The press has been pushing the narrative that Hillary Clinton winning the White House is inevitable.
One exhibit of their case was last month’s ABC/Washington Post poll, which showed Clinton routing Donald Trump 51% to 39%.
But their latest poll tells a different story.
In the wake of escaping charges for using an unsecured server to transmit classified information, and with the Obama-supported Black Lives Matter movement stepping up attacks on police, Clinton’s poll numbers have dipped.
The Washington Post reports:
“On the eve of the two national political conventions that will shape the images of the major-party presidential candidates, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are in a competitive contest nationally but with the presumptive Republican nominee facing deficits on key character attributes and issues, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.
The survey shows Clinton leading Trump by 47 percent to 43 percent among registered voters. That represents a shift in Trump’s direction since last month’s Post-ABC poll, which showed Clinton leading by 12 points. In the new poll, Clinton leads by 10 points among all adults — 50 percent to 40 percent — compared with a 14-point lead among this wider group last month.”
An 8-point movement in the polls is significant.
And the Post’s national poll dovetails with the battleground state polls.
Breitbart news analyzed the swing-state polls and found the Electoral College scoreboard showed a toss-up with Clinton holding a narrow 272-266 Electoral College vote lead.
That means a flip of just one state could hand the election to Trump.
“With the exception of NBC, battleground polls released so far in July show voters are moving toward Donald Trump. In four battleground states — Iowa, Ohio, Florida, Pennsylvania — Trump gained an average of five points and caught Clinton in at least one poll in each state.
If that five point shift is quietly happening in North Carolina and New Hampshire, other battleground states where we have no recent non-NBC polls, then Trump is also quietly ahead in both, bringing him to within 266-272 in the Electoral Vote. He would still need to win Michigan, Virginia, Maine, Ohio or some other state to stop Clinton from accumulating the 270 Electoral Votes needed for a Presidential Inauguration.”
The liberal media has painted Trump as a candidate who can’t win in the hopes of suppressing Republican voter turnout.
But, due to decades of scandal and incompetence, the reality is that Hillary Clinton is simply a deeply flawed candidate, and Democrat voters are catching on.
She’s unable to push her numbers past the mid 40’s.
If Trump can unite the Republican Party, he stands a good chance of achieving victory.
Do you believe Donald Trump will be able to pull off a win in the general election?
