We were told by the media over and over again that billionaire businessman Donald Trump was not a viable candidate against Hillary Clinton. Nominating him, we were informed, would ensure an easy Hillary victory in November.
However, the latest poll numbers have come out, and they showed Trump behind Clinton by only two points nationally — huge news given that Trump has closed the lead very significantly in the last few weeks.
According to The Hill, the NBC/SurveyMonkey weekly tracking poll released Tuesday showed Trump behind Clinton by a 47 percent to 45 percent margin. That’s up two points from the week before.
And that’s not all. The RealClearPolitics polling average showed that he’s even closer with Clinton nationally, 44.0 percent to 42.5 percent.
Of course, the polls did not take into account the possibility of a third-party candidate from the #NeverTrump crowd and the GOP establishment, something that’s been dis
However, one thing is for sure — Donald Trump is a serious candidate and is poised to take the White House. That is, provided the GOP establishment doesn’t screw it up.
It’s almost bizarre to watch the establishment throw a tantrum over The Donald’s candidacy. They’re willing to destroy their own party — and by extension, the ideals they supposedly believe in — because they’ve been marginalized by the anti-establishment movement.
In spite of attacks from both the left and the right, Trump has managed to move within the margin of error against Hillary Clinton nationally. This is before the convention and the boost he’s bound to get from it.
If the Republican Party were to finally come together and support Donald Trump in the way that it should, the poll numbers would be even better. Heck, he probably would be ahead of Hillary Clinton already.
That’s why it’s time for everyone to get behind Donald Trump. We cannot afford four years of Hillary Clinton.
