As Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump prepare to square off in their first debate — an event guaranteed to be the best entertainment on television tonight — the Clinton campaign is probably close to panic mode after a new poll was just released.
The former secretary of state has enjoyed a decent-sized lead over Trump thus far in the race, however, the last few weeks have seen that lead shrink considerably.
Now, it looks like Hillary and The Donald are tied.
Politico is reporting, As the two candidates prepare to spar at tonight’s first presidential debate, a new poll has Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton tied 46 percent to 46 percent in a two-way race among likely voters.
The Bloomberg poll, however, has Trump ahead by 2 points in a four-way race, with Trump earning 43 percent to Clinton’s 41. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson has 8 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein comes in with 4 percent.
And earlier Bloomberg poll in August had Clinton beating Trump by 6 points in a two-race race.
Clinton still has a large, but shrinking, lead among likely women voters, besting Trump 52 percent to 39 percent. And among voters 35 years or younger, Clinton is beating Trump 50 percent to 40.
But Trump continues to lead Clinton with white voters 55 percent to 38 percent and with those without college degrees 50 percent to 42.
Polling averages show a slight Clinton lead: RealClearPolitics has her 2.1 points ahead, while HuffPollster has her leading Trump by 4 points. FiveThirtyEight has Clinton up by 1.1 points.
This hardly seems like healthy numbers for a campaign we’ve all been told would blow the doors off of Trump’s presidential aspirations.
It truly seems Democrats may have made a colossal mistake by choosing Clinton as their nominee, as it’s become clear most leftists don’t trust her and view her as an establishment politician.
Whether liberals want to admit it or not, they know deep down they cannot vote for her because she’s not trustworthy. She’s lied about Benghazi. She’s lied about her emails. She’s lied about her health.
All for the sake of her political career.
These sorts of shenanigans are unbecoming even for leftists, and Hillary’s shrinking numbers are proof.
