The Democratic National Convention (DNC) continues to be a disaster in Philadelphia. From the media room flooding with water, to Black Lives Matter and other liberal protesters setting American flags on fire, America is now watching just how out-of-touch the Democrat Party is.
Now Donald Trump just received amazing news. After his speech at the Republican National Convention (RNC) in Cleveland, it appears Trump is having his highest polling numbers yet!
Trump has a commanding lead over Hillary Clinton by 7% (47% to 40%), and that’s not going to change anytime soon:
The USC Dornsife/L.A. Times Presidential Election “Daybreak” Poll asks more than 400 people each day about their voting intentions. The poll is part of the Understanding America Study (UAS) at the University of Southern California’s Dornsife Center for Economic and Social Research.
Each day’s poll respondents are a subset of the UAS election panel, roughly 3000 U.S. citizens who were randomly recruited from among all households in the United States. Respondents are asked three predictive questions: What is the percent chance that… (1) you will vote in the presidential election? (2) you will vote for Clinton, Trump, or someone else? and (3) Clinton, Trump or someone else will win?
Results are weighted to match demographic characteristics, such as race and gender, from the U.S. Census Current Population Survey and aligned to the 2012 presidential election outcome using self-reported vote in that election.
This is the only public poll that includes data from Monday and Tuesday of this week, which shows that Trump’s lead is still expanding, even as the DNC is broadcast on every major news network.
But this isn’t just a “post-convention bump.” Trump’s lead is real and historic. As Gallup explains:
As the Democratic National Convention gets underway in Philadelphia, Hillary Clinton’s image is at its lowest point in the 24 years of her national career, with 38% of Americans viewing her favorably and 57% unfavorably. Americans’ most positive view of Clinton, 67% favorable, came in December 1998. Before last year, her lowest favorable ratings since she became well-known had been 43% in January 1996 and 44% in March 2001.
Clinton was at 41% favorable in mid-June but drifted down to 37% by mid-July. Her favorable ratings have since held near that level, including through last week’s Republican National Convention. Republican nominee Donald Trump’s image for the past seven days was 36% favorable and 59% unfavorable, only slightly less positive than Clinton’s.
Hillary Clinton may be able to avoid jail time for her criminal use of a home email server to transmit classified intelligence, but the American people will not forgive putting our country’s national security at risk. Hillary’s numbers started to decline after the FBI hosted a press conference explaining just how improper her use of email was, and things are only getting worse by the day.
It appears the Trump train is unstoppable, heading into November.
