The latest on the presidential horse race.

Clinton Tops Trump in CO, VA, NC, and FL

The latest round of polls by NBC/WSJ/Marist have placed Hillary Clinton ahead of Donald Trump in Colorado, Virginia, North Carolina, and Florida.

Colorado

  • Hillary Clinton – 43%
  • Donald Trump – 35%

Virginia

  • Hillary Clinton – 44%
    Donald Trump – 35%

North Carolina:

  • Hillary Clinton – 44%
  • Donald Trump – 38%

Florida

  • Hillary Clinton – 44%
  • Donald Trump – 37%

While it is still early in the election cycle, Clinton’s campaign must be relieved to see a string of polls going in her favor. Many experts consider Clinton a shoe-in for the White House, but she has been struggling in the polls recently, often breaking even with Trump in polls that she should be winning.

Aware of this, Clinton has been pushing for an increasingly progressive platform, borrowing ideas from Bernie Sanders campaign when it comes to education and healthcare. Recent rumors have also linked her to Sen. Elizabeth Warren, suggesting that she may pick Warren as her vice president.

As for Trump, his recent pick of Mike Pence should help stabilize his campaign. However, much of that will rely on the fact that Trump is willing to take advice and stops flying off the handle with racist comments. He has yet to maintain a large lead over Clinton and he is certainly the underdog in this election. Adding to that, he is a far more controversial candidate and has undermined his chances at winning over minorities, women, and several other demographics through the primary cycle.

  • READ the ‘facts’!

    This ‘ain’t’ good as we go into a Republican National Committee Convention.

    Will GOP nominee, Donald Trump lose to a ‘known’ criminal in Hillary Clinton?

    • Carl Hudson

      The law, of course, determines criminality, not you. All you can do is hope. Good luck.

    • Eric Carriere

      The facts can be skewed on either side. Hillary Clinton may not be ideal, but she is far better than Donald Trump when it comes to stability.

    Trump received a record breaking primary vote for ANY Republican candidate .
    He beat the Bushes ,Koch Brothers ,Globalists , Neoconservatives ,and Fundamentalist religious zealots which made people hate the GOP since Bush2 , Gingrich ,Romney .
    But why has he struggled over the corrupt Clintons ? ( Bills third term I assure you )
    Playing around with the Establishment ,and preachers people mainstream wanted him to kick out !
    His son in law Kushner, knows nothing ,and should butt out and go count his shekels .
    Trump was pushed into picking bone head Pence ,who sounds like everyone Trump crushed in the primary ?
    He is a man from the 90 s and his ” conservative ” clichés no longer sell ,or are wanted .
    People want pragmatic solutions ,and long for national unity ; not the phony Left Right game .
    He even attacked Sanders ,and Trump planned to appeal to them ! Duh.
    If Trump looses this ,and we are stuck with Hillary Democrats and her secret Republican pals like Speaker Ryan we can blame Trump ” advisers ” for choosing a man his boss did not want and not of this time ,or ready for prime time ,Pence .
