Fox News Poll: Donald Trump Leads Hillary Clinton in Battlegrounds States of Nevada, North Carolina and Ohio
TRUMP IS SURGING IN POLLS …
According to the most recent FOX News polls, Donald Trump is surging in the polls and leads Hillary Clinton in three key battleground states, Nevada, North Carolina and Ohio. The key is that not only is Trump ahead in these battleground states, but he has the momentum at the right time and is surging. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton seems to have come to a halt and only has a complicit, bias and water carrying media propping her up.
Trump surges in Nevada, Donald Trump holds a 3-point lead over Clinton among likely voters in a three-way race that included Gary Johnson, the Libertarian nominee. Trump has 43% of support, Clinton 40% and Johnson’s 8%. In North Carolina, Trump was up by 5 points, leading Clinton by 45% to 40%, with Johnson at 6%. In Ohio, Trump has a 5-point lead over Clinton, with 42% of support. Clinton has 37% in a four-way poll that included Johnson and Jill Stein, the Green Party nominee.
Interestingly enough, Obama won Nevada in 2008 (55%-43%) and 2012 (52%-46%), Ohio in 2008 (52%-47%) and 2012 (51%-48%) and North Carolina in 2008 (50%-49%). Hillary Clinton is under-performing in states that Obama easily won in the past.
Trump has a three-point advantage over Clinton among likely voters in the Silver State (43-40 percent). Libertarian Gary Johnson receives eight percent. Nevada voters also can cast a ballot for “none of these,” and that option takes four percent. Green Party candidate Jill Stein is not on the ballot in Nevada.
Independents back Trump (42 percent) over Clinton (23 percent) and Johnson (21 percent).
The Democrat is trailing expectations among women and younger voters.
In North Carolina, Trump is up by five points among likely voters. He receives 45 percent to Clinton’s 40 percent, and 6 percent favor Johnson. Stein is not on the ballot.
Whites back Trump by a 31-point margin (58-27 percent), while blacks support Clinton by 82 points (85-3 percent).
Independents favor Trump (41 percent) over Clinton (24 percent) and Johnson (14 percent).
The Buckeye State is another must-win for Trump, and the poll finds him up by five points among likely voters: 42-37 percent. Johnson receives six percent and Stein gets two percent.
Trump’s edge over Clinton comes mainly from independents (+20 points) and working-class whites (+26). Clinton’s up by just three points among women. Obama won them by 11 in 2012
