The Trump campaign is adding more voters than Democrat Joe Biden in three key battleground states heading into the election.

NBC News reported that in Florida, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania, voter registration numbers are trending right.

Four years ago, Trump won those three states, along with Arizona, Michigan, and Wisconsin, by less than 5 percentage points.

According to NBC, the numbers show that:

  • Republicans in Florida added a net 195,652 registered voters from the March primary through the end of August, while Democrats added 98,362.
  • Republicans in Pennsylvania added a net 135,619 voters from the GOP primary in June through September, compared to the 57,985 voters Democrats added.
  • Republicans in North Carolina added a net 83,785 voters from the March primary through September, compared to the 38,137 voters Democrats added.
  • Arizona Republicans are trailing Democrats in net voter registration, 31,139 to 29,667, but the GOP's registration numbers there and in Florida, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina are increasing at a higher pace than they were ahead of the 2016 election.

Voter registration deadlines differ by state, but they are all rapidly approaching ahead of the Nov. 3 election.

According to RealClearPolitics, Biden holds an average lead of 7.2 percentage points over Trump in national polls. In the top battleground states, Biden leads by 3.5 percentage points.
