(FeaturedNews.com) – A New York Times-Siena college poll that was released on Sunday has found that former President Donald Trump is leading the presidential race in five of the six key battleground states in the general election.
According to the poll, Trump currently has a 10-point lead against President Biden in Nevada, a five-point lead in Michigan and Arizona, a six-point lead in Georgia, and a four-point lead in Pennsylvania. Biden, on the other hand, manages to pull ahead only in one race in Wisconsin and even there he is only leading by two points.
In the 2020 presidential election, Biden had won all six of these states. However, under the current polling results, when the results for all the states are combined Trump wins with a 48-44 lead over the President.
The poll was conducted from Oct. 22 to Nov. and 3,662 registered voters from the six states were surveyed.
The low polling rates of Biden are in part the result of the lack of confidence in the President. Apart from Biden’s age being a contentious point for voters, many voters have also argued that they believe Trump will handle immigration, foreign policy, and the economy better.
Trump has also been winning the support of a demographic that has traditionally supported the Democratic president, as 22 percent of Black voters in these six states supported him in the election.
While Trump still has to win the Republican party’s primary election before he can be considered the party’s nominee, he is currently leading the race by a large margin and is expected to easily win the primary.
