The latest on the presidential horse race.

Clinton Succumbs to Trump for the First Time in Weeks

For the first time in weeks, Hillary Clinton has fallen to Donald Trump in a general election poll conducted by the LA Times / USC.

Which presidential candidate would you vote for?

  • Donald Trump – 45%
  • Hillary Clinton – 43%

Trump continues to struggle in most polls, but he managed to top Clinton in this one. Not surprisingly, Trump milked the Louisiana disaster, posing for photos, while handing out Playdoh to survivors. The simple fact that Trump appeared in Louisiana, while Clinton and President Barack Obama have yet to make a formal appearance, earned Trump brownie points with voters who are moved by stories like this.

For the last few weeks, Clinton has kept silent and has largely avoided the spotlight whenever possible. Many of her supporters are growing frustrated and want to see her start to push Trump back before he has a chance to recover in the polls. Starting next month, Clinton will be bringing Bernie Sanders with her on the campaign trail, in an effort to win over working-class and young voters.

While most experts predict Clinton will win the election, do not rule out the possibility of Trump rising back up and challenging Clinton.
