It wasn’t long ago that the political establishment assumed Donald J. Trump would be crushed in a general election against Hillary Clinton.
What a difference a week makes!
After two polls showing Trump is tied nationally with Hillary, he just received incredible news: A Democrat polling firm shows them virtually tied.
This is a big deal, especially coming from PPP:
Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump by 2 percentage points among voters nationwide, according to a poll released Friday.
The One America News Network and Gravis Marketing poll shows the Democratic presidential front-runner with 48 percent support over 46 percent for the presumptive GOP nominee in a head-to-head general election matchup. Another 5 percent said they would vote for a different candidate.
That falls in line with other polls that show Clinton’s lead slimming as Trump begins mounting his general election campaign against her.
In a Public Policy Polling survey released Tuesday, Clinton had a lead of 4 points over Trump, 42 to 38 percent.
Friday’s poll was conducted among 1,574 registered voters on May 10 with a margin of error of 2.5 points.
This should make former members of “#NeverTrump” give him a second look. He’s clearly able to attract voters who don’t typically vote Republican.
And, considering the Clintons’ decades of money and sex scandals, Trump may be the only candidate with strong enough communication skills to properly explain just how dangerous Hillary is. No other candidate could work without a filter as well as Trump can… And now he only has one opponent to worry about.
At this rate, Trump will be leading in the polls as more voters start paying attention to the race.
