Trump up 2 points against Hillary, says most accurate poll in US Election history
The Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump leads rival Hillary Clinton by 2 percentage points in the election race, according to IBD/TIPP presidential tracking poll.
The latest IBD/TIPP poll, which claimed to be the most accurate poll in the last three presidential elections, revealed a much closer race than most other nationwide polls, saying Trump leads 43% to 41% in a four-way race this year.
According to the poll, Trump will get more votes from men, lower-income voters, rural voters and those who express a religion. On the other hand, Clinton does better with women, voters ages 18-44, the wealthy and investors.
The poll results also stated that Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson stood at 7%, while the Green Party’s Jill Stein gets the support of 3%.
Investor’s Business Daily said the poll results include responses from 783 likely voters, including 282 Democrats, 226 Republicans, and 259 Independents.
In addition to IBD/TIPP polls, Rasmussen poll also showed Trump moving ahead in a four-way contest by two points. Analysts have said the results of the IBD/TIPP poll are surprising, the Independent reported.
Many reports have earlier suggested Clinton is leading against Donald Trump with a double-digit advantage after number of sexual allegations damaged the Republican’s chances of winning the election.
The latest CBS poll stated that Democratic presidential nominee is holding a slight lead over Donald Trump as the preliminary numbers appear to reveal that Clinton face a tough competition from her rival in several of the roughly 10 battleground states.
Meanwhile, addressing a rally in St Augustine on Monday, Trump said: “Folks, we’re winning. We’re winning. We’re winning.”
“We are winning and the press is refusing to report it. Don’t let them fool you- get out and vote! #DrainTheSwamp on November 8th!,” he tweeted later.
