On Thursday, Democrat-leaning firm PPP released a poll of Virginia voters showing Clinton leading Trump by 3 points in the Old Dominion. Last year, PPP showed Clinton leading Trump by 10 points in Virginia. Since then, Clinton’s favorablity has decreased, while Trump’s has improved.

Trump is still slightly more unpopular than Clinton in Virginia, yet the head-to-head match-up is within the margin of error. Barack Obama defeated Mitt Romney by just 4 points in Virginia, essentially the same result currently polled between Trump and Clinton.

So, even though 60 percent of voters have an unfavorable view of Trump, he is tied with Clinton in Virginia. Clinton leads among women by just 11 points, only slightly better than Obama’s 9-point margin with women against Romney. Trump leads Clinton by 4 points among men, the same margin that Romney won against Obama.

When third-party candidates Gary Johnson and Jill Stein are added to the match-up, though, Trump’s edge among men jumps to 7 points, while Clinton’s edge among women remains at 11 points.

A PPP survey of Pennsylvania conducted in early June shows a very close race in the Keystone State. A head-to-head match-up between Clinton and Trump is tied, with each drawing 44 percent support. There is an enormous gender gap in the commonwealth, with Trump holding a slight edge.

Clinton leads Trump by 20 points among women in Pennsylvania. Trump, however has a 22-point lead among men. With third party candidates included, Clinton has an 18 point lead among women, while Trump has an 18 point lead among men.


In Florida, a PPP survey from early June finds Trump leading Clinton by 1 point. In the past 4 Presidential elections, Florida has been decided by less than 5 points. President Obama defeated Mitt Romney by less than 1 point in 2012 in the Sunshine State.

I see that Trump has fired his campaign manager, Cory Lewandowski. Apparently Ivanka and hubby finally convinced him that Cory was not doing the job.
The BBC story on this suggested either he quit or his underlings stabbed him in the back. It did not hint about him being fired.

Edit: This is the first time I have seen the BBC jump the gun. They have retracted that story and now have several about Trump firing him.
