There is great tension with just eight more weeks to go before the Election Day. You know who you want as President and I know who I’m rooting for, however, it’s the votes that count at the end.
But before the election let’s take a look at what the polls say.
CNN/ORC polls say Donald Trump has a narrow lead over Hillary Clinton in Ohio and the two are near even in Florida, the two critical states.
Here are the polls: Hillary Clinton is ahead of Donald Trump by 5 points in a Quinnipiac University national poll that was released on Wednesday.
Clinton beat Trump 48%-43% in a match up with likely voters nationally. A survey released in late August also reveals that Clinton had 51% while Trump had 41% a difference of 10%.
Trump led with white voters by 10 points (51%-41%), while Clinton was ahead with non-white voters 66%-19%.
Trump led with men 50%-41%, while Clinton led with female voters 54%-36%.
The telephone poll included 960 likely voters nationwide and had a margin of error of 3.2 points.
Clinton and Trump were however 2 points apart when other candidates were included in the Wednesday poll. This is within the margin of error. Clinton had 41%, Trump had 39%, Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson had 13%, and the Green Party’s Jill Stein came in at 4%.
The polls were however overlapping with some of the dark days of Clinton’s campaign as she faced a lot of criticism for regarding “half” of those who support Trump as on “deplorable” on Friday and she also had a health breakdown on Sunday as a result of undisclosed pneumonia.
We are all keeping our fingers crossed and hoping that the best candidate wins.
