Remember: Trump support tumbles after convention: Gallup

In the wake of the Republican and Democratic national conventions, voters are more likely to support Hillary Clinton than Donald Trump, according to a Gallup poll released Monday Aug 1st

 While 36 percent of adults are more likely to support Trump coming out of the GOP’s four-day event, 51 percent are less likely to vote for the real estate mogul. The minus-15 net rating is the worst mark for the Republican nominee coming out of the party’s convention since Gallup began asking the question.

 Last month’s Republican convention  is the only time respondents were overall less likely to vote for the candidate who was nominated. Fifty-two percent of those surveyed said they have a less favorable view of the GOP now.

 Trump thanked “everyone for the wonderful reviews” of his speech and slammed Clinton’s “very long and very boring speech.” But Gallup’s results suggest the billionaire’s remarks were the worst-received in the past 20 years.

 Forty-four percent of respondents said Clinton’s speech accepting her historic nomination was excellent or good. Trump’s acceptance speech yielded similar results on opposite ends of the spectrum and 36 percent thought it was poor or terrible — the highest percentage since '96.

This is what was being reported the first week of August. Now

Quinnipiac University declared the race “too close to call” on Monday, as its latest national poll of likely voters found Mrs. Clinton edging Mr. Trump by a margin of 47 percent to 46 percent in a head-to-head match up.

 Priorities USA, the super PAC supporting Mrs. Clinton, unveiled a new 30-second ad calling for the “Trump Train” to be stopped in its tracks.

Remember: It's hard to stop a train!
