JACKSON, MISS– A new poll has shown that republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has earned a commanding lead over democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Those surveyed leaned mostly toward Donald Trump for president, as Mississippi was split 54 percent for Trump, 39 percent for Clinton, and seven percent undecided.
“Typically at this point, you’d expect the undecided to be split,” said Alan Lange, owner of YallPolitics.com. “So that would put Trump at roughly 56 percent.”
The survey was conducted by YallPolitics and Magellan Strategies BR. Lange added that these number are not unique, considering the numbers in 2012 between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.
“55 went with Romney,” said Lange. “And 44 Obama in 2012.”
There are two other candidates, libertarian Gary Johnson and Jill Stein with the Green Party.
“Johnson only pulled a couple of points,” said Lange. “Stein didn’t register.”
