Breitbart/Gravis State Polls of Likely Voters Have Minnesota, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina All Tied Up
COULD MINNESOTA REALLY BE A PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION BATTLEGROUND STATE IN 2016?
According to the most recent Breitbart/Gravis state polls, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and North Carolina are virtual ties and within the margin of error. Could it really be possible that Minnesota, a state that Obama won handily in 2008 and 2012, could be up for grabs in 2016? The same could be said for Pennsylvania. However, if true that a dark blue state like Minnesota is in play, it is no wonder why Team Hillary is sweating this out.
In Minnesota, Clinton and Trump are tied with each having 43 percent of the vote, said Doug Kaplan, the managing director of Gravis Marketing, the Florida-based polling firm that executed the poll.
In Pennsylvania, Clinton leads Trump with 46 percent to his 43 percent, and in North Carolina the former first lady leads Trump 44 percent to the New York City developer’s 43 percent, he said.
Before unlikely voters were filtered out of the sample population, the results were similar with candidates tied in Minnesota and Clinton up one point in North Carolina and up two points in Pennsylvania.
Democratic pollster Patrick Caddell told Breitbart News: “Trump is closing everywhere and states that have not been in play are coming into play, like Minnesota.”
Caddell said those states that had been considered battleground states are not moving as fast, but all are inside the margin of error.
