Hillary Clinton has a slim lead over Donald Trump in the swing state of Nevada, a new poll shows
In the Monmouth University survey
released Monday, the breakdown of support in the Silver State goes like this:
- Clinton: 45 percent
- Trump: 41 percent
- Libertarian Gary Johnson: 5 percent
- None of these candidates: 4 percent
- Trump: 88 percent
- Clinton: 6 percent
- Johnson: 2 percent
- Clinton: 92 percent
- Trump: 3 percent
- Johnson: 3 percent
- Trump: 39 percent
- Clinton: 37 percent
- Johnson: 10 percent
- None of these candidates: 8 percent
The poll's margin of error is plus or minus 4.9 points.
"One question at this early stage is whether Clinton can hold onto the small but crucial number of Republican voters who are currently supporting her or whether Trump can win them over as well as Democrats backing Johnson," poll director Patrick Murray says in a statement.
"Otherwise, this contest looks to be lining up along familiar demographic divides where turnout will determine the ultimate outcome."
Meanwhile, the race to replace
retiring veteran Democratic leader Sen. Harry Reid is basically a tie, with GOP Rep. Joe Heck leading Democrat Catherine Cortez Masto, a former state attorney general, 42 percent to 40 percent, the poll shows.
Tom Jones from the Independent American Party got 5 percent, 6 percent chose "none of these candidates" and 7 percent were undecided.
