USC/LA Times Tracking Poll Has Donald Trump with National Lead
Donald Trump has flipped the script on Hillary Clinton, taking a 3-point lead nationally, according to Tuesday’s USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times tracking poll.
The results, as follows:
Donald Trump: 45.8%
Hillary Clinton: 42.8%
This latest results reflect a reversal from 7 September when Mrs. Clinton held a small lead over Donald Trump.
Donald Trump has gained ground with millennials, according to the poll. Where Mrs. Clinton had maintained a lead with the 18-34 demographic, Donald Trump now owns a 4-point lead while maintaining his hold on the older demographics.
The USC Dornsife/LA Times “Daybreak” poll tracks about 3,000 eligible voters until Election Day, the latest poll was based on 2,665 respondents.
Mrs. Clinton’s “basket of deplorables” comment Friday initially cost her points in the polls. The outcry that followed led to an additional drop, and combined with her health concerns that became apparent when she abruptly left the 9/11 Remberance ceremony New York City, her numbers fell even more.
Mrs. Clinton’s campaign announced Sunday she was suffering from pneumonia. It should be noted that she has her physician traveling with her on the campaign trail.
There is speculation that Hillary Clinton will withdraw from the race, and the DNC is now struggling with a method to replace her it that happens.
Hillary Clinton may be suffering from pneumonia, but former US President Bill Clinton, said in an interview Tuesday that he is “almost certain” she’s healthier than her rival. Bill Clinton continues to be a “funny guy”.
