Pollster John Zogby: Obama Voters Are Crossing Over to Trump

By    |   Monday, 22 Aug 2016 09:50 PM

A group of voters that once supported President George W. Bush before defecting to back President Barack Obama is once again switching sides and getting behind Donald Trump, pollster John Zogby told Newsmax TV Monday.

During an interview on "Newsmax Prime," Zogby told host J.D. Hayworth the race for the White House is "very, very close."

"What's very interesting here is that initially, weekly Wal-Mart shoppers who we have been tracking for a decade and a half now, and NASCAR fans, they were solidly with George W. Bush," said Zogby, whose most recent poll  has Democrat Hillary Clinton leading Trump by 2 points.

"And then their demographics actually changed in the last seven or eight years following the recession. They were solidly with Barack Obama in 2008 and in 2012. They're swinging back now, back over to Donald Trump."

Zogby, the author of "We are Many, We are One: Neo-Tribes and Tribal Analytics in 21st Century America," was asked about a USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll  that has Trump up by more than a point.

"What it means obviously is the post-convention bounces are over," Zogby said. "This is a very tight race. Whether a poll has Donald Trump up by actually 2 points in the last couple of hours in Southern California, or mine that has Hillary Clinton up by 2 points, the bottom line is this is a very, very close race right now."
