Donald Trump appears to be getting good news from the latest polls. According to RealClear Politics, Hillary Clinton’s lead in the latest head-to-head polls is down to an average of 1.8 percentage points.
In the latest matchup polls, Clinton is still leading in the majority of the polling data, but her lead is down from what it was after the conventions. It has been a challenging week for the Clinton campaign with Clinton dealing with health challenges at the September 11th event to her recent comments about some of Trump’s supporters being “deplorable”.
“You know, just to be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic — you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up,” Clinton said at a recent fundraiser (via New York Magazine).
While Clinton is still favored in November, Trump is seeing a spike in his presidential odds. In FiveThirtyEight’s polls-plus forecast, Trump’s chances are up to 38.2 percentage points. Predict Wise gives Trump a 30 percent chance of a victory against Clinton.
