While two new polls today show Clinton's leads in battle ground states growing even larger Trump whacked by more damaging polls The Republican nominee's backslide shows no sign of easing




The Washington Post poll from Virginia found Hillary Clinton leading Trump by a whopping 14 points among registered voters, 52 percent to 38 percent, and by eight points among likely voters, 51 percent to 43 percent.




In Florida, where presidential fortunes have been often won, lost or drawn out in historic fashion, Clinton now leads Trump 48 percent to 39 percent among likely voters, drawing large support from women, from the state’s racially diverse population and notably, from 12 percent of Florida Republican voters.


And with the weeks Trump has had since the Conventions this comes as no real surprise. At some point he has stop the bleeding and turn things around if he even wants to be competitive in this race.



And experts who have studied presidential campaigns for decades have concluded that no candidate in Trump’s polling position at this stage of the race has gone on to win the popular vote in modern times — though they’re not fully writing off the unprecedented candidate yet.


And if Trump is going to turn it around he needs to do something about his appeal to the 35 and under crowd. Poll Shows Young Voters Rejecting Trump at Record Rate




USA Today reported that Democrat Hillary Clinton leads Trump 56 percent to 20 percent among those under 35 years old. If other candidates are added to the survey, Clinton would win 50 percent, Trump 18 percent, Libertarian Gary Johnson 11 percent and Green Party nominee Jill Stein 4 percent.


Now lets put those numbers for Trump in perspective



The worst showing ever among young voters is considered to be for Republican Richard Nixon, who received 32 percent in the 1972 election, according to USA Today.


Trump is at 20% or 18% when you ad in Stein and Johnson. Not that they love Clinton either as the likely hood they will vote dropped from 76% to 72% since Sanders left the race.

Still while terrible for Trump, it is the long term trouble for the GOP that has be considered.




If Trump’s historically bad showing among young voters holds on election day, it could have long-range implications, because it would be the first time since such data became available in 1952 that the Democrats would have won double digit victories among young voters for three straight presidential elections.





the number of Millennials in the U.S. is estimated at 75.4 million and is now larger than the members of the Baby Boom generation, who are now between the ages of 51 and 69.


It was not always this way



As recently as the 1984 and 1988 elections, Republicans held a double digit advantage among young voters, with the two parties about evenly split among this sector in the 2000 race.


So this is not all on Trump. The GOP parade of crazy over the last decade has been shooting itself in the foot when it comes to long term survival. Trump just seems to be the nail in the coffin.

Additional info from the poll


50 percent of voters under 35 support the Democratic Party, 20 percent the Republican, and 17 percent are Independents.

At least 50 percent of young voters said Trump seemed less presidential, less credible and less trustworthy after the Republican National Convention, while a more than a two-to-one margin said he seemed less human.

After the Democratic National conventions, 39 percent to 27 percent said Clinton seemed more rather than less presidential, and 35 percent to 23 percent said she appeared more human. On the question of Clinton being more or less trustworthy, young people were split at 31 percent .

57 percent of young Clinton supporters say they back her because she has the right experience to lead, while only 22 percent of Trump supporters say that of him.

54 percent of Trump supporters say one of the main reasons they back him is to keep Clinton out of the White House, while 51 percent of Clinton supporters say the same about preventing Trump from becoming president.


The GOPs has a lot a problems on its plate and this is going to be the biggest of them. The GOP in many was has become like Trump, it caters to its base and never does anything to expand it.

I am not sure how Trump could make an appeal to this group this late in the game. What is amazing about these polls is that Trumps fear based convention seems to have backfired. However, the DNC is not knocking the socks off of the 35 and under crowd either. It seems in this case Trump is just so bad they are backing Clinton but, these could be the people who go go third party in the long run. After all Johnson is only trailing Trump by 7 points with this group. Could this be the generation that ends the two parties as we know them?

And when will Trump hit rock bottom in the polls. At some point the slide has to stop. The question is when and how does he make up that ground?

The same people who gave us Obama. It's good to be young, idealistic, before you wake up and see the world as it really is.

Conspiracy-minded. . . . but why do we need almost daily polls?

It's as if the media is desperate to push the narrative that Trump is behind.

But why? What is the media trying to sell?

That smell. Sniiifffffs it up. It's the smell of fear. The MSM are trying their best. I'll give 'em that.

But they're scared. And it's not just the Media that's scared. The Dems are scared. And the establishment RINOs are scared.

What 0bama hinted at during his campaign is coming now. That's CHANGE. I think 0bama knew it all along too.

I don't particularly care for Trump. If MrSpad was running for President, I'd bet he'd honestly poll at around 98% running against all of the other four potential candidates. But ... he's not. And what I've been saying all along is what's most likely going to happen.

Trump ... Landslide ... Get Ready For It!!

It's all part of Trumps plan to destroy the GOP...hand over the senate and house to the dembs. He knows exactly what he is doing.

conspiracy minded indeed....

Like I said in the last "polls" showing Trump ahead in some and Clinton ahead in others, polls are for those easily lead. They are for the weak minded who are subject to peer pressure and easily influenced. Polls are for zombies.

They had the opportunity, after Obama was elected a second time, to change their platform and be more accepting of people's personal choices, which I think drives young people a LOT. Young people are, in general, more open-minded, more understanding and more accepting of those different from themselves. Don is the poster boy against a live-and-let-live mindset.

I've had that same thought. This is truly indicative of the split of the GOP. And on the left, there was a strong Hillary/Bernie split. I'm excited by that for the younger generations.



The question is when and how does he make up that ground?


He doesn't. He can't take back what he's said and done. He can't become more inclusive in his policies and still have those policies. He can't unsay what he said about the Khan family or about the purple heart. No matter how many 'reasonable' speeches he reads from teleprompters, the majority of people are too smart to think that perhaps, he's not as bad as they once thought. He's blown it.

But, of course, the blame lies entirely on the left...
