Okay, this is interesting. It looks like Ted Cruz was onto something with this "vote your conscience" business:
As Donald Trump and the Republican delegates prepare to close out their party convention in Cleveland, a new Suffolk University poll of Ohio voters shows the race a dead heat in the Buckeye State, with Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump tied at 44 percent and 11 percent undecided.Sadly for Donald but happily for the nation, actual Republican Gary Johnson will be on the ballot in November and it might just cost him a swing state or seven. And Trump can't afford to lose any swing states.
The battleground state of Ohio has earned a reputation as a bellwether for how the nation votes in presidential elections, with a long history of picking the ultimate winner.
In a four-way scenario, with Green Party nominee Jill Stein and Libertarian Gary Johnson added into the mix, Clinton edges Trump 43 percent to 39 percent in Ohio, with Johnson getting 5 percent, Stein 1 percent and 12 percent undecided.
It must also be noted that this poll was conducted right in the thick of #RNCinCLE (Mon-Wed), and it sure looks like Trump's not getting any bump so far in the convention's home state. Check out this four-way poll from last week:
