Trump Closing Gap On Clinton With Double-Digit Lead In Utah

Hillary Clinton's lead over Donald Trump is the lowest in two months as a number of the most recent polls show trump neck-and-neck with the establishment's mouthpiece-of-choice. From a Clinton lead of over 11pts in March, Rasmussen recently reported Trump leading 2pts, Gravis showed him lagging by just 2pts in the last two weeks, and NBC reports Clinton's lead dropping from 5pts to just 3 pts in the last week alone.

As RealClearPolitics shows, Clinton's lead is evaporating rapidly...


As The Hill reports, however, the nation remains extremely dvided...

The Democratic front-runner holds an overwhelming lead among black and Hispanic voters, while Trump is up among white voters by 14 points. She also leads him among female voters by 15 points, while Trump defeats her by 11 points among men.


The poll also found that Trump leads Clinton by 8 points among independent voters, 44 percent to 36 percent.

And, ironically given our earlier comments, Mitt Romney's 'safe space' Utah is now being dominated by Trump...

Voters in Utah appear to be warming rapidly to presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, according to a new poll that shows the billionaire 13 points ahead of his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton after tying with her just last month.


The latest Dan Jones & Associates survey of registered voters shows Trump leading Clinton 43-30 percent in the Beehive State, marking a 5-point increase since voters were last surveyed in early April. Twenty-six percent of respondents in the same survey remain undecided.


Trump, who suffered a landslide loss to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in Utah's Republican primary back in March, has also opened up an edge over Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.


"People's comfort level with Donald Trump will grow," ?Utah's Republican House Speaker Greg ?Hughes? told the Salt Lake Tribune. ?"He is the unconventional candidate. He's not the establishment's preferred choice. He'll have to earn people's support."


?Trump's steady rise in the largely Mormon state could be due, in part, to the recent endorsement of Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch. The state's senior Republican senator told reporters last week that he "totally" supported Trump after he and several GOP lawmakers met with their party's presumptive nominee on Capitol Hill.


"Now that Donald Trump is the presumptive nominee, I will do what I can to help him run a successful campaign," Hatch ?later ?said in the statement?.
