LA Times Poll: Donald Trump Edges Ahead of Hillary Clinton

26 July 2016

"The broad discontent is reflected in the head-to-head contest, which has Mr. Trump and Mrs. Clinton tied at 40 percent".

As a result, a new tracking poll from the Los Angeles Times finds Trump with a slight lead of three points. The same poll showed Trump leading Clinton in Pennsylvania.

The poll also offers some support for a prediction that Trump's backers have made - that he would appeal to disaffected voters who did not cast ballots in 2012.

Most polls conducted over the past week point to declining support for Clinton, who led Trump by double-digits in April. This signals trouble for Trump, chiefly when taking into account swing states where college-educated voters are a particularly dominant voting force, such as Virginia and Colorado.

About eight in 10 of all voters agree that Clinton's use of an email server was inappropriate. "As for the fossil fuel and the financial sectors, a Trump victory would mean less regulation, while a Clinton victory would mean tighter regulations". In addition to being a former Democrat, Trump has also changed his stance on some very important issues.

Smith, a former shadow cabinet member, said he would be a "radical and credible" leader who could bring back power to Labour. Owen Smith is expected to launch his Labour leadership bid today .

A Democratic senator who attended the meeting said that some lawmakers were "freaked out" while reading poll numbers that showed Trump closing in on Clinton's previously wide lead.

The Associated Press-GfK poll saw that a staggering 81 percent of those surveyed said they would be afraid if either Clinton or Trump became president in November.

In recent weeks, Clinton has started to acknowledge that many voters simply do not trust her. Democrats are only marginally happier with Hillary Clinton as their party's candidate.

Half of Clinton's own supporters consider her only slightly or not at all honest, and more than a third say she's only slightly or not at all likable. Elizabeth Warren, a favorite of progressives who has emerged as a blistering critic of presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump; Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro of Texas, a rising star in the Democratic Party; and Kaine. Other recent surveys indicate things have tightened up in some swing states, though the overall picture indicates that the race is still Clinton's to lose as she remains ahead in most battleground polling. The New York billionaire is most liked in Florida, 34 percent favorable to 61 percent unfavorable.

In addition, 36 percent think Clinton used bad judgment but did not do anything illegal.
