Donald Trump was hit with a flurry of poor poll results in key battleground states on Tuesday.
Public Policy Polling released surveys for Pennsylvania, Ohio, Wisconsin, Iowa, New Hampshire, and Arizona for a one-on-one matchup between Trump and presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
Arizona, typically entrenched in the red, was the only state in which Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee, was ahead – and that was by only a 4-point margin.
Trump trailed Clinton by 4 points in New Hampshire, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. The Manhattan billionaire also trailed her by 8 points in Wisconsin and was down by 2 points in Iowa.
The margin of error was 3.1 to 4.1 points for the six polls.
To win in the fall, Trump will need to secure Pennsylvania and Ohio as well as one or two more close states with large swaths of electoral college votes.
The Public Policy Polling surveys come on the heels of Clinton widening her lead over Trump to its largest point in nearly two months. Ahead of Trump by 6.7% in the coveted RealClearPolitics average of several polls, Clinton has bested Trump in 21 consecutive national polls.
