LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAIT) -

GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump hasn't seen his poll numbers slide any in the last month, despite controversies and lackluster debate performances.

According to Talk Business and Politics, a recent poll shows Trump on his way to a win in the Natural State. 

The Republican standard-bearer slightly grew his lead over Democrat Hillary Clinton in the former First Lady of Arkansas' one-time home state, Talk Business and Politics reported.

In the U.S. Senate race, the contest has tightened between incumbent Republican Sen. John Boozman and Democratic challenger Conner Eldridge, but Boozman still maintains a comfortable 18-point lead, according to the latest Talk Business & Politics-Hendrix College Poll.

The poll results show leads for both Trump and Boozman.
