Vanderbilt poll: Trump leads Clinton in Tennessee by 11 percent

Privacy booths await early voters at the North River Civic Center in Hixson. Late Tuesday afternoon, Elections Programer Nathan Foster makes sure computers and network are set up and ready for today. "North River is a new location," Foster said. "Previously, it had been somewhere inside Northgate Mall. Now we have a stable location at the center. We're working with the city of Chattanooga to use this facility for as far as we can see," he said. There are four Hamilton County early voting locations: Eastwood Church in Collegedale, Brainerd Recreation Complex, North River Civic Center and the Hamilton County Election Commission office at Amnicola Highway, according to Foster.

NASHVILLE - Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump leads Democrat Hillary Clinton here in GOP-friendly Tennessee by 11 percent with the help of women, independents, suburban and college-educated voters, according to a new Vanderbilt University poll.

Trump, the billionaire businessman and former reality star, bests former Secretary of State Clinton by 44 percent to 33 percent among voters surveyed in the Vanderbilt poll, the survey's directors, John Geer and Josh Clinton, said Thursday.

Seventy-three percent of Trump supporters here say they're angry versus just 13 percent for Clinton. But 66 percent of voters who said they are "basically content" favor Clinton.
