Where the presidential race stands today

The USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times "Daybreak" poll tracks about 3,000 eligible voters until election day, asking on a regular basis about their support for Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump or other candidates as well as their likelihood of actually casting a ballot.

We update the data each day based on the weighted average of poll responses over the previous week. That means results have less volatility than some other polls, but also means the poll lags somewhat in responding to major events in the campaign. More about the poll and why it differs from others.
Who would you vote for?

We ask voters what the chance is that they will vote for Trump, Clinton or someone else, using a 0-100 scale. The overall level of support for each candidate reflects the weighted average of those responses.

Hillary Clinton 40.4% Donald Trump 47.0% Area of uncertainty* Based on 2,112 respondents As of Jul. 27, 2016

It doesnt matter. There are now and will forever more be more scum than good people. Look around you and tell me I'm wrong. They outnumber us. Not one person who gets "assistance" from the government is ever going to vote against the government.
