In the final stretch of the 2016 presidential campaign, despite all the mudslinging and unsubstantiated accusations against GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, it appears that the race is not only tightening, but that Trump is pulling ahead.
According to The Daily Caller, polls have shown Trump tightening up the race recently and may even be beginning to pull ahead of Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton.
With a reopened FBI investigation looming over her head, a recent poll conducted by Breitbart/Gravis showed that Clinton’s corruption is just a part of her problem. When the discussion shifts away from Clinton and her cronies’ mudslinging and back to policy, she loses.
The Daily Caller reported the following points from the Breitbart/Gravis poll that was conducted late last week and weighted toward 2012 turnout levels — which favor the Democrats — among 1,260 registered voters:
47% said they agreed with Trump’s approach to trade policy, including terminating NAFTA and TPP agreements; only 28% agreed with Clinton’s approach.
Only 34% said they thought ObamaCare had succeeded compared to 54% who said it had failed. 63% said they disapproved of Clinton’s proposed refugee policies, with 57% saying they wanted to see current refugee admissions, especially Syrians, terminated or reduced.
A whopping 76% said they were concerned about illegal immigration and securing the southern border. 49% described themselves as “extremely concerned,” compared to just 17% who said they were “not concerned.”
Overall, 55% said they wanted to see a change from Obama policies, compared to just 40% who favored a continuation.
Take a look at these findings from the poll (as compiled by the Daily Caller) relating to Clinton, her corruption, and how respondents view her and the corrupt establishment:
52% said they felt that Clinton had been selling political influence through the Clinton Foundation; only 32% disagreed.
51% said they believe the FBI should have prosecuted Hillary Clinton for her handling of classified information on her private email server, compared to just 42% who disagreed.
58% agreed with the statement that “If Hillary Clinton wins the election, special interests and political elites win.” Only 35 percent disagreed.
Even more striking, 61% said they felt the 2016 election was “the best chance in our lives to take back our government and change course.” Just 33 percent disagreed.
It’s not looking good for Clinton with just about a week to go before the election. Despite having the mainstream media in the bag for her, it may well be a “yuge” victory for Trump.
Time will tell, and of course it remains to be seen what kind of dirty tricks the Democrats have up their sleeves. That said, it doesn’t appear to be the slam dunk that Clinton and her media cronies have tried to make it out to be.
