Clinton up by 3 in Latest CBS News/NY Times Poll
According to the latest CBS News/NY Times poll, Hillary Clinton is up by 3 points over her Republican opponent Donald Trump.
Which presidential candidate would you vote for?
- Hillary Clinton – 45%
- Donald Trump – 42%
The polls are mysterious things at the moment. The lead is constantly being traded back and forth, depending on who is conducting the poll. For a few weeks, Clinton led the polls and appeared to have the election in the bag. However, after the FBI’s recent decision to reopen the Clinton email probe, Clinton tanked in the polls, allowing Trump to regain momentum.
So where does this leave us on Tuesday? More than likely Clinton will still win. Despite her ongoing email scandal, most Americans see her as the safe pick when compared to Trump’s unpredictable style. And while Trump has managed to cement the racist vote, that demographic is not the majority and his failure to win over African-Americans, Latinos, and other minorities will hurt him on Election Day.
Can Trump win? Nothing is impossible, but it seems unlikely that he will be able to convince enough people to vote for him. When compared to Clinton, who certainly has her flaws, Trump doesn’t seem to stand a chance. Where Trump offers divisive policies, Clinton’s tend to offer more to the average American. Of course, there is always the fear that neither candidate will follow through on their promises, but sadly, candidates are elected on their campaign promises.
