A new Marquette University Law School poll of likely voters was released Wednesday and shows a startling lead for Hillary Clinton in the key electoral state of Wisconsin.
Clinton leads Trump by 15 percentage points, with 52 percent support to Trump’s 37 percent support. Seven percent said they would vote for neither candidate, while 3 percent said they were undecided.
Clinton led Trump by just 4 percentage points in July before both parties convened their nominating conventions last month.
Get that? She led him by four in July. By 15 in August. That’s almost quadrupling her lead. Wisconsin is a swing state and did not go for Trump in the primary.
But wait, there’s more:
In a four-way contest including Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson and Green Party nominee Jill Stein, Clinton leads with 47 percent, followed by Trump at 34 percent, Johnson at 9 percent and Stein at 3 percent with 4 percent undecided and 2 percent choosing neither candidate.
Even with the third parties she’s still over 12 ahead in this poll. And why is it so?
From USA Today:
Trump was viewed favorably by 27% and unfavorably by 65%, not much of a change from the previous month. Clinton appeared to get a slight boost, with her favorable number ticking up to 43%, with 53% unfavorable.
Fifty-eight percent said Clinton had the qualifications to be president, while only 29% said Trump had those qualifications.
Ninety percent of Democrats said they’ll vote for Clinton while only 79% of Republicans said they’ll vote for Trump.
People don’t like Donald Trump. They just don’t.
On Sunday, we will see how this poll stacks up against others and against the national polls, but there’s no question that it’s a bad, bad result for Donald. As have been most polls lately.
