According to a survey of 15 battleground states conducted by The Washington Post, Clinton is leading in New Hamsphire, Virginia, Michigan, New Mexico, Colorado, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Georgia, and is tied in Florida, Texas, Arizona, and Ohio. She is only trailing in Nevada and Iowa. Most of the surveys published on Monday and Tuesday showed Clinton leading Trump between 1 and 11 points. A Los Angeles Times survey showed Trump leading Clinton by 2 points. Since Monday, Clinton has been widening her campaign to states like Arizona that traditionally vote Republican.
