Trump has a commanding lead in Georgia (51% to 42%) and Missouri (52% to 37%) and a smaller margin in Arizona, 47% to 43% while Clinton is up by 3 in Colorado, 44% to 41%.

As of Tuesday, 39% of women said they're backing Trump, compared with 34% who supported Trump in Saturday's tracking poll.And as result, the thrice-married, acid-tongued Trump is doing just as well among women as squeaky-clean Mitt Romney was doing at this point in the Oct. 28, 2012, IBD/TIPP tracking poll, when Romney also got 39% of the female vote. (Hurricane Sandy interrupted daily updates to the tracking poll after that date.)
