Bam! Clinton and Trump are tied in 13 swing states – that should shut a few people up

Hillary Clinton’s “insurmountable” lead over Donald Trump has disappeared.

When the votes are tallied from the 12 key swing states the election is a dead heat with both at 42 percent, according to a new CBS News Battleground Tracker Poll.

The tracker poll looked at Pennsylvania, Florida, Georgia, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Virginia, New Hampshire, Arizona, Nevada and Colorado.

There doesn’t seem to be much room for maneuvering either with 73 percent of respondents saying they felt very strongly about their choice in candidates, 19 percent stating they “probably” would not switch candidates.

A mere 7 percent said they felt “somewhat strong” about their choice which makes them the most likely to be swayed.

A major advantage for Trump is that the majority of those polled said they want to see “big changes” in the future while 43 percent only want to see “some changes.”

The economy was a major issue for those surveyed. 59 percent of Trump voters believed he would improve the economy and, surprisingly, 47 percent of Clinton felt the same about the Republican candidate.

What should be of most concern for Clinton is that 46 percent believe America “might be damaged beyond repair” if she won the election.
