Trump Pivots to Economy: Poll Shows Weakness in Granite State

Even as GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump was trying to change the topic to the economy, a new (WBUR) poll shows he trails Democrat Hillary Clinton by wide margin in New Hampshire (Gage Skidmore).

CONCORD, N.H. - GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump tried to change the topic by talking economic issues in Detroit Monday, but the latest New England polling shows that he still has a long way to go, even when it comes to winning support from Granite State Republicans.

Steve Koczela is president of the MassINC Polling Group. He said his organization's latest poll shows Trump is trailing Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton by 15 points in New Hampshire. He also noted that Trump is doing far worse with Republican voters than Clinton is doing with local Democrats.

"Donald Trump is only polling 62 percent of registered Republicans in New Hampshire at the moment; that's compared to 86 percent for Hillary Clinton among Democrats," he said. "I'd say the first thing he needs to focus on, is uniting members of his own party."

Clinton leads Trump by 15 points in the poll conducted for WBUR in Boston. The same poll had the candidates in a virtual tie in New Hampshire back in May with Clinton at 44 percent and Trump at 42 percent.  

Koczela said this election is unique in that one of the biggest issues to rise to the surface is whether either candidate is fit for office. He said Trump is trailing Clinton in that department as well.

"She certainly isn't enjoying sparkling numbers there," he added. "Her number is only 48 percent saying yes; but that's compared to 31 percent for Donald Trump, so that is large part is what the lead is about."

During his speech in Detroit, Trump called for ending the Inheritance Tax and for dropping the corporate tax rate from 35 to 15 percent. The poll of 609 likely New Hampshire voters was conducted from July 9th through the first day of August.
