Trump Extends Lead To 7 Points As Hillary's Convention-Bounce Evaporates

Tyler Durden's picture

After a brief bump on Monday (if you look carefully you can see it), it appears Hillary Clinton's Convention bounce is dead. Reuters aggregate polling shows Donald Trump has taken his largest lead yet over Hillary Clinton.


But according USC/LA Times latest poll shows, Trump's lead over Clinton is now at almost 7 points (40.4% Clinton, 47% Trump). This chart tracks our best estimate, over time, of how America plans to vote in November...

The 2016 USC Dornsife / LA Times Presidential Election Poll represents a pioneering approach to tracking changes in Americans' opinions throughout a campaign for the White House. Around 3000 respondents in our representative panel are asked questions on a regular basis on what they care about most in the election, and on their attitudes toward their preferred candidates. The "Daybreak poll" is updated just after midnight every day of the week.

It appears Bill's speech didn't persuade anyone.

Sanders loyalists bash Clinton nomination, clash with police

The crowd consisted of an assortment of protesters espousing a variety of causes, but mostly Sanders supporters and other Clinton foes on the left. College student Cory James said he expects the Democratic Party to split over the nomination.

"He persuaded no one to vote for Hillary," said Greg Gregg, a retired nurse from Salem, Oregon, who intends to cast his ballot in November for Green Party candidate Jill Stein.

The longstanding bitterness between Sanders' supporters and Clinton's seemed to grow worse over the past few days after a trove of hacked emails showed that officials at the Democratic National Committee played favorites during the primaries and worked to undermine Sanders' campaign.

Black Men for Bernie founder Bruce Carter said Monday's speeches from Sanders and Massachusetts U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren didn't persuade him to support Clinton.

"They really agitate people more every time they stand up and do the Hillary Clinton hoo-rah hoo-rah," he said.

Carter, a Dallas resident, said he doesn't fear a Republican Donald Trump presidency.

No bounce from the speech by an empeached serial rapist and chinese tool?  Dang.  Progressives got the back up against the wall.

You know what? This mouthy fucker with the sunbed tan and the comb-over just might secure the POTUS.

Maybe The Simpsons were right... again!!

If nothing else... the fella will certainly put the wind up the establishment.

But he's just as likely to be assassinated and used as the fall-guy for Armageddon.

AGREED, I just had mine manipulated lastnight.. very manipulated.

Agreed. SHitlery is such an apalling candidate that she Will be crushed in november. Trump will win by a landslide similar to 1932-36, 1964, 1972 or 1984.

She already has 90%+ of the black vote, yet the DNC insists on a cuntinued pandering to them. That and marching out the police-hating thug mommas. 

As far as the polls go cuntsidering the above DNC lineup, I believe the term is "No Shit Sherlock".

Yes.  Seems odd, no, that the parties (both of the one) pander to the very same narrow interests when broadening such would produce otherwise make unicorns sing 2 octaves higher than a nightingale with a smokers and whiskey rasp.
It would not in any way divert the interests of the Elite.
That takes something else ....  But interesting that they really don't even make a false appearance to give a fuck anymore.

As I pointed out late Monday night, the DNC opening night consisted of Blacks, Latinos, Jews and one lesbian.

Last night I saw way more Blacks than Latinos, and there are more Latinos in the US than Blacks (as far as I know). The little girl they paraded out, was an Anchor Baby. Her mother was an Illegal. So now they glorify law-breakers?  Wow.

As this thing progresses, I see little that would make Middle America relate to what's going on.

In Bill's speech last night, my wife thought that he was listing a lot of "do-good" things that Hillary was doing in other countries -- which is difficult to disprove, if she's acting like a resume-building person. On domestic issues, she seemed involved with liberal issues that were driven by Jewish lobbyists or Congressmen.

I guess this was all intended to present her as some kind of a Little People's Champion, a Champion for the Outsiders. What a joke.

And the Propaganda ploy at the end, where they showed all the US Presidents, and their images shattering in glass, before they ended with her image via a live satellite feed. Not sure that this metaphor resonates with Middle America. It sure does not with me.

Thanks for the detailed observations. I hope you're right! (I can't watch.)

No such thing as "Middle America" - you're either American or something else.

Past time Americans woke up to reality and dumped their idealism - either that or get ready to collapse as a state - their choice I suppose.

Why didn't they parade the fathers of thugs "murdered" by cops on the DNC stage?
Oh wait, never mind!

@ Kilguy,

Agreed. You'd have to be Brain dead to believe a Reuters / Rothschild poll.

@ Son of Loki: 


Just like the Trump supporters, the Bernie-or-Bust crowd is FED-UP with "the same old shit that didn't work last time". 

They don't want a Clinton Presidency, especially not "Hillary-Shill-ery-give-her-the-Pillory"

Thank you, I should work on it some more...might have a good Brothers' Grimm/Hans Christian Anderson thing goin' there.

Funny how they embrace tinfoil hat theories when it suits their needs.  Mention Building 7 & 9/11?  YOU'RE A FUCKING RETARD!

But Hillary's trailing the Don?  RUSSIANS!  RUSSIANS!  RUSSIANS!

The deal was that if his mom didn't want him, he'd go live with Obama's mom in the White House.
Kinda like a half-way recovery house.
And God knows the recovery needed!

Yes it is time America to wake up to the stark reality we need to change course and right now!!!

I am expecting an awful, confidence shaking market in August .... This is the year of the Shmita: Blood Moons and Economic Collapse

We are going to need the Lord's wisdon given to both Donald Trump and Mike Pence (A Christian) to lead us out the dire situation that lies before all of us in the not to distant future.

It changed. Used to be more subtle, you couldn't decide if it was sarc or not.

Now its clearly sarc, and darker.

Not sure its the same MDB.

CEO of Kadmon, today pitching his team ......the concerns he gets from investors during his most recent "Road Show" blah blah blah.... 

This is what American industry has become, pitchmen in a game of chance, a facade, an illusion, dependent on a constant flow if new "investors" - gamers, rather then then the product they sell, allegedly at a profit.

It's disgusting to see, the top dogs of American Industry, groveling for scraps on Wall Street, to survive!


Trump is just tapping into the reality of our situation...

WTF?  Hillary's convention bounce?  Her convention is just beginning.  Trumpbots.  He is ahead in a couple of polls in the margine expected for HIS post convention bounce.  Hitlery will regain the lead next week and keep it through Novembre, count on it.
