A new poll shows Hillary Clinton running ahead of Donald Trump in Arizona, where a Democratic presidential candidate has carried the state only once in the last 64 years.
A survey by Phoenix-based OH Predictive Insights found Clinton taking 46.5 percent support over Trump at 42.2 percent.
Mitt Romney defeated President Obama in Arizona in 2012 by 9 points.
shocking to think that a Democratic presidential candidate would carry
Arizona if the election were held today, considering that every
statewide office in Arizona is held by a Republican as well as
significant majorities in the Arizona House and Senate,” Wes Gullett, a
partner at OH Predictive
Insights, told the Phoenix Business Journal.
“Arizona should be a reliable red state.”
