Former President Trump leads President Biden in hypothetical head-to-head general election match-ups in five of six key battleground states, polling released Monday shows.

The New York Times/Siena College/Philadelphia Inquirer polling, conducted from April 28 to May 9, shows Trump leading Biden among registered voters in Pennsylvania (47 percent to 44 percent), Arizona (49 percent to 42 percent), Michigan (49 percent to 42 percent), Georgia (49 percent to 39 percent) and Nevada (50 percent to 38 percent).

The polling shows Biden leading in Wisconsin, 47 percent to 45 percent, in the same hypothetical match-up.

The results are similar among likely voters, with the difference between the two candidates moving only 1 or 2 percentage points in Arizona, Georgia, Nevada and Pennsylvania. Biden’s performance in Michigan, however, improves by 5 points among likely voters, giving him a 1-point lead over Trump, 47 percent to 46 percent. In Wisconsin, Biden loses his edge over Trump, who leads Biden among likely voters, 47 percent to 46 percent.
