The latest Reuters poll shows Donald Trump with a 17 point swing in the last two weeks
The latest Reuters tracking poll is out and is shows a remarkable 17 point swing in Donald Trump’s favor in just the last two weeks, here is more:
On July 14, 2016, Trump was 15 points behind Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton 46.5 percent to 31.5 percent. However as of July 26, 2016, Trump closed that 15 point gap and is now up two points over Clinton, 40.2 percent to 38.5 percent.
This poll was conducted through the first two days of the Democratic National Convention so it will be interesting to see what happens in the next poll after the convention is over. Hillary Clinton should receive a post-convention bump however it does not look at this point as if the convention has helped her.
That could change after she gives the biggest speech of her life later tonight but I would have expected a little slowing in Donald Trump’s surge by now if a bump was coming and that has not happened.
The poll was also conducted before Donald Trump’s remarks about Russian hacking so it will be interesting to see how this affects the polls as well. But the one thing we have learned about Donald Trump is that he can almost say anything he wants to and it does not hurt him. How many times has he said something the mainstream media has said will be his undoing only to see the opposite happen? I think this shows us how fed up the people are with the establishment.
