The poll results include responses from 783 likely voters, with a weighted partisan breakdown of 282 Democrats, 226 Republicans, and 259 Independents. The results reflect the rolling average of six days' worth of polling.
Unrounded, Trump leads 42.6% to 40.8% — a 1.8-point edge — with Johnson at 7.2% and Stein at 3.3%. Trump also holds a nearly one-point lead in a two-way matchup — 43.2% to 42.3%.
Trump does better than Clinton among men (48% to 34%), lower-income voters (48% to 35%), rural voters (60% to 22%), and those who express a religion.
Clinton beats Trump with women (46% to 38%), voters ages 18-44 (41% to 34%), the wealthy (47% to 38%), and investors (48% to 38%).
Clinton, meanwhile, has been acting as if the presidential race is all but won. Over the weekend she was, according to The New York Times, "working to ensure a victory that is decisive enough to earn a mandate for her presidency." The Washington Post reported that "emboldened by polls predicting an electoral-college landslide in the presidential race, Clinton is shifting her strategy to lift up other Democrats coast to coast."
Given how poorly Clinton is connecting with farmers...she is likely unaware of the old saying about counting chickens before they are hatched. It Ain't Over 'Til the Pantsuited Lady Sings Yes...I know...it is just one Poll (but it is a more balanced one than the ones coming out of CNN, NBC and the other Clinton mouthpieces).

Glad you posted this. I'm SO sick of the tired, old trick of trying to persuade voters on the fence by declaring "that candidate's done. Election over."
If you recall, that technique was used heavily in the 2000 presidential election for BOTH candidates and it ended up being the closest election in history.
Back in 1980 Gallup had Jimmy Carter up over Ronald Reagan by 4 points in mid to late September… And, Carter was up 8 points in October. In fact there was a published Gallup poll showing Carter up six among likely voters in a poll conducted Oct. 24 to 27.
Ronald Reagan ended up winning by 9 points and taking 44 states.

Science says otherwise. Plus if you read again you will see that I actually said women tend to vote with their feels, and not the blanket statement you are trying to suggest I made. a reply to: Sillyolme

It's called pure ignorance and Trump is their King. He is the most ignorant, whiny, thin skinned person to ever run for president. He's the poster child of what not to be when running for office. But yet, scandal after scandal combined with his own stupid stream of thought people still LOVE him. I don't get it.
Can anyone lead the right wing by simply stating the same conspiracy theories they believe in?
