Just over four months remain until the election and a new survey in several battleground states shows that former President Donald Trump is ahead of President Joe Biden. Between June 13th and 18th, 1,000 registered voters in seven key states participated in a survey conducted by Emerson College and The Hill.

In Wisconsin, 47% of respondents said they would vote for President Trump, 44% said they would vote for Vice President Biden, and 9% were not sure. Biden has lost support among the most extreme Democrats in the state due to his handling of the war in Gaza.

In Wisconsin, Republicans want to replace Senator Tammy Baldwin with Eric Hovde, who has Trump’s support. The poll found that he was only two percentage points behind Baldwin.

In Pennsylvania, 47% of respondents favored Trump over Biden (47% vs. 45%), and 7% were unsure. David McCormick, a Republican Senate candidate with Trump’s support, is six percentage points behind Democratic incumbent Senator Bob Casey.

However, he could use Trump’s support on election day to win the spot for the Republicans.

Michigan and Minnesota had the closest races. Trump got 1% of the vote in Michigan and tied with Biden in Minnesota. Republicans want to replace retired Senator Debbie Stabenow with Mike Rogers, who has Trump’s support.

In Nevada, 46% of people who answered the report supported Trump, 43% supported Biden, and 12% were not sure.

A Marist College survey shows Republican Sen. Ted Cruz leading Democratic opponent Rep. Colin Allred by six points in a crucial Senate contest as the GOP looks to recapture the majority in the chamber in November’s elections.

In 2020, Trump defeated Biden in Texas by about 5.5 points, the narrowest victory margin for a Republican presidential candidate in a deeply red state in almost 25 years.

“Independents, who Biden carried by 6 percentage points in 2020, now break for Trump. Trump receives 56% of Texas independents to 41% for Biden,” the release from Marist highlights.
