Clinton neck-and-neck with Trump in deep-red Mississippi

Democrats could win Mississippi in this fall's presidential election for the first time in 40 years, according to a new poll.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is running almost even with Republican front-runner Donald Trump in the deep-red state, a Mason-Dixon Polling & Research survey released Tuesday found.

Trump has 46 percent support, while Clinton pulls in 43 percent within the margin of error of 4 percentage points.

The last time a Democrat won Mississippi was 1976, when Jimmy Carter defeated Gerald Ford.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney beat President Obama in Mississippi in 2012 by 12 points.

Clinton is closing the gap on Trump primarily because of his weakness among women voters.

Clinton takes 47 percent support among women, with Trump at 40 percent. She also attracted 15 percent of the vote from white Republican women, the poll found.
