Trump comfortably ahead of Clinton in 2 Tennessee polls

Two presidential polls of Tennessee voters released this week show Republican Donald Trump with a comfortable lead over Democrat Hillary Clinton.

In the poll released by Vanderbilt University on Thursday, Trump leads Clinton by 11 percentage points. About three in four of Trump’s supporters in the poll describe themselves as "angry," while two-thirds of Clinton’s supporters consider themselves content.

A poll released by Middle Tennessee University earlier in the week had Trump leading Clinton by 12 percentage points. The MTSU survey found that 56 percent of white voters support Trump, while 23 percent favor Clinton. Meanwhile, 65 percent of minorities surveyed in the poll support Clinton, while 9 percent support Trump.

The margin of error in both polls is about 4 percentage points in either direction.
