Clinton Has Commanding Lead In Nationwide Poll And Spanks Trump In Battleground States By As Much As 17 Points

Much like Donald Trump received a bump in the polls after the Republican National Convention, Hillary Clinton is getting a convention bounce following the Democratic National Convention.

In a new Fox News presidential poll, Hillary has a commanding 10-point lead over Trump in the 2016 presidential race.

Over a month ago, Clinton had a 44-38 percent edge over her GOP adversary in a Fox News poll between June 26-28.

Other than older white males, Hillary is dominating Trump. The former secretary of state is smashing Trump by 23 points with women (57-34 percent), with voters under 30 she leads by 18 (49-31 percent), with Hispanics by 48 (68-20 percent), and an unbelievable margin of 83 points with black voters (87-4 percent).

Trump isn’t even polling as well as he should with his own party with 12 percent of Republicans supporting Clinton. On the bright side, Trump is getting the important vote from independents who side with the famed businessman.

Voters see Hillary as more qualified than Trump with 65 percent saying Clinton is ready to be the next POTUS compared to 43 percent for the real estate mogul, including 45 percent who say he is “not at all” qualified. When it comes to knowledge Clinton destroys Trump. There is 72 percent that believe Clinton has the knowledge to serve effectively, while only 40 percent say the same for Trump.

Another factor is temperament, where 64 percent say Hillary has the right kind compared to 37 for Trump.

The Fox News poll is based on phone interviews with 1,022 randomly chosen registered voters nationwide that took place from July 31-August 2, 2016. The poll has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points.

The news gets worse for the Trump campaign in the race for the White House. In the key swing state of New Hampshire, Hillary has a dominant 15-point lead over Trump. In the WBUR poll that was released on Thursday, Clinton leads Trump 47 percent to 32 percent. The same poll that was done three months ago and it was virtually tied at the time. It gets worse. When Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein are omitted, Clinton’s outpaces Trump by a staggering 17 points. The poll was conducted July 29 through Aug. 1 and is comprised of 609 likely voters in New Hampshire.

Yet again, Trump is having issues with his own party, whereas Democrats are rallying behind Clinton.

While Clinton has improved her favorability since May from 35 percent to 45 percent, Trump’s has decreased from 33 to 29 percent.

It gets worse for Trump. In the swing state of Pennsylvania Trump is also losing by a double-digit margin. In a Franklin and Marshall College poll, Clinton leads Trump 49 percent to 38 percent among likely Pennsylvania voters. When you exclude the two Johnson and Sten her lead expands to 47 percent to 34 percent.

In this poll as well, voters seem extremely concerned with Trump’s political inexperience.

From Politics PA:

Hillary recorded a 47% favorable score (27% strongly, 20% somewhat) against a 49% unfavorable rating (42% strongly, 7% somewhat). Donald’s numbers were considerably worse. His favorable rating was just 33% (20% strongly, 13% somewhat) and his unfavorable score at 62% (57% strongly, 5% somewhat).

The poll surveyed 661 registered Pennsylvania voters, including 389 likely voters, from July 29th to August 1st.

It gets worse for Trump. In the battleground state of Michigan, Clinton was ahead of Trump once again. According to a Detroit news/WDIV-TV poll of likely Michigan voters, Clinton has a significant nine-point lead, 41 percent to 32 percent.

The saving grace for Trump is that Clinton’s lead is diminished to six points if you take out the third-party candidates.

There are still 95 days until the election, so anything can happen. But it appears that the Democratic National Convention definitely provided Clinton a bump in the polls. Trump may have also hurt himself by firing back at the Khan family for their comments at the DNC.
