Yesterday we reported that Donald Trump was starting to surge and was leading Hillary in key battleground states according to Quinnipiac polling.
Today, Rasmussen’s latest poll is out and Trump is up by seven.
Just days before the Republican National Convention is expected to formally nominate him to run for president, Donald Trump has taken his largest lead yet over Hillary Clinton.
The latest Rasmussen Reports weekly White House Watch survey of Likely U.S. Voters finds Trump with 44% support to Clinton’s 37%. Thirteen percent (13%) favor some other candidate, and six percent (6%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
This is the third week in a row that Trump has held the lead, although last week he was ahead by a statistically insignificant 42% to 40%. This week’s findings represent Trump’s highest level of support in surveys since last October and show Clinton continuing to lose ground.
Someone should make a call and put George Will and Erick Erickson on suicide watch. On second thought, scratch that.
The “revolt” that was supposed to happen at the Republican convention is looking more and more like a tempest in a very small teapot. When Ted Cruz accepted Trump’s invitation to speak to the convention the number of delegates who were thinking about trying to block Trump fell by over 100.
When all is said and done, Trump will breeze to the nomination, #BlackLivesMatter will make fools of themselves outside the venue and Trump will have footage for campaign ads for the rest of the campaign.
