New polling by Firehouse Strategies and 0ptimus finds that in three critical 2020 states, Ivanka Trump has a higher net favorability among likely general election voters than her father does.

Why it matters: Ivanka, a presidential adviser who'll be in Charlotte on Tuesday to co-chair the second American Workforce Policy Advisory Board meeting, can be a surrogate in tough states.

By the numbers:

  • Pennsylvania: Ivanka +3, POTUS -3
  • Michigan: Ivanka +1, POTUS -5
  • Wisconsin: Ivanka -4, POTUS -7
