The latest Fox News poll shows Donald Trump beating Hillary Clinton
A new Fox News poll is out which shows Donald Trump with a slight lead over Hillary Clinton nationally. Here is more:
Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump leads Hillary Clinton in a hypothetical general election matchup, according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday evening.
Trump leads Clinton 45 percent to 42 percent, within the poll’s 3-point margin of error.
The poll is within the margin of error, however in the last Fox News poll the former Secretary of State held a seven point lead so momentum might be on Donald Trump’s side right now.
In the same poll conducted in April, Clinton led by 7 points — 48 percent to 41 percent.
The sad part of this whole thing to me is that a majority of voters do not think either of these candidates is trustworthy:
Asked whether Trump is honest and trustworthy, 40 percent of registered voters surveyed said he is, while 57 percent said he is not. Asked the same of Clinton, 31 percent said she is and 66 percent said she is not.
I am with the majority on this because I do not trust either candidate either but for different reasons…
I am not a big fan of national polls but this could be an indicator of national sentiment toward the two candidates. Of course many times news organizations use polls to shape the news rather than report the news and just like every other news outlet Fox News has an agenda.
