Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are neck and neck in the race for Florida and North Carolina’s electoral votes, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll released Monday.
Likely voters are evenly split between the two major candidates, leaving Libertarian Gary Johnson far behind.
- Clinton: 46 percent.
- Trump: 45 percent.
- Johnson: 2 percent.
“After hundreds of millions of dollars and untold man-hours, and woman-hours, of campaigning, it would be fitting if the entire country broke into a chorus of ’it’s beginning to look like 2000,’ in the two states that matter most – Florida and North Carolina,” Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, said in a statement.
“As the 2016 presidential race hits the finish line, both Florida and North Carolina are
virtual ties with Hillary Clinton at 46 percent in Florida and 47 percent in North Carolina and Donald Trump at 45 percent in each state,” he continued.
According to Real Clear Politics, Clinton has held a slight advantage over Trump in the Sunshine State since the end of October.
“There is no realistic scenario under which Trump can win the White House without those two states, while Clinton might get there without them,” Brown added, “but it’s not a road she wants to travel. While neither of these states is likely to be as close as the 548 votes in Florida that decided the 2000 election, both states could keep the country up counting ballots well into Wednesday morning and perhaps beyond.”
