TRUMP SUFFERING FROM 20-POINT 'NUCLEAR WAR GAP' IN SWING STATES, AS CLINTON LEADS HEAD-TO-HEAD

Polling commissioned by VoteVets, performed by Public Policy Polling, is showing a lead for Hillary Clinton in the presidential race in Colorado, Pennsylvania. Virginia, Florida, and North Carolina, with clear majorities saying she won the debates. Perhaps most stunningly, voters in those states overwhelmingly agree that Donald Trump would be more likely to get us into a nuclear war.

When voters were asked which of the two candidates would be more likely to get the United States into a nuclear war, the opinion could not be clearer. The 'best' Trump did was to be seen as more likely by 'only' a 18 point margin. The results:
