The polls keep rolling out day by day, but the narrative is not reflecting the real numbers on the ground. Hillary’s media keeps spinning that she is firmly in control, but that is just not the case.
Polls of likely voters are clear indicators, over time, of what is happening in this election, and national polls are key for following the mood of America while quality swing state polls give clarity on how things will play out strategically in November. As long as the media can control the narrative that Trump is too far behind to ever catch up, it can convince enough people in these swing states to vote with the majority or else stay home.
So this poll out today by the Los Angeles times, which tracks likely voters on a daily basis, is showing something the big pollsters seem to be missing.
From the Los Angeles Times:
The USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times “Daybreak” poll tracks about 3,000 eligible voters until election day, asking on a regular basis about their support for Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump or other candidates as well as their likelihood of actually casting a ballot.
Donald has grabbed the lead back and has shown over the last week or two that the convention bounces on both sides were just amplifications of the truth of this race: it is tight. For every punch there is a counterpunch. Attack Donald on racism, the alternate media easily digs up the blatant hypocrisy of the charge by the Clinton campaign. Attack Donald on his immigration proposal? That will inevitably lead back to Hillary’s open border policies that are extremely unpopular.
One key indicator of the election is who is supporting the candidates by income breakdown. They have tracked this down too, broken down into three groups:
While Donald will never win among those who are on the government dole (the 47%), he is dominating among the middle class and has seen a strong resurgence among the upper-middle class and upper class. So many of the college-educated (and self-starting) high earners are starting to come around to the fact that Trump has clearer, better policies for them while Clinton’s promises are tainted by her corrupt self-interest. These are encouraging numbers for Trump supporters. He is in the thick of it, and with plenty of Wikileaks releases to come, there’s no way Hillary runs away with it like the media is crowing. At the very least this will stay close, but as the Clinton allegations pile up, Trump may extend his lead.
