Former President Donald Trump leads President Joe Biden in five crucial head-to-head battleground states ahead of a November rematch and has gained ground among Black and Hispanic voters, a poll showed Monday.

Trump does forward of Biden by 13 points among likely voters in Nevada, as well as by nine points in Georgia, six points in Arizona, three points in Pennsylvania and one point in Wisconsin, according to the latest New York Times/Siena College poll. Biden leads in only one state, Michigan, by a margin of 47% to 45%.

Additionally, the poll found that Trump has narrowed the margin with Biden among two crucial voting blocs where Democrats typically win by large margins — Black and Hispanic individuals. In the six swing states, Biden leads Trump 70% to 18% among black voters, and 47% to 42% among Hispanic voters.

The margins are smaller than the previous NYT/Siena College poll of the same battleground states, as well as the exit polls from the 2020 election. According to Edison Research, Biden won Black and Hispanic voters by 75 and 33 points, respectively.

“The truth about Joe Biden’s witch hunts against President Trump is being revealed and reflected in the polls. The Biden trial is an epic backfire,” Karoline Leavitt, national press secretary for the Trump campaign, told the Daily Caller News Foundation in a statement. “There are more than 100 polls showing President Trump crushing Joe Biden, including recent polls showing him leading in every major battleground state and winning independents by double digits. President Trump remains focused on winning in November to make America great again.”

When independent Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and other third-party candidates are included in the poll, Trump’s lead grows in Nevada, Arizona and Pennsylvania, while the former president’s margin remains the same in Wisconsin and falls by one point in Georgia. Biden’s lead in Michigan jumps from one to three points.

Trump narrowly won Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin in 2016, but lost them all to Biden in the following cycle. Nevada went for Hillary Clinton in 2016 and Biden in 2020.

Although Trump had leads in Nevada, Pennsylvania, Arizona and Wisconsin, the Republican Senate candidates did not, according to the survey. Democratic Senator Jacky Rosen of Nevada and Republican Sam Brown were tied at 41%; Democratic Senator Bob Casey led Republican David McCormick by two points; Arizona Democratic Rep. Ruben Gallego led Republican Kari Lake by three points; Democratic Senator Tammy Baldwin led Republican Eric Hovde by seven points.

The RealClearPolitics average for a 2024 head-to-head with Biden shows Trump with a 1.2-point lead nationally, with the former president leading in seven swing states. Trump has a 6.2 point lead in Nevada, 5.4 points in North Carolina, 5.2 points lead in Arizona, 4.6 points lead in Georgia, two points lead in Pennsylvania, 0.8 points lead in Michigan and 0.6 point lead in Wisconsin.

The NYT/Siena College poll surveyed 4,097 voters between April 28 and May 9, with a margin of error of plus or minus 1.9%. Individually, the Pennsylvania study yielded margins of error of plus or minus 3.6%; 4.2% in Arizona; 4.5% in Michigan, Nevada and Wisconsin; and 4.6% in Georgia.

Biden’s campaign did not immediately respond to the DCNF’s requests for comment.
