Washington Post/SurveyMonkey Poll: Clinton 47% Trump 43%

Hillary-DonaldAn extensive Washington Post/SurveyMonkey poll of all fifty states found Hillary Clinton ahead of Donald Trump in Pennsylvania.

In a head-to-head matchup, the Democratic nominee leads 47% to 43%.

When Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson and Green Party nominee Jill Stein are included the margin decreases. In that scenario, Clinton is ahead 41% to 38%. Johnson and Stein received 12% and 4% respectively.

This survey has some red flags. For instance, Texas and Mississippi are described as toss-ups states. These are heavily Republican states that haven’t voted for a Democrat since 1976. Meanwhile, a toss-up state like Iowa is categorized as Lean Republican.

For what it is worth, PA is deemed to be in the Lean Democratic category. Overall, the WaPo/SurveyMonkey polls have Hillary Clinton with 244 electoral votes and Donald Trump with 126. 168 electoral votes are toss-ups. It takes a majority of the 538 available electoral votes, 270, to win the White House.

The Washington Post/SurveyMonkey poll used an online-based sampling method and was conducted from August 9th to September 1st. They surveyed 2,863 registered voters in Pennsylvania. The margin of error was not revealed.

  1. Does Trump think he looks “Presidential”??? That’s a joke. He looks like a constipated, angry old lady with little hands.

  2. The Republicans need to take their Trump Lumps like men. Their party made this disposable bed; now they will have to lay on it.

    Trump is a national embarrassment. That the Republicans let that walking abortion get this far is a total indictment of that party.

  3. Trump is dragging down the ticket and hurting our terrific Senator Pat Toomey! We need to do some triage here. Dump Trump, re-elect Pat Toomey.
