Hillary Clinton’s post-convention lead has disappeared, putting her behind Donald Trump for the first time nationally since mid-July. The latest weekly Rasmussen Reports White House Watch national telephone and online survey shows Trump with 40% support to Clinton’s 39% among Likely U.S. Voters, after Clinton led 42% to 38% a week ago.
Trump attracts 15% of Democrats, while 12% of Republicans prefer Clinton.

Yeah he's going to close the gap I'm sure, but it'll be close regardless.
Other polls from USA today/Suffolk still have Hillary up by 7, and leading by 5 in Pennsylvania.
I do expect as we get closer to the debate we'll see an even 50/50 or a 49/52 split for either. Once we have that first debate that's when the real polling data will start to reflect November 8th.

Ha ha this week polls count.
Clinton's support has been trending down from a high of 44% in early August just after the Democratic National Convention. This is her lowest level of support since mid-July. Trump's support has been eroding, too, from his high of 44% at that time. A one-point lead is statistically insignificant in a survey with a +/- 3 percentage point of margin of error. It highlights, however, that this remains a very close race.

What Trump needs to focus on is the general unfairness of Obama and Hillary on Illegal Aliens. People that went through the system legally, it took years and costs a lot of money. So all these people get a free pass? That is wrong and not fair to them. Anybody who went through that rigorous process would say the same and it all starts at the top which is Obama not wanting to protect the borders, just hand out free passes. No. That is not fair and we are a country of fairness.
