The RNC and DNC couldn’t be any more different.
We’re only on the second day of the DNC, but it’s pretty obvious that it won’t be going as smoothly as the RNC. While participants at the RNC rallied behind Donald Trump for the most part, the DNC couldn’t be any more fractured.
Turn on the TV and you’ll see countless signs from Bernie Supports – and the “Bernie or Bust” crowd is filled with many more diehards than the “Never Trump” crowd. The DNC email hack has proven that the Democrat establishment conspired against Bernie, and the Party isn’t going to regain their trust anytime soon.
Trump is seeing a post-convention boost, while Hillary will likely see the opposite.
The bounce is back.
Donald Trump comes out of his convention ahead of Hillary Clinton in the race for the White House, topping her 44% to 39% in a four-way matchup including Gary Johnson (9%) and Jill Stein (3%) and by three points in a two-way head-to-head, 48% to 45%. That latter finding represents a 6-point convention bounce for Trump, which are traditionally measured in two-way matchups.There hasn’t been a significant post-convention bounce in CNN’s polling since 2000. That year Al Gore and George W. Bush both boosted their numbers by an identical 8 points post-convention before ultimately battling all the way to the Supreme Court.he new findings mark Trump’s best showing in a CNN/ORC Poll against Clinton since September 2015. Trump’s new edge rests largely on increased support among independents, 43% of whom said that Trump’s convention in Cleveland left them more likely to back him, while 41% were dissuaded. Pre-convention, independents split 34% Clinton to 31% Trump, with sizable numbers behind Johnson (22%) and Stein (10%). Now, 46% say they back Trump, 28% Clinton, 15% Johnson and 4% Stein.
No one predicted Donald Trump winning the Republican Primary – and look what happened. Now, people still can’t imagine Donald Trump winning the general election, but come November, they’ll be in for one hell of a surprise.
