Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump dominates Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton in her husband’s home state of Arkansas in a new poll.

In the state that former President Bill Clinton presided over as governor for eight years, Trump holds an 11-point lead. Trump holds 47 percent of frequent voters, Clinton only drew 36 percent of support, and Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson earned 8 percent of the vote. Nine percent of frequent voters said they didn’t know enough to make a decision.

[dcquiz] Over half of voters, 53 percent, stated their support came from trying to stop another candidate, and 41 percent of respondents said they voted for a candidate because they actually supported him or her.

Interestingly, only 33.5 percent of frequent Arkansas voters approved of the job President Barack Obama has done, compared to the 55 percent found in a national poll published Monday.

It should be noted that in a poll taken in Trump’s home state of New York, Clinton held a 21 point lead as of May.

The poll drew from 751 frequent voters in Arkansas. Dr. Jay Barth, the professor in charge of the survey, added that he defined “frequent voter” as anyone who voted at least twice in the last four presidential elections. The poll surveyed those with cell phones in addition to landlines.
