Iowa Polls Trump vs Clinton September 2016

According to new polls Donald Trump is making serious inroads in Iowa, long considered one of the most volatile swing states in the country, Hillary Clinton boasted a lead of 5% here just a few months ago, however a new poll has the real estate mogul 8 points ahead.

Trump appears to be gaining great support among white voters in the state especially among the working class. Iowa is 92% white and many seem to have become disillusioned with the direction the country is taking and so have opted for a change. President Obama had 2 relatively comfortable wins here in 2008 and 2012 after 2 very close elections in 2000 and 2004.

There are a mere 6 electoral college votes available in the state, which would only make a difference in the case of a very tight race. Many commentators believe that winning here is much more important for Trump, as his path to victory is much more difficult than Clinton`s.
