As President Donald Trump denounces "fake polling," the popularity of daughter Ivanka Trump just might be a catalyst for re-election in a 2020 race that can turn on the narrowest of margins, Newsweek reports.

The report cites a Firehouse Strategies and 0ptimus poll that has Ivanka's favorability trumping her presidential father in three key swing states: Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin.

"While not by overwhelming margins, Ivanka Trump maintains better net favorability among likely voters in these three states than her father does," according to the pollsters.

Those rust-belt states were decisive for President Trump's election in 2016 and Ivanka's popularity could prove pivotal, according to Newsweek.

Ivanka Trump's results in the poll:

  • Pennsylvania (+3): 38% favorable, 35% unfavorable.
  • Michigan (+1): 37% favorable, 36% unfavorable.
  • Wisconsin (-4): 35% favorable, 39% unfavorable.

President Trump's favorability margins in the poll:

  • Pennsylvania -3 points.
  • Michigan -5 points.
  • Wisconsin -7 points.

President Trump has lashed out at polling and fired three pollsters who leaked unfavorable results to the media this week, but his poll also has former Vice President Joe Biden leading in the hypothetical matchup in those three battleground states.

According to former White House economic adviser Gary Cohn, as quoted in "Kushner, Inc.: Greed. Ambition. Corruption. The Extraordinary Story of Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump," per Newsweek, Ivanka Trump is already projecting a presidential flair.

"She thinks she's going to be president of the United States," Cohn said, according to author Vicky Ward. "She thinks this is like the Kennedys, the Bushes, and now the Trumps."

The Firehouse/0ptimus poll was conducted June 11-13 among 1,687 likely voters.
