The latest on the presidential horse race.

Donald ‘the Polls Are Rigged’ Trump Pulls Ahead of Clinton

The latest general election poll by IBD/TIPP Tracking has placed Donald Trump 2 points ahead of Hillary Clinton.

Which presidential candidate would you vote for?

  • Donald Trump – 42%
  • Hillary Clinton – 40%
  • Gary Johnson – 7%
  • Jill Stein – 4%

In the recent weeks, Trump has continuously droned on about how the election is “rigged” and how the polls are illegitimate. Of course, one assume that Trump loves the polls when he is winning.

Some of the recent leaks by WikiLeaks have exposed the Democratic Party and its shady tactics. Certain high profile staffers were caught sending people to Trump’s rallies to incite violence and to rile up his supporters.

As for Clinton, she had a respectable debate at the final presidential debate, but wasn’t overly convincing to the American people. She will more than likely win the election, seeing as Trump so heavily sabotaged himself over the last 2 weeks. Her best strategy at this point is to solidify her support base and to continue pushing forward with all of the political ammunition that Trump has provided her with.

Trump has virtually no chance of beating Clinton and the majority of the GOP is now focusing on Senate races. Several GOP Senators are trying to distance themselves from Trump out of fear of hurting their chances at getting elected or re-elected.
