Pennsylvania For Clinton -- Missouri & N. Carolina Toss-Ups
The ABC 27 News / Susquehanna Polling & Research Survey was done between July 31st and August 4th of a random sample of 772 likely voters in Pennsylvania, and has a 3.5 point margin of error.
The Public Policy Polling Survey was done between August 5th and 7th of a random sample of 830 likely voters in North Carolina, and has a margin of error of 3.4 points.
The Missouri Scout / Remington Research Group Poll was done on August 5th and 6th of a random sample of 1,280 likely voters in Missouri, and has a 3 point margin of error.
These polls show Hillary Clinton has a fairly comfortable 9 point lead over Donald Trump in Pennsylvania -- a state Trump is counting on to put him over the top. But there is even worse news in two other states. North Carolina and Missouri usually wind up in the Republican column, but that is now in doubt.
Clinton has a 2 point lead in North Carolina, while Trump leads by 2 in Missouri -- but both of those edges are within the poll's margin of error. That means the race is extremely close in both states, and could go either way.
