The new Quinnipiac University poll that just came out spells disaster for the Republican presidential nominee. Not only is Hillary Clinton leading Donald Trump by ten points, but the majority of pollers have made up their minds, and view Donald Trump as an unlikely candidate.
According the the Quinnipiac University Poll
‘In the battle of the unloved presidential candidates, Democrat Hillary Clinton tops the magical 50 percent mark among American likely voters, leading Republican Donald Trump 51 – 41 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University National poll released today.
When third party candidates are added to the mix, Clinton gets 45 percent with Trump at 38 percent, Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson at 10 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein at 4 percent, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds. This survey of likely voters can not be compared with results of earlier surveys of registered voters.
Women and non-white voters propel Clinton in the head-to-head matchup. Women back her 60 – 36 percent. Men back Trump 48 – 42 percent. White voters back Trump 52 – 41 percent. Non-white voters back Clinton 77 – 15 percent.’
When determining the reason behind pollers voting for Clinton over Trump, the majority of voters say they wont vote Trump because they simply do not like him.
Almost 90 percent of those polled have already decided on a candidate. Only 9 percent of respondents said that they are open to changing their minds. This means that even if Trump gets all undecided voters to support him, he would still be losing to Clinton.
The Quinnipiac University poll suggests that Trump has a very slim chance of winning the upcoming election; this means he likely reacted too late to his slide. Trump’s past attempts to turn his campaign around has failed, and he is left to wonder if changing his campaign manager and the “softening” of his immigration policy was a waste of time. Voters have already made up their minds and plan to vote for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
