The poll has a 1.8 percent margin of error. Even accounting for this margin, President Trump has the lead in each state polled but Wisconsin.
A new poll shows that President Donald Trump is leading President Joe Biden in nearly every major battleground state.
Specifically, the poll, conducted by The New York Times and Sienna, found President Trump is leading by substantial margins in Nevada, Georgia, Arizona, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, while only slightly trailing President Biden in Wisconsin.
An overwhelming majority, between 60 and 70 percent, of voters in each of the six key states told pollsters that the country is headed in the wrong direction, including the majority of voters from every racial, gender, education, and income class.
The specific numbers in each state paint a dire portrait for President Biden in practically every battleground state that led to his securing the presidency in 2020.
The poll has a 1.8 percent margin of error, and, even accounting for this margin, President Trump has the lead in each state polled but Wisconsin.
In Arizona—a state that was ultimately called in 2020 for President Biden—President Trump has a five-point lead, with 49 percent of voters preferring him compared to 44 percent preferring the incumbent.
Likewise, in Georgia—a state called for President Biden by an extremely narrow margin in 2020—voters now claim a significant preference for President Trump, who has a six-point lead. Forty-nine percent say they’d vote for the former president if the election were held tomorrow, while only 43 percent say they’d support President Biden.
The situation is equally foreboding for President Biden in Michigan, a Rust Belt state where the president has focused much of his efforts, portraying himself as “the most pro-union president in history.” Despite these claims, voters in this state also reported a substantial preference for President Trump, with 48 percent saying they support him while only 43 percent support President Biden.
President Trump’s most remarkable battleground lead is recorded in Nevada, which President Biden also won in 2020. Fifty-two percent of voters there say they prefer President Trump, compared to 41 percent for President Biden.
