TN polls almost always underestimate Republican strength in the state. But we're talking about Trump here, so who knows.

Typical safe state poll underestimating the eventual margin of victory.

Safe R, but nice to get a poll confirming it.

Got a bet for Trump < 17.5% margin made this May. Feeling pretty good

Angry Tennessee men will ensure a Trump victory. Safe R. :)

Maybe. A generic Republican running against Clinton would have cracked 60% without breaking a sweat.

I know at least 4 Romney voters in Tennessee that are probably voting for Clinton.

Weak margin for Donald Trump.

I can see the tweet now: "Thanks, Tennessee! We are surging! The movement is real! Real Americans reject Crooked Hillary! Sad! #MAGA"

Weak R margin for a Republican nominee.

This probably understates the real margin, but TN isn't voting for Clinton.  We will get the Vanderbilt poll on Thursday.  I might go to the reveal show if I don't have anything going on that morning/early afternoon.

When was the last time polls in TN didn't underestimate Republicans?

That often happens in safe states.  But, my Trump +33 GCS poll was actually closer than what either MTSU or Vanderbilt could come up with!

Interestingly enough - Cooper's district actually trended Democrat. Clinton won it by 19 while Obama won it only by 12 in 2012 and 16 in 2008. Can we primary that guy yet or what?

As a resident of that district, I can tell you that there are a ton of suburban anti-Trump style rich Republicans in it that increased her margin.  The Davidson County mayoral race was actually quite close last year, the closest a conservative has come to winning it in a long time.  Jim Cooper also won by less than he did in 2012 or 2014.  Either way, he will be gerrymandered out of a district in 2022 (I'm not sure why they didn't do it last time)!
