Everyone’s going nuts over Trump ‘shock’ poll, but what should have Dems really scared is in the details

A poll showing Trump gaining on Hillary is sending shockwaves through Democrat circles and the mainstream media.

The LA Times new findings, has Hillary Clinton in squeaky tight lead over contender Donald Trump, in a 44 percent to 43.4 percent match-up.

White middle-class voters may be the core supporters of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, but a recent survey shows an uptick in support from black voters.

The USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times “Daybreak” poll of about 3,000 eligible voters shows 14.6 percent of black voters surveyed are leaning toward Trump.

It’s a daily survey that contacts about 400 voters each day to find out their presidential preference. Number crunchers update the data “based on the weighted average of poll responses over the previous week,”the LATimes said.

The uptick for Trump among black voters appears between Wednesday and Thursday, directly following the presidential hopeful’s appeal to that particular demographic. It’s hard to say if his unprecedented speech Tuesday had anything to do with the change, but according to earlier reports from BPR, it certainly didn’t hurt.

The same graphic shows support among black voters for Democrat Hillary Clinton dropping, though she still garners 79.7 percent support among African-American voters who participated in the survey.

Overall, the race is a statistical dead heat, with the 0.6 percentage point difference within the poll’s margin of error.

Trump is leading in two of three age categories — 35-64 and 65-plus — while Clinton leads the 18- to 34-year-old voting bloc.
