Trump widens lead over Biden in key battleground states: Poll

Former President Donald Trump is leading President Biden across seven states that could determine the results of the heated 2024 presidential contest.

A new Bloomberg News/Morning Consult survey asking voters from key states who they would vote for in the upcoming presidential election found that Trump is leading Biden 48% to 44% across the seven key swing states in play: Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

The poll also found that individual state polling from states previously won by Biden in 2020 reveals Trump is now the candidate of choice.

The poll also reported Trump holding a 2 point lead in Pennsylvania, 48% to 46% – another state won by Biden in 2020.

Trump leads Wisconsin by 1 point, 47% to 46%, the fourth state Biden won in 2020 that the poll reported Trump having an edge just months before election day.

The poll also found Trump is up in North Carolina by 7 percentage points, 49% to 42%, while the rivals are tied in Nevada, both securing 47% of the vote.

Biden secured a lead in one state in the survey, Michigan, but only by 1-point, 46% to 45%.

The new results come amid Trump’s hush money trial, where he has spent the last several weeks of his presidential campaign defending himself in a Lower Manhattan courtroom.

The Bloomberg surveys were conducted online from May 7 to 13th, with a margin of error of 3 percentage points in Arizona, Georgia and Pennsylvania. The margin of error in Michigan, North Carolina and Wisconsin was plus or minus 4 percentage points, while Nevada had a margin of error of plus or minus 5 percentage points.
