FBI Investigation and Syrian Refugee Issues Are Major Liabilities for Hillary as She Continues to Lose Ground in New Crossroads Battleground State Poll

WASHINGTON – Today, American Crossroads released the results of its monthly Vox Populi battleground state tracking poll showing that Hillary Clinton continues to lose ground to a generic Republican. In an online poll of registered voters in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia, Clinton trails a generic Republican nominee by 35% to 54%; down from November’s poll when she trailed 40% to 52%.

The poll also found that 55% of respondents were less likely to vote for Clinton because of her support for continuing to accept Syrian refugees following the Paris attacks. Similarly damaging is the ongoing FBI investigation into possible Espionage Act violations arising from her use of a private email server – 56% of those surveyed are less likely to vote for her as a result.

The December poll can be viewed here, and the full trends from our monthly polls can be accessed here.

“Even with all the drama and uncertainty of the Republican nominating contest, voters aren’t buying Hillary—in fact, their distrust of her continues to grow each month, especially as her failed record as Secretary of State comes into focus.” – American Crossroads Communications Director, Ian Prior
