Hillary coughs up the lead: Trump +2

CNNTrump tops Clinton 45% to 43% in the new survey, with Libertarian Gary Johnson standing at 7% among likely voters in this poll and the Green Party's Jill Stein at just 2%...

Trump has his largest edge of the campaign as the more honest and trustworthy of the two major candidates (50% say he is more honest and trustworthy vs. just 35% choosing Clinton) and as the stronger leader, 50% to 42%. Clinton continues to be seen as holding the better temperament to serve effectively as president (56% to 36%) and better able to handle the responsibilities of commander in chief (50% to 45%).

On honesty, Clinton's backers express greater skepticism about their candidate than do Trump's supporters. When asked which candidate is more honest and trustworthy, 94% of Trump's backers say he is, while just 70% of those behind Clinton choose her, with 11% saying Trump is more trustworthy and 17% saying neither of them are. And when voters were asked to name the one issue that would be most important to their vote for president, 5% named honesty or trustworthiness as their top choice, ranking it on par with foreign policy and jobs.
Both candidates remain largely unliked, with majorities saying they have an unfavorable view of each candidate in the new poll.

I hate NBC. Buncha crank hacks. But they have Clinton up 48-42. make what you will of it.

Had we nominated someone the DNC hack press were afraid of, the R candidate would be soaring 50% over her. Which, by the way, is what it will take to actually beat her, her corrupt media, and her corrupt-the-vote installments like Terry McAulif.

The hack press is afraid of Trump. They looked at the also-rans as push overs. Voters also thought that was true, and that's why Trump won.

The Mexico trip, her health, and the revelations are taking their toll.

A couple of other things, as well:

This needs to be taken with a grain of salt big enough to sink something: Trump is up or tied in Iowa, Maine, Michigan, New Hampshire, Ohio, and Wisconsin, according to Al-Reuters. If this is with the pro-Frumpty methodology, it's very good news.

Plus, he's ba-a-a-ack. Frumpty's magic Negro re-appears.

PS What's this "we"?

We nominated the ONLY person the press is afraid of. If it were Little Marco, he'd be one of Frumpty's Republicans, Jeb! would already be losing gracefully, Christie would already have his arm around her, and someone else would be complaining how mean she and the press were being to him and his weird family.

If an angel came down from heaven it would run a close race to Hillary.

Just on the allegation of a racist angel alone.

Patrick said...

Nice polls, dude. Don't get cocky. Especially when they show TX I'd all places being close.

Are those polls still being skewed?

Lem said...

Scott Adams believes if Trump were not to make any mistakes for the rest of the campaign he should win handily.

Just on the general bad mood of the Obama economy alone.

edutcher said...

Of course, they are, why do some silly people think I'm kidding when I say take it with a grain of salt?

When you have polls with 33% Ds and 23% Rs in the sample, what else do you call it? If TX is close, just remember, it's the pro-Hillary methodology.

edutcher said...

On the subject of that poll, Frumpty was asked one question and retreated to the front of the plane.

Wonder what the real numbers are.

Leland said...

Actually Patrick, I agreed with you, then I saw the Texas polling as neck and neck. In 2014, the RCP average under polled Abbott's actual victory over Wendy Davis by 3 points. In September, they were under by a larger margin. Texas isn't in play, and if Dems think so; I'm happy for them to waste their money like they did backing Wendy Davis.

Somebody slowed down the last coughing video and you can make out something coming out of Hillary's mouth into the glass.

Why is Hillary allowed to spread the flu?

Shouldn't she be sent home until she gets better?

Lem said...

If Hillary was a baseball player, with that cough, she be sent home.

edutcher said...

Typhoid Frumpty.

edutcher said...

PS If it's green, it's likely from the liver.

Ooops.

AllenS said...

Lem!! What was that the Crook spit up? YUCK!

ndspinelli said...

She has consumption..she's a "lunger." Or maybe an alien is going to explode from her ample abdomen. Err, I mean an undocumented extraterrestrial.

I'm objective. This election is looking more and more like Brexit. And folks are seeing all the hand wringing about Brexit was just elitist spin. Brexit has actually helped us. We are financing a new home in Apple Valley, MN and the rate today is 3.37%. We paid 4 times that for our first mortgage during the Carter Administration.

I am a big advocate for the idea that Mrs. Clinton has pleurisy, pneumocystis, black lung from when she and Joe worked in the coal mines, mesothelioma (lawyers are standing by!), white lung disease, emphysema, COPD, a fur ball, whatever, but in this case she may have simply been spitting out a lozenge. And that's another thing - what kind of meds is she taking, publicly? Morphine? Heroine was originally sold as cough medicine - is she strung out on smack? Ridin' the spike? Hittin' the big H?

In any case, you can ask the questions, but if given the answers, you can't dis-sputum!
