Race Is Close In Utah / Georgia - And That's Bad For Trump
Georgia and Utah are very red states. Georgia hasn't voted for a Democrat for president in a couple of decades, and Utah has done that for over four decades. But both states seem to be turning purple -- mainly because their voters are balking at supporting the current GOP nominee, Donald Trump.
This is exciting news for Democrats. If Trump is having trouble keeping some traditionally Republican states in the fold, he can't just focus on battleground states (like Florida, North Carolina, Ohio, and Pennsylvania). He's going to have to campaign in, and spend some money in Republican states so he doesn't lose ground.
The Hinckley Institute / Salt Lake Tribune Poll was done in June of 1,425 Utah voters, and has a margin of error of 2.5 points.
The Landmark / Rosetta Stone Poll was done on August 1st of 787 Georgia voters, and has a margin of error of 3.5 points.
The SurveyUSA Poll was done between July 29th and 31st of 628 Georgia voters, and has a margin of error of 4 points.
