Investors prefer Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump

Depending on which voter poll to accept, the presidential race in Virginia is a dead heat or Democrat Hillary Clinton enjoys a solid lead over Republican rival Donald Trump.

An aggregation by Real Clear Politics of five surveys of the state by national polling organizations - all conducted since July 5 - shows Clinton leading Trump in Colorado by eight percentage points.

The NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll finds Clinton with high single-digit leads in Colorado, Florida, North Carolina and Virginia.

That survey of Colorado registered voters shows Clinton supported by 43 percent and Trump by 35 percent in a two-way matchup, with 21 percent of those surveyed either supporting neither of the major-party candidates, another candidate, or undecided.

In Florida, Clinton also paces Trump, 44% to 37%.

With Latino Republicans feeling increasingly locked out of the GOP and the growing Hispanic influence in battleground states, along with others like Virginia, Georgia, Ohio, and Nevada, the math becomes increasingly hard for any Republican candidate to compete in a national election.

The poll results suggest that Clinton's use of personal email for government business while secretary of state and her handling of classified information have not damaged her support among likely voters.

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro also met with Clinton at her home, according to a person familiar with the Friday gathering, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the private meeting. In a two-way vote in Colorado, Clinton defeats Trump by 32 percent among Latinos.

The poll shows big gaps along the lines of race, gender, age and education that have surfaced consistently during the campaign.

Some Republicans complain that Trump could be ahead if he were to make a more specialized effort in the state. For example, among Democratic respondents, 87% said Ms. Clinton best represented their views on health care, while just 3% said Mr. Trump did, with remaining respondents saying they didn't know or neither candidate did. Trump led among voters 45 and older, Clinton among those younger. This year's states are mostly correlated with 2012, so there's no realignment.

Most of those polled also viewed Trump as untrustworthy.
