The latest on the presidential horse race.

Trump and Clinton Tie in Georgia

The great battle between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump is set to take place soon, unless of course Bernie Sanders can pull off the impossible. In the latest WSB-TV/Landmark for Georgia, Trump and Clinton ended up tying.

Which presidential candidate would you vote for?

  • Donald Trump – 42%
  • Hillary Clinton – 41%

Technically Trump won this poll, but his victory was well within the margin of error and is too close to call a real victory. Georgia is a state that should easily vote Republican, but Clinton’s ability to tap into her faux southern drawl helps her win over voters in states that have distinct accents and a strong southern tradition.

If Trump sticks to his plan, continues hammering home the anti-immigration platform, and focuses on making his platform attractive to Republican voters, he should easily score a victory in Georgia over Clinton.

For Clinton to win a state like Georgia, it would take a miracle. The last time Georgia voted Democrat was in 1992, which resulted in the election of Bill Clinton. Since then, they have voted Republican, by more than 50 percent, every single election year. The Democrats are not popular in Georgia, but if Clinton can play up her ties to Bill, she may be able to secure a few unlikely votes in a more than foreign political theater.
