GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump stopped in northeast Ohio Wednesday night where he talk about manufacturing jobs, the Second Amendment, and, of course, immigration.

What happened: “Possibly buoyed by a pair of new polls showing Trump leading by 5 points in Ohio, the several thousand Wednesday night in Canton’s Memorial Civic Center gave the GOP nominee perhaps his most enthusiastic reception yet in the nation’s top bellwether state,” Dispatch Public Affairs Editor Darrel Rowland writes.

About those polls: “New polls released Wednesday by Bloomberg and CNN show Trump leading Hillary Clinton by 5 points in Ohio, virtually identical to last week’s Quinnipiac Poll, which had Trump up by 4 points in a four-way race,” Rowland writes.

“A CBS/YouGov poll over the weekend put Clinton up by 7 points in a two-way matchup.”

What Trump said: “There’s a movement. States are in play that no Republican has ever come close to winning … I think we are going to have an incredible Nov. 8.”
