Results of a new poll administered by Votamatic were published. The poll asked participants from Ohio for whom they will vote: Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.
Ohio is traditionally a purple state, where the candidates of both major parties have historically won similar levels of support among voters. This is why the election outcome in that state is considered critical in determining the overall result of the presidential election.

Putting the results in context
