienced Wisconsin political operatives his Wisconsin campaign.
Vice President Mike Pence visited southeast Wisconsin Tuesday, and President Donald Trump will be visiting northeast Wisconsin Thursday - with stops planned in Green Bay and Marinette.
Marinette is home to Fincantieri Marine, the recent recipient of a contract with the US Navy to build ships. That contract could be worth up to $5.5 billion.
Republican John Nygren represents Marinette in the Wisconsin assembly.
"I think President Trump has done a good job," said Rep. Nygren.
He says the President has delivered for Northeastern Wisconsin time and time again.
"Until the pandemic hit, our economy was flying high and let's hope we're heading back to that type of prosperity," said Rep. Nygren.
But Nygren's democratic challenger Karl Jaeger said it was the President's botched response to COVID-19 that led to record unemployment and more than 120,000 dead due to the coronavirus.
"He didn't care about all the workers across Wisconsin whose jobs were lost before," said Jaeger. "He still doesn't care about the families he harmed with his actions, who are still trying to figure out how to pay for their healthcare, their rent, and the food they need to put on their table."
After visiting Marinette, President Trump will attend a one hour town hall at Green Bay's Austin Straubel International Airport.
