More Evidence On Trump’s Strength as a Candidate

Georgia, a state that in 2002 swung decisively for the Republicans and has stayed that way even through the national shakeups of 2006 and 2008, is now in play for the Democrats at the Presidential level.

The poll caught lots of people off guard. Trump and Hillary are essentially tied with Trump at 42.3% and Clinton at 41.4%. What is even more shocking is that 15% of people are undecided.

Trump is, like in Arizona, Utah, and Mississippi, the only Republican nominee who puts the state in play.

Thus far there are zero polls showing any traditional blue state might wind up going to Trump. But we are now up to four bright red states that become purple with Trump as the nominee.

Likewise, North Carolina goes from purple to blue as does Virginia.

Well done, Republicans. Well done.
