Trump Polls Just One Point Ahead In New Arizona Poll


Donald Trump polls just one point ahead of Hillary Clinton in Arizona in a new Monmouth University poll of the state’s likely voters.

Recent polls of the Grand Canyon State indicate the 2016 presidential election will be tight, despite that the state favored Republican candidates in the last three elections.

Trump leads the poll, 46-45, with Libertarian Gary Johnson following at 4 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein at 1 percent.

The former Secretary of State came out ahead by five points, 39-34, among likely voters in a recent poll from Arizona Republic/Morrison Institute for Public Policy/Cronkite News.

Monmouth University has not recently polled the general election in Arizona.

The Monmouth University poll surveyed 401 likely Arizona voters via live telephone interview from Oct. 21-24, with a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percent.

TPM’s PollTracker Average for the presidential election in Arizona shows a tossup, with Trump leading Clinton, 43 to 42.6.
