The latest on the presidential horse race.

Trump Falls to Clinton in Florida

The latest Florida poll by NBC/WSJ/Marist has revealed that Hillary Clinton continues to hold a 5 point lead over Donald Trump.

Which presidential candidate would you vote for?

  • Hillary Clinton – 44%
  • Donald Trump – 39%

Clinton continues to poll well against Trump, who has been falling for the last two weeks. Florida is a difficult state for a Democrat to win, but Clinton is the only candidate that closely resembles Republican values. If Clinton continues to court big business and offer basic progressive policy, she should be able to easily win the election in November.

As for Trump, he continues to make blunders in the media. His most recent one involved him calling on his voters to police voting stations in November in order to prevent voter fraud. However, voter fraud is a non-issue in the United States and Trump’s call to action may be illegal as it constitutes voter intimidation, something that is illegal and frowned upon in the United States.

Both candidates are incredibly unpopular, but Clinton appears to be the lesser of the two evils and the most leveled-headed candidate. Of course, this isn’t a hard thing to accomplish when you are matching up against the likes of Trump.
