Recent polls from polling analysis site FiveThirtyEight show former President Donald Trump leading in six out of the ten largest states in the nation. These include Texas, Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Georgia, and North Carolina.

Unsurprisingly, President Joe Biden leads the polls in California and New York, but he may face some stiff competition from Robert F. Kennedy Jr., as polls show Biden and Kennedy – who is running as an independent – are neck and neck in Illinois.

FiveThirtyEight polls as of June 27, show California has Biden leading by 49.5%, while Trump sits at 29.6% and Kennedy has 10.4%.
