DONALD TRUMP Retakes Lead over Hillary Clinton 42-41
Donald Trump jumped two points to retake the lead over Hillary Clinton in the latest Rasmussen polling.
The two major presidential candidates remain in a dead heat, but Donald Trump has regained the edge.
The latest Rasmussen Reports White House Watch survey shows Trump with 42% support among Likely U.S. Voters to Hillary Clinton’s 41% . Yesterday, it was the other way around, Clinton 42% , Trump 41% , and the day before Clinton had a 43% to 40% advantage. This is the first time Trump has been ahead since before the first presidential debate last week.
Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson earns eight percent (8% ) support in the latest survey, and Green Party nominee Jill Stein remains at two percent (2% ). Another two percent (2% ) like some other candidate, and three percent (3% ) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Among the 82% of voters who say they are certain how they will vote, Trump leads 48% to 47% . Among those who say they still could change their minds, it’s Trump 32% , Clinton 30% , Johnson 27% and Stein 11% .
This survey was largely completed prior to last night’s debate between Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine and Trump’s running mate Mike Pence.
