On the eve of a President Donald Trump's town hall Thursday in Wisconsin, a Marquette University Law School Poll shows Democrat Joe Biden trouncing President Donald Trump by 9 points in the battleground state.

Biden drew 49% support among registered voters to Trump's 41%, marking a steady uptick for the presumptive Democratic presidential primary nominee. Biden and Trump were tied in February, before Biden pulled ahead at 3 points but within the margin of error in March and May, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

"This has been a good gain for Biden at this point," pollster Charles Franklin told the paper. "And it's a relatively widespread gain. He's picking up across different regions and different groups."

Among the other notable findings in the poll is Trump had a 45% job approval to 51% disapproval, which comes amid civil unrest related to police abuse of force and social injustice activism.

"That's down 2 points from a month ago," Franklin said. "While his overall job approval has been so stable for a long time, we find a real range on specific issues. How Trump is handling the protests, only 30% approve, 58% disapprove."

Biden has benefited from the coronavirus pandemic damaging the president, along with Democrats getting behind their party's now clear primary leader.

"The Democratic Party is coalescing around Biden," Franklin said. "Biden is now getting over 90% of the Democratic vote. That's not up a lot, but it's up from the high 80s."

Marquette University Law School Poll surveyed 805 registered voters from June 13-18 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.3 percentage points.
