HILLARY CLINTON’S IMAGE IS TANKING …
Gallup is reporting that Hillary Clinton’s image is at its lowest level in the last two decades. According to the poll, 38% of Americans viewing her favorably and 57% unfavorably. Of course this comes at the same time where a new CNN poll states that 68% of voters deem her not trustworthy. That’s up from 65% earlier this month and 59% in May.
As the Democratic National Convention gets underway in Philadelphia, Hillary Clinton’s image is at its lowest point in the 24 years of her national career, with 38% of Americans viewing her favorably and 57% unfavorably. Americans’ most positive view of Clinton, 67% favorable, came in December 1998. Before last year, her lowest favorable ratings since she became well-known had been 43% in January 1996 and 44% in March 2001.
Clinton was at 41% favorable in mid-June but drifted down to 37% by mid-July. Her favorable ratings have since held near that level, including through last week’s Republican National Convention. Republican nominee Donald Trump’s image for the past seven days was 36% favorable and 59% unfavorable, only slightly less positive than Clinton’s.
CNN/ORC Poll: Donald Trump Gets RNC Bouce, Trump Leads Hillary 44% to 39% in a Four-Way Matchup including Gary Johnson (9%) & Jill Stein (3%)
Trump gets Republican National Convention Bounce …
One would have thought in a polarized America that the days of convention bounced were over. Well, not so fast. According to the most recent CNN/ORC poll, Donald Trump now leads Hillary Clinton 44% to 39% in a four way natch up. That’s a 6 point bounce from Cleveland. Trump has taken a commanding lead with independents and the CNN poll found that Hillary Clinton is struggling with perceptions she is dishonest and untrustworthy as 68% said she is not honest or trustworthy. The latest DNC email scandal will only increase that perception.
Donald Trump comes out of his convention ahead of Hillary Clinton in the race for the White House, topping her 44% to 39% in a four-way matchup including Gary Johnson (9%) and Jill Stein (3%) and by three points in a two-way head-to-head, 48% to 45%. That latter finding represents a 6-point convention bounce for Trump, which are traditionally measured in two-way matchups.
There hasn’t been a significant post-convention bounce in CNN’s polling since 2000. That year Al Gore and George W. Bush both boosted their numbers by an identical 8 points post-convention before ultimately battling all the way to the Supreme Court.
The new findings mark Trump’s best showing in a CNN/ORC Poll against Clinton since September 2015. Trump’s new edge rests largely on increased support among independents, 43% of whom said that Trump’s convention in Cleveland left them more likely to back him, while 41% were dissuaded. Pre-convention, independents split 34% Clinton to 31% Trump, with sizable numbers behind Johnson (22%) and Stein (10%). Now, 46% say they back Trump, 28% Clinton, 15% Johnson and 4% Stein.
A recent Rasmussen poll has The Donald ahead of Hillary by 7 percentage points. However, over all the RCP rolling average of polling has Clinton +3.1%. The gap is definitely tightening between the two candidates. My opinion is that the real polling will come more into line when Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have their first presidential debate.
Just days before the Republican National Convention is expected to formally nominate him to run for president, Donald Trump has taken his largest lead yet over Hillary Clinton.
The latest Rasmussen Reports weekly White House Watch survey of Likely U.S. Voters finds Trump with 44% support to Clinton’s 37%. Thirteen percent (13%) favor some other candidate, and six percent (6%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
This is the third week in a row that Trump has held the lead, although last week he was ahead by a statistically insignificant 42% to 40%. This week’s findings represent Trump’s highest level of support in surveys since last October and show Clinton continuing to lose ground.
Polls Following Email Scandal is Weighing on Hillary Clinton, Now Tied With Donald Trump & In Trouble in Battle Ground States
MAYBE IT WAS A GOOD THING HILLARY WAS NOT INDICTED, SHE IS FEELING THE WRATH OF THE VOTERS …
In the aftermath of the non-Hillary Clinton email indictment, many polls find the race tightening between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. The most recent New York Times/CBS News poll shows that it is a toe at 40% between Trump and Hillary. Mrs. Clinton’s 6 percentage point lead over Trump from last month’s CBS News poll has all but evaporated. Another major problem for Clinton, as she prepares to accept the Democratic Party’s nomination at the convention in Philadelphia this month, is she that 67% of voters say she is not honest and trustworthy. Can you say #Lying, Crooked Hillary.
Trump also has picked up some momentum in battleground state polls.
Hillary Clinton has emerged from the F.B.I. investigation into her email practices as secretary of state a wounded candidate with a large and growing majority of voters saying she cannot be trusted, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll.
As Mrs. Clinton prepares to accept the Democratic Party’s nomination at the convention in Philadelphia this month, she will confront an electorate in which 67 percent of voters say she is not honest and trustworthy. That number is up five percentage points from a CBS News poll conducted last month, before the F.B.I. released its findings.
Mrs. Clinton’s six-percentage-point lead over the presumptive Republican nominee, Donald J. Trump, in a CBS News poll last month has evaporated. The two candidates are now tied in a general election matchup, the new poll indicates, with each receiving the support of 40 percent of voters.
ABC News/WAPO Poll: Majority Disapprove of Obama DOJ/FBI Decision Not to Charge Hillary Clinton on Emails
AMERICA KNOWS HILLARY IS A LAIR AND DEMOCRATS DON’T CARE …
A recent ABC News/WAPO poll shows that an overwhelming majority of Americas disapprove of Obama’s Department of Justice, FBI decision not to charge Hillary Clinton with a crime regarding to her emails and the use of a private server while serving as Secretary of State. An amazing 58% disagreed with the decision, while only 38 approve. What might be even more damning to the presumptive Democrat presidential nominee is that a majority of Americans also believe that her inappropriate handling of emails and circumventing record acts make them worry as to how she would act as president. Really? You mean you think she would be “Lying” Hillary, if president? Even Democrats are a bit hesitant when it comes to the honesty challenged Hillary Clinton.
However, the MSM tries to find comfort in the polling numbers by claiming that 58% state the email crimes make no difference to how they would vote. What a shock. We are a divided country where probably 90% of the 50% of Dems could care less if Hillary Clinton killed someone, they would still vote for her. What isn’t considered in the 58% is the fact that there are many on the right that were never going to vote for her either, thus the email lies did not change anything for them either. No matter what the poll numbers say, America knows Hillary Clinton is a liar. Now its up to them to look themselves in the mirror and live with the choice.
A majority of Americans disapprove of the FBI’s recommendation not to charge Hillary Clinton with a crime over her handling of email while secretary of state, and a similar number in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll say the issue leaves them worried about how she would handle her responsibilities as president if elected.
Most also say the email controversy won’t affect their vote in the presidential election. But 28 percent say it leaves them less likely to support her, versus 10 percent who say it makes them more likely to do so.
Overall, 56 percent disapprove of FBI Director James Comey’s recommendation not to charge Clinton, while just 35 percent approve. Similarly, 57 percent say the incident makes them worried about how Clinton might act as president if she is elected, with most very worried about it. Just 39 percent feel the issue isn’t related to how she would perform as president.
