White House Watch: Trump 42%, Clinton 37%

Donald Trump has now grown his lead over Hillary Clinton in Rasmussen Reports’ first weekly White House Watch survey.

Trump earns 42% support to Clinton’s 37% when Likely U.S. Voters are asked whom they would vote for if the presidential election were held today. But Rasmussen Reports’ latest national telephone survey finds that 13% prefer some other candidate, while seven percent (7%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

At the beginning of this month, Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee, posted a statistically insignificant 41% to 39% lead over Clinton who is still expected to win the Democratic presidential nomination. Fifteen percent (15%) favored someone else, and five percent (5%) were undecided.

Rasmussen Reports will update the Clinton-Trump White House Watch matchup numbers every Thursday morning from now until Election Day in November.

Rasmussen told us Romney was winning, winning right up until he didn't. Let's find a better company.

This company just tells conservatives what they want to hear. Have no track record of actually being correct.

Impossible to really determine due to the amount of voter fraud.

That is not true 10:53 ALMOST every single poll including Rasmussen had Obama ahead all the time in 2012. At the very end Rasmussen (& Gallup) had Romney up by 1 point. The most Romney ever polled higher than Obama was in Oct 2012 and that was by 4 points and it was a Pew Research poll.

Hillary spends most of her speeches telling everyone why Trump shouldn't be president. Not too much about why SHE should be that, except to "fight racism" (in front of black voters), fight for "human rights" (in front of Hispanics -- not all of whom are actual VOTERS), or win the "war against women" (in front of you-know-who), or to fight against narrow minded bigots in the republican party (in front of muslim crowds). I wish she would start fighting against pandering, lying, false concern and fake empathy, bribery, and people using their position to extort hundreds of millions of dollars.
Has she EVER started a company, hired workers (other than other GOVERMENT workers), balanced a budget, looked at a real P&L, or did something that didn't require the rest of the nation to fund it?
The Clinton's have a documented history of murder, bribery, blackmail, extortion, abuse and misuse of authority, drug dealing and the protection of major drug dealers.
She doesn't even really WANT the job except to cap her resume and be an historical figure that will grace the $50 bill.
Even her supporters, like Jon Stewart, see right through her contrivances and fake empathy.
She would be just another politician playing the same scams on "we, the people" in order to enrich herself, her friends, her family, and most importantly, the ones who expect great returns on their multimillion dollar "campaign contribution". AKA: bribes.
And you thought they gave her money because they LIKE her.
NO ONE "likes" her. Not even her husband.
Keep cheering.
