Just a few weeks ago, Hillary cancelled TV commercials in Virginia and Colorado because she thought she had them locked up tighter than a drum. She had double digit leads in both states but her polling numbers are going down faster than a lead balloon.
Clinton’s numbers dropped in Virginia as well from as high as 12 points to the current 3, which is within the margin of error. She is also in danger of losing Nevada, Michigan, Pennsylvania and New Hampshire, all once considered safely in Hillary’s columns. She is behind in Ohio, Florida and Iowa, which Obama won both times he ran.
Polls are showing Donald Trump gaining on Hillary Clinton in Colorado, even as team Clinton thought the Centennial State was wrapped up. Democrats now worry that mail-in voting and lack of enthusiasm among progressives could be hurting Clinton in Colorado.
Even Hillary’s internal polling is showing the race tightening and outside surveys tend to agree; Trump is on the rise in Colorado despite spending little time or money there.
Aside from funding two dozen offices and paying up to 200 staffers, team Clinton stopped putting campaign money into Colorado as far back as the beginning of August, imagining that Colorado was firmly in the Clinton camp. But the new polling is shaking Democrats’ self-assuredness, the Washington Post says.
