CNN Poll of Polls: Two points separate Clinton and Trump

Washington (CNN) With the final primaries of the 2016 nomination season approaching, a new CNN Poll of Polls finds the candidates most likely to lead their parties into the general election are locked in a tight contest. Hillary Clinton holds an average of 45% support while 43% back Donald Trump across five recent nationwide polls of registered voters.

The Poll of Polls suggests a vastly different race than many anticipated.

Throughout March and April, public polling on the presidential race found Clinton well ahead of Trump, with the former secretary of state holding double-digit leads over the businessman in 10 out of the 14 polls that met CNN's standards for reporting in those months.

The CNN Poll of Polls is an average of the results of the five most recent nationwide polls of presidential preference among registered voters. The Poll of Polls includes: The CBS News/New York Times poll conducted May 13-17, the Fox News poll conducted May 14-17, the NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll conducted May 15-19, the ABC News/Washington Post poll conducted May 16-19, and the Quinnipiac University Poll conducted May 24-30. The poll of polls does not have a margin of sampling error.

1. I'm sure her numbers will go up

 

Just as soon as she clears up this mess with the FBI and the State Department IG, and assuages peoples' concerns that she's just there to generate more war and more corporate profits, and... huh. She better get crackin'.

2. Still Not Too Late

 

We still have primaries coming up. For those of you yet to vote in the primaries, it is still not too late. Clinton might defeat Trump, or she might not. 2 percentage points isn't insurmountable. Bernie certainly would defeat Trump. For myself, I will only for a Democrat in November if, and only if, that Democrat is Sanders. I won't vote for Trump either. We're working to get Jill Stein onto the Nevada ballot now.
