Donald leads Hillary by 2 and 5 points in latest surveys
WASHINGTON – Two national daily tracking polls show Donald Trump leading Hillary Clinton by between 1 and 5.6 points in the latest surveys.
In the Los Angeles Times daily tacking poll, Trump has taken his largest lead yet in the campaign with a 5.6 percent edge – 48.2 to 42.6.
In the Investors Business Daily national tracking poll, which has proven to be the most accurate indicator in presidential elections since 2004, Trump has extended his lead over Hillary Clinton, 43 percent to 41 percent.
Trump’s two-point lead now matches his largest so far during the 20 days of polling.
The IBD/TIPP poll results follow the “November surprise” from FBI Director James Comey, who announced Sunday he would not pursue the criminal investigation of Clinton for her email scandal.
Perhaps significantly, the L.A. Times poll shows the gender gap now hurts Hillary Clinton.
