For months Hillary Clinton led Donald Trump in head to head polls.
But since he captured the GOP he nod, he has been steadily gaining on Clinton as her problems have continues to mount.
Yesterday a FOX News poll gave Trump a 3 point lead…and now THIS!
Rasmussen Reports has the new numbers…
Donald Trump has now grown his lead over Hillary Clinton in Rasmussen Reports’ first weekly White House Watch survey.
Trump earns 42% support to Clinton’s 37% when Likely U.S. Voters are asked whom they would vote for if the presidential election were held today. But Rasmussen Reports’ latest national telephone survey finds that 13% prefer some other candidate, while seven percent (7%) are undecided.
The really interesting part is that Trump is doing better with the GOP than Clinton is with Democrats, and he is winning independents…
Trump now gets 76% of the Republican vote, while Clinton has 72% Democratic support. Thirteen percent (13%) of Democrats prefer Trump, while nine percent (9%) of GOP voters favor Clinton. Among voters not affiliated with either major party, Trump leads 41% to 28%, but 31% of these voters either like another candidate or are undecided.
