Donald Trump Appears to Have Been Unaffected by Recent Controversies
A surprising new SurveyUSA poll has found that Donald Trump now leads Hillary Clinton nationwide, with 45% compared to her 40%. This is a dramatic change from earlier editions of the same poll which showed Clinton handily beating Trump. In May, Clinton was defeating Trump by 58% to 30%.
The email scandal has hit Clinton hard according to the poll, as her numbers have slid in recent months. Trump also leads other potential Democratic candidates, 44% to 40% against Bernie Sanders, 44% to 42% against Vice President Joe Biden, and 44% to 41% against former vice-president and presidential candidate Al Gore.
