Former President Donald Trump is reportedly leading five crucial battleground states previously won by President Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election in both the New York Times/Siena College and the Philadelphia Inquirer polls released on Monday (May 13), (h/t the New York Post).

Trump leads Biden among voters in Michigan, Arizona, Nevada, Georgia and Pennsylvania, while Biden still holds an advantage in Wisconsin. The polls reportedly reflected Americans' dissatisfaction to the president's handling of several issues, including inflation, immigration, and the Israel-Hamas war, as well as the president's ability to improve the quality of life for Americans.

Nearly 70% of respondents said the U.S. needed a political and economic systems overhaul and only 13% believed Biden was capable of making that change during a potential second term. Several respondents also admitted that they believed Trump would be the candidate to bring these changes despite admitting to still disliking him.

Trump and Biden were reported to be tied among Hispanic voters ages 18 to 29, a demographic that had more than 60% support Biden during the 2020 presidential election. Trump was also reported to have 20% support among Black voters, the highest reported total for a Republican candidate since the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
