Wow! When Donald Trump said he would put states in play that Republicans usually don’t win, the experts scoffed.
But it now appears that the polls support Trump and are proving the so-called experts wrong again.
A number of new state polls out this week show that Trump is neck-in-neck with Clinton not only in swing states, but a number of blue states where he was not expected to be competitive.
Clearly something special is happening and it threatens to swamp Crooked Hillary and her hapless campaign.
The Washington Examiner has the details…
Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are virtually tied in Florida, Colorado and North Carolina, with Clinton’s lead within the margin of error in each of the states, according to a new CBS poll.
Clinton is only up by 5 points in Wisconsin, which hasn’t gone for a Republican since 1984 but is now seen as in play.
“Hillary Clinton holds narrow leads over Donald Trump across a number of key states of Florida (up 3 points, 44-41 percent); Colorado (Clinton 40 percent, Trump 39 percent); Wisconsin (Clinton up 41-36 percent) and North Carolina, which has flipped back and forth between the parties in the last two elections, where it’s Clinton 44 percent and Trump 42 percent,” CBS reports.
“In Michigan, Pennsylvania and, to a lesser extent, Wisconsin, an affinity for Trump’s message of economic populism and nationalism has surprised many Democrats,” Rucker and Wagner wrote. “These are big, industrial states they have carried for the past three decades — and where Clinton, so far, has not fully focused.”
In Pennsylvania, Clinton and Trump are in a statistical tie, according to RealClearPolitics polling averages. In Michigan, Trump closed the gap between the two candidates considerably once he became the GOP nominee, and now trails Clinton by just 4 points (though the last poll was taken at the end of May).
Are we heading for a Reagan-esque sweep?
There is still a long ways to go, but Donald Trump and Republicans have got to be happy about where they are!
