New presidential polls released on Monday show that Democratic nominee Hilary Clinton received a post-convention bounce to overtake Republican nominee Donald Trump with just under 100 days left before the U.S. general election.
According to Real Clear politics which tracks presidential poll results, Clinton now leads Trump by +9 points in a new CNN/ORC poll and +6 points in a new CBS News poll.
Both polls were released on Monday August 1st.
A new PPP poll taken in Pennsylvania, a key battleground and swing state, shows that Clinton has a + 4 point advantage.
More Loose Talk From Donald Trump
On Monday during a press conference, Donald Trump called Hilary “the Devil” as he singled out Bernie Sanders for agreeing to support Clinton in the general election and said Sanders had made a deal with the Devil.
“She’s the devil” Trump said in reference to Clinton.
Last week Donald Trump admitted during a press conference that he was unhappy with some of the speakers at the Democratic convention and wanted to “hit a couple of those speakers so hard.”
Trump explained that he was upset by one particular speaker whom he referred to as a “little guy.”
Trump remarked, “I was gonna hit this guy so hard his head would spin and he wouldn’t know what the hell happened.”
More Debate Controversy With Trump
September 26th is the date for the first general election presidential debate.
Trump tweeted last Friday that it’s “unacceptable” that Hilary Clinton and Democrats are trying to rig the debates so that they compete against major NFL games.
In truth, the bipartisan Commission on Presidential Debates is responsible for selecting the debate schedule and they made their selection last year. Hilary Clinton and Democrats had no role rigging the general election debates.
Trump claimed on ABC’s This Week aired on Sunday that the NFL had sent him a letter expressing their displeasure about having football games that will go directly against the debate schedule.
However, the NFL denied over the week-end that they had ever written such a letter to Donald Trump.
