After trailing Hillary Clinton for weeks in almost every single poll, Donald J. Trump just received some amazing news in one of the most important states in this election!
Trump, who had previously trailed Clinton by nearly 10 points in North Carolina is in a virtual tie with the former Secretary of State, according to a new Monmouth University poll.
The former secretary of state leads Trump among likely North Carolina voters by two percentage points, 44 percent to 42 percent, an advantage that lies within the poll’s margin of error. Seven percent of those polled said they plan to vote for Libertarian Gary Johnson and another 6 percent said they remain undecided. Respondents who identified as independent voters favored Trump, 44 percent to 30 percent, while 15 percent said they support Johnson.
Clinton leads Trump 44.6 percent to 40.4 percent in the POLITICO Battleground States Polling Average for North Carolina, with the two-point margin in the Monmouth poll showing a tightening since early August. In the NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll conducted Aug. 4-10, Clinton led Trump 48 percent to 39 percent.
