Trump campaign possesses quiet confidence in all-important Arizona

PHOENIX — Both presidential campaigns are in the processes of making their final pitches to Arizona voters during the last week leading up to Election Day.

Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton spoke at a rally on the campus of Arizona State University in Tempe on Wednesday, while Republican candidate Donald Trump held a rally of his own at the Phoenix Convention Center on Oct. 29.

Now back in Arizona for the second time this week, Donald Trump Jr. said his father’s campaign is cautiously confident about its chances in the all-important swing state.

“From what I see on the ground it feels very good, but that doesn’t mean anything,” he said. “The only poll that matters to me is the poll that happens on election day.”

On Thursday, a poll from NBC News, the Wall Street Journal and Marist gave Trump a 5 percentage point lead among likely voters in Arizona. He holds a 46-41 advantage, which is larger than the poll’s margin of error of 3.7 percentage points for likely voters.

Statistical analysis website FiveThirtyEight.com also said Thursday that Trump is likely to score a narrow victory over Clinton in Arizona and take all 11 Electoral College votes in the state.
