Rasmussen Poll Shows Trump Pulling Ahead

 

Trump turns it around in one week.

 

The reports of Trump’s dying in the polls appears to be premature, at least according to Rasmussen who today (June 30th) produced a new presidential election poll showing presumptive GOP candidate Donald J. Trump passing his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.

According to the poll (click HERE), Trump has overcome a 5 point deficit from just one week ago and now leads…

43% – Trump
39% – Clinton
12% – Like another candidate
05% – Undecided

As Rasmussen points out, last week it was Clinton at 44%, and Trump at 39%. The company also claims this is Trump’s highest level of support in its matchups with Clinton since last October.

Rasmussen also reports, “Trump now earns 75% support among his fellow Republicans and picks up 14% of the Democratic vote. Seventy-six percent (76%) of Democrats like Clinton, as do 10% of GOP voters.”

So what has happened since the last poll to cause such a turnaround? Plenty:

* The UK’s Brexit from the European Union.
* The House’s Benghazi Committee Report was issued.
* Trump’s speech on trade policy.
* and now the Muslim Terrorist attack in Turkey.

All of this may be turning the heads of voters.

We’re now less than five months away from the presidential election, and a lot can change, but this is the first bit of good news for the Trump camp in the last few weeks.

Keep the Faith!
