Presidential Horse Race Tightens in Colorado, Iowa, and Virginia

It's amazing that Colorado's in reach. Gary Johnson's pulling in ten percent there, mostly among young people I suspect, and that's hurting Hillary Clinton.

I'm not surprised about Virginia though. Terry McAuliffe took 48 percent to Ken Cuccinelli's 45 percent in the 2013 governor's race, with the third party candidate taking about 6 percent. Keep an eye on Old Dominion this year. I think Donald Trump'got a good chance. (Mostly, though, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Pennsylvania. If the voters start breaking for Trump in the Keystone State, I think Hillary's fried.)

At Politico, "Swing-state polls: Trump leads in Iowa, narrows the gap in Colorado and Virginia."
