President Trump trails presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden in Ohio, Wisconsin, and Arizona, according to surveys from Fox News released Wednesday.
Trump won all three states in 2016, and few believed until recently that Ohio might be in play.
The Fox News poll of the Buckeye State found Biden at 45 percent and Trump at 43 percent, which is within the survey’s 3.5 percentage point margin of error.
Trump carried Ohio by 8 points in 2016, and most Democrats had abandoned any hope that the onetime presidential bellwether might be up for grabs in 2020.
Trump was first GOP presidential candidate in decades to carry Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. Democrats have been bullish about their chances of winning back Michigan and Pennsylvania, but many have been skeptical about their chances of winning back Wisconsin, with its predominantly white electorate.
The Wisconsin Fox News poll found Trump and Biden statistically tied on the economy, with Biden leading by double-digit margins on race relations and the pandemic.
The Fox News survey of 803 voters in Ohio was conducted between May 30 and June 2 and has a 3.5 percentage point margin of error. The survey of 801 Wisconsin voters has a 3.5 percentage point margin of error, and the survey of 1,002 Arizona voters has a 3 percentage point margin of error.
The poll also saw Senator Martha McSally behind her Democratic challenger Mark Kelly by 13 points. In 2018, Kyrsten Sinema became the first Democratic senator from Arizona in more than two decades.
The Arizona Senate race is a critical contest that could determine the balance of power in the chamber as Democrats seek to win back a majority.
The final Fox News poll found Biden opening up a 9-point lead in Wisconsin, which Trump won only narrowly in 2016.
