New CNN poll shows Donald Trump leading in Colorado and surging in Pennsylvania
I am no longer looking at national polls because it is the individual state polls which really matter and in recent weeks we have seen Donald Trump making headway in several swing states, so much in fact that he now has a clear path to 270 Electoral College votes.
A new CNN poll is out which shows Donald Trump now in the lead in Colorado and surging in Pennsylvania, here is more:
In a four way match up, Trump leads Clinton 42 percent to 41 percent in Colorado, according to a new CNN/ORC poll.
Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson raked in 13 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein received three percent.
In a head-to-head match up between Trump and Clinton in Colorado, the poll shows she leads by two points, 49 percent to 47 percent.
The margin of error for the survey is plus or minus three points.
This is a very slim lead and within the margin of error but it is still pretty telling he is even close in a state which leans heavily Democratic.
Here are the results of the CNN poll in Pennsylvania:
In Pennsylvania, a new CNN/ORC poll reveals that Clinton leads Trump by one point in a four way match up, 45 to 44 percent. Johnson has six percent in the Pennsylvania poll, while Stein received three percent.
Earlier this month, polls showed Clinton leading Trump by as many as eight points.
In a head-to-head match up, the Pennsylvania poll reveals Clinton leads by three points ahead of the Republican nominee, 50 percent to 47 percent.
Hillary Clinton still leads the billionaire businessman but he has cut a once fairly solid lead down and made it for all intents and purposes a dead heat.
Donald Trump clearly has the momentum heading into tonight’s debate. Tonight’s debate could be a make or break moment in the campaign for both candidates. We already know the mainstream media will declare Hillary Clinton the winner in the debate but it will be interesting to see how the voters actually respond to the debate when the first post-debate state polls come out.
