Most commentators agreed that despite a good start, Trump faded badly after about 30 minutes of the debate leading Clinton to emerge victorious. It is unclear if it will be enough for her to shake the businessman who had been closing the gap in recent weeks, especially in key swing states.

Presidential Polls Colorado September 2016 Trump vs Clinton

Colorado is considered one of the key swing states in this year`s presidential election. In 2008 Obama won the state with a 9 point margin, this was reduced to 5.4 points in 2012.

According to the RealClearPolitics running average, Clinton leads by 3.7%, this signals a reduction in her lead from prior weeks, largely due to an Emerson poll which showed Trump winning by 4 points.

As recently as the end of August this average showed Clinton up by more than 11 points, so there seems to be little doubt that the race is tightening here.

Despite the fact that both candidates have high unfavorable ratings with Hillary Clinton, representing the establishment, at a time when many people are disenfranchised with the political system. Donald Trump definitely does not represented the establishment, however, due to his controversial statements about illegal and muslim immigration, many people have branded him a "racist" and "dangerous".

The contrast in styles is evident, Donald Trump is unpredictable and a maverick, Hillary Clinton on the other hand is more controlled and takes less risks.

Poll Trump vs Clinton September 21 2016

It has hitherto without doubt been a very turbulent presidential campaign. Donald Trump led an insurgency in the republican party that shocked many of the pundits, winning the primaries against all the odds. On the democrat side there was also an insurgency in the form of Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders, a senator from Vermont, although this of course ultimately proved unsuccessful and Clinton triumphed.

So now it will be Trump vs Clinton and come November 8 one of them will be granted a mandate to govern the United States by the voters.

According to the running average on the site RealClearPolitics Clinton is currently leading her republican opponent by 1.3%

RealClearPolitics Average

Hillary Clinton   45.3%

Iowa Polls Trump vs Clinton September 2016

According to new polls Donald Trump is making serious inroads in Iowa, long considered one of the most volatile swing states in the country, Hillary Clinton boasted a lead of 5% here just a few months ago, however a new poll has the real estate mogul 8 points ahead.

Trump appears to be gaining great support among white voters in the state especially among the working class. Iowa is 92% white and many seem to have become disillusioned with the direction the country is taking and so have opted for a change. President Obama had 2 relatively comfortable wins here in 2008 and 2012 after 2 very close elections in 2000 and 2004.

There are a mere 6 electoral college votes available in the state, which would only make a difference in the case of a very tight race. Many commentators believe that winning here is much more important for Trump, as his path to victory is much more difficult than Clinton`s.

An explosion in Manhattan on Saturday evening has been called an "intentional act" by New York Mayor Joe di Blasio, however he said that there was yet no connection to terrorism. A total of 29 people were injured, 1 of them seriously.

Republican candidate Donald Trump as he began giving a speech at an event in Colorado said that "A bomb just went off in New York".

North Carolina is considered one of the battleground states for this election and it is not hard to see why. In 2008 President Obama triumphed in the state by a mere 0.3% and in 2012 Republican Romney won by just 2.0%.

Being such a tightly contested state it will come as no suprise that this time around the race is once again close, when the average of the latest polls are taken into account, it appears to almost be a tie in the state.

It has not been a good week for the Clinton campaign to say the least. After suffering from repeated coughing fits which were attributed to allergies, the former First Lady was seen practically collapsing as she left an event to honour the victims of 9/11.

Concerns over Clinton`s health had long been branded the stuff of ring wing conspiracy theorists, however following a video that was leaked of the Democratic candidate losing her ballance and having to be helped into a van has forced mainstream news outlets to admit that her health is a legimate campaign issue.

In addition to these setbacks, Trump also appears to be closing the gap in national polls, RealClearPolitics has her advantage down to just 1.5 points.

A new poll released by CBS News/New York Times shows Clinton on 46% with Trump on 44%.

In a four way race between Clinton, Trump, Gary Johnson and Jill Stein then Clinton and Trump are tied on 42% each among likely voters.

This new poll comes as the Clinton campaign has fallen into disarray after a video emerged on Sunday of the democratic candidate collapsing as she left the event for the ceremony to the victims of September 11.

The poll was undertaken between 9-13 September of 1,753 adults nationwide, including 1,433 registered voters with a margin of error of 3 percentage points.

Hillary Clinton Full Medical Records Photos

Hillary Clinton`s campaign has released new medical records in an apparent attempt to quell speculation over the Democratic Candidates Health. Her doctor said that she had been suffering from a mild and non-contagious form of pneumonia but is fit enough to serve as president of the United States.

In the statement is says that she was treated with an antibiotic called Levaquin, prescribed for a duration of 10 days. Clinton`s doctor stressed that she is "healthy and fit to serve as president of the United States. Adding that all her physical tests were "normal" and that she is in "excellent medical condition".

This information is unlikely to convince many people who believe that the former First Lady is suffering from a very serious illness.

Is Donald Trump Racist against Mexicans ?

Many people have accused Donald Trump of being a racist during this campaign cycle, due in large part to his comments about illegal immigration and muslims.

Upon launching his campaign at Trump Tower he said the following “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending the best. They’re not sending you, they’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bring crime. They’re rapists… And some, I assume, are good people.”

He also called for a "total shutdown of muslims entering the United States" something which provoced fury in many sections of the media.

Here are a few of his more controversial comments

The democratic candidate did not let up, saying “You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right?” she said to applause and laughter. “The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic — you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up".

Trump struck back in characteristic fashion, using his twitter to say the following “Wow, Hillary Clinton was SO INSULTING to my supporters, millions of amazing, hard working people. I think it will cost her at the polls!”

Clinton later offered an apology, saying that she was "grossly generalistic" and that is "never a good idea".

Hillary Clinton Possible Replacement September 2016

Following the Hillary Clinton health scare at the 9/11 memorial service many people are questioning if the former First Lady and Secretary of State is up to the job of being president of the United States, with some even suggesting that she may be replaced and that the democrats are lining up possible other candidates.

Sources cited by The Express Newspaper have claimed that democrats are meeting in secret in order to consider other options, should Clinton not be up to the job.

Following the release of footage of Clinton apparently not being able to stand and having to be helped into a van by secret service agents the MSM has been forced to admit that the state of Clinton`s health is no longer merely a conspiracy theory but rather a real concern.

Will Hilllary Clinton Drop out of the Race? September 2016

The shocking video of Hillary Clinton almost fainting as she left the 9/11 memorial sent the internet into meltdown on Sunday, with many taking to Twitter and Facebook to call into question whether or not the former First Lady is up to the job of being president of the United States.

Clinton left the event after reportedly feeling "unwell" and her campaign later said she had been "overheated", before her Doctor later stated that after suffering from allergies last week during an examination she had been diagnosed with Pneumonia and put on a course of antibiotics.

Donald Trump, who has repeatedly questioned the health and stamina of his opponent, has remained largely silent on the issue, while AP has reported that Clinton has canceled various events over the next two days.

Clinton is Winning September 2016

As the presidential campaign continues to progress towards it`s conclusion with voting that will take place on November 8, both sides are becoming increasingly desperate to sway undecided voters, especially in key swing states.

Donald Trump has recently begun to reach out to the African American community repeatedly saying "What do you have to lose?", referring to the high crime rates and economic depression within the inner cities.

Clinton then went on the counter attack, claiming that a certain proportion of Trump voters were "deplorables" and "racists, sexists, homophobes, islamophobes, you name it", although she later apologized for the remarks.

Added to this, are now legitimate concerns about the Democrat Candidate`s health, after having left the 9/11 memorial service after feeling "unwell", a video later released showed her barely able to stand and being helped into a waiting van by a number of secret service agents.

Build a wall on the southern border with Mexico

Trump has affirmed that if be becomes President of the United States he will build "A great wall" on the border with Mexico in order to stop the illegal movement of people and drugs.

Deport illegal immigrants

Trump`s policy has been to deport everybody who is illegally in the country, however, in a recent speech in Arizona he did seem to soften his stance somewhat, emphasizing that his priority would be to deport criminals illegal immigrants, who would be gone "in the first hour" of his presidency.

Bring back jobs from other countries

Trump plans to put pressure on other countries to renegotiate trade deals that he claims have hurt the United States. He wants to bring back manufacturing jobs from China and Mexico in order to strengthen the economy.

What is Donald Trumps Military Policy?

The Republican candidate has built his campaign in large part on security issues, affirming that he is the only one who can keep Americans safe from threats both external and internal.

Trump has railed against America`s Nato allies for not "paying their way" in the bloc, noting that only 5 countries spend the required 2% of GDP on defense. He insists that he will make countries like Germany and Japan "pay their fair share" in exchange for the continued protection of the United States.

He opposed the Iraq war and intervening to topple Bashar al Asaad in Syria but at the same time has repeatedly said he would "knock the hell out of ISIS".

The businessman has also frequently praised Vladimir Putin, saying recently that the current Russian leader is "Better than Obama". This has caused some to say that Putin and Trump have some kind of agreement, which Trump has vehemently denied.

Donald Trump is Winning September 2016

For the first time since July a poll has been published which shows Donald Trump leading Hillary Clinton, albeit by only 1 point.

According to the survey, which was conducted between August 26 and September 1 by Reuters ,Trump is at 40% compared to Clinton on 39%, whereas 20% didn`t wish to vote for either of the candidates. When asked to decide between 4 candidates, including Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson and Green Jill Stein, Trump and Clinton were tied on 39%.

To put this in comparison, one poll during August had Clinton 12% ahead, so Trump appears to be heading in the right direction and closing the gap.

Trump was leading for a brief period at the end of July after apparently benefiting from a "bounce" following the RNC in Cleveland, Ohio. However with the beginning of the DNC, Clinton swiftly retook the lead once more.

In the case of republican voters, 78% opted for Trump in the poll.

Hillary Clinton Insults Donald Trump Voters

Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton appears to be ratcheting up the campaign rhetoric in order to grab some of the publicity from controversial businessman turned Politician and republican candidate for president, Donald Trump.

She went on the attack on Saturday putting Donald Trump`s voters into what she branded two "grossly generalistic" categories. Those in the "basket of deplorables" and others who feel the government has let them down.

She continued her attack, claiming that half of Trump`s supporters are "racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic — you name it,"

The real estate mogul, who has used social media to great effect during the campaign swiftly went on the counter attack, putting out the following tweet.

"Wow, Hillary Clinton was SO INSULTING to my supporters, millions of amazing, hard working people. I think it will cost her at the Polls!"

How is Trump doing in the Polls September 2016

A quick glance at the polls over the course of the last few weeks would tend to indicate that Donald Trump is decidedly behind in the presidential race. However, during the last few days, as is usual at this stage of a race, the gap has closed significantly, leaving him a mere 1 or 2 points behind democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

RealClearPolitics Average

Hillary Clinton  45.6%
Donald Trump  42.9%

Many observers have noted that in past elections the candidate that was winning at this stage has gone on to lose the race. Whether that will be the case this time remains to be seen, but with these new polls showing a possible tight race, it is certainly far from over.

Poll Trump vs Clinton September 10 2016

It seems like an age ago that the presidential campaign began with both the Republican and Democrat primaries, however we are now approaching the end of this long process, just 2 months remain until voters go to the polls to decide who will become the most powerful human on earth.

It is safe to say that this has been one of the most polarizing campaigns in recent history, with both candidates having a very high disapproval rating. Trump having has a definite core number of supporters who are very enthusiastic, he has been able to fill stadiums full of 20-30 thousand supporters, whereas the support for Clinton has been more tepid, people mainly are supporting her due to their hatred for Trump.

With the battle lines drawn and the campaign reaching fever pitch, the polls appear to be tightening. Clinton had been leading by a significant margin for most of the last few months, but now polls appear to show her only 1-2% ahead of Trump.

Latest Polls show the race is tightening.

Usually at this stage in a presidential race, the numbers start to tighten, so it is to be expected that the race will end up being closer than some of the polls have suggested.

Although Clinton has been leading in most polls, some people have questioned the veracity of the methods used, as some samples have been +15 democrat, which gives a skewed vision of the support of both candidates they claim.

One of the vital aspects of this election campaign may well be the debates, with record numbers expected to tune in. The first debate will take place on September 26.

Vice Presidential Debate Pence vs Kaine Date and Time

In addition to three presidential debates that are scheduled to take place between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, there will also be a debate between the Vice presidential candidates, Mike Pence and Tim Kaine on Tuesday October 4 at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia.

The debate will be divided into nine 10 minute segments and thus will last a total of 90 minutes.

Each segment will begin with a question posed by the moderator and both candidates will have 2 minutes to respond and the rest of the 10 minute period will be used for a debate of the topic.

It will be the only debate between the vice presidential candidates this time round, so it will be the only chance for undecided voters to see if they are swayed by what they see.

Where Can I watch the Presidential Debate Trump vs Clinton ?

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are already preparing their strategies for the upcoming presidential debates. They are being seen as very important in this year`s race and due to Trump`s charisma and controversial nature are sure to attract huge numbers of viewers.

Trump had at first expressed doubt about whether or not he would participate in all 3 debates, citing the fact that some dates coincide with NFL games and then casting further doubt after criticizing some of the choices for moderators.

However he now affirmed his commitment to attend all three debates, saying to the press that only "Hurricanes and natural disasters" could change his mind.

The first debate will take place September 26 at Hofstra University in New York and will be moderated by Lester Holt from NBC.

Clinton has long since been leading in the polls, however recently it appears that Trump may be closing the gap somewhat, making the debates of utmost importance in the race to the White House.

Most recent polls have seen Hillary Clinton leading Donald Trump, in fact the RealClearPolitics Average shows Clinton leading by 3.3%, although just a few weeks ago he was down by about 6 points in this average, so he appears to be moving in the right direction.

RealClearPolitics Average (Last 9 polls conducted between August 25- September 5)

Usually this is the time when the race begins to get closer, so we could expect to see these numbers tightening in the next month or so, depending on what occurs within the campaign.

Percentage of Black Vote for Donald Trump

It is no secret that following the RNC Republican Candidate Donald Trump has been suffering in the polls, with the majority showing him various points adrift of Democrat Hillary Clinton.

The Republican candidate thus appears to be changing tactics and going after minority votes, especially in the African American demographic. It is without doubt a very difficult task according to Gallop Mitt Romney only gained 5% of the black vote compared to Barack Obama in 2012, in 2008 John Mccain only polled at 1% compared to 99% for Obama, whereas in 2004 George Bush did slightly better, gaining 7% in this Demographic.

According to some polls and news outlets Trump is polling between just 1-2% of the black voter, whereas others put him at as much as 8%. It is unclear if his recent outreach to the black community has shifted these numbers in any big way.

Video Donald Trump African American Church

Donald Trump has recently changed his tactics somewhat, specifically trying to attract more African Americans to vote for him in the upcoming election.

In recent decades African Americans have voted in overwhelming numbers for the democratic party, for example in the 2012 election 95% voted for Obama, compared to just 5% for Romney.

Trump received a warm welcome from within the church, however many others criticized the visit, a group of protestors gathered outside to oppose the republican candidates appearance in the area chanting slogans such as "No Trump, Go home Trump" while others carried signs that read "No white supremacy in the White House".

Many are attributing this to the so called "Ferguson effect" which suggests that due to increased scrutiny of the police following the 2014 shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, police have been more cautious to use force to deter crime, thus leading to an increase in the murder rate in certain areas.

Chicago has been in the news for a number of years due to its high murder and gun crime rates, however this had been slowly decreasing until the last few years. According to the Chicago Tribune, which catalogues shootings and murders in the city, last year there were a total of 490 homicides, however this year there have already been a total of 464, with 4 months still left, a substantial increase.

A total of 2,988 people were shot in the city last year compared to 2,808 so far this year. So far in August there have been 65 homicides (As of August 28). UPDATE : A total of 92 homicides were recorded in August, making it the most deadly month in 20 years in the city.
