A major national pollster, which was typically very favorable to Donald Trump during the GOP primary season, the same pollster that on May 11 had Hillary Clinton with only a one-point lead (41-40 percent), now shows the bloviating billionaire and reality TV actor crashing to his lowest level yet.
The new Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Friday shows scandal-plagued Hillary Clinton defeating Donald Trump by a whopping 14-point margin, 47 percent to just 33 percent, while 20 percent said that they wouldn’t support either of the highly unpopular candidates, two candidates who have the highest unfavorability ratings in the history of polling.
Trump’s free-fall, along with his unstable mental status and fluctuating policies, has united both establishment Republicans as well as some principled Tea Party constitutionalists. Both feel that the liberal New York real estate tycoon will irreparably harm to both the Republican Party and the nation.
Two major groups, Free the Delegates, and Delegates Unbound, contend that delegates are unbound and are free to vote their conscience. They are encouraging delegates to exercise that right and responsibility to dump Trump at the upcoming Republican Party Convention in July.
A 14-point deficit in a poll that has a three-percent margin of error is a massive gap to close in any election. It shows just how weak a candidate Donald Trump is when you consider he’s running against the worse Democrat candidate to come along in a generation, one that should be easy to defeat.
