This year’s election is like nothing we have ever seen. Over the past week the second Presidential debate took place and it was a shootout to say the least. Donald Trump was attacked about his conversation with show host Billy Bush that took place 11 years ago regarding women, which was recorded and released by the Washington Post. Trump, whose back was certainly against the wall, went into full attack mode during the debate, going as far as claiming if he had the authority, he would see her in jail.
The debate was like nothing else in politics history and many Americans concern has become even greater because both candidates likability has continued to decline. After the debate, according to recent polls found on RealClearPolitics, Hilary Clinton now leads over Trump in the state of Ohio by 4 points.
Hilary Clinton, with her growing support due to recent events, is now back in Ohio trying to rally voters in the must win battleground state. On Monday, October 10th, Hilary took the stage in front of an estimated 18,500 people at the Ohio State University.
According to an article titled, Ohio Politics Now: Hillary Clinton stops in Columbus as state, national polls show her up, ““Ohio was moved to ‘leans Democrat’ from ‘leans Republican’ Monday by the much-watched Crystal Ball, run by the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics. And fivethirtyeight.com now gives Clinton about a 60 percent chance of winning the state — the reverse of just two weeks ago.”
In another article found on CBS titled, Why Ohio is leaving Donald Trump for Hilary Clinton, reports stated “Before this latest downward spiral bombshell over the weekend, Trump support among our membership was eroding pretty steadily,” Michael Gillis, the Ohio communications director for the AFL-CIO, told CBS News, disputing the notion that the Clinton campaign had given up on the state and attributing it to a scheduling lull.”
It is clear that this video of Donald Trump which has recently surfaced is setting him back in states that he once felt he had a strong grasp on including, and with the utmost importance, the state of Ohio.
It will be very interesting to see how Donald Trump and his campaign team respond to this shift in the polls, and whether or not he will be able to bounce back.
