It’s undeniable now – after weeks of running one of the worst presidential campaigns in modern history and obliterating himself in the polls, Trump has significantly cut the lead that Hillary has.
In fact, where Hillary was 10 points ahead of Trump, he’s cut it down by half to make her lead very manageable.
CNN’s latest Poll of Polls finds Hillary Clinton’s lead over Donald Trump has been cut in half, with her post-convention bump wilting in the late-summer heat.
Clinton holds an average of 42% support to Trump’s 37% across five nationwide telephone polls conducted between August 9 and 30. That 5-point lead represents a strong starting point for Clinton heading into the fall campaign season, but a CNN Poll of Polls earlier in the month averaging polls conducted in the week after Clinton’s convention in Philadelphia found the Democrat ahead by 10 points, 49% to 39%.
The shift brings the race back to where it was before the conventions in July. In a CNN Poll of Polls before either convention, Clinton topped Trump by an average of four points.
If Trump can keep this trend going, he’s a shoe-in for the White House.
But can he do it? It’s one thing to chop her enormous lead, but quite another to get ahead of the cankled commie.
And Trump has shown a contemptuous reflexive need for revenge…
What do you think? Will he stay on course and retake the lead from Hillary? Let us know in the comments section below!!
