Polls Trump vs Clinton August 30 2016

Within the last week Republican nominee for President, Donald Trump has embarked on a strategy of attracting more ethnic minority support, mainly black voters, but is it a case of too little, too late?

Many commentators have long been waiting for Trump to pivot more to the center, in order to attract a greater share of independents and possibly disaffected Sander`s supporters. However no such pivot has really occurred until now.

Black people tend to vote overwhelmingly democrat and despite more attempts by the Republican party to reach out to this demographic over the last few years, hitherto nothing has been successful.

Trump`s main message to African Americans appears to be that he will lower crime within their communities and bring back jobs from other countries.

The current running average on RealClearPolitics shows that Hillary Clinton continues to hold a healthy lead over Donald Trump based on the last 6 reliable polls.

Hillary Clinton  48.3%
Donald Trump  42.3%
