They say that whoever wins Ohio wins the presidency…and guess what???
A new Monmouth University poll released Wednesday shows Clinton with a 2-point lead in Ohio, 44% to 42%.
Another 6% of likely voters are undecided, 5% say they support Libertarian Gary Johnson, 1% will vote for Green Party nominee Jill Stein and another 1% support another candidate.
Clinton’s narrow lead in the poll breaks a streak of surveys that had shown Trump ahead. Since Labor Day, Trump had led in all but one public poll of Ohio. But earlier polls portrayed a toss-up race or slight Clinton advantage — including Monmouth’s previous poll, in mid-August, which had Clinton ahead by 4 points.
The new Monmouth poll, which surveyed 405 likely voters, was conducted Saturday-Tuesday — making it slightly more recent than the other post-debate poll in the state: a Quinnipiac University survey conducted last Tuesday-Sunday that gave Trump a 5-point lead.
