Trump, Clinton Statistically Tied in Georgia

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are in a statistical tie in Georgia, a new poll shows.

The survey by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution gives the GOP presumptive presidential nominee, 45 percent, a 4-point lead over the Democratic presidential front-runner Clinton's 41 percent, but within the poll’s 4.26 percent margin of error.

The newspaper notes the survey also shows deep division among voters in the Peach State, including on:
  • A hypothetical match-up between Sen. Bernie Sanders and Trump, with the Vermont lawmaker beating the billionaire businessman 47 percent to 42 percent
  •  Favorability, with Sanders earning the highest rating, 47 percent, compared with 40 percent for Trump and 31 for Clinton.
  • The choice of independent voters, who are evenly split over the leading candidates
  • Voters' support of Clinton's campaign, with half viewing their vote chiefly as a vote against Trump; among voters supporting Trump, a slim majority say they're voting out of opposition to Clinton.
The last Democrat to carry Georgia was Bill Clinton in 1992, when he beat incumbent President George H.W. Bush by less than 15,000 votes; in 1996, Clinton lost the state by about 27,000 votes, Politico reports.
