Polls In Three Battleground States Show Widening Lead For Clinton, Trump In Free Fall

More good news for Hillary! Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump in three key battleground states after the conclusion of both of the political conventions, including in all-important Ohio, according to a trio of new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist polls.

In Iowa, Clinton is ahead of Trump by four points among registered voters, 41 percent to 37 percent, with the rest saying neither, other or they’re undecided.


In Ohio, Clinton holds a five-point advantage over her Republican opponent, 43 percent to 38 percent.


And in Pennsylvania, Clinton has expanded her lead over Trump to 11 points among registered voters, 48 percent to 37 percent.


Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion, said, “These three states are key ingredients in Trump’s formula for success and a region where Trump was hoping [running mate Mike] Pence would provide a boost. Yet Trump is coming up short in his bid to change the electoral map. Given that Clinton has many more paths to the White House, these poll results are a warning sign for the Trump effort.”
