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 Trump’s 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 ― it’s just one survey. Others show Trump ahead, and HuffPost Pollster tracking shows the conspiracy theorist-in-chief maintaining his advantage in the state.

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.

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.

not as a serious political candidate.

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