from Bill Still
lass=”” >Good evening. I’m still reporting on Trump.
The second new poll tonight shows Trump capturing the lead in yet another important swing state, Iowa.
According to a new Monmouth University poll released this afternoon, Trump now leads Clinton 44 to 42 percent, with Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson at 6% and Green Party candidate Jill Stein at 1%.
According to Patrick Murray of Monmouth:
“Iowa could be the leading edge of a Midwest push for Trump.”
Trump had a 4-point edge over Clinton among independents – 39 to 35%. Clinton had a 21-point edge among women, but that was more than cancelled out by Trump’s 27-point lead among men – 56% to 29%.
The survey was taken from July 8 thru 11th – immediately after FBI Director James Comey’s Congressional testimony on July 7th.
I’m Still reporting from Washington. Good day.
