But an average of the latest public opinion polls in Ohio compiled by Real Clear Politics shows Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden with a 3.3 point edge over the president.
An average of the latest polls in the key battleground state of Pennsylvania compiled by Real Clear Politics indicates a close contest – with Biden edging the president by 4.7 points.
The new average includes a Fox News poll released Thursday that showed the former vice president with a seven-point lead over Trump.
But Trump narrowly edged Clinton in all three states four years ago, helping him win the White House.
During his three and a half decades representing neighboring Delaware in the Senate, he earned the nickname "Pennsylvania's third senator."
