Trump leads Biden in 5 crucial swing states: Siena

Donald Trump holds notable leads over Joe Biden in five key swing states, according to a New York Times/Siena College poll released Sunday.
Voters in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, Arizona and Nevada all prefer Trump, pollsters found. Of the six states surveyed, Biden only leads in Wisconsin. Biden won all six states in the 2020 presidential election.
The Times and Siena polled about 600 registered voters in each of the six states. Trump held the largest lead in Nevada, where 52% of respondents preferred him, to only 41% for Biden.
The poll was conducted between Oct. 22 and Nov. 3, and the margin of error was between 4.4 and 4.8 percentage points in each state.
Sunday’s poll painted a much darker picture for Biden than a previous NYT/Siena poll published in August. That nationwide poll showed the two party frontrunners neck and neck with 43% support.
But if Trump is able to repeat Sunday’s poll results at the ballot box in one year, he would likely cruise to a second four-year term in the White House. On average, Biden trails in the six battleground states by 48% to 44%.
Neither Biden nor Trump is expected to face much of a primary challenge. Trump has dominated Republican polls to such a degree that he hasn’t even bothered to show up for debates, despite facing dozens of criminal charges in four different cases.
But Trump did attend the Florida Republican Party’s Freedom Summit on Saturday in Kissimmee, taking the fight to Gov. Ron DeSantis in his home state.
“We’re going to win the Florida primary for the third straight time,” Trump told the crowd, to an unsurprising chorus of cheers.
Trump also announced a slate of new endorsements from Florida politicians, who flipped from DeSantis.
While Trump was allowed to give the event’s closing speech, DeSantis spoke earlier, in the afternoon. He attempted to focus on his conservative accomplishments as governor.
“Florida has shown the way forward for the Republican Party,” he said. “No state has done more to beat the left at the institutional level than we have in the state of Florida.”
Only former New Jersey governor Chris Christie, speaking even before DeSantis, openly criticized Trump in his speech. He was met with a chorus of boos.
“Your anger against the truth is reprehensible,” he told the crowd, who met him with cries of “Go back to New Jersey!”
