Clinton Ties Trump in New Hampshire

The latest New Hampshire poll by the Boston Herald/FPU revealed that both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are deadlocked in the state.

Head-to-Head Matchup

  • Donald Trump – 44%
  • Hillary Clinton – 44%

The fact that Trump continues to tie or come close to Clinton in states that she should be winning is a positive sign for his campaign. In a normal world, Trump shouldn’t have come this far and should have very little chance of winning the election, but this election has been unpredictable and it is nearly impossible to predict how he will perform.

Clinton needs to take control of this election in a hurry. She is supposed to win and the fact that she is trying Trump in the polls is incredibly worrying. She needs to single out a key progressive issue, like healthcare, gun control, or education, and run with it. That will allow her to tap into Bernie Sander’s supporters and it will lock down the left-wing. She will never appeal to racist voters, but she can make inroads in the south by dialing up her accent and acting religious. Clinton needs to develop a strategy and start executing it. This means she will to have to find the courage to take a stance on a major issue without being prompted by her opponents into taking it.
