Even factoring in the normal bounce surrounding political conventions, Democrat Hillary Clinton has not experienced an appreciable uptick in the most recent polls. In five separate surveys, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is ahead in three, the two candidates tie at 37 points in one and Clinton is up by a paltry two points in another, according to Real Clear Politics.
Hillary tanks with voters in the areas of honesty, trustworthiness and even something as basic as likeability.
Averaging the numbers the scores look no better for Hillary with Trump at 40.0 to Hillary’s 38.8. In what appears to be a close race, Libertarian and Green party candidates could factor into the outcome. Nothing like spoilers, with no chance of winning, but eager to be the Zika mosquito in the ointment. We are witnessing that pathetic spectacle right here in the Arizona U.S. Senate race..
