Everyone knows the battle for the presidency will be won in the swing states. Voters need to place close attention to states like Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Iowa, Pennsylvania and Colorado, because Trump needs to carry most of these to win the White House in November.
The latest surge for Hillary took many of the swing state polls along with it. While some national polls are moving back to a close race, many of these states are still in Hillary’s favor.
But this poll is great news for Donald Trump, especially in a state he did n’t prevail in the primaries. Suffolk University has the numbers:
With fewer than 13 weeks to go before the November election, a new Suffolk University poll shows the race in Iowa a statistical dead heat with Republican Donald Trump leading Democrat Hillary Clinton 41 percent to 40 percent, with 17 percent undecided.
In a four-way race with Green Party nominee Jill Stein and Libertarian Gary Johnson added into the mix, Trump edges Clinton 37 percent to 36 percent, with Johnson getting 6 percent and Stein 3 percent, and 17 percent undecided.
The latest revelations about Hillary Clinton’s emails and their possibly deadly effects seem to have eroded this Midwestern state’s vote:
Clinton continues to struggle with trustworthiness among likely voters. When respondents were asked if they thought Clinton is honest and trustworthy 29 percent said yes while 62 percent said no, and 9 percent weren’t sure.
This is a possible indication of the tide turning on Hillary in the key states as Clinton’s image erodes further than most of the media thought was possible. We will keep a close eye on the trends, and the Trump campaign will as well as they expand their operations to all 50 states.
