The latest on the presidential horse race.

Clinton up by 11 as She Continues to Hammer Trump in the Polls

The latest general election poll by The Atlantic/PRRI has placed Hillary Clinton 11 points ahead of Donald Trump.

Which presidential candidate would you vote for?

  • Hillary Clinton – 49%
  • Donald Trump – 38%

Trump is having a rough start to the week. Even though he performed well in the debate, the video clip of his offensive comments from 2005 continue to bury him. Major Republicans are withdrawing their support for him, Trump continues to defend his comments as “locker room talk,” and he refused to issue a heartfelt apology. All of these factors, combined with how close the election is, and it appears that Trump’s campaign is all but dead. Most of the major polls have Clinton up by double digits.

At this point, the election is in Clinton’s hands. There is enough ammunition for her to use against Trump and most of the American population is now well versed in Trump’s behavior. So long as Clinton remains low, the media will not pay any attention to her. This is the position that Clinton has wanted to be in since the beginning as she carried a lot of baggage and she hates talking about it.

Trump tried to pepper her on her ample baggage, and while he got some good jabs in, like the Bill Clinton rape allegations and the emails, he was unable to make effective progress in the polls.
