nine weeks until Election Day, Donald Trump is within striking distance
in the Upper Midwest, but Hillary Clinton’s strength in many
battlegrounds and some traditional Republican strongholds gives her a
big electoral college advantage, according to a 50-state Washington
The massive survey highlights a critical weakness in Trump’s candidacy —
an unprecedented deficit for a Republican among college-educated white
voters, especially women. Those voters have been loyal Republican voters
in recent elections, but Trump is behind Clinton with this group across
much of the country, including in some solidly red states.
The survey of all 50 states is the largest sample ever undertaken by The
Post, which joined with SurveyMonkey and its online polling resources
to produce the results.
