Two New National Polls Show Hillary Clinton With Huge Leads Over Donald Trump

Two New National Polls Show Hillary Clinton With Huge Leads Over Donald Trump

Two national surveys out Thursday show Trump continuing to lose badly to Clinton. Sad!

Two new national polls released Thursday show Hillary Clinton dominating Donald Trump in head-to-head matchups.

According to a survey released by Pew Research Center, Clinton beats Trump by nine points – 51 percent to 42 percent. In a three-way contest that includes Clinton, Trump and Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson, the presumptive Democratic nominee’s margin over Trump remains the same.

The Pew poll indicates that voters aren’t all that thrilled about their choices this fall, but a record number of respondents (74 percent) said that “it really matters who wins the election.”

Although Trump is seen as the change candidate, the survey found that a plurality of Americans believe he would change the country for the worse.

While three-quarters of Democratic voters believe the party will unite behind Clinton, only 38 percent of Republicans believe the GOP will solidly unite behind Trump – a terrible sign for Trump as the Republican National Convention approaches.

A second poll out Thursday has Clinton defeating Trump by 11 points – 44 percent to 33 percent. The survey, released by Reuters/Ipsos, has Clinton leading by 9 points with Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein included in the results.

4. I wonder if it will hold given what has happened in Dallas.

Polls this early are always going back and forth, but the recent attack in Dallas may actually have an impact.

5. Unfortunately, only the swing state polls matter

National polls provide the same benefit as toilet paper.

Then again, Hillary is winning the swing states too. Check it RealClearPolitics.com

8. Let's see what the police murders in Dallas do the polls

My big fear is that social violence and domestic terrorism would panic-run people into Trump's creepy arms.

I hope I'm wrong, but I suspect that the wide gap will close within the week.

12. I hope that too. But I don't think history substantiates that hope.
