Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton leads Republican rival Donald Trump by 12 percentage points among likely voters, her strongest showing this month, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Tuesday.
The Aug. 18-22 poll showed that 45 percent of voters supported Clinton, while 33 percent backed Trump ahead of the Nov. 8 election.
Clinton, the former U.S. secretary of state, has led Trump, a New York businessman, throughout most of the 2016 campaign. But her latest lead represents a stronger level of support than polls indicated over the past few weeks. Earlier in August, Clinton's lead over Trump ranged from 3 to 9 percentage points in the poll.
I am going to go out on a limb and predict that this is essentially how things are going to go from here on out. You know with a few weird outliers and false polls showing up here and there.
There is virtually no way for Trump to pick up any new voters (After all how many racists can there really be in this country?) so that leaves it up to Hillary to attract the independents and disenfranchised Republicans to beef up her numbers even more.
And once again let me remind everybody that this is good news, but ONLY if we do not get complacent and think our vote is not important.
It is, VERY important.
