The first presidential debates will be coming up today by 9pm. Both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are very expectant.
A new Washington Post-ABC News poll shows that among probable voters 46 percent support Clinton, 44 percent support Trump, 5 percent support Libertarian Gary Johnson and 1 percent support Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein.
Among registered voters, the polls show that Clinton and Trump are tied at 41 percent, while Gary Johnson is at 7 percent and Jill Stein at 2 percent.
Between the two major-party nominees, Clinton leads Trump at 49 percent to 47 percent among probable voters. But both are tied among registered voters at 46 percent.
The race between Hillary and Trump is getting tighter and fiercer. The polls show that 54 percent of men are backing Trump and 55 percent of women support Clinton. The polls also show that along the racial lines Trump is ahead of Clinton with 53 percent to 37 percent among white voters. Among nonwhite voters, Hillary is in the lead with 69 percent while Trump is down at 19 percent.
The polls also show that both candidates are considered to be dishonest, Clinton more than Trump. Currently, 33 percent of voters say Clinton is honest and trustworthy, while 62 percent say she is not. For Trump, it is 42 percent and 53 percent, respectively, an improvement since earlier this month.
However for Trump, majorities do not see him as qualified to be president or possessing presidential temperament. On those qualities, 53 percent of registered voters say he is not qualified, 58 percent say he lacks the temperament to serve effectively, and 55 percent say he does not know enough about the world to serve effectively.
Even with all that is going on we know it will all come to an end at a point because the United States must and will eventually have a president from among the four who are on the race to the oval office.
