As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Trump, Clinton Even in Three Big Swing States

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are basically even in Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, three states that will help decide the election, according to Quinnipiac.

Interestingly, Sen. Bernie Sanders tends to do a bit better than Hillary against Trump.

The presidential matchups show:
Florida: Clinton at 43 percent, with 42 percent for Trump and Sanders at 44 percent to Trump’s 42 percent;
Ohio: Trump edges Clinton 43 – 39 percent, while Sanders gets 43 percent to Trump’s 41 percent;
Pennsylvania: Clinton at 43 percent to Trump’s 42 percent, while Sanders leads Trump 47 – 41 percent.

“Six months from Election Day, the presidential races between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in the three most crucial states, Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania, are too close to call,” said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac Poll. “At this juncture, Trump is doing better in Pennsylvania than the GOP nominees in 2008 and 2012. And the two candidates are about where their party predecessors were at this point in Ohio and Florida.”

Trump, with his populist message, probably pulls in a lot of Democrats. But like many who have been elected president, his greatest asset and good fortune may be the person selected to run against him.

  1. With each passing day I still get more worried that Hillary will not wind up being the nominee.
    She can be beaten handily.
    The waiting in the wings Biden/Warren ticket however is another story. A bad story. A nightmare in fact. A ………oh hell.

  2. This is nothing more than the media catching up to the public. For months the msm hammered us with Trump is Trash talk, he won’t be the nominee, he’s can’t do a thing, he isn’t worthy, Hillary will clobber him, but the idiots at the anchor desk never took into account what the actual VOTERS think – gee, there’s a unique thought. The voters are angry and they want to take away the loony bin from the liberals running it. It’s that simple. Trump WILL win.

  3. 50/50 now, don’t believe it. It’s more like 60/35 favor Trump.
    The only Unions that endorsed a candidate have gone for MrTrump. The AFL-CIO is strangely silent.
    We hear every day how many elected officials aren’t going to support MrTrump, but the Dems in Congress and the State houses are strangely silent about their endorsement of MrsClinton, too. Throw in the POTUS’s refusal to back the leading Dem candidate and it gets stranger
    still.
    There’s a reason why MrTrump was able to overcome 15 of the Repub’s finest, all the while some big money donors were throwing the kitchen sink at him.
    We like what he says, and believe his ego won’t allow him to renege on his word.

  4. Way too early for head2head polls for me. 6 months is a long time away yet and Trump has not yet begun to “beat Hillary like a baby seal” ;)

    Trump’s only gently poking her with her own hypocritical and pandering comments right now as she fund raises off his “meanie, poopie-headed” remarks.

  5. The two worst nominees in modern history, with the lowest approval ratings in their respective parties, and they are running neck and neck? Should we be surprised?

    Just heard a stunning report that Obama would beat Trump by 50 points. And no doubt he would beat Hillary again.

    In retrospect, JEB would have been the best bet. I know, I know. AT least I would have someone to support.

    • Reporting from another planet, Girly1 says MajicKneeGrow still the greatest thing since dirt.

      Sorry dear, the people dumm as they are have figured out that Majic’s policies have hurt them personally.
      Obammacare is the really terrible one that has hurt productive folks.
      The only ones left who like him are the FSA (free s&^T army)

      • Who said ‘The MagicKneeGrow is the greatest thing since dirt’? Your words, not mine!

        I merely mentioned that he was leading Trump by 50 points in one of the polls. Does’t mean ppl ‘love’ him’, Obama, that is.

  6. In the past, ppl listened to the media. At least back then media types acted like they were neutral. Today, the media tries to tell you who the best candidate is. Too many outlets for info these days for ppl not to make up their own minds. Trump is starting to roll, forget the landslide ppl are predicting against him.
