Joe Biden’s chances of reelection, according to a new national survey by the Northeastern University-led Civic Health and Institutions Project known as CHIP50. The project is led by David Lazer, a university distinguished professor of political science and computer sciences at Northeastern.

The survey finds former President Donald Trump holding a significant advantage in the seven swing states that were decided by fewer than three points in 2020 — Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Trump’s net approval is 19% greater than Biden’s in those crucial states, according to the survey by CHIP50 — a groundbreaking effort by researchers at Northeastern, Harvard, Rutgers and Rochester.
