White House Watch: Trump 40%, Clinton 39%, Johnson 7%, Stein 3%

Hillary Clinton’s post-convention lead has disappeared, putting her behind Donald Trump for the first time nationally since mid-July.

The latest weekly Rasmussen Reports White House Watch national telephone and online survey shows Trump with 40% support to Clinton’s 39% among Likely U.S. Voters, after Clinton led 42% to 38% a week ago. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson now earns seven percent (7%) of the vote, down from nine percent (9%) the previous two weeks, while Green Party candidate Jill Stein picks up three percent (3%) support. Three percent (3%) like some other candidate, and seven percent (7%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Clinton's support has been trending down from a high of 44% in early August just after the Democratic National Convention. This isher lowest level of support since mid-July. Trump's support has been eroding, too, from his high of 44% at that time. A one-point lead is statistically insignificant in a survey with a +/- 3 percentage point of margin of error. It highlights, however, that this remains a very close race.

Both major candidates have lost some support this week from voters in their respective parties. Trump now has the backing of 71% of Republicans, down from 76% a week ago. Clinton has 73% of the Democratic vote, down from 79% in the previous survey. Trump attracts 15% of Democrats, while 12% of Republicans prefer Clinton. The GOP nominee continues to hold a small lead among voters not affiliated with either major political party, this week leading 36% to 28%

Still lying to us to save Hillary's face, which is about to fall off in one of her coughing attacks. The MSM makes these numbers up on a daily basis, and only releases the ones that make it look like a neck and neck race.

The rest of have been outside, and have seen nothing but TRUMP signs and stickers, and NO Hillary signs and stickers.

How stupid do you all want to be????

8:24 and 8:38 I agree with you both.
I believe that the vast majority of Americans are for Trump, but the media i strying its best to make people think otherwise.
Hillary is a corrupt cranky sickly old bitch that should be in prison and not anywhere near any government job.
You Democrats out there really need to think about the future of the world with Hillary the liar and crook as President.

Johnson and Stein need to be shot for trying to ruin our country. That 10% will kill a good election.
