Election outlook in North Dakota

Sunday night’s presidential debate was fueled by the crude Access Hollywood tape released Friday afternoon. That vulgar tape is hurting the GOP nominee.

In a new NBC News Wall Street Journal National Poll taken just before the debate, Clinton’s lead widened to 11 points, 46 to Trump’s 35 percent.

Republican leaders held a conference call Monday morning, with house speaker Paul Ryan saying he will no longer defend Trump or campaign with him.

Republican voters in North Dakota have a choice to make: vote for Trump, don’t vote at all or vote for a different candidate.

“I think it might affect voter turnout, and just people washing their hands and saying ‘I’m not voting.’ I think for the Republican Party in North Dakota; I don’t see it having a dramatic impact on it,” said Minot State Political Science Professor, Jynette Larshus.

The third and final debate will be held on Wednesday Oct. 19.
