Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is currently ahead of President Donald Trump in six key battleground states—all of which the president was victorious in during the 2016 election, according to a new poll.

The study conducted by Survey Monkey/Axios found the former vice president leading Trump in Wisconsin, Michigan, Arizona, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Georgia.

Biden’s largest lead over the president among these six states comes in Wisconsin, where he is currently ahead by 12 points. According to the poll, 55 percent of respondents in Wisconsin said they’d vote for Biden, while 43 percent of respondents sided with Trump.

Survey Monkey/Axios based their findings on a 28-day rolling average with polls conducted from October 1 to October 28 among 4,569 likely voters in the state. The poll reported a margin of error of plus or minus 2 points in Wisconsin.

Biden’s second largest lead across these six states comes in Michigan, where the poll found him ahead by eight points. Fifty-three percent of respondents in Michigan said they’d vote for the former vice president, compared to 45 percent of respondents who chose Trump.

The poll surveyed 7,541 likely voters in Michigan from October 1 to October 28 and reported a margin or error of plus or minus 2 percentage points.

In both Arizona and Pennsylvania, the poll found Biden ahead by six points. Fifty-two percent of respondents in those two states said they’d vote for Biden, compared to 46 percent who sided with Trump.

According to the poll, 5,687 likely voters were surveyed in Arizona, which had a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points—while 10,599 likely voters were surveyed in Pennsylvania, with the poll reporting a margin of error of plus or minus 1.5 percentage points.

In North Carolina, the poll surveyed 8,720 likely voters and found Biden ahead by just five points—as 52 percent said they’d vote for him, while 47 percent backed the president. The poll in North Carolina had a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points.

And in Georgia, Biden’s lead over Trump was within the margin of error of plus or minus 2 points—as 50 percent said they vote for the former vice president, while 48 percent chose Trump.

During the 2016 presidential election, Trump won each of these six states over Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton to eventually go on and win the presidency.

The latest findings come less than a week before Election Day, and several other nationally conducted polls show Biden holding a lead over Trump.

RealClearPolitics’ average of several national polls shows Biden ahead by 7.4 points.
