Poll: Hillary Clinton’s Lead in Oregon ‘Considerably Lower’ than Obama in 2012, 2008
The latest FOX 12-DHM Research Poll shows Hillary Clinton leading Donald Trump by seven points in Oregon, 41 percent to 34 percent.
“Clinton’s lead is about average for presidential elections in the state going back to 2000. However, it is considerably lower than President Barack Obama’s 12-point victory in 2012 and 16-point victory in 2008,” reports KPTV, Fox’s affiliate station near Portland.
The poll showed Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson with four percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein with two percent.
The results show that 72 percent of Democrats plan to vote for Clinton, while 65 percent of Republicans say they plan to vote for Trump.
Trump leads with voters who are not aligned with a political party, 37 percent to 32 percent. Eleven percent of voters questioned remain undecided.
The FOX 12-DHM Research Poll surveyed 504 voters from Oct. 25 through Oct. 29 and the results have a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percent.
