Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton got some not-so-good news today, as an NBC weekly tracking poll came out and she’s lost her three-point lead over Republican rival, Donald Trump.Anything that makes Hillary squirm is definitely something worth celebrating.
The Daily Caller is reporting, The presumed nominee still holds a slight lead over Trump, carrying 46 percent compared to Trump’s 45 percent of likely voters. But when Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein are included in the poll, Clinton falls completely behind Trump.
Trump earned 40 percent, and Clinton earned only 39 percent of the vote. Johnson earned 10 percent of the vote, and Stein earned 5 percent.
The poll was conducted either online or over the phone, and 9,353 likely voters responded to the survey. The poll was conducted with free online survey provider SurveyMonkey.The poll also asked respondents their views about their respective party unity. Eleven percent of Republicans think that their party is united today, and 50 percent thought the Republican Party would be united by November. The remaining 40 percent were more skeptical, saying they didn’t think the party would become united before the general election in November.
On the Democratic side of the spectrum, there is much more optimism about the party’s chances. Forty-five percent agree that the Democratic party is united, since Senator Bernie Sanders formally endorsed Hillary Clinton.
No doubt Donald Trump will be tickled pink by these results, but given Hillary’s track record of corruption and dishonesty, is it really all that surprising to see her lead shrinking?Plus, since Trump has the nomination, many folks in the Republican Party who were on the fence about supporting him are crossing over to his camp, particularly since the FBI has made it clear they will not be pursuing any indictment of Clinton over the email scandal.
One thing’s for sure. Whether you love Trump or not, we can all agree Hillary is total poison for this country and should never be let anywhere near the White House.[Note: This article was written by Michael Cantrell]
