Florida and Ohio have always been all-important states during every presidential campaign.
As America’s demographics evolve, some states long considered either “blue” or “red” are now in flux, and sometimes dubbed “purple.”
This has been an election like no other and the volatility of the polls reflects this. Even one polling firm that consistently leans to the left is showing a shift in support away from Hillary Clinton.
Conservative Tribune has the story:
According to the latest Reuters/Ipsos poll (via Yahoo!), Florida and Ohio, two states that were considered likely wins for Clinton in previous polls, were now up for grabs.
A separate poll from Reuters/Ipsos also showed that Clinton’s 8 percent national lead among likely voters at the end of August had vanished.
“Clinton now has an 83 percent chance of winning the election by an average of 47 votes in the Electoral College, the body that ultimately selects the president. In late August, the States of the Nation estimated that Clinton had a 95 percent chance of winning by an average of 108 electoral votes.”
North Carolina, Nevada, Michigan and Wisconsin — long considered locks for Clinton in most of the liberal-leaning polls — are now battleground toss-ups.
Bear in mind that these results were calculated before Hillary made her divisive “basket of deplorables” gaff, then fell ill during the 9/11 memorial in New York City.
