L.A. Times Poll

48% Trump vs 41% Clinton

Donald Trump is enjoying his strongest position in the presidential race since immediately after his nominating convention and, for the first time, has started to significantly close the gap with Hillary Clinton on the question of which candidate voters expect will win — a shift that could boost...

Remember the polls only count and considered credible if they show Hillary in the lead.

good info. You will be able to post the same story every day until November 8. Because Trump is increasing his lead over Hillary bit by bit every day as American voters wise up

Youse guys slay me; quoting the LA Times. What a joke.

EVERY presidential cycle, its the same. Each candidate gets a bump in the polls after their respective conventions. The Republican Turd is shown to surge in September up to the debates, then starts to fall after the debates, then come late October up to election day, the Democrat Turd surges to a healthy lead and voila! Another Democrat POTUS.

The polls are a total scam.

LA Times is unique in that it began with a 3000 person sample that had a +7 Republican Bias...it then polls 1/7th of that same sample weekly and weights (changes) the outcome to reflect closer to how those people voted in 2012.
It's an experimental polling method.

Everyone agrees that it is 6 or 7 points bias for Trump.

That may be true but it's clear the race is swinging in Trumps favor.

I think the polls are accurate - but you never know who will actually go out and vote November 1st. BTW - In the last 36 years we've had 20 years of Republican Presidents so your argument is completely wrong.

So you're denying Hillary is losing support and Trump is gaining ground? Obviously you are clueless.

If anything I expect the polls are slanted to Hillary.

The Liberals have managed to shame many Conservatives into silence.

I still think the polls are rigged.

When its a close race, the media can always fudge the figures and put their guy on top.

But when its a blow out, you cannot trick the people any more. all you can do is pad the results to make it seems less of a blow out.

I think, reality would have trump 10+ points ahead

So the polls are always slanted an not to be trusted, unless they are showing my candidate in the lead?

Does no one remember Ron Paul and his polling numbers?

In the last 6 Presidential elections, a republican has only won the popular vote once.

Even that one time Republicans won in the last 20 years...it was only by 0.5%

No...I was pointing out the LA Poll is an experimental poll with a +6 republican bias...And while the polls are tightening...Hillary remains solidly in the lead...Obviously you are more a child barking pointless insults than an adult with the ability to read, think and discuss.

Accuses me of insults, and then goes on to insult. Interesting.

No they aren't. Some polls are bad, some polls are good. They are ALL useful if you can think critically enough to understand them.

If you are going to make declarative statements about things, maybe you should explain why and have some actual proof.

On Topic:

Trump & Clinton are in a dead heat:

Whenever two opposing polls get the opposite results, they are more likely to be tied than either one of them being ahead.
