The political establishment was writing off Donald Trump before he even started his campaign for President. But after defeating 16 well-known competitors, it looks like Trump could do the impossible yet again!
In an incredible new poll from Monmouth University, Hillary Clinton’s lead over Trump has just been cut in half. Now, the candidates are only 7 points away, just slightly outside the statistical margin. This is amazing:
Hillary Clinton’s wide lead over Donald Trump in the race for the White House has been cut in half, according to a new national Monmouth University poll released today.
The Democratic nominee held a wide 50 percent to 37 percent lead in the wake of her party’s convention in a Monmouth poll in early August, but now that lead appears to have tightened to 7 percentage points — 46 percent to 39 percent among likely voters.

And these numbers are only getting worse for Hillary, as more voters pay attention to the outrageous level of corruption at the Clinton Foundation.
As the Wall Street Journal notes, Trump is in this fight and can defeat Hillary Clinton:
This finding from the Monmouth University poll is striking:
In the current poll, 34% of voters have a favorable opinion of [Mrs.] Clinton. . . . Even fewer (26%) have a favorable opinion of Trump. . . . When these results are combined, though, only 2% have a favorable opinion of both candidates, while 35% do not have a favorable opinion of either nominee.
Majorities have an unfavorable opinion of both Mrs. Clinton (51%) and Trump (57%). It would not be surprising if Johnson gets a higher vote proportion than any previous Libertarian candidate (previous record: Ed Clark, 1.06% in 1980). It’s not even out of the question that Stein could beat the Green record (Ralph Nader, 2.74% in 2000). And Mrs. Clinton’s numbers are less bad than Trump’s. But there are enough sources of uncertainty here that it would be foolish to think Mrs. Clinton is sure to win, never mind by a landslide.
