While Clinton still leads in Virginia, Trump is closing the gap in the latest CNU Poll. Over the last week Hillary has gained one point but Trump gained six, with Clinton now at 46%, Trump at 39%, Johnson drops to 5% and Stein remains at 1%.
Trump now garners 84% of Republican voters, up by 12% over the last week. The independent voters are also moving toward Trump, from 25% to 39% over the last few weeks. Voters are looking for a change! Trump’s percentage among women voters has grown from 25% to 36%. Among the military Trump now leads 48% to Hillary’s 40%.
Trump is closing the gap even in NOVA where he went from 21% to 34% support over the last week. Hillary lost 6 points in NOVA, from 57% to 51% in just a week. This still makes it difficult for Barbara Comstock to overcome a 17% Clinton lead in NOVA but it’s getting easier. More on that in a coming post.
According to radio talk show host, John Fredericks, polls had McAuliffe up by 9%, he won by 1%. They showed Mark Warner winning by 13%, the reality was he won by 2%. Trump’s in great shape in Virginia!
