I told most of you I am not into many of these polls because I don’t trust too liberal media, and I don’t trust manipulative polls to move the American people.
However, I keep getting tweets and Facebook posts of how the GOP front-runner Donald Trump can’t do this, how he won’t win this, and they are always citing polls.
This poll just came out today showing that Trump is now leading Hillary Clinton nationally by two points. One of the main reasons I do not put stock in polls like this is because neither one of the two is currently nominated and secondly you don’t look at general election polls until a couple of weeks before the election.
But since everybody is sending me the negative numbers let me put out some positive numbers.
From Rasmussen Reports:
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely U.S. Voters finds Trump with 41% support to Clinton’s 39%. Fifteen percent (15%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
This is the first time Trump has led the matchup since last October. Clinton held a 41% to 36% advantage in early March.
Trump now has the support of 73% of Republicans, while 77% of Democrats back Clinton. But Trump picks up 15% of Democrats, while just eight percent (8%) of GOP voters prefer Clinton, given this matchup. Republicans are twice as likely to prefer another candidate.
Among voters not affiliated with either major party, Trump leads 37% to 31%, but 23% like another candidate. Nine percent (9%) are undecided.
So what do you think of these early numbers? Share your opinions below in the comment section.
