New CNN poll has Donald Trump leading Hillary Clinton by 5 points

July 25, 2016

 A new CNN poll is out and it looks as if Donald Trump has received a post-convention bounce–he leads Hillary Clinton by 5% points. Here is more:

Donald Trump comes out of his convention ahead of Hillary Clinton in the race for the White House, topping her 44% to 39% in a four-way matchup including Gary Johnson (9%) and Jill Stein (3%) and by three points in a two-way head-to-head, 48% to 45%. That latter finding represents a 6-point convention bounce for Trump, which are traditionally measured in two-way matchups.
There hasn’t been a significant post-convention bounce in CNN’s polling since 2000. That year Al Gore and George W. Bush both boosted their numbers by an identical 8 points post-convention before ultimately battling all the way to the Supreme Court.
  It is interesting to note that Donald Trump’s lead shrinks when Gary Johnson and Jill Stein are not included in the poll because I think it shows that contrary to popular belief these candidates are probably taking more votes away from the former Secretary of State. I do not believe Jill Stein is going to be on the ballot in all 57 states but Gary Johnson will be so all polls should at least include the three candidates if they are to be considered more accurate at this point.
  In all likelihood the polls should tighten back up after the Democratic Convention is over because Hillary Clinton should get a bounce of some type, however it is not starting out too well and it will be interesting to see what happens.

    Rather a fun day. Caught the Florida delegation giving Schultz a royal send off.

    Yawn … As we known from the the DNC wikileaks the polls are used by the propaganda news outlet to support their narrative. CNN is part of the Clinton machine.

    If the Bernie supporters are pissed at the the DNC then Hillary’s polling numbers should be less than 40%. These numbers assume Hillary is getting a large slice of the independent voters. Really???

      Good point! We now have proof the MSM was coordinating with the DNC. These polls are used to create the narrative not to report the news.

    Picky little point Steve, but your saying 57 states stood out to me because that’s what Bari stated when he was running in ’08, and he had two more states to visit!

    Listening to him even state this short clip goes to show heavy delusion and hypnosis of some kind going on doesn’t it! He doesn’t really even makes sense. So … why should this polling?!! What ‘mass hypnotic’ spell is going on today making us numb to the real issues and thinking we’re seeing the reality of the day!!

    First we have emails that prove the DNC conspired to out Bernie Sanders and his supporters. Then Hillary’s campaign manager from her last run is convicted on 9 counts of criminal activity from how she ran Hillary’s campaign, (no doubt she was just following orders from Shillary).
    Then Julian Assange tells us Hillary’s Director of voter expansion was the email leaker and was likely killed for that reason. The media is blocking all this except for a few outlets. Assange has to be angry that his lawyer was mysteriously hit by a train. Details are almost non-existant. Pushed in front of a train, no doubt. And then there’s Shawn Lucas, who served Debbie Wasserman Schultz papers to appear in court over voter fraud concerning outing Sanders.

    Shawn Lucas died a few days before appearing in court on behalf of Bernie supports accusing the DNC of voter fraud. If thats not enough, victor Thorn, a Clinton researcher who has 5 books out that all dish dirt about the Clintons, died mysteriously.
    Then John Ashe, former president of the United Nations General Assembly, was found with a crushed 4 Dead the day before he was to appear in court testifying against the Clinton Foundation.
    But the biggest mystery to me is how anyone knowing all of this could still vote for such an evil evil person. George Soros may be the only person I would consider even more evil, and he has funded Hillary Clinton’s campaign to the estimated tune of $115,000,000, while countless policemen have died as a result of his Black Lives Matter thugs he funds to riot.

    Come October, the lead will be more like 30 points with Trump in the lead.

      All you have said is true and in a normal world Hillary Clinton would not even be this close to winning the Presidency. However we no longer seem to live in a normal world and people don’t seem to care about how corrupt she is.

        The single thing that concerns me most is not that Hillary is clearly the most dishonest politician ever to run for president, or that she ruins the careers of those who do her dirty work, or the Clinton body count, or that Comey said she lied and was negligent with classified government information, or that she is a shill for evil George Soros, or that she is married to a rapist and philander, or that she has severe health issues and falls down a lot, and has seizures, and needs help going up a short flight of stairs, and that hacked emails show Abodin Huma says,”Hillary naps a lot and is often confused”, and one has to ask, ” how can someone this unhealthy even consider the task of President of the United States?”
        No, none of these things concern me half as much as the fact that so many Americans are willing to compromise our safety , security and livelihood by voting for this reckless, selfish, corrupt lying individual.
        The only presidential candidate ever who was and currently IS under not one, but 2 FBI criminal investigations!
