TRUMP GAINING ON CLINTON IN NATIONAL POLLS …
With the presidential election just two weeks away, the latest Fox News poll has Hillary Clinton’s lead over Donald Trump at only 3 points. Two weeks ago Trump trailed by 7%, one week ago he trailed by 6% and now The Donald only trails by 3%. Poll trending at the end of an election means every thing. One has to wonder, with all the negative coverage from the MSM toward Donald Trump and their willingness to carry the water for Hillary Clinton, how is it that she is only ahead by 3?
With less than two weeks to go, the race for the White House has narrowed as Hillary Clinton now has a three-point advantage over Donald Trump.
That’s within the margin of error of the national Fox News Poll of likely voters.
Clinton is ahead of Trump by 44-41 percent. Another one-in-ten back a third-party candidate and four percent are undecided. Last week she was up by six points (45-39 percent) and before that by seven (45-38 percent).
The poll, released Wednesday, finds Clinton leads 49-44 percent in the head-to-head matchup. That 5-point advantage is at the edge of the error margin. She was up 7 a week ago (49-42 percent).
Trump is helped by increased backing among independents and greater strength of support: 68 percent of those backing Trump support him “strongly,” compared to 61 percent for Clinton.
What is up with the national polls that were recently released and how could there be that much of a difference in the polling? We will know for sure come the day after the election, which ones got it right and which ones blew it. The polls were anywhere between Clinton +1 and Clinton +14. With such polls that are obviously false, one cannot even take the RCP average as a correct barometer at Clinton +5.4%. Personally, I would throw out the AP, ABC tracking and USA Today, there is no way any candidate would win by such absurd amounts. Those polls are meant to discourage voter turnout for Trump and the MSM playing games. At this point with Trump gaining on Hillary, in part because of the devastating Obamacare premium truth, Hillary is ahead by 2-3.5%.
