Good catch. I was wondering why NY was in there.  Any if NY is in there then this is a fairly bad poll for Clinton.

yes, one thing this cycle...polls tighten up when the white share of the vote increases from 2008 and 2012. When pollsters put the white vote at the same or lower levels from 2012 they usually show a comfortable Hillary lead. Just thought this was interesting...battleground sample is almost 80% white. Explains why Trump would lead by 1. Same thing happens in Q polls as well.

Hmm, perhaps. Then again, it includes states like Florida and Nevada, which are more minority compared to the general electorate, states like New Hampshire and Iowa, which are whiter than the general electorate, and states that are near the national average, such as North Carolina, Virginia, and Colorado.

I wouldn't expect a significant differnce overall.

Judging by the size of these states and their demographic compositions the battleground composite should be:

Where do your numbers come from? How did you calculate these percentages?

I've notived the overall numbers are close to Pennsylvania. Isn't that an average state?

Exit Poll 2012 & Total votes

CO: 2.57 Million votes x White 78% = 2.00
FL: 8.47 Million votes x White 67% = 5.67
IA: 1.58 Million votes x White 93% = 1.47
MI: 4.73 Million votes x White 77% = 3.64
NC: 4.50 Million votes x White 70% = 3.15
NH: 0.71 Million votes x White 93% = 0.66
NV: 1.01 Million votes x White 64% = 0.65
OH: 4.50 Million votes x White 79% = 3.55
PA: 5.75 Million votes x White 79% = 4.54
VA: 3.85 Million votes x White 70% = 2.70
WI: 4.73 Million votes x White 86% = 4.07

Total 42.40 Million votes  32.10 Million White voters

32.10 / 42.40 = 75.7%

imo turnouts in 2016 - White: Increase / Black: lower

Any state specific polls?

That would make no sense in this case.

They polled 11 states and 2000 people.

Even for FL (the biggest state) that would only mean 400 people polled.

For small states such as CO, it would mean only 100 people polled and MoE would be too high.

imo turnouts in 2016 - White: Increase / Black: lower




Population growth in Florida, Nevada, Colorado, NC and population decline in PA, OH, WI, MI would lead to a slightly lower white turnout

In retrospect this poll was spot on, very relevant, and consistent with a overall lead for Clinton nationwide (2.1%.)

A non-weighted result for these 11 states had Trump winning by 1% (47.6% vs 46.6%.)  A weighted result for these 11 states had Trump winning by 1.3% (48.0% vs 46.7%).

A non-weighted average of exit polls for these 11 states has Whites at 77% of the electorate.  A weighted average of exit polls for these 11 states has Whites at 74% of the electorate.
