TRUMPMENTUM! National Polls Spell Bad News For Hillary!
By Phillip Stucky
Republican nominee Donald Trump took the lead in the latest national Bloomberg poll published Monday.
Trump led Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton 43 to 41 percent. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson earned 8 percent, and Green Party candidate Jill Stein earned 4 percent; a surprisingly low 1 percent of likely voters reported they were unsure of how they would vote in November.
In the two way math-up, the two major party candidates tied each other at 46 percent.
Clinton enjoyed a six-point lead in the August Bloomberg poll, down from a 12-point lead in June before the Republican National Convention.
Clinton lost some ground with female voters, falling form June’s 26 percent to only a 13-point advantage in Monday’s poll. Clinton still wins among young voters, as well as educated voters.
Bloomberg surveyed 1,002 likely voters, and lasted from last Wednesday through Saturday. The margin of error in the poll of likely voters was 3.1 percentage points in either direction.
