Axiom & Remington Research Group Survey Eight Battleground States

Surveys | October 30, 2016

KANSAS CITY, MO – Axiom Strategies and Remington Research Group surveyed eight battleground states Sunday, October 30th. The eight states are the same states that were surveyed one week ago. At the time, Remington found a presidential race that was still very much competitive.

The newest round of polling was conducted on the heels of the FBI renewing an investigation of Hillary Clinton regarding classified emails. These surveys are the first to be publicly released in the country that were fielded after news regarding the FBI investigation broke last Friday.

Significant findings are that Trump has broken a tie in Florida and has opened up a four-point lead over Clinton, closed the gap in Pennsylvania and Colorado and has expanded his leads in Nevada and Ohio. North Carolina remains close with Trump’s three-point lead a week ago now down to a two-point lead.

Last week, we found a presidential race where Hillary Clinton held a clear advantage. This week, we find an increasingly competitive race with just eight days to go. Trump appears to be holding strong in his must-win states and Colorado remains within the margin of error. The data also show that Pennsylvania has moved into the margin of error category.

“The presidential race remains very competitive as we move into the final stretch. Hillary maintains an advantage leading in Colorado and Pennsylvania, but at this point anything can happen,” said Titus Bond, Director of Remington Research Group.
