SHE MAY AS WELL START FILMING HER, "I'M GOING TO DISNEY WORLD" AD:

Polls: Clinton Pulling Ahead in Battleground States (Stephanie Akin, 8/04/16, Roll Call)

Hillary Clinton has widened her lead over Donald Trump in several states, including battlegrounds like New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Colorado, as more voters say the business mogul is not qualified to be president, according to polls from those states.
 
The polls also indicate that voter wariness of the Republican nominee could hamstring the party's push to maintain control of the Senate, with Republicans losing ground in several key races. [...]

The advantage for Clinton is so strong in Colorado, a traditional swing state, that the campaign temporarily stopped buying advertisements there in July, diverting the money to other regions, according to The Colorado Independent and other media sources. Clinton campaigned in Colorado on Wednesday.   

"Colorado is no longer a battleground state," prominent Colorado political analyst Floyd Ciruli wrote on a blog for his Ciruli and Associates consulting firm. Ciruli cited several trends, including a growing Hispanic population and a local Republican Party that has been hostile to Trump. [...]


The WBUR survey also found that, while voters were split about Clinton's fitness for the job, their concerns about Trump were far greater. Forty-eight percent of likely voters say Clinton is fit to be president, 46 percent say she's not, it found. Less than a third say Trump is qualified,  and more than 60 percent say he's not.  

In the Senate race -- one of the most competitive in the country  -- Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan has a 10-point lead over incumbent Republican Kelly Ayotte, the poll found. Like many vulnerable Republicans, Ayotte has tried to maintain a middle ground on the controversial presidential nominee.
