For the past few weeks we’ve constantly heard of Clinton dominating the polls and the fact that there is no way Trump will catch up.
It’s always important to note, no matter what side you’re on, you have to take national polls with a grain of salt. We are still three months out from the election.
Still, there’s a place for national election polls and they are not a complete waste. It’s helpful, signifying trends. It helps gives a sense for which way the political winds are blowing.
Both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton experienced an increase in the polls after their respective conventions. That was expected. But it is undeniable that Hillary Clinton has been performing better in the latest national polls. However, the Trump campaign has made a few changes in the last week, expanding staff members, which includes Kellyanne Conway as campaign manager and Stephen Bannon as his campaign’s chief executive.
Trump also changed his tone a bit. He got a small bit of introspective during a speech in Charlotte, North Carolina and expressed regret for not always choosing the right words at the right times, but promised us he will always tell the truth, even if it hurts ours feelings. That’s something that many people can appreciate. it was an interesting speech.
Donald Trump currently leads Hillary Clinton in the latest USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times “Daybreak” poll – his first lead in nearly three weeks. it’s a slight lead, 44.2 percent to 43.6 percent.
It’s considered a virtual tie.
This could be just the beginning of a positive trend for Donald Trump. If his campaign “shake ups” continue to work, he might very well win this race.
