The latest on the presidential horse race.

Post Debate Poll Has Trump TIED with Clinton

The latest general election poll by LA Times/USC Tracking has revealed that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are tied.

Which presidential candidate would you vote for?

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

We have not seen a tie in many weeks. After Trump’s epic meltdown, the polls have heavily favored Hillary Clinton, even in ones that tend to lean right.

Trump put in a respectable performance at Wednesday night’s presidential debate. Given how rabid he was at the previous two debates, Trump was a lot more tame and on point.

In contrast, the Democrats suffered this week after WikiLeaks exposed them via multiple leaks. In these leaks, various staffers were caught engaging in questionable behavior, and in one case, a major staffer even incited other Democrats to antagonize Trump’s supporters at his rallies.

Still, this election appears to be all but wrapped up for Clinton. The post-debate polls declared her the winner, even if she won by less than she did in the previous two debates. Clinton should be able to defeat Trump on Nov. 8 because she is the better prepared candidate and she knows how to woo the majority of Americans.

Trump may be able to put up a fight against Clinton, but he failed to unify his own party and he still struggles with major demographics, like African-Americans, Hispanics, and women. Without all of these important demographics backing him, he will struggle to make up enough votes to topple Clinton.
