Hillary Clinton’s national lead over Donald Trump is no more. According to the latest Bloomberg Politics poll, the two candidates are tied in a dead heat heading into Monday night’s first presidential debate:
The Bloomberg Politics poll says Trump and Clinton are each supported by 46 percent of likely voters in a two-way race. In August, Clinton had a 6-point edge over Trump, and in June, Clinton had a comfortable 12-point lead.
In a four-person race, the Trump [sic] now leads Clinton 43-41, Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson gets 8 percent and Green Party nominee Jill Stein gets 4 percent.
Pollster Ann Selzer, who oversaw the survey, speculated that Trump’s rise could be a sign that Clinton’s support among women and young voters is wavering.
The fact that Trump leads Clinton when third-party candidates are included is yet more proof that Trump should send Johnson flowers.
