BREAKING: Donald Trump Just Received HORRIBLE NEWS – Whoa!

Trump polling

With the Republican National Convention just a few weeks away, presumptive nominee Donald Trump has been attempting to make a shift towards the General Election, first by firing his embattled campaign manager, but new polling suggests he is struggling to make up ground against Hillary Clinton.

In a slew of new polls released over the last several weeks, Clinton maintains a comfortable lead over her Republican opponent, with some showing her leading by as much as 10 points, a troubling revelation with approximately 100 days until early voting begins in some states.

From Politico:

Two new, major national polls released Sunday morning — surveys from ABC News/Washington Post and NBC News/Wall Street Journal — differ to some degree, but both are consistent with the broader trend: Clinton holds a reliable lead over Trump, an advantage that occasionally swells to double digits.

Trump now trails Clinton by 6.3 points in the latest RealClearPolitics polling average, and by 6.6 points in the HuffPost Pollster model. In the key states in the Electoral College, POLITICO’s Battleground States polling average shows Clinton ahead by 4.3 points. And perhaps even more important, Trump is lagging behind on a number of other key indicators, including candidate favorability.

At this point four years ago, Mitt Romney was essentially tied with President Barack Obama, trailing by just four-tenths of a percentage point. With the exception of 1988, no candidate in modern presidential history who trailed by this much in June has come back to win.

Trump’s deficit comes after he closed the gap with Clinton last month, when he pulled even after eliminating Ted Cruz, John Kasich and his other GOP rivals for the nomination. But his standing now is worse than that of the four previous Republican nominees in June of the election year.

Already, Trump’s slide in the polls is having a practical impact on his campaign, contributing to declining confidence in the first-time candidate’s ability to remain competitive with Clinton — and spawning a fledgling movement to unbind delegates who could possibly deny Trump the Republican nomination at next month’s national party convention.

Clinton’s now-consistent lead over the past month raises an important question for Republicans: Is the cash-strapped Trump campaign, which is allowing tens of millions of dollars of attack ads from Clinton and her allies to go unanswered, wise to preserve its resources for the post-conventions phase of the campaign? Or do the emerging Clinton advantage and sustained attacks represent a locking-in of voters against Trump?

Sunday’s public surveys provided further confirmation of that Clinton lead. Nationally, an ABC News/Washington Post poll showed Clinton leading Trump by 12 points, 51 percent to 39 percent, equaling her largest lead in any telephone survey since both candidates became their parties’ presumptive nominees. Clinton’s lead in the NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll out Sunday is smaller, 5 points, but Clinton has now led the past 11 polls conducted by live telephone interviewers.

    Walter White has no credibility when he refers to polls that were stacked with as much as 50-60% more Democrats than Republicans!
    Is there anyone in the Journalism Profession (questionable on professionalism) who still has any integrity?

  4. Bev says:

    You people will lie..I’m no t gettin excited over this one.However, you should be fired from journalism.I’m sick of the way you people tr y to manipulate things to the wa y you think you want them.We’ll see who the americn people show for.I can bet a dollar that it won’t be for Hillary.

  5. Gary says:

    The polls in the UK showed that nation would reject pulling out of the EU and look what happened. I don’t trust ABC-Washington Post or NBC they are an embarrassment to this nation. Our country will come back strong in November. Hillary may be on her way to jail with Obama not far behind.

    Just head Hildabeast & Big foot Running Mouth on TV, sounded like a couple of screeching Owls.

  7. Jerry says:

    Corrupt misleading from the Media and Clintonista group will not deter those who want our borders closed, economy fixed, jobs brought back & IsIs crushed.

  8. David says:

    The editor must have missed the line “Donald Trump has been attempting to make a SHIT towards the General Election”. lol

  9. Lee says:

    Trump will catch up when/if he and the Republican Party get together. Neither can win it on their own. Trumps lack of funding is a good think in that it should convince him that he needs the Republican party.

  10. Donald says:

    Trump can and will over come the deficits especially once the debates start, because when the debates start he is going to tear Hillary apart piece by stinking lying murdering piece and once that starts the downward spiral will begin added by the grease that he put on the hill and her so called campaign that financed by all the countries that hate us will come to and end and she will be in prison, which leaves Bernie in the race and he does not stand a chance aginst Trump!

    1. Elise says:

      What do you expect, with people in his own party,trying to take him down and the polls all left wing, trying to help them!

    2. Keith says:

      Dream on, not gonna happen.

      Trump supporters reside outside the realm of reality.
