In terms of politics, Wisconsin is a lot like Massachusetts. They’re willing to elect a Republican governor once in a while, but when it comes to presidential elections they prefer Democrats.
Donald Trump may be about to change that trend, however. According to recent polls, Trump could actually win Wisconsin in November.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Clinton’s Wisconsin lead collapses, Trump within striking distance
Donald Trump is now within striking distance of a fading Hillary Clinton in Wisconsin, according to a poll released on Wednesday, providing him with another possible path to securing the electoral votes required to capture the presidency.
According to a poll conducted by Marquette Law School, 42 percent of registered voters said they are supporting the Democratic presidential nominee and 37 percent are backing her Republican opponent Donald Trump. Nineteen percent expressed no preference. In the previous poll conducted Aug. 4-7, Clinton was supported by 46 percent of registered voters and Trump by 36 percent, with 16 percent not having a preference.
Among likely voters, the margin is even narrower, with Clinton clinging to 45 percent support and Trump at 42 percent in the new poll. Of that number, 10 percent say they will not support either candidate. That is a drop for the Democratic candidate since the August poll, where 52 percent of likely voters supported her, while Trump was backed by 37 percent.
Trump’s path to victory on the electoral map is continuing to expand as Hillary’s shrinks.
If he can flip Wisconsin to red, he can do it anywhere.
Democrats should be hearing alarm bells right about now.
