Democratic nominee Joe Biden continues to lead President Donald Trump in the key swing states of Arizona, Florida and Michigan with almost one month left until the November 3 election, Newsweek reported.

U.K.-based polling group Redfield & Wilson Strategies surveyed various numbers of registered voters from September 23 to 27 in several key swing states, according to poll results released October 2.

In Arizona, 47 percent of voters said they would support Biden in the election, compared to the 44 percent who chose Trump. Biden’s lead shrunk by 2 percent from results published by the same polling group two weeks ago, as Trump managed to increase his lead slightly in the former reliably red state.

Biden saw an increase of his lead in Florida, however—one of the most important states for Trump to win if he has any hope of remaining in the White House for the next four years. The politically unpredictable state has voted for every presidential winner since 1996, including Trump in 2016, Al Jazeera reported.

Forty-eight percent of Floridians said they would vote for Biden, compared to the 43 percent who chose Trump.

And in Michigan, where Biden has plans to campaign Friday, the former vice president saw his lead shrink by one percentage point over the last two weeks. But more than half of residents still say they support the Democratic candidate, 51 percent, compared to the 42 percent who support Trump.

Biden is also leading Trump in three other toss-up states, including North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, according to the recent poll.
