In a three-way race, Pennsylvania, Arizona, and Michigan voters said in equal percentages they would back Biden and Trump:

  • Pennsylvania: Biden 36 percent, Trump 36 percent, Kennedy 21 percent.
  • Arizona: Biden 34 percent, Trump 34 percent, Kennedy 24 percent.
  • Michigan: Biden 34 percent, Trump 34 percent, Kennedy 25 percent.

In a two-way race between Biden and Trump, 46 percent of current Kennedy supporters said they would lean towards or definitely vote for Trump, while 39 percent of current Kennedy supporters said they would lean towards or definitely vote for Biden, the poll found.

That proved true in two-way polling results:

  • Pennsylvania: Trump 49 percent, Biden 44 percent.
  • Arizona: Trump 49 percent, Biden 44 percent.
  • Michigan: Trump 46 percent, Biden 46 percent.

In Nevada, Trump has an 11-point lead in a two-way race, but that was cut to 6 points in a three-way race.
