Trump Takes the Lead, Hillary Stays Stagnant

by CHRIS KAHN | Reuters  |  published on July 27, 2016

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump posted a two-point lead over his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Tuesday, the first time he has been ahead since early May.

Trump’s gains came as he accepted his party’s nomination to the Nov. 8 ballot at the four-day Republican National Convention in Cleveland last week, and as Clinton’s nomination in Philadelphia this week was marred by party divisions and the resignation of a top party official.

The July 22-26 poll found that 39 percent of likely voters supported Trump, 37 percent supported Clinton and 24 percent would vote for neither. The poll had a credibility interval of 4 percentage points, meaning that the two candidates should be considered about even in support.

Clinton held a three-point lead on Friday, which was also within the credibility interval.

Clinton has solidly led Trump in the poll throughout most of the 2016 presidential race. The only times that Trump has matched her level of support were when the Republican Party appeared to be roughly aligned with his campaign.

    Hillary Clinton will NOT be elected President after lying to the American people and “stealing” furniture from the Whitehouse. Why would anyone vote FOR a liar and a thief?

  • Bob

    Yet the MSM will continue the narrative of Hillary being up by 20% or better. God, I pray these polls keep going Trumps way, if nothing else to get the Clintons back to Arkansas.

    • Matt

      I live in Arkansas now and we don’t want them back when Trump becomes President He can put her in front of the firing squad and shot for treason,

  • I Seigel

    Is there an announcement when Trump will release his tax returns? Hitlary released 8 years of hers. Where’s Donald’s?

    • Matt

      Who cares it doesn’t matter if he releases his tax returns or not.

      • I Seigel

        Do you care where the Clinton Foundation money REALLY comes from?

        • Matt

          I wasn’t talking about the crooked money laundering Clinton Foundation I was talking about Mr Trumps tax returns.
          I don’t think he should or needs to release his tax returns.

          • I Seigel

            I’m a little surprised – and maybe just a bit worried – that you’re not just the least bit curious to know the true state of Trump’s many businesses, and his relationships with Russian businessmen and the Russian government. You seem to want to delve so deeply into every word, every rumor spoken by or involving Hillary, but you’re willing to give a pass to a LOT of Trump’s past and present. I don’t call that being a good American citizen.

    I don’t trust polls anyway

  • Donnie Buchanan

    Another poll I read yesterday has Trump up by 7%

    • snowyriver

      Trump is ahead in 39 states… Hillary is ahead in only one major state – California.

    All I can say is the only way that Donald Trump is going to win is for us to hit our knees and pray like never before! This country will be done for if Hillary Clinton wins. They are now saying that Obama has cleared his schedule for October to help Hillary Clinton win. So we all know that if we have another 9/11 whose fault it will be this time and would not put it pass him to plan it him self! Lord forgive me for saying that but that is how much I don’t trust that man. And it dose not have nothing to do with his color. We where to much in a hurry to have the frist black president that we voted for the frist one who ran for office he could have been Republican and he still would have got voted in. We can’t do that again with the frist women president! Because if she wins People in this country of every race and origin should know that they will be more unsafe undear Hillary Rodham Clinton then ever before.We need to stop the fighting and come together has one! ..And people need to realize that Obama and Hillary are scared because if she loses then you know that Donald Trump is going to dig in and find out everything that they have lied to us about ,crap she told a lie last night about Donald Trump and a lot of people will take her word on it and not research it for themselves! Our own mom’ and dad’s told us not to believe everything you are told. Just because she is who she is is not a good anough reason to take every word has the truth. Research people research it! I did and she right out lied the number was right but none of it was explain correctly. So pray that Donald Trump wins because we all know he will put us and this country frist! And it is about time don’t you all agree? We have to come together has one Black and White , Hispanic and any other race needs to come together and stop the fighting. This country was nothing like this 8 years ago. This country is going the wrong way! God Bless you and God Bless this country for in Jesus Christ Holy name Amen !!!

    I cannot believe there are still so many ignorant people out there that support hillary…..I guess they are afraid they will lose their freebies. Hopefully more of them will smarten up and vote for Trump/Pence in November to save America.

  • andrew

    Oh ~! If only the Bitch of Benghazi would go “stagnant ” as in drop dead, so the demoncraps could find an honest candidate………..Oh… Wait again… I must be delusional… I don’t believe there is actually such a thing…

      There is no such animal as an honest liberal. So the dems have noone except Bernie half way principled. Course we all know Hillary is lousy with graft, corruption, lies, etc.. She and BO are the best example you can use to point out an arrogant narcissistic sociopath mental disorder these days!

  • Athanasios1

    This morning I listened to all the filthy Democrats and AFSCME union leaders speaking for and endorsing Hitlary. Racist Michelle Obama was at the top of the list telling the world via the leftist anti-American media that this country can’t survive a President like Trump. That racist’s husband has divided this nation to a point not experienced since pre-Civil War days, and the racist thinks Trump is a threat? The Armed Forces of our nation have never been weaker or made more wrong decisions since Bill Clinton helped Islamist Albanians destroy what was left of the Christian Balkans in former Yugoslavia. Of course the Democrats have a lot to lose, which is why they are scrambling to defend each other and their bad decisions in the Middle East, the Mexican Border, their support of the Syrian Terrorist invasion, Benghazi, and the Iran deal giving the nod to Islamist terrorist Iran to build nuclear weapons. If Hitlary is elected, then none of them will be brought to Justice after their terms.

  • Rodney Steward

    You would absolutely have to hate America to vote for Hellary Clinton, and when the whole system hates Trump, it must be good for our country and bad for most of the politicians pockets!

    • SD of AZ

      That is when you know you are backing the right candidate. Dems and rinos don’t like em? These days that is the right candidate!

      • Rodney Steward

        Absolutely my friend!! Trump 2016!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Roy Fredrichsen

      Of course, if Trump is elected all of the Democrats will lose their beautiful “Gravy Train” they have been enjoying.

  • Wingedgodd3ss

    Yes if the republicans that think writing in anyone especially Cruz could be realistic and support Trump Hillary probably would lose in a landslide. I hope they continue to release emails proving that Lynch and others have been involved the whole time in the protests of Trump.

  • Romeo Tan Barcelona

    Hillary Clinton releases classified information through her emails. She is a spy.

  • Dan

    Hillary loses in a land-slide

    • Rodney Steward

      God I hope you’re right!

    • FLChristyB

      Only if they can stop the massive fraud that put Obama in for a second term….I think that is why she does not seem to care about alienating the Sanders supporters, she figures the lock is already in. My hope is that the police are out in force in every district in our Nation to watch for voter fraud, and Republicans need to scour the votes to eliminate all those dead and made up voters!

      • Rodney Steward

        I totally agree, this is why they are fighting voter ID in a lot of states, FRAUD, you’re right about Obama’s second term! HE did not go in legally!!

    “A million Democrats deserted Howard’s party and joined my party because of Donald Trump in Ohio this year,” Hewitt said. … As part of an MSNBC panel, Hewitt said …”…/hugh-hewitt-million-ohio-democrat..

    • otoman

      They are liberals. Liberals turn truth into lies, and lies into truth. Hence, the term “liberal””!

      Polls are meaningless with this current day media. Can’t believe anything they say or do. Just vote Trump and in AZ vote Ward against McCain. That old rino is gonna retire this year! In WI vote the guy running against Rat Ryan. And in CA vote for anyone running against Pelosi.
