The latest on the presidential horse race.

Stalemates Galore, Clinton and Trump Tie

The latest poll by the LA Times/USC has revealed that Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are currently in a stalemate at 43 points a piece.

Which presidential candidate would you vote for?

  • Hillary Clinton – 43%
  • Donald Trump – 43%

Trump’s numbers haven’t changed a lot over the last week. The Republican National Convention provided some humor and dramatic moments for the Republican Party. Melania Trump’s speech debacle proved to Americans that the Trump should hire a new speechwriter, Ted Cruz refused to endorse Trump, and other Republicans protested the media by doing the Hitler salute to Trump. Regardless of these moments, Trump’s numbers stayed the same and he didn’t experience much growth at all.

For Clinton, her time to shine will be at the upcoming Democratic National Convention. Will she be able to gain some momentum in the polls with a good showing at the convention or will her numbers stagnate much like Trumps did at the RNC. It is difficult to say at this point, but Clinton has all the power to rise in the polls given that she is viewed as the moderate and safe choice, when compared to Trump who is more of an unknown and a much riskier candidate.
