Democrats and their many allies in the media have unleashed an unprecedented attack on Donald Trump over the last few weeks but despite their best efforts, this is still a very close race.
Hot Air reports:
Despite all the headlines, Reuters/Ipsos poll has the race nearly tied
You’ve seen all of the headlines by now, I’m sure, including several examples here at Hot Air. The polls have been piling up since the end of the conventions and the news for Donald Trump is uniformly bad. To follow the themes of this coverage, the man is getting beaten worse than Stone Hands Duran at the feet of Sugar Ray Leonard. (You young folks can go Google those names. No mas!) And to be sure, there’s no question that Hillary Clinton has gotten a significant bounce in the polls after her own acceptance speech in Philadelphia just as Trump did after the big party in Cleveland. But is The Donald really out of the running? While the other polls were drawing all the gloom and doom headlines on CNN and MSNBC, the ongoing Reuters-Ipsos survey had a diffferent story to tell.
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s lead over Republican rival Donald Trump narrowed to less than 3 percentage points, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Friday, down from nearly eight points on Monday.
About 42 percent of likely voters favored Clinton, to Trump’s 39 percent, according to the July 31-Aug. 4 online poll of 1,154 likely voters. The poll had a credibility interval of plus or minus 3 percentage points, meaning that the results suggest the race is roughly even.
Among registered voters over the same period, Clinton held a lead of five percentage points, down from eight percentage points on Monday, according to the poll.
Rest assured, the media will keep attacking Trump.
In fact, the negative reporting will likely get worse in the coming months.
