A poll done by Emerson College has Donald Trump leading Hillary Clinton in Nebraska’s 2nd Congressional District:
The poll of 700 Likely Voters Statewide was taken September 25-27 — the day of and two days after the first Presidential debate. The MOE was 3.6%.
The Statewide numbers, as well as Nebraska’s other two Congressional Districts looked like this:
As you know, Nebraska splits its Electoral Votes, and Hillary Clinton is pushing hard to win the single vote in Nebraska’s 2nd District.
A few other notes from the poll:
- Among primary voters in Nebraska, Clinton is getting 57% of Bernie Sander primary voters while Trump is taking 15%.
- Trump is winning 88% of those who voted for Senator Ted Cruz but only 28% of John Kasich primary voters; 22% of Kasich voters favor Clinton.
- Trump is also winning Nebraska Independents, 43% to 24%, and 17% of Democrats, compared with Clinton, who has 9% of the Republican vote.
- Both genders are breaking for Trump by large margins. He leads Clinton 59% to 27% with men and 53% to 32% with women. Trump also leads with all age groups.
Emerson is doing polls throughout the country.
