Speaking in Canton, Ohio, Sept. 14, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump joked that the rally venue felt warm, and added that he didn’t think his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton could stand at the podium “for an hour and do this.” (The Washington Post)
Something very interesting has happened over the past two weeks in the presidential campaign: Donald Trump has seized the momentum from Hillary Clinton and is climbing back into contention in both national and key swing state polling.
New polls released over the past 24 hours confirm this momentum. In Ohio, Trump leads Clinton by five points in a new Bloomberg Politics poll and a similar five in a CNN poll. In Florida, Trump has a three-point lead on Clinton. In Nevada, Trump has a two-point edge, according to a Monmouth University survey. And in the latest weekly tracking poll from NBC and Survey Monkey, Clinton’s national lead has shrunk to just four points. In the RealClearPolitics polling average of all national surveys, Clinton’s lead has shrunk to two points over Trump.
