Clinton being +6 in Ohio suggests the race isn't so close as some would have us believe.

Good news in Ohio. Iowa will probably have the second biggest R trend.

I'm not sure how the race actually looks in Iowa since Clinton and Trump are still polling in the high 30s/low 40s and over 10% in this poll are undecided. This seems about right though for Iowa right now and Ohio is surprising.

Wow, looks like the race is shifting in Clinton's direction if those Ohio numbers are true. Fantastic news!

In the 3-poll average, Hillary now leads by 4 (which is well within the MoE).

Remember that there were polls in Oct. 2004, which had Kerry ahead in OH by 6 (and he lost).

But as long as CO and VA are above average for her, she should be OK.

Glad to see Tender is still bending logic and reason to create a horserace where there is none.

That Ohio number is encouraging, Clinton up 2 from the last YouGov poll there. Iowa continues to look like a coin-flip race, but that is basically expected by now.

Overall, I'm happy with those results.

I'm just cautioning you guys not to have blind trust in these state polls ...

+6 in Ohio makes sense if Clinton is +10 or +11 in PA

What the hell is going on in Iowa?

Compared to Obama's performance in 2012, Clinton is up three points in Ohio and down six in Iowa.

That Ohio result is ugly for the Trump campaign. I'm guessing she's getting big numbers from the cities and out of the Northeastern part of the state.

As for Iowa, it's pretty much in line with everything else we've been seeing. It's almost certainly now the Obama state most at risk.

Iowa needs to be stripped of its status as the first primary/caucus state.

If Clinton is ahead by double digits in PA, NH, VA, CO, and by mid-single digits in OH, FL, NC, then Iowa and Nevada are completely irrelevant.

I will now accept my accolades for being one of the people saying back in 2013/14 that Clinton had an Iowa problem.

This Ohio poll is really good for her, but it seems clear her national lead has faded back to 3-6.

So you think Ohio is as Democratic as the nation if not more Democratic? I don't think so. Sure, there was that one Pew poll, but the state polls indicate this is a 6-8 point lead nationally.

Screw Iowa, I'll take +6 in Ohio, thank you very much! The rustbelt strategy is clearly not working for Trump.

Iowa's now a Lean R state in an even national election, no longer the tossup/tilt D of yesteryear.

Where is that clear from? This is her biggest lead in Ohio since March.

Iowa seems to heading the way of Missouri. We should have known after they elected nutcase Joni Ernst in 2014.

My working assumption, looking at both the national and the state polls, is that it's about a 6 point lead nationally.

92% of Ohio voters in the YouGov poll are completely locked in or probably won't change. That gives Trump very little chance to reverse a 6 point deficit

87% of voters who said they were not voting for Trump (56% of the respondents overall) said there is no chance they vote for Trump
