Sad New Poll Shows Trump And Clinton Basically Tied In Missouri

Last edited Tue Aug 23, 2016, 07:52 PM - Edit history (1)

Source: Huffington Post

The Show Me State went to Republican candidates in the last four presidential elections.

Hillary Clinton is essentially tied with Donald Trump in red-tinted Missouri, according to a new poll.

Clinton garners 43 percent support to Trumpís 44 percent among likely Missouri voters in a Monmouth University poll that has a margin of error of 4.9 percent.

While the survey is strikingly bad news for Trump ― Missouri went for the Republican in each of the past four presidential contests ― itís just one survey. Others show Trump ahead, and HuffPost Pollster tracking shows the conspiracy theorist-in-chief maintaining his advantage in the state.

Kudos to the headline writer.

2. All in all good news, considering the state has leaned Rethug since 2000.

Dubya won it by 3.3% in 2000 and 7.2% in '04; Obama nearly clinched it in '08 (lost by 0.1%), but then lost it by 9.4% the last time.

Given that trend, a tie sounds good.

3. Not too bad.

I saw a map of where Southern Baptists live, and I was amazed that there's so many of them in Missouri. If Clinton is tied there, it bodes well for elsewhere.

7. The point is that even one poll that shows them statistically tied is a very good thing

for a very red state.

5. How is that sad?

If HRC is even close in redneck Missouri then this election will not be close.

8. The headline writer is mocking Trump's tweets, which often disparage people

with the word "sad."

20. Originally Huff Post announced that they would only be covering Trump as entertainment,

not as a serious political candidate.

But when they had no choice, they started adding that disclaimer.
