Clinton Holds 3-Point Lead over Trump in Arizona, Says Poll
A new Arizona poll by OH Predictive Insights revealed that Hillary Clinton has a 3 point lead over Donald Trump.
The Hill reports:
A new survey by Phoenix-based OH Predictive Insights found the Democratic nominee leading her GOP counterpart by 3 points, 45 percent to 42 percent, in a four-way contest with Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson and likely Green Party nominee Jill Stein.
Johnson took 4 percent, Stein got 1 percent, and 8 percent remained undecided.
A OH Predictive Insights poll from June found Clinton leading Trump by 4 points in the state.
Pollster Mike Noble noted that Trump’s recent feud with parents of an Muslim U.S. soldier killed in the Iraq War may be having an impact on his numbers. The real estate mogul has tangled with Khizr Khan — the father of Army Capt. Humayun Khan, who was killed by a suicide bomber in 2004 — after he delivered a scathing rebuke of Trump during his speech last week at the Democratic National Convention.
Arizona has been viewed as safe GOP territory. Former President Bill Clinton was the last Democrat to carry the state, in 1996. The former secretary of State’s campaign has been zeroing in on more GOP-leaning states as she seeks to expand the map in a tighter-than-expected race against Trump.

The poll was conducted on Monday and surveyed 996 likely voters.
