The latest Rasumussen National Poll is out, for the first time since mid-May, they show Trump over Clinton. Here’s the latest, with the change over time.
So Trump leads Hillary 43% to 39%, a four point lead.
As we noted on Sunday, Trump has had a streak of losses even in Rasmussen polls, and squandered what would have been winning, poll-boosting moments for just about any other Republican.
Here’s more from Rasmussen:
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’s support within the party has finally climbed, up five points, which is surely a major factor. Speculation on other factors includes Brexit (because Trump and immigration), Benghazi (possible but less likely) and the terror attack in Turkey (which for once he didn’t say anything TOO stupid about.)
On Sunday we’ll have our poll roundup and see how Rasmussen stacks against the field, but there is no question that’s a good win for the Trump people and you’ll be hearing about it all day from all of them until your head explodes. My advice? Just refer them to yesterday’s poll numbers that show him cratering in key states. That’ll bring some reality back.
