The last week has been a whirlwind in the 2016 election—but you wouldn’t know if it you just watched the mainstream media.
CNN and the other news outlets that act as Hillary’s campaign arm have been scrutinizing and picking apart every genius move by Trump while giving one-tenth the time to glossing over Clinton’s latest scandal and criminal activity, from her declining health to the FBI document dump.
Can you imagine if the media did their job and reported the news fairly? Well, you may not have to since it looks like the American people are paying attention to what’s going on.
The Reuters/Ipsos poll is now showing the major sea change that has happened at the end of the month. Via Yahoo News:
The poll showed 40 percent of likely voters supporting Trump and 39 percent backing Clinton for the week of Aug. 26 to Sept. 1. Clinton’s support has dropped steadily in the weekly tracking poll since Aug. 25, eliminating what had been a eight-point lead for her.
The Reuters/Ipsos poll is conducted online in English in all 50 states. The latest poll surveyed 1,804 likely voters over the course of the week; it had a credibility interval, a measure of accuracy, of three percent.
Polling aggregators, which calculate averages of major polls, have shown that Clinton’s lead has been shrinking for the past few weeks. Those averages put her advantage over Trump at between three and six percentage points. Some of the more recent individual polls, however, have the race even tighter.
What has happened? Hillary’s scandals are finally catching up to her, while Donald has made some brilliant moves and stayed on message. He is showing an eight point swing over Hillary, and that does not fully factor in his immigration speech or the FBI release that will cement the dive she took after the FBI abdicated their responsibility to recommend charges. Make no mistake, Hillary’s ceiling is plummeting while Trump is peaking at just the right time, weeks before they enter the debate ring and only two months out from the election.
