GfK Poll: Clinton advantage fueled by growing enthusiasm

GfK Poll: Clinton advantage fueled by growing enthusiasm”

A stronger-than-expected US economic report on Friday came at a good time for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, although Republican contender Donald Trump's campaign blasted the numbers as "dismal".

"Just for the record, in this country, the Unites States of America, the voters decide our election", she said. "I can't vote for Trump".

Clinton voters are also more enthusiastic about their choice than other voters, the poll showed. His level of support has remained below 40 percent among all likely voters since the beginning of September. Her campaign is actively competing for Arizona, a state that has voted for the Democrat in only one presidential race since 1952, and she is also spending money in Georgia, a reliably Republican state over the past two decades.

Compared to the 2012 electoral map, Trump needs to hold the competitive states of North Carolina, Arizona, Georgia, Utah and Nebraska's Omaha-based district, but also win Iowa and OH - two states where polls have shown him with a narrow lead - as well as Florida, Nevada, New Hampshire and Maine's second district.

An Associated Press review of campaign finance filings finds that her campaign, the Democratic National Committee and Democratic parties in 12 states have more than three times as many paid employees as Trump's campaign and the main Republican organizations supporting him.

"She also planted an fantastic vegetable garden at the White House, and I can promise you, if I win, I will take good care of it, Michelle", Clinton said.

The strength of the Democratic turnout effort appears to be paying dividends in states where voting is underway.

Troubles with President Barack Obama's signature health care law have given Trump a late opening to warn voters against putting another Democrat in the White House.

"I hope you will come out and vote because it's going to be a close election".

Mrs. Obama also accused Trump of manipulating voter's turnout on November 8 by his statement that the general election might be rigged. Like most states, Florida gives the power to redraw its maps to state lawmakers.

The presidential candidates and dozens of outside groups involved in the race are also due to file their final major fundraising reports before Election Day.

Perhaps more than anyone else in the 2016 campaign, Michelle Obama has framed the choice between Clinton and Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump as a question of character.

Conway said that Trump has "the most active campaign schedule of the two candidates by far". The other website asks people to sign up through Facebook and connects them directly based on who they want to vote for and where they live.

Neither Clinton nor her Democratic running mate, Virginia Sen.

In an interview focused largely on foreign policy, Trump said defeating Islamic State is a higher priority than persuading Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to step down, playing down a long-held goal of USA policy.

Trump called his remarks on the video "locker room talk", dismissed the accusations as "fiction" and said of several accusers that they aren't attractive enough to merit his attention.

Clinton leads female likely voters by a 22 point margin in the poll, and even has a slight 5 point lead among men.

Clinton has begun to make inroads among younger voters, but has been held back by her unpopularity.

The survey spoke with 2,150 respondents.
