Trump Surges to 5 Point Lead Over Hillary in Battleground State of Pennsylvania

Trump speech

Hillary and her media allies have been touting polls for two weeks now and insisting the election is all but over. They neglect to mention the fact that it’s not even Labor Day yet, the time when most Americans typically start paying close attention to the race.

Even so, one new poll shows Trump with a lead in Pennsylvania.

CBS 8 reports:

Trump Leads Clinton by 5+ Points in the Key Battleground State of Pennsylvania

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has surged to a 5-point lead over democratic rival Hillary Clinton in the key battleground state of Pennsylvania as per the poll conducted by CEPEX Center for Excellence in Project Execution, on Friday (19th Aug 2016).

Trump leads Clinton 41.9 percent to 36.5 percent, with 21.5 percent voters undecided. Trump’s lead is just inside the margin of error and marks the first time that the Republican candidate is catching up in the traditional stronghold state of the democratic party.

The survey contacted around 1,000 registered voters. Results are estimated to be accurate within 7.1 percentage points, 19 times out of 20. According to CEPEX analysis, the error percentage is high due to the results obtained from just one day of polling. Subsequent polling would be required to reduce the error percentage.

It will be interesting to see if Trump’s lead here holds or even grows in the coming weeks.
