Clinton Holds Narrow Leads in Five Battleground States
According to recent Public Policy Polling surveys, Hillary Clinton is leading Donald Trump by several points. If she maintains this lead, she could clinch the nomination and become the President-elect.
The Hill reports:
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton leads Republican Donald Trump by single digits in five critical battleground states, according to post-debate polls for each battleground.
Clinton tops Trump in Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Virginia in Public Policy Polling (PPP) surveys out Thursday.
She owns a 7-point edge in Colorado, grabbing 51 percent to Trump’s 44 percent.
Clinton also boasts a 3-point advantage in Florida, squeaking past the billionaire 48 to 45 percent.
The former secretary of State tops Trump by 4 points in North Carolina, netting 49 percent of likely voters there to Trump’s 45 percent.
Clinton is also ahead in Pennsylvania, 49 to 44 percent, and grabs 49 percent to Trump’s 43 percent in Virginia.
Pollsters also found that Trump trails the former first lady in all five states when Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson and Green Party nominee Jill Stein are factored into the race.
She has 6-point leads over Trump in that scenario in Colorado, Pennsylvania and Virginia and a 2-point lead in both Florida and North Carolina.
PPP conducted its latest polls from Sept. 27 to 28, after the general election’s first presidential debate. The margin of error is 3.7 percentage points in Colorado, 3.4 points in Florida and Virginia, and 3.3 points in North Carolina and Pennsylvania.
Clinton leads Trump by 3 points nationwide, according to the latest RealClearPolitics average of samplings.
