Changing Demographics Might Be Turning Georgia Into A Swing State
A new poll has Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton nearly tied in the general election. Could Georgia become a swing state?By Ethan Weston | May 15, 2016
It's starting to look like Georgia might turn out to be a swing state in the 2016 election.
A new poll from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution shows that both parties' presumptive nominees — Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump — are neck and neck. Trump has just a 4-point lead over Clinton.
Neither candidate has particularly high favorability among the opposing party, giving the state's independents — who usually lean right — more power going into the general election.
