The latest on the presidential horse race.

Trump and Clinton Head into the Debate Tied

The latest general election poll by Bloomberg has revealed that Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are tied at 46 percent a piece.

Which presidential candidate would you vote for?

  • Hillary Clinton – 46%
  • Donald Trump – 46%

With the first presidential debate set to take place on Monday night, expect this deadlock to be quickly resolved. As it stands, both candidates are making blunders. For Clinton, its her questionable health and the lack of trust voters have in her, while for Trump, the majority of voters dislike his racist policies and his frequent need to lie.

Monday night’s presidential debate will force both of the candidates to address important issues head on. Clinton is far better in debates than Trump is, but never rule out Trump as he has been incredibly unpredictable throughout the entire election cycle.

If Trump can calm himself, act presidential even for a moment, and backup his policies with actual facts and realistic explanations, he could do well and possibly win over some of the undecided voter block. However, if he tries to stick to vague statements, bully tactics, and behaves like he normally does, he stands to do a lot of damage to his campaign at a time when Americans are hoping to hear him say something intelligent.
