The GOP nominee, down 12 points in August, is polling even with Hillary Clinton in Colorado…
A new set of polls shows Donald Trump making up significant ground in the state of Colorado. Once thought to be out of reach, Trump now leads Hillary Clinton by 1 point or trails by 1 point, depending on the poll.
Colorado is routinely considered a battleground state in presidential elections. Democrats won the state in 2012, 2008, and 1992, while Republicans were victorious from 1968 to 1988 and 1996 to 2004.
Clinton regularly maintained a lead in the Centennial State prior to September, boasting a 12-point lead following the Democratic National Convention. Clinton’s lead was so expansive that her campaign pulled its Colorado television advertisements in late July. By mid-August, pro-Clinton super PAC Priorities USA stopped airing ads there, too.
That decision may ultimately have given Trump, who began airing ads in Colorado in late August, the opening he needed to appeal to these voters.
The Real Clear Politics polling average in Colorado finds Trump at 41.0%, Clinton at 40.5%, Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson at 9.0%, and Green Party candidate Jill Stein at 3.3%.
