New Poll Since Debate Shows Shift In Trump’s Poll Numbers
Highest poll participation ...

After millions of Americans watched Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton debate on Monday night, a new poll shows support for Trump is increasing.

The USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times Daybreak tracking poll, which tracks Americans’ support for the presidential candidates on a daily basis, showed that as of Tuesday, Trump is leading Clinton 46.7 percent to 42.6 percent.

The poll, which unlike other polls tracks the same population over time, represents a significant comeback for Trump, who as of Aug. 14 was trailing Clinton 46.3 percent to 41.6 percent.

The national poll tracks the voting preferences of 3,000 participating voters, but not every voter participates every day. Participation in the wake of the debate was at 90 percent, making it one of the highest participation days since the poll began in July.

Trump has significant leads in many demographic groups.

He now leads Clinton among voters aged 18-34, 44.7 percent to 39.2 percent. Clinton had led among this group throughout the early part of the campaign.

Voters between 35-64 years old also side with Trump 45.5 percent to 43.5 percent. This group has changed preferences repeatedly. Trump also continues to lead among older voters with a 49.5 percent to 44.7 percent lead among voters 65 and over.

From the start, Trump has held a vast lead over Clinton among voters with a high school education or less, and trailed her among college graduates. Among voters with some college education, Trump posts a lead of 48.3 percent to 40 percent.

Among white voters, Trump leads 54.8 percent to 33.7 percent. Although his current 18.2 percent support among black voters is an increase from the summer, Clinton still has a strong showing among black voters with 74.3 percent. Clinton also leads among Hispanic voters, but by a narrower margin of 56.8 percent to 31.8 percent.

Clinton had led among women from the start, and currently leads Trump 50 percent to 38.8 percent. Among men, Trump leads Clinton 54.9 percent to 35.1 percent.

Voters with incomes under $35,000 have favored Clinton throughout the campaign. She leads Trump 49.5 percent to 39.2 percent among these voters. Voters with incomes from $35,000 to $75,000 favor Trump 51.1 percent to 37.6 percent. Upper income voters support Trump 47.9 percent to 43.2 percent.

In assessing the debate, Britt Hume of Fox News focused on the candidates’ faces as he opined about how voters would assess the candidates.

“The question for a lot of people I’m sure was, for assessing their judgment is, what did they think of the two faces that they saw while the candidates were not talking, while they were listening?” he said.

“The Trump expression is one we’re all familiar with from the earlier debates. He looked annoyed, put out, uncomfortable and she looked, I think, for the most part, she looked composed, smug sometimes, not necessarily attractive.”

  1. for Trump to win it will be necessary that he increase his lead by more than the percentage that the Democrat Socialists can steal through various forms of voter fraud. We just saw on Fox an illustration of voter fraud in the person of the islamic terrorist who shot 5 or 6 people in a Washington State Mall and who, although illegally, had voted 3 times, in three separate election cycles.

  2. The #BenghaziBitch is NOT fit to be our president! I have NO sympathy for #CrookedHillary, she is RESPONSIBLE for their deaths, her and Hussein!! The EVIL WITCH has the gall to talk about people name-calling, blaming, race-baiting, and making excuses! EVERYTHING that the witch called #TRUMP is EXACTLY how she operates!! She and Hussein both should be in prison!!

  3. First of all, I would give Trump a C on his performance, and Hillary a B. She was actually better and looked more presidential although she is a lying bitch! Trump screwed up on the nigger question. The nigger asked him a question about him not renting to niggers in the 1970s (40 fucking years ago). The reason is because niggers destroy everything they touch.

    Trump should have been contrite and said what he did wrong to the African American people and now sees that what he did was wrong, and his long career of hiring African Americans only prove the point that he respects the African American people. How did he answer: He said everybody did it! He should have brought up how Hillary kissed up to the Grand Cyclops himself Robert Byrd of the KKK, and how Bill once said that in another time and place Obama would be poring coffee for him. Trump screwed up the nigger question. He had a chance and he fucked it up.
