Rasmussen National Poll: Trump Vaults to Lead over Hillary Clinton (6/28-29/16)

A new Rasmussen National Poll finds Donald Trump vaulting to the lead over Hillary Clinton 43%-39%. That’s a nine-point turnaround from one week ago, when Rasmussen found Hillary leading 44%-39%. This is the fifth straight poll in recent days have found Trump ahead (Rasmussen) or down between and two and six points, a big improvement over the previous week or two. Quinnipiac has Trump down only 42%-40%.


The tables have turned in this week’s White House Watch. After trailing Hillary Clinton by five points for the prior two weeks, Donald Trump has now taken a four-point lead.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey of Likely U.S. Voters finds Trump with 43% of the vote, while Clinton earns 39%. Twelve percent (12%) still like another candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided.

Last week at this time, it was Clinton 44%, Trump 39%. This is Trump’s highest level of support in Rasmussen Reports’ matchups with Clinton since last October. His support has been hovering around the 40% mark since April, but it remains to be seen whether he’s just having a good week or this actually represents a real move forward among voters.

Trump now earns 75% support among his fellow Republicans and picks up 14% of the Democratic vote. Seventy-six percent (76%) of Democrats like Clinton, as do 10% of GOP voters. Both candidates face a sizable number of potential defections because of unhappiness with them in their own parties. . . .
