From a piece I have running today in LifeZette and on RealClearPolitics:
It looks grim for Donald Trump. So say the bellyachers in the Republican Party and the early celebrators in the Democratic Party — and the media.
He’s down 10 points in some polls! Somebody get Hillary a good real estate agent so she can rent out her Chappaqua digs!
Well, Hillary may be measuring the drapes in the Oval Office, but it’s hardly curtains for Donald Trump. For many reasons, Trump is in far better shape than he seems — and is actually in an excellent position to win.
The big, scary polls showing Clinton ahead by 10 or 12 points tend to get the most attention. But as of Friday, Clinton was ahead of Trump by only 6 points in the RealClearPolitics average of recent polls. When you factor in Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson, and Green Party candidate Jill Stein, Clinton is ahead of Trump by only 4.5 points.
Yes, all this drama for a 4.5-point lead in August.
Read the rest of the reasons Trump has a good chance of winning on LifeZette.
