Bloomberg Poll: Trump Leads By Five Points In Ohio

Donald Trump holds a five-point advantage among likely voters in the swing state Ohio, according to a new Bloomberg poll.

The swing state is currently in a tossup, according to TPM’s Electoral Scoreboard.

Trump leads the race in the Buckeye State, 48-43, when facing Hillary Clinton in a head-to-head election match.

The businessman’s five-point lead holds up in the four-way race, leading Clinton, 44-39, with Libertarian Gary Johnson behind at 10 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein at 3 percent.

Bloomberg has not previously polled Ohio voters, but a CBS/YouGov poll released this month indicated a seven-point Clinton lead in Ohio, 46-39, with Johnson at 7 percent and Stein at 2 percent.

This poll was conducted by Selzer & Company for Bloomberg Politics from Sept. 9-12. The survey included 802 likely Ohio voters and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percent.

TPM’s PollTracker Average for the election in Ohio shows a tossup, with Trump leading Clinton, 45.9 to 44.5.
