The Democrats also fell behind Trump in head-to-head match-ups in polls of Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, two other key battleground states. 

The poll was conducted Dec. 3 through 5, as House Democrats pressed forward with their impeachment inquiry, though before they officially unveiled articles of impeachment on Tuesday. 

Trump's impeachment and removal from office is opposed by 50.8 percent of voters in Michigan, 52.2 percent of voters in Pennsylvania and 57.8 percent of Wisconsin voters. 

FireHouse Strategies surveyed 1,759 likely 2020 general election voters, comprising 610 in Wisconsin, 551 in Michigan, and 598 in Pennsylvania. The sample was weighted by age group, gender, education and political party in each state to reflect the demographic characteristics of the likely voter population.

The margin of error for the Michigan and Pennsylvania results is 4.3 percentage points, and the margin of error for the Wisconsin results is 4.1 percentage points.
