Trump and Clinton Locked in a Stalemate
With Election Day less than two weeks away, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are locked in a tie according to the latest general election poll by LA Times/USC Tracking.
Which presidential candidate would you vote for?
- Hillary Clinton – 45%
- Donald Trump – 45%
If you listen to the media, Clinton should be in the lead and well ahead of Trump. In multiple polls by Rasmussen Reports, ABC News, and IBD/TIPP, she is ahead by 1, 7, and 2 points. Excluding the ABC News poll, the race appears to be very close. At this point, it is difficult to gauge which way voters are leaning, but by using simple logic, one should be able to conclude that Clinton will win the election.
Clinton has a strong presence over Trump when it comes to minorities, women, educated Americans, and in the major population centers in the United States. All of these demographics tend to vote Democrat, and while Clinton is far from the perfect candidate, she is viewed as a safer choice and one that many Americans would rather take a chance on. Given these facts, she should be able to beat Trump on Election Day.
As for Trump, he continues to spew nonsense, claiming that the election is “rigged” against him, claiming that the polls are stacked against him, and appearing as a sore loser. This is Trump’s personality in a nutshell. He doesn’t like to lose, and when he does lose, he likes to say that he wasn’t given a fair chance.
