The Clinton-Trump race to the White House is ongoing and tougher at that. At the just concluded survey in Ohio and Pennsylvania, Trump’s popularity in the black community could not be any clearer.
According to a survey organized by Marist College Institute for Public Opinion, Trump got a 0% vote from black voters while Clinton amassed an encouraging 88% votes from the black community.
On the reverse, Clinton obtained a 33% of white votes while Trump got 43% of white votes.
In a state like Ohio where 11 percent of the 848 registered voters in the poll were African American, Clinton’s popularity towered in crystal clear figures. With an 88% votes from the black community, Clinton is clearly their go-to candidate.
In Pennsylvania, Clinton won the day as well. Of the 829 registered voters, 10% are African Americans. Ahead by 9 points, Clinton went away with 91% black votes and Trump had 0%.
For the majority white voters in Pennsylvania, Clinton and Trump had a 40-40 percent tie in the polls.
Cumulatively, the survey shows that Clinton and Trump is at a tie of 37% vote of registered voters in Iowa; Clinton takes 38% of votes in Ohio while Trump has 35%; Clinton gets 43% in Pennsylvania while Trump gets 35%.
The Clinton-Trump race to America’s presidency is indeed going to be one of the most recalled contest in political history. Should anyone of them win, history will be made.
“The good news for Hillary Clinton is that she is still even or ahead of Donald Trump in these three critical states in the aftermath of the FBI’s report on her email controversy… The bad news for her is the contest has gotten closer in all of these states, and the issue does not seem to be going away anytime soon.” – Lee Miringoff, Director of the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion.
As Clinton’s case with the FBI over the email accusation proceeds, it is believed to be the only thing that threatens her success in the race to the White House.
From polls obtained from the 50 states in the United States, the results of the Clinton-Trump race are pretty close. Despite the fluctuations, Hillary Clinton still in the lead though.
