Poll: Clinton, Trump Virtually Tied in Missouri
The latest poll by the Mason-Dixon Polling & Research survey has revealed that Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are virtually tied in Missouri.
The Hill reports:
Newly official Democratic nominee Clinton leads Trump, 41 to 40 percent, in the Mason-Dixon Polling & Research survey released Friday.
Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson ranks third, with 9 percent, while Green Party candidate Jill Stein takes 1 percent. Another 9 percent are undecided.
Pollsters also found that Clinton and the GOP nominee are each viewed unfavorably by about half of Missouri’s registered voters.
Fifty-one percent see Trump unfavorably, while 33 percent view him favorably.
Forty-five percent view Clinton unfavorably, meanwhile, and 42 percent favorably.
Sixteen percent are neutral about Trump in the Show Me State, while 13 percent feel similarly about Clinton.
Mason-Dixon Polling & Research conducted its latest sampling of 625 registered voters in Missouri from July 23 to 24. It has a 4 percentage point margin of error.
Mason-Dixon pollster Brad Coker on Friday said winning Missouri this November requires Clinton or Trump having superior voter enthusiasm.
“Really, Missouri right now looks like a turnout game, which is really kind of the same thing that is going on nationally,” he told The St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
“[It’s] because neither choice is popular … whoever is more successful in convincing their people that their [candidate] isn’t as bad as the other one [wins].”
Trump leads Clinton by approximately 1 point nationwide, according to the latest RealClearPolitics average of polls.
