CBS Poll: Donald Trump Has Closed the Gap on Hillary Clinton, Race Tied in 3-Way Match Up

HILLARY CLINTON’S POLL LEAD IS COLLAPSING TOO …

With the first debate less than two weeks away, and in the wake of Hillary Clinton’s “deplorables” comment and her collapsing on Sunday, according to the most recent CBS poll, the race is a tie. This is a dead even race at this point.  In a two-way race Clinton has a two point lead; however, this is not a two person race, there are four candidates and they are all getting support. It is obvious that Trump has the momentum on the campaign trail and in the polls as Hillary Clinton sees her poll numbers and herself collapsing.

With the first debate less than two weeks away, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are in a tight race for the presidency nationally. Clinton has just a 2-point edge in a two-way match-up among likely voters. The race is tied when third party candidates are included. Among the broader electorate of registered voters, Clinton leads Trump by five points.

One disadvantage for Clinton is diminished voter enthusiasm. Democrats are less enthusiastic about voting now than they were in August.

More than four in 10 voters think each presidential candidate should release more of their medical records.  This poll was conducted before either candidate’s recent release of medical information.

With Election Day just under eight weeks away, the race for President nationwide is tight. In a two-way match-up, Clinton has a slim edge over Trump, 46 – 44 percent among likely voters who support or lean toward a candidate.

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.

Real Clear Politics Average of national polls Has Trump Over Clinton, 44.0% to 43.6%

ITS ALL ABOUT THE TRENDING

For the first time the Real Clear Politics average of national polls shows Donald Trump up 0.4 points over Hillary Clinton. The score is Trump 44.0, Clinton 43.6. This erases a 20 point lead that Hillary had back in July 2015. And more recently, an 11 point lead Hillary had over Trump in March 23, 2016. It is obvious that Trump is surging and trending up, while Hillary is falling. This has to bring panic to Team Hillary and the DNC as Trump is solidifying support behind him while the Democrats become more and more divided and violent as Bernie Sanders vows to fight on to the convention. So MSM, which party is having a civil war again?

The polls in play that show either Trump surging into the lead or making up a great deal of ground on the struggling Hillary Clinton are as follows.

As Don Surber opines, “Remember how Charles Krauthammer said if Trump won the nomination he could lose like Goldwater? National polls today confirm that once again, Krauthammer may have gotten Trump’s chances wrong again.”

CBS Poll: Ted Cruz Remains Ahead in Iowa with 40%, Trump Second at 31%

According to the latest CBS poll, Texas senator Ted Cruz remains in the lead in Iowa with 40 percent of likely Republican caucus-goers as opposed to Donald Trump coming in second with 31 percent. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) is a distant third with 12%. If the polling continues to play out like this, an Iowa win will gain momentum for Cruz and although New Hampshire is probably not in play, South Carolina is.

What’s that sound? The establishment GOP’s collective stomach churning as conservative Ted Cruz could be the real deal for the GOP primary.

Ted Cruz

Ted Cruz maintains a strong lead over Donald Trump in Iowa, according to the results of a poll released Sunday.

The Texas senator, in the CBS poll, grabbed the support of 40 percent of likely Republican caucus-goers in Iowa. Trump is at 31 percent, followed by Marco Rubio at 12 percent and Ben Carson at 6 percent. Every other GOP candidate receives 2 percent or less in the poll.

The CBS poll follows last week’s Iowa Poll — which showed Cruz with a 10-point lead over Trump, 31 percent to 21 percent — and a Monmouth University poll that had him in first place with 24 percent among all Republican candidates.

Polls of Iowa and the country as a whole have painted two different pictures: Trump remains atop national polls.

Donald Trump Leads in New in New York Times/CBS Poll … The Donald Up to 35% on Terror Concerns in America

THE MSM JUST DOESN’T GET IT AS TRUMP LEADS IN NYT/CBS POLL …

Like him, hate him or those that don’t understand him … Donald Trump speaks to many Americans and for many Americans, especially when it comes to terrorism and the safety of the United States. This as Obama has dithered for 7 years and made America less and less safe.

According to the most recent New York Times/CBS poll, Donald Trump is in the lead, mainly due to new terror concerns in the United States. As stated by Hot Air, “Americans are more fearful about the likelihood of another terrorist attack than at any other time since the weeks after Sept. 11, 2001.” According to the poll, 35% of Republican primary voters support Trump, up 13 points since October, and his highest level of support in CBS News polling. Why the drastic increase? Because Donald Trump is willing to say what many Americans are thinking and too many PC establishment and gutless Republicans are unwilling to. Like it or not, as the MSM is just befuddled by Trump’s continued rise, the American people are afraid and terrorism is at the forefront of the issues as Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Democrats, the MSM and establishment republicans all look weak and more concerned about being politically correct than they do about the safety of everyday Americans.

Donald Trump thumbs up

Americans are more fearful about the likelihood of another terrorist attack than at any other time since the weeks after Sept. 11, 2001, a gnawing sense of dread that has helped lift Donald J. Trump to a new high among Republican primary voters, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll.

In the aftermath of attacks by Islamic extremists in Paris and in San Bernardino, Calif., a plurality of the public views the threat of terrorism as the top issue facing the country. A month ago, only 4 percent of Americans said terrorism was the most important problem; now, 19 percent say it is, above any other issue.

Mr. Trump, who has called for monitoring mosques and even barring Muslims from entering the United States, has been the clear beneficiary of this moment of deep anxiety. More than four in 10 Republican primary voters say the most important quality in a candidate is strong leadership, which eclipses honesty, empathy, experience or electability. These voters heavily favor Mr. Trump.

The survey was largely conducted before Mr. Trump’s proposal, announced Monday, to temporarily block Muslims from entering the country.

Even Hillary Clinton now recognizes something stirring in the electorate that Mr. Trump had clearly tapped into. And this is where politicians get it wrong, their handlers get it wrong and the media gets it wrong. Trump did not focus poll to see what to say or what topic to talk about, the political outsider said what was on his mind and what was obviously on the mind of the American people.
