More New Polls Show Clinton Ahead Of Trump In Week Following Debate


Two new polls indicate that Hillary Clinton regained the advantage against Donald Trump in the aftermath of their first debate — which the Democratic presidential nominee was widely seen as having won.

A new CNN/ORC poll released on October 3 showed a five-point lead for Clinton over Trump among likely voters, with Clinton at 47 percent, Trump at 42 percent, Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson at seven percent, and the Green Party’s Jill Stein at two percent. The same poll suggested that voters see Clinton as the superior candidate in temperament and qualifications — and that her supporters have grown more enthusiastic about her candidacy in the wake of the debate while enthusiasm for Trump has waned.

The details of the CNN/ORC poll showed Clinton improving her scores significantly among men, independents, and non-college educated white voters.

In the first CBS News poll since the debate, also released on October 3, Clinton notched a four-point lead over Trump among likely voters, with 45 percent supporting the Democrat and 41 percent supporting the Republican. The CBS survey also showed Johnson with eight percent and Stein with three percent — all results that are roughly consistent with the CNN/ORC findings. A pre-debate CBS poll had showed Clinton and Trump tied at 42 percent each in a four-way race.

Clinton’s current lead mirrors the final tally of the 2012 presidential race, which Barack Obama won by four points over Mitt Romney in the popular vote. Johnson took just under one percent in that race, while Stein garnered just over one-third of one percent.

The Reuters-Ipsos tracking poll, which relies on a larger online sample of 15,000 voters, has showed a similar consistent lead for Clinton following the first debate. Broken down by state, that poll indicated a narrowing of the race in certain battlegroud states, including Florida and Ohio, where Trump edged closer to Clinton; in other states, including Maine, Pennsylvania, Oregon, Clinton expanded her lead. Overall, the Reuters-Ipsos analysis found Clinton now ahead in probable Electoral College votes by 246 to 180 — with a predicted 88 percent chance that she would accumulate the 270 votes required to win the election.

    So explain WHY no one wants to BE SEEN with her ? Empty seats at any of her rally sites /SMALL venues ? And Trump has THOUSANDS , Standing room only AND thousands turned away For lack of seating ?

    1. FT66 October 4, 2016

      I beg you to continue comforting yourself this way. You will wake up to the reality early morning on November 9.

      1. Eleanore Whitaker October 4, 2016

        Trump has already been proven to have lied about the number of people who have endorsed him. He said he had “over 200” top names. Not true. The joke is that Trump has done more damage among his own CEO crooks and now they consider him a toxic landfill.

        Thanks to Trump lying so often, these CEO know that the red flags over their own business tactics and strategies are shining a huge light on the massive corruption the Republicans and right wing pulled over since Reaganomics obliterated the middle class.

        The pendulum swings…and they are about to get hit in their butts with it. They have Trump to thank for that.

        1. Louis Allen November 13, 2016

          Lenora dear,
          Who was the one REALLY hit in her (sorry and FAT) butt??
          Go back to The White Lilly Institution for the Mentally Infirm in New Jersey. You were released prematurely, …. and it is so obvious …
          P.S. – Do you REALLY think that when PRESIDENT ELECT DONALD J. TRUMP uttered the phrase “nasty woman” he was referring to Hil-LIAR-y??

          1. Eleanore Whitaker November 22, 2016

            Screwy Louie Mutt…Who was the one who rigged the election if not you and your hick mutton chops and corn pones? Since I live in a Trump state where he once did business, I know more than you EVER will about his tactics. You voted for a greedy SOB. Just like you. Now you want to get a job now or do we need to shove your pig like face in the slop?

          2. Louis Allen December 12, 2016

            Lenora dear,
            Sour grapes, sour grapes, sour grapes !!
            EAT CROW !! Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, haaaaaaa!!!!!
            You poor pathetic woman and EX (thankGod!!!)-wife !!
            P.S. – The Burkes called me again after the election to find out (they are TRULY worried, Ellie!!) how you were taking such a blow to your small tit.., er, I mean, to your Fidel Castro-like EGO.
            I told them the truth: that you had to be re-admitted to White Lilly Institution for the Mentally Disturbed in your home state of New Jersey….
            P.S.2. – PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP sends his best !!!
            LOL !!!!
            P.S.3. – Lenora, please don’t go back to drugs, dear. Please.
            Drugs have destroyed your (small) brain, or what’s left of it.
            Tsk, tsk, tsk, tsk, tsk !!!!!

          3. roguerunners January 31, 2017

            Talk about pathetic! That would be you who has to vote yourself up. Hahahahaha! LOSER

          4. Louis Allen February 2, 2017

            Yep. My mistake. Unintentional.
            …. but you, sweetie, are unintentionally obtuse.
            …. your woman, dear, lost the election because she is a fraud.
            And your woman will end up in prison for a few years.
            And so will “Bent” Willie, ….. at another federal penitentiary.

          5. roguerunners February 2, 2017

            Not before Trump is there warming up the cell. You voted yourself up more than once or twice. Was that unintentional as well?

        2. Louis Allen November 21, 2016

          Lenora dear, you are now soooo silent, dear!!
          Still licking your (festering, foul-smelling) wounds??

          1. Eleanore Whitaker November 22, 2016

            Hey Foreign boy. You plan on telling us just how illegal YOU are? How about that Richard Spence? The Neo Nazi giving Trump the Heil Trump last night in his speech? Like that. You try that in my state and you will get your butt kicked back into your hick state where they need illegals like you to do all their dirty pig work. Eat “it” and die you jerkoff.

      2. Bill P October 4, 2016

        That was a perfect answer to another misinformed right wing troll.

        1. Louis Allen November 21, 2016

          Another pathetic, sore LOSER !!
          Ha, ha, ha, ha, haaaa!!!

        2. Louis Allen December 12, 2016

          Bill P,

          Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, haaaaaaaaaaa!!!!
          EAT CROW, baby !!
          PRESIDENT Donald J. Trump !!!
          P.S. – jmprint, you are ANOTHER complete iiidiiott!!

          1. Bill P December 13, 2016

            Wow you really got me with your high level wit and display of infinite intelligence. Your comment about Trump is somewhat premature just like you are. Trump is the President-elect and will not be the president until he is sworn in on 1/20/2017. The president right now is President Barack Hussein Obama. Being called an “iiidiiott!!” by a troll who can’t spell it an honor. Keep up the great work. By the way writing in all capital letters has no effect on the quality of your inane comments. I enjoy reading infantile comments.

          2. Louis Allen December 22, 2016

            Sorry Billy BOY!!
            Your GIRL lost BADLY !!!
            Ha, ha, ha, ha, haaaaa!!!!!

          3. Bill P December 23, 2016

            I hope you are around 13yo otherwise your replies show an extremely low intelligence and maturity level. It amazes me that it takes you so long to come up with a reply that is so infantile, I’m taking back my 13yo comment you must be about 7 or 8 yo to write this silly reply.

      3. Louis Allen November 13, 2016

        FT, what happened to you and your CORRUPT, Crooked Hil-LIAR-y??
        Your November 9 morning pain in your impaled a$$ not gone yet??

        1. FT66 November 14, 2016

          Reince Priebus cooked the election in FL, NC, PA, WI. We are aware of what he has done there. This man is another crook. He deserves to be behind the bars.

          1. Louis Allen November 21, 2016

            You liberal/socialist/”progressive” purrverts are PATHETIC.
            Your who.. LOST because she was corrupt and the people noticed.
            Now go back to your momma’s basement with “Eleanore”….
            Tsk, tsk, tsk, tsk ….

    2. Eleanore Whitaker October 4, 2016

      Hey hick, I realize you unregulated militia men who try to prove you can survive in DogPatch on reality TV shows that are as phony as you are, but unless you are brain dead, Hillary IS ahead by 7 points and her campaign crowds far outnumber Trump’s. And if you continue to lie about “thousands” at Trump rallies, I’ll be the first to make a liar out of you Duck Dynasty King, Trump was caught lying about GM moving to Canada, he lied seconds after he uttered his most infamous words that he pays no taxes because he is “smart.”

      Time for you DogPatch hicks to stop pretending you are powerful. You have as much power across this country as a fledgling in a nest.

      Trump doesn’t have thousands. You can Google the number of sites who have proven that is a bare faced lie. Now, do yourself a big favor. Ditch those hick denim coveralls with the suspenders, that phony beard and that act that you are some kind of Master of the Universe. You are a grain of sand on the Sahara. Man up.

      1. Louis Allen November 13, 2016

        Give it a rest, dear Lenora, considering the FACT that PRESIDENT-ELECT DONALD TRUMP just WHIPPED Crooked Hil-LIAR-y’s fat a$$.
        Your obsessions are the main cause of your mental condition ….

    3. Jon October 4, 2016

      Trump started lying about the number of people at his rallies during the primaries and hasn’t stopped since. If you took a few minutes to research it you wouldn’t be repeating his completely debunked lie. Or live in Trumpworld. Whichever you prefer.

    4. Thoughtopsy October 4, 2016

      Because it’s hard to be enthused by someone talking about good government policy and displaying a capable and even temperament.

      But it’s easy and entertaining to watch a WWE match… even though it’s fake and full of bullsh1t.

  3. Eleanore Whitaker October 4, 2016

    The “men” in this country who think they are sooooo powerful are about to get knocked on their butts. They never had autonomous power. All they had was an act they perpetuated in public with their maws gaping, fists pumping and chests puffed.

    The Republican Party is in deep trouble and they know it. They’ve already been warned by the Justice Department to stop trying to frame Hillary. Gowdy, Chief Rabid Dog, may end up in jail for “editing” those Benghazi emails. Cotton may go to prison for collusion with Netanyahu and their back and forth correspondence to which he had NO right since he is NOT a member of the Executive Branch.

    As for Chaffetz, Punk Boy with the Roy Cohn copycat rat bag style, he too is in hot water for editing that video he used to try and nail Planned Parenthood. Notice how fast his Koch handlers told Chaffetz to back off on that?

    Even the Koch boys are now under more strenuous public watch thanks to Trump. These crooks have gotten away with brazen, ruthless criminal acts they tried to claim are loopholes. When loopholes become abuse of the law, it’s time to throw them in jail.

    1. Louis Allen November 13, 2016

      Hi, Lenora ! I’m BAAAACK !!
      For the liberal cockroaches on this cesspool of liberal retards, I am Lenore’s (her REAL name) ex (thank God!)-husband (I was able to put up with her for “only” 3 years, the absolute WORST years of my entire life.)
      Lenora, you old, ugly, fat cowww, what the heck happened to your IDOL Hil-LIAR-y ???!!! Did both of you fall down the stairs and break your dishonest and thick skulls??
      Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, haaaaa!!!!
      It’s PRESIDENT TRUMP to you now, you old f*rt !!
      P. S. – The Burkes send (again) their best. I told them, since they are still worried about you, that you recently were released from White Lilly Institution for the Brain Impaired in your home state of New Jersey and that you are doing better (still a men-hating, women-loving “purrvert”, but “better” nonetheless). Please call them when you can spare a moment from crying your $toopid tears about what happened (and about what’s GOING to happen) to Crooked Hil-LIAR-y.
      In the meantime, my best to you; no rancor whatsoever from me since I know for a fact that you, dear, are a sick woman …..
      Your ever-loving,

  4. Jon October 4, 2016

    Trump was constantly bragging about his poll numbers during the primaries and how they showed people love him. Following last Monday’s debate Trump was telling everyone at his rallies in the following days that all of the polls including a nonexistent CBS poll showed he had won either being too stupid to know those snap or troll polls were not accurate and were for entertainment only as people could vote as many times as they wanted or he knew that and tried to mislead his followers hoping they were too uninformed to know that. He just can’t accept losing and will lie, belittle, mislead, cheat and use Russians to try to win. He is unfit to hold any office of trust.

    1. John James October 4, 2016

      Its the opposite is true. Hillary bots are all over everywhere. But they can’t fill the stadium like Trump does. Hillary should be in prison, if the laws are correctly applied.

      1. Jon October 5, 2016

        Another sad example of the Dunning-Kruger effect in action. I know you can’t help yourself. Poor thing.

        1. John James October 5, 2016

          Come to Hillary rallies sometimes. I mean 300 people is so worse.
