Dead Heat: Clinton poll numbers drop, Trump voters ‘enthusiastic’

Hillary nuclear response timeWith seven days remaining until Election Day, it’s a virtual dead heat between embattled Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump, with the former trying to appear confident and composed despite a revived email scandal involving disgraced former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner.

Rasmussen Reports revealed Tuesday that among likely voters, Trump and Clinton are now tied. Yesterday Trump trailed Clinton 45-42 percent, but this number is bouncing back and forth. This comes at the same time that Rasmussen also notes only 31 percent of likely voters think the country is headed in the right direction. Sixty-three percent think the country is on the wrong path.

The Los Angeles Times daily tracking poll has Trump up by more than three points, 46.9 percent to Clinton’s 43.3 percent.

And The Hill reported Tuesday morning that Trump has passed Clinton with a 1-point lead, 46-45 percent.

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

Coincidentally, the New York Times dropped a bit of a bomb on a favorite recent theme of Democrats, that Russians hacked into their e-mails in order to influence the election. The Times is reporting that, “Law enforcement officials say that none of the investigations so far have found any conclusive or direct link between Mr. Trump and the Russian government. And even the hacking into Democratic emails, F.B.I. and intelligence officials now believe, was aimed at disrupting the presidential election rather than electing Mr. Trump.”

Besides, the alleged Russian hack has been used by Democrats to deflect public attention away from the meat of the e-mails exposed by WikiLeaks. So far, nobody has stepped forward to declare that the e-mails are a fabrication.

Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson is trailing a dismal third place at 3 percent, and at this point, there is some speculation that he could pull just enough votes away from Trump to make it a skin-tight finish next Tuesday.

Clinton may not be able to recover from the e-mail bombshell dropped last week by FBI Director James Comey. On the other hand, if she does win Nov. 8, there is already speculation that her presidency would be something of a train wreck with ongoing investigations hounding her throughout.

According to The Hill, 53 percent of likely voters have “strong enthusiasm” for Trump, while only 45 percent are as enthusiastic about Clinton.
