Polls Trump vs Clinton August 20 2016

New polls out this week seem to indicate that Hillary Clinton is maintaining her lead over Donald Trump in the race for the White House. The last 6 polls all show Clinton leading by between 1-8 points resulting in a RealClearPolitics average of a 6 point lead for the former First Lady and Secretary of State.

RealClearPolitics Average (August 1-16)

Hillary Clinton  47.2%
Donald Trump  41.2%

Many Trump supporters have questioned the veracity of recent polls, claiming them to be biased in favor of the Democrats. Certainly in the Republican primaries there were many polling companies that vastly under represented Trump`s support so it would not be surprising if it is again the case.

The first Presidential debate will take place on September 26 and it likely to draw record numbers of viewers, eager to see the showdown between this year`s candidates.
