The latest on the presidential horse race.

Clinton Extends Lead Over Trump to Double Digits in Virginia

The latest Virginia poll by Roanoke College has placed Hillary Clinton 16 points ahead of Donald Trump.

Which presidential candidate would you vote for?

  • Hillary Clinton – 48%
  • Donald Trump – 32%
  • Gary Johnson – 8%
  • Jill Stein – 3%

Clinton has once again trounced Trump. While Trump started regaining in the polls this week, a disastrous appeal to African-American voters made him look like a racist fool and he is starting to suffer in the polls once again.

For the first time in a while, Clinton made an appearance in the media, showing up for an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, where she joked about her health with Jimmy Kimmel. The segment was hilarious, lighthearted, and exactly what Clinton needs at this point in the election. She knows that most voters see her as the only candidate and she continues to play up that fact.

On the other side of things, Trump called on African-American voters to vote for him, telling them that they had nothing to lose and that their cities were “war zones.” Adding to the hilarity, these speeches were typically delivered to white crowds.

So long as Clinton continues to play it safe, she should be able to easily defeat Trump in November. Trump seems to always make a fool of himself at every single rally he hosts and that trend doesn’t seem like it will change anytime soon.
