Political life is good, if you’re Donald Trump, it seems.
The mainstream media may want to gloss over recent poll numbers, or outright keep them hush-hush, but the fact is, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton isn’t doing so well – and in the past week alone, Trump has pretty much smoked her in several key surveys.
“The Republican nominee is rising in the polls,” wrote Clash Daily.
And that may be an understatement. A recent LATimes/USC poll that came out September 9 put Clinton ahead of Trump by only one percentage point on the national scale, 45 percent to 44 percent – well within the margin of error. The latest CNN/ORC poll outright called the national lead for Trump, 49 percent to 48 percent. And several key battleground polls give Trump way more love than Clinton.
“According to the Quinnipiac University poll released September 8, Trump and Clinton are in a dead heat in Ohio, where Trump leads Clinton 46 percent to 45 percent, and in Florida, where the two candidates are tied at 47 percent,” Clash Daily reported.
Clinton may see some favor in North Carolina and Pennsylvania, leading by five percentage points in both states. But Trump’s gaining with key demographic groups.
For instance, “one-in-four African-Americans and one-in-three Latinos” support Trump, not Clinton, a recent Franklin Pierce University and Boston Herald poll revealed.
Much of the reason for Clinton’s demise and Trump’s simultaneous rise can be attributed to one word: Dishonesty. Clinton’s many scandals, including the ongoing saga of her home-based email server and the revelations that some messages during her secretary of State days were classified, sensitive and secret – and compromised – have taken their toll.
Trump, meanwhile, has been able to showcase himself as tough-to-beat on foreign policy.
As Clash Daily reported: “Trump and Clinton participated in the Commander-in-Chief forum where they both separately fielded tough questions from NBC moderator Matt Lauer in front of a largely military audience. Following the event, most pundits declared that Trump more effectively responded to the questions than Clinton did.”
Trump also won big points on domestic policy in recent days, telling an audience at the Cleveland Arts and Social Sciences Academy, a charter school overseen by an Arizona, for-profit outfit, that he not only favored school choice, but would be bringing forth a plan as president to give out $20 illion in block grants for low income children to attend the educational facility they want.
Clinton’s big educational platform?
She’s pushing free college for all, a favorite of the socialist-minded crowd.
