New Poll Shows Presidential Race Tightening in Kansas Between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton
Can Democrat Hillary Clinton actually compete in Kansas?
The Sunflower State hasn’t gone for a Democrat in a presidential election since 1964, but the latest KSN News Poll has Clinton within 5 percentage points of Republican Donald Trump.
Trump leads Clinton 44 percent to 39 percent in the poll of 566 likely voters, which was conducted by SurveyUSA between Aug. 3 and 7. That’s compared to the 11-point lead Trump had over Clinton in KSN’s July poll and Mitt Romney’s 22-point victory in the state in 2012.
Libertarian Gary Johnson attracted support from 8 percent of respondents, and another 9 percent are undecided.
