Clinton opens up double-digit lead over Trump nationwide: Reuters/Ipsos poll

Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton has opened up a double-digit lead over Republican rival Donald Trump, regaining ground after the New York billionaire briefly tied her last month, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Friday.

Some 46 percent of likely voters said they supported Clinton, while 35 percent said they supported Trump, and another 19 percent said they would not support either, according to the survey of 1,421 people conducted between May 30 and June 3.

Trump had briefly tied Clinton in support among likely U.S. voters in May, raising expectations for a tight race between the two likely contenders in November’s presidential election.

Only 5 months and about 500 polls until the election.

        The Iraquis & all their allies including US air-power still seem to be getting nowhere at Fallujah – this’ll all play into Trump’s hands.

        Although its what pollsters were saying yesterday on MSNBC. I’m interested to see the trends in voter registration re 08 and 12 – particularly the ‘swing’ States.

        From your link.

        “In an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria on Sunday, Wall Street Journal deputy editorial page editor Bret Stephens says that he wants Donald Trump to be the “biggest loser in presidential history,” so that that his brand of “ethnic conservatism or populism is so decisively rebuked” that Republicans will “forever learn their lesson.”

        This guy is missing a very salient point. His wish may work in reverse. Trump loses the election, Mr Stephens and millions of other Americans cheer. But all Americans by then would have know Trumps policies and what he stood for. So when the next terrorist attack happens under Clintons watch. When Muslims and Mexicans continue flooding in. When Clinton refuses to open coal mines, and China and Russia give America the fingers, Americans will have something they haven’t had before:

        A YARDSTICK TO GAUGE WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN UNDER A PRESIDENT WHO OWES NOTHING TO WASHINGTON AND REFUSED TO COURT THE STATUS QUO. VERSUS A CAREER POLITICIAN WITH A CLOSET FULL OF SKELETONS AND A TONNE OF WET BUS TICKETS.

        I think Trump will ultimately come out the winner, win or lose.

      I have a feeling that’s going to be a damp squib. But I also think non-committed voters are going to end up thinking Hillers is just 🐱 y.

      How do you successfully manage a campaign against someone who’s succeeding so well at being both a fool and no fool at the same time?

        “so well at being both a fool and no fool at the same time?”
        Beautifully put (and very good ‘counsel’) G.
        Actually in an eminently more sophisticated and subtle way, worked very well for Boris Johnson at times also.

          The guts of Hillers’ attack campaign on The Trumpster yesterday was “this man is such an unstable egotist he can’t be allowed to have his finger on the nuclear trigger.” Let’s face it, China and Russia would never even think of launching theirs against the US or its allies.

          The only ones who are even at slight risk of doing that are Iran (haven’t got one), Israel (they could launch a neutron bomb against Iran, but it’s pretty unlikely) & Kim Jong Un of North Korea – who might be a fat-head but who certainly knows what the result would be.

          Trump’s actually probably the best one to have his finger on that trigger.

    In November it’ll be Hillary by a wide margin.

        Obama’s approval rating stands at 50%. Trump can’t win against those numbers.
