Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump is leading presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in six out of seven battleground counties in seven swing states.

A new survey conducted by the Republican consulting firm Axiom Strategies and the polling firm Remington Research Group surveyed “seven battleground counties that will decide seven battleground states.” The swing states surveyed were: Colorado, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, and Virginia.

Clinton only leads the billionaire in one county by three points: Loudoun County, Virginia — but her lead has slipped five points since last month’s poll.

Trump is ahead of Clinton significantly in Luzerne, Pennsylvania where he leads by 23 points. He’s also leading her by 12 points in Washoe County, Nevada and is up in Sandusky County, Ohio by 11 points.

In the rest of the counties, Trump’s lead sinks to single digits:

  • In Watauga County, North Carolina, Trump is up by seven points.
  • In Hillsborough County, Florida, Trump is up by three points.
  • In Jefferson County, Colorado, Trump is up by one point.

Trump increased his standing in Jefferson County, Colorado since last month where he trailed Clinton by four points in June.
