On November 8th, the United States of America will elect a new President.
For the first time since 2008, someone other than Barack Hussein Obama will be the Commander in Chief.
Not since the early part of the century have we witnessed an election this intense, this grueling, and this important.
As Donald Trump is likely to secure the Republican nomination and Hillary to get the Democrat endorsement the stakes couldn’t be greater.
At the time of the this writing, Hillary sits ahead of Trump in the polls.
What’s interesting is though she once fancied herself untouchable, Mrs. Clinton as well as her party supporters are growing concerned. Even though she’s ahead her lead is slipping, and it’s slipping fast.
A very recent poll saw Mrs. Clinton’s lead over Donalf Trump cut in half in just a few days time.
On Monday the 18th it was revealed Donald Trump had undercut Hillary’s 6 to 7 point lead and is now only about 3 points behind her.
At the present time Clinton holds on by the thinnest of margins with the former SOS garnering 43% support to Trump’s 40 percent.
Reporting on their findings Monmouth University polling director said, “Clinton still leads, but Trump is closing the margin…The next two weeks will be crucial to determining which direction this trend goes.”
According to the poll Hillary’s leads amongst those eligible to vote is even slimmer with just two percentage points separating the two presumptive candidates. Right now Clinton has 45% and Trump is weighing in at 43%.
Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the polling process has been what Monmouth has discovered in regards to Independent’s feelings about the two candidates.
The Hill writes:
Trump’s support among independents has risen to 40 percent, while Clinton’s has plateaued at 31 percent.
But Clinton has maintained a significant 46 to 39 percent lead over Trump in the swing states, which Monmouth defines as 10 states that were close calls in the 2012 election.
Third-party support also dropped in the poll, from 15 percent last month to 9 percent this month.
And surprisingly Trump’s decision to select Governor Mike Pence has done little to cost or bolster support. More than 75% of those surveyed said his VP selection has little affect on their decision to vote this coming election.
11% said his selection of Pence was a positive move and 10% indicating they had negative impressions of the selection.
“Considering all the drama surrounding some of the other names circulated, a no impact pick may be the best result for Trump,” the postulated
Most important is the fact Trump is making positive gains as opposed to his prospective competitor who is slipping.
