Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s march to the White House goes through the voting booth in November — and the future is looking better for the Trump campaign by the day.
Down across the board in early polling, Trump’s campaign has seemingly turned things around since the Republican National Convention.
And according to a CNN/ORC Poll released Monday, Trump is now beating Clinton. Big time.
In a four-way matchup between Trump, Clinton and Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein, Trump claims 44% of support, a 5% lead over Clinton (39%). In a head-to-head matchup, Trump still tops Clinton, 48% to 45%.
It’s largely thanks to a large 6-point post-RNC bounce, CNN reports. “Trump’s new edge rests largely on increased support among independents, 43% of whom said that Trump’s convention in Cleveland left them more likely to back him, while 41% were dissuaded. Pre-convention, independents split 34% Clinton to 31% Trump, with sizable numbers behind Johnson (22%) and Stein (10%). Now, 46% say they back Trump, 28% Clinton, 15% Johnson and 4% Stein.”
When that polling data is applied to The Horn News’ estimated electoral college map, things look good for the Trump campaign in November —
