LATEST POLL JUNE 1 Clinton 40% Trump 38% Johnson 5% Stein 3%

USA TODAY
Poll: Clinton barely ahead of Trump nationally
BY Eliza Collins
June 1, 2016


Hillary Clinton holds just a slight advantage over Donald Trump nationally, but her lead grew tighter when third-party candidates are added into the race.

A Quinnipiac University Poll out Wednesday found that when Clinton and Trump were one-on-one in a national general election matchup, she held a 4-point lead over the billionaire, 45% to 41%.

That number tightens even more when Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein were added. When all four candidates were factored in, the former secretary of State had 40%, Trump had 38%, Johnson had 5% and Stein got 3%.

The Trump-Clinton matchup had a noticeable gender gap. Fifty-one percent of men went Republican, while 35% of men went Democratic. Meanwhile, 54% of women surveyed backed Clinton, while 30% supported Trump.

There is some good news for Bernie Sanders in the survey. The Vermont senator led Trump in a general election matchup 48% to 39%.

Clinton. Bush. Perot. Tied with Clinton last. That turned out fine.

8. Hard to believe

that anybody but that hardcore percentage of 25% (or whatever that still gave Dubya a positive rating at the end of his residency) would even consider that buffoon.

10. Be nice if Sanders supporters would get behind her the way we get behind him

in these polls. Do you know that is the main reason why she doesn't do as well? Sanders supporters are still in primary mode. Once the primaries end and people like Elizabeth Warren (and Bernie eventually) come out for HRC her leads will grow.

11. Obama was behind McCain this week in 2008.

President McCain won that election and went on to win in 2016 as well.

12. Obama was a likeable and popular candidate. Hillary is disliked and untrusted by most voters.

 

This is not a repeat of the 2008 primary and general election.
