‘Not so good’ for Trump, Dems as Democrats lose big in Montana, Idaho polls: pollster

The polls in Montana and Idaho show a tie in the race for the Republican Party’s nomination for president.

And while some in the state have suggested the Democratic candidates are being pressured by Republicans to lose the race, some other surveys show the two sides are evenly matched.

But a new poll from Morning Consult shows a new surge in support for Trump among Republican voters.

The survey, released Tuesday, found that 42 percent of Republicans say they have an unfavorable view of the Republican nominee, compared to 31 percent who view him favorably.

In Montana, the survey found 43 percent viewed Trump favorably, while 43 percent did not.

And in Idaho, the poll found that 46 percent viewed the Trump campaign favorably, versus 39 percent who did not view it favorably.

Morning Consult surveyed 810 likely GOP voters in the Montana and 1360 likely Democrats.

The poll was conducted from Oct. 10-14 among 806 likely Republican voters and 753 likely Democratic voters.

For the Idaho survey, the margin of error was 3.5 percentage points.

Morning, an analytics firm, has conducted multiple polls on the presidential race in the past, including one in July that found Trump leading Hillary Clinton by a 3-point margin.

In that poll, the Trump lead was even wider, with 41 percent of likely GOP caucusgoers in Idaho supporting Trump, compared with 38 percent in Montana.

Morning has also conducted a poll in Montana in the spring, and the results were not different from the Montana survey.

The company has also been working to build out a poll on Trump’s support among women, and in Idaho the numbers show Trump with an advantage of 10 points.
