Poll: Clinton edges Trump in deep-red Arizona

Greg Nash

A new survey says Hillary Clinton has edged ahead of White House rival Donald Trump in deep-red Arizona, a state the Democratic nominee for president has only carried once in the last 64 years.

{mosads}A poll from Data Orbital released on Friday finds Clinton (D) with 43 percent support among likely voters and Trump (R) with 42 percent — within the survey’s margin of error. Six percent say they’re undecided, and 5 percent support Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson.

That’s in line with other recent polls of Arizona showing the state is a toss-up with 25 days to go until the election.

Trump still holds a 1-point edge in the RealClearPolitics average of state polls, but the only other survey from October, an Emerson University poll released last week, found Clinton ahead by 2 points.

Nationally, Clinton has pulled away from Trump, and she leads in most of the battleground states that will determine the outcome of the election.

Republicans are bracing against a further collapse in the polls for Trump, fearing it could put several traditionally red states in play, such as Arizona, Utah and Georgia.

The Data Orbital survey of 550 likely voters in Arizona was conducted between Oct. 11 and Oct. 12 and has a 4 percentage point margin of error.
