The race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump is getting hotter and fiercer. The New York Times poll show that Hillary is ahead of Trump by two points, that is 46%-44%. However that is in a two-way race but, both are tied in a four way race. This indicates that the third party candidates could to a large extent influence the electoral-college map.
In a Quinnipiac University poll that was released on Wednesday, Hillary received a 57% unfavorable rating while Trump received a 59% unfavorable rating. This is an open door for Jill Stein and Gary Johnson. This recent poll however had Gary Johnson at 13% and Jill Stein at 4%.
Neither Gary nor Jill have reached the 15% required to enable them participate in the national debate. As a result some third- party supporters might have to switch to either the Republican or the Democrats.
The news just got in however that Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton in Ohio with three points. This is great news for Trump as well as his supporters. Trump is at 48 while Hillary is 5 points behind at 43 in a two-way race and trailing 42-39 in a four-way race. Another poll has come in which says Trump has just gone up two points in Colorado.
In Nevada, Clinton was previously ahead of Trump at 44-42, with Johnson at 5 percent. In the recent Monmouth poll, Johnson has moved up to 8 percent, and Trump now leads Clinton, 44 percent to 42 percent.
