CNN Poll: Donald Trump Leads Hillary Clinton 45% to 43% … Libertarian Gary Johnson at 7%, Jill Stein 2%
WELL LOOK HERE … NEW CNN POLL HAS TRUMP LEADING LYING, CROOKED HILLARY.
According to the most recent CNN poll of likely voters, Donald Trump has taken the lead over Hillary Clinton 45% to 43%. In other important polling data, Libertarian Gary Johnson is at 7% among likely voters in this poll and the Green Party’s Jill Stein at just 2%. It appears Hillary Clinton’s lying and questionable ethical behavior as Secretary of State under Barack Obama, her emails and the incestuous relationship between the Clinton Foundation and her position as Sec. of State is coming home to roost. It would appear that Trump has come all the way back and gone ahead of Hillary Clinton. Independents give Trump an edge over Clinton by a 49% to 29% margin.
We have now hit post Labor Day politics and the time in which most Americans begin to pay attention to the presidential race. What does this mean? Everything that the liberal bias media has done and all the money that Hillary Clinton has spent has been for naught. It is an even race heading into the home stretch with Trump having the trending momentum. Hot Air makes a very important point about other polls in comparison, “look at the NBC Surveymonkey poll which also just dropped. They’ve still got Clinton with the same six point lead she enjoyed one week earlier, but NBC is still polling registered voters.” Look for this poll to drip significantly the next go around toward Trump.
Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton start the race to November 8 on essentially even ground, with Trump edging Clinton by a scant two points among likely voters, and the contest sparking sharp divisions along demographic lines in a new CNN/ORC Poll.
Trump tops Clinton 45% to 43% in the new survey, with Libertarian Gary Johnson standing at 7% among likely voters in this poll and the Green Party’s Jill Stein at just 2%.
The topsy-turvy campaign for the presidency has seen both Clinton and Trump holding a significant lead at some point in the last two months, though Clinton has topped Trump more often than not. Most recently, Clinton’s convention propelled her to an 8-point lead among registered voters in an early-August CNN/ORC Poll. Clinton’s lead has largely evaporated despite a challenging month for Trump, which saw an overhaul of his campaign staff, announcements of support for Clinton from several high-profile Republicans and criticism of his campaign strategy. But most voters say they still expect to see Clinton prevail in November, and 59% think she will be the one to get to 270 electoral votes vs. 34% who think Trump has the better shot at winning.
Among those likely to turn out in the fall, both candidates have secured about the same share of their own partisans (92% of Democrats back Clinton, 90% of Republicans are behind Trump) but independents give Trump an edge, 49% say they’d vote for him while just 29% of independent voters back Clinton. Another 16% back Johnson, 6% Stein.
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.

Donald Trump continues to be the top choice of Republican voters in the race for their party’s nomination, according to a new CNN/ORC poll.
The poll finds little appetite for replacing the delegate leader and front-runner with another candidate at the convention or through a third-party run, but most of those opposed to Trump’s candidacy continue to pine for another option.
With the field whittled to just three candidates, 47% of Republicans say they’d most like to see Trump win their party’s nomination, about the same as the 49% who said they would be most likely to support him in February.
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz follows at 31%, with Ohio Gov. John Kasich the preferred choice of 17% of GOP voters.
SORRY RUBIO AND KASICH, IF YOU CAN’T WIN YOUR OWN HOME STATE, GET OUT!!!
According to a recent CNN poll Donald Trump is beating Rubio in Florida and Kasich in Ohio. In Ohio, Trump is ahead with 41% to Kasich’s 35%, with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in third at 15% and Rubio in fourth with 7%. And in Florida, Trump holds and even bigger lead with 40% to Rubio’s 24%, with Cruz at 19% and Kasich at 5%.
Donald Trump is leading two of his Republican presidential rivals in their home states, topping Sen. Marco Rubio in Florida and Gov. John Kasich in Ohio, new CNN/ORC polls show.
Hillary Clinton, meanwhile, is far ahead of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in both states.
In Ohio, Trump holds 41% to Kasich’s 35%, with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in third at 15% and Rubio in fourth with 7%.
And in Florida, Trump holds 40% to Rubio’s 24%, with Cruz at 19% and Kasich at 5%.
The results come less than a week from the March 15 contests in Florida and Ohio, as well as Illinois, North Carolina and Missouri. The primaries in 99-delegate Florida and 66-delegate Ohio are particularly critical for Republicans, since both are winner-take-all.
In both states, large majorities say that if their home-state candidate doesn’t win, he should drop out: 71% say Kasich should exit if he loses Ohio, while 66% say Rubio should depart if he loses Florida.
HILLARY IN DEEP TROUBLE IN NEVADA …
According to a recent CNN poll, Hillary Clinton and self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders are in a virtual tie ahead of Saturday’s Nevada caucuses. Hillary Clinton’s Nevada firewall has crumbled. The poll shows that 48% of likely caucus attendees say they support Clinton, while 47% support Sanders. The state’s caucuses takes place on Saturday, February 20. Is it possible that Hillary could lose again to someone who was initially believed to be an also-ran? Just how weak a candidate is Hillary Clinton and what is going to happen to her campaign if, or should we say when, the FBI recommends charges for crimes related to her private email server?
Likely Democratic caucusgoers in Nevada are split almost evenly between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders ahead of Saturday’s caucuses, according to a new CNN/ORC Poll.
Though Clinton holds an edge over Sanders on handling a range of top issues, the results suggest the extremely close race hinges on divided opinions on the economy.
Overall, 48% of likely caucus attendees say they support Clinton, 47% Sanders. Both candidates carry their demographic strong points from prior states into Nevada, with Clinton holding an edge among women, while Sanders tops the former secretary of state among voters under age 55.
“Overall, Clinton holds broad advantages as more trusted on foreign policy, race relations, immigration and health care, but likely caucusgoers are split 48% for Clinton and 47% for Sanders on the economy,” CNN reported. “Among those likely caucusgoers who call the economy their top issue in choosing a candidate, more support Sanders: 52% back him vs. 43% for Clinton.”
