Daily Commentary – Monday, September 19, 2016 – So Now That Both Trump and Hillary Have Released More Medical Information
- Do you think it will make any difference in the election? I’m shocked that Clinton and Trump have such low blood pressure!
ITS SLIP, SLIDING AWAY FROM HILLARY CLINTON AS THE POLLS AND ELECTORAL COLLEGE VOTE TIGHTEN …
An election analysis conducted in the Reuters/Ipsos States of the Nation project shows that the race has tightened considerably over the past few weeks. Hillary has fallen and she can’t get up, both literally and figuratively. Her once insurmountable lead over Donald Trump is all gone and now The Donald has all of the momentum at just the right time.
The RCP average polling in a 4 way race is down to a Hillary 1.1 lead.
Hillary has Fallen and She cant get Up
An election analysis conducted in the Reuters/Ipsos States of the Nation project shows that the race has tightened considerably over the past few weeks, with Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump projected to win Florida, an essential battleground state, if the election were held today.
The project, which is based on a weekly tracking poll of more than 15,000 Americans, shows that the 2016 presidential race could end in a photo finish on Nov. 8, with the major-party candidates running nearly even in the Electoral College, the body that ultimately selects the president.
The States of the Nation project, which delivers a weekly tally of support for the candidates in every state, shows that the race has tightened in several traditional battlegrounds. Pennsylvania has been moved from a likely win for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to a tossup; Ohio has been moved from a tossup to a likely win for Clinton.
And Florida is now considered a likely win for the Republican nominee, with 50 percent support for Trump to 46 percent support for Clinton. If the election were held today, the project estimates that Clinton has a 60 percent chance of winning by 18 electoral votes. Last week, the project estimated that Clinton had a 83 percent chance of winning the election.
In a separate national Reuters/Ipsos tracking poll, Clinton continues to lead Trump by 4 percentage points, and her recent bout with pneumonia doesn’t appear to have scared away her supporters.
Trump Points Out Hillary Clinton’s Hypocrisy on Guns: “Let’s See what Happens to her’ if Hillary’s Bodyguards Should Drop their Weapons
DONALD TRUMP POINTS OUT HILLARY’S HYPOCRISY ON GUNS …
Sorry bias and in the tank for the Democrat party MSM, Donald Trump was not making any threats last night when he posed the hypothetical question of what would happen if Hillary Clinton’s body guards dropped their weapons. Trump was pointing out the hypocrisy of Hillary Clinton in that she wanted to take away guns from “We the People” to protect our-self, yet she could have individuals with guns protecting her. But of course the Democrat media complex had to attach Trump as they have to do something to save Hillary Clinton’s presidential run as she drops like a rock in the polls.
Donald Trump accused Hillary Clinton of pushing an anti-gun agenda during a campaign rally in Miami on Friday night, and suggested his Democratic presidential rival was a hypocrite for being under Secret Service protection.
“She goes around with armed bodyguards like you have never seen before,” Trump said, “I think that her bodyguards should drop all weapons. They should disarm.”
Trump wondered how Clinton would fare under those circumstances.
“Take their guns away. She doesn’t want guns. Let’s see what happens to her,” Trump said.
ITS A STATISTICAL TIE …
The most recent FOX poll shows it is a dead heat between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Interestingly enough, this is the first Fox News Poll this season that includes results among likely voters. Previous polls were registered voters. However, make no mistake about it, the presidential race has swung dramatically in the last 6 weeks and Trump has all of the momentum. The RCP average polling is proof positive that Hillary’s lead is all but gone and Trump is starting to go ahead in some polls.
Full results can be read HERE.
The presidential race is tight. Hillary Clinton tops Donald Trump by just one point among likely voters in the four-way ballot. In the head-to-head matchup, Trump’s up by one point.
Clinton receives 41 percent to Trump’s 40 percent, according to a new Fox News Poll, with Libertarian Gary Johnson at 8 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein at 3 percent.
In a two-way matchup, likely voters give Trump the edge over Clinton: 46-45 percent.
The poll, released Thursday, was conducted Sunday through Wednesday evenings, at a time when Clinton faced new questions about her health after falling ill at a 9/11 memorial event.
It’s the first Fox News Poll this season that includes results among likely voters, so a direct comparison can’t be made to previous polls.
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.
