President Biden has narrowed the gap against former President Trump in six out of seven key battleground states over the past month, according to a new poll that hints at a likely close general election race between the two men in November.

A Bloomberg News/Morning Consult poll, published Tuesday found Biden still trailing Trump overall among all voters in the seven battleground states likely to determine the outcome of the election. But it had good news for Biden as he chipped away at Trump's lead almost across the board, and overtook the former president in one state.

The poll found Biden doing particularly well in the Blue Wall states of Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

Biden is leading Trump by 1 percentage point in the Badger State after previously trailing him by 4 points in a February survey.

In Michigan and Pennsylvania, the two candidates are tied, 45-45. A February poll showed Trump ahead in Michigan by 2 percentage points and ahead in Pennsylvania by 6 percentage points.

Biden weakened Trump's lead in Nevada, narrowing it from 6 points in a February survey to 2 percentage points in Tuesday's poll.

The incumbent also closed the gap on Trump in Arizona, though he still trails by 5 percentage points, and in North Carolina, where the former president is still leading by 6 percentage points.

Trump managed to expand his lead in Georgia from 6 percentage points to 7 points, the poll found.

Overall, the likely GOP nominee still leads Biden among swing state voters, 47 percent to 43 percent, the survey found.

The Bloomberg/Morning Consult poll surveyed 4,932 registered voters in the seven swing states from March 8-15. It has a margin of error of 3 points in Arizona, Georgia and Pennsylvania; 4 points in Michigan North Carolina and Wisconsin and 5 points in Nevada.

Biden's performance in the poll was buoyed in part by his State of the Union address in early March, where he aggressively contrasted his agenda with Trump's rhetoric and actions during his first term in office.

The president has since embarked on a campaign blitz, visiting Georgia, Arizona, Wisconsin, Michigan, Nevada and Pennsylvania in recent weeks. Biden and Vice President Harris will travel to North Carolina Tuesday to discuss their health care agenda.

Trump, meanwhile, has only held one event since he became the presumptive GOP nominee: A rally in Ohio for his preferred Senate candidate ahead of a primary there.

He was in court on Monday, and his trial in New York over an alleged hush money scheme will begin in April.
