More Deadlock in the General Election

The latest poll by Rasmussen Reports has revealed that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are deadlocked.

General Election

  • Hillary Clinton – 40%
  • Donald Trump – 39%

Trump is working hard to remain relevant. He continues to work hard to unify the GOP, but even he knows that will not be enough to guarantee him the general election. If Trump wants to win, he is going to need to find a way to win over independent voters and some of Bernie Sander’s disgruntled supporters.

In the recent weeks, Trump has toned down his rhetoric. His Muslim ban quickly devolved into a temporary and selective Muslim ban. All of these moves are calculated and are being pushed in order to help Trump attract moderate voters.

As for Clinton, she is still the go-to candidate for voters looking to avoid a Trump presidency. But, in reality, who else is there to vote for? Clinton needs to defeat Sanders as soon as possible so that she can start focusing on her general election strategy. Her email scandal still plagues her, but it is no longer a focal issue that everyone is talking about, and as much as the media tries to resurrect it, the average American voter doesn’t care or understand the severity of what she did.

Clinton should easily beat Trump if she sticks to her game, readjusts her forced progressive platform back into a centrist one, and continues to court minorities.
