Contrary to what the lamestream media would have us believe, the election is not over, 69 days from election day. While they continue to pound the narrative that Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton has assumed a lead her GOP rival Donald Trump can’t recover, they conveniently ignore data that suggests otherwise.Like the multiple polls that show the candidates statistically tied.
Or how about this one, that not only shows Donald Trump up — but having captured a six-point swing in just two weeks?SchaWING!
Donald Trump leads Hillary Clinton by roughly three points in the latest USC Dornsife/LA Times Presidential Election Daybreak poll.Trump earns 45. 1 percent support in the poll, while Clinton is at 42.3 percent.
According to the poll two weeks ago, Trump was behind Clinton by three points, 45.5 percent to 42.1 percent.
The USC Dornsife/LA Times Presidential Election Daybreak survey questions 3,000 voters each day about who they support ahead of the election on Nov. 8.The numbers are averaged based on responses from the previous week, so the results may be slightly behind in response to major campaign events.
Meanwhile, the media and left-wing pundits are telling us, even if the national polls are tight in some places, Trump has no chance in key battleground states.
Really?We shared with you recently the Florida polls showing Trump up in this state — the mother of all battleground states — and in a tight race in North Carolina. Not to mention a surprising level of support from Hispanics and blacks — who, according to the liberal narrative, couldn’t possibly vote for Donald Trump.
More recently, new polls show the two candidates in tight races in three other battleground states, as The Hill reports:
Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are tied in Ohio, while Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, leads her GOP rival in Michigan and Pennsylvania, according to new polls that find tight races in three crucial Rust Belt states.
Three Emerson College polls released Monday found that Clinton and Trump each have 43 percent support in Ohio, while she leads him by 5 points in Michigan, 45 percent to 40 percent, and by 3 points in Pennsylvania, 46 to 43 percent.
And here’s the kicker, perhaps:
Trump is doing better among independents in all three states, pollsters found. He has a 17-point margin over Clinton among those voters in Ohio but has a much more narrow lead in Michigan and Pennsylvania.
Trump’s lead among independents — a group that decides many an election– is a trend we keep seeing in poll after poll.
And, of course, an “x” factor many of us have pondered in this unprecedented election cycle, is whether polls may underrepresent Trump’s support. Given the job the left and the media have done to try to paint anyone who dare support him as bigots or morally inept, are people less willing to voice support for him even via a poll?
Of course, we still have 69 days, four debates (3 presidential, 1 vice presidential) and who knows how many October surprises to go until election day (Julian Assange seems to have a few up his sleeve he describes as “significant”).
Nope, it ain’t over until the generously-proportioned woman in the $12,000
tent pantsuit goes to prison sings.
