Polling is no exact science and as we have seen over the last few election cycles, polling can sometimes be way off. Donald Trump defied some polls during the primary season and at other times he outperformed his poll numbers. Still, he and his team have to be a little concerned with the latest poll results out between him and Hillary Clinton.
Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential race, two new polls of registered voters show — but they differ on the size of her advantage.
A Washington Post/ABC News survey shows Clinton ahead by 12 points, 51% to 39%.
A Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, meanwhile, pegs Clinton’s lead at 5 points, 46% to 41%.
Trump is emerging from a difficult phase in his campaign, including the firing of campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, anemic fundraising and widespread blowback from his party over his labeling of an Indiana-born federal judge as “Mexican” and therefore biased in his Trump University legal proceedings.
The 12-point Clinton advantage would suggest those controversies have badly damaged Trump — but the 5-point lead would indicate he’d survived the last month largely unscathed.
Now, two polls in June are nothing to get concerned about. However, where there is some concern is the trend and right now, Trump is trending down. There is plenty of time to turn it around and Crooked Hillary is still under FBI investigation. That and she is just a lousy candidate. With her experience and an adoring media hell-bent on selling the FIRST WOMAN PRESIDENT narrative, she should be leading by 30 points.
This should however, be a reminder that people need to get involved. Get people out and registered. Volunteer on Trump’s campaign if you want to see him win. Poll deficits can be overcome it requires work on the ground.
Share this with others and let it be motivation to keep pushing.
