Trump Opens Up 7-Point Lead (48-41) in LA Times/USC Poll
Donald Trump is steadily bridging the gap between himself and his Democratic rival Hilary Clinton in the United States White House race to November 8, 2016. This latest poll may raise blood pressures in certain campaign quarters . . .
Presidential Republican candidate, Donald Trump, has opened up a seven percentage point lead nationwide over his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, according to a poll released Sunday.
Trump holds a 48% to 41% advantage over Clinton according to the Los Angeles Times/USC Dornsife poll.
Other results from the survey indicate:
Voters under the age of 35 showed a dramatic change in opinion, as just a few weeks ago Clinton held a 10-point lead over Trump, but now the real estate mogul has taken an 8-point advantage among that group.
Trump’s support among those with a high school education or less has surged to 21 percent advantage, after it was a just a single-digit margin a few weeks ago.
Male backing of Trump has also increased significantly, as the gap has now widened to more than 20 points after being only half that a few weeks ago
Black support for Trump, which was a just three percent last week, has taken a leap to more than 20 percent, although Clinton still leads in that category with more than 70 percent.
The survey was conducted after Hilary Clinton was filmed stumbling into a Secret service vehicle after leaving a 9/11 memorial service abruptly and was later said to be suffering from pneumonia by her campaign organization.
