Forget about it.
The network news division headed by Clinton campaign spokesman George Stephanopoulos (he never stopped cheerleading) says the lead dropped four points overnight.
ABC's triple-the-margin-of-error lead for the wife of Stephanopoulos's boss contradicted the virtual tie shown in polls by Rasmussen, Investors Business Daily, and the Los Angeles Times.
On Tuesday, ABC reported:
Voter preferences in the latest tracking poll, based on a four-day survey through Sunday night, remain the same as in a three-day result reported Sunday: 50 percent support Clinton, and 38 percent Trump, with 5 percent for Gary Johnson and 2 percent for Jill Stein.
Clinton's 12-point margin over Trump holds at 53 to 41 percent in a two-way match-up, indicating that Johnson and Stein aren't drawing disproportionately from either of the two major-party candidates.
Other results also hold in a Clinton-Trump pairing, including for the important element of turnout. Republicans are less likely now than earlier in the campaign to indicate that they intend to vote.
Clinton leads by 19 points in turnout among women, while she and Trump are virtually tied among men, reflecting worse results for Trump among all but his core supporters, white men who lack a college degree.It's over. Don't bother voting. The people with college degrees have spoken. They are smarter than Trump supporters.
No news story. Just a line at real Clear Politics: Clinton 51, Trump 43. She lost two points overnight. He gained two.
In four-way polling, it is Clinton 49, Trump 40. She lost one, he lost two.
In one day.
But Trump supporters do not understand. This is science because it has numbers and has a margin of error. You need a college degree in womyn's studies to understand.
Of course, the press is always right, which is why I wrote "Trump the Press," a fun romp through the Republican nomination that uses the deadliest weapon to skewer the media experts: their own words. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
