Trouble in paradise? New poll has Hillary’s lead shrinking to single digits against Trump

There may be trouble in paradise for Hillary Clinton, according to a new poll out this week.

In a poll by USA Today/Suffolk University, Clinton’s lead over GOP nominee Donald Trump has shrunk to just five points. Clinton only now leads with 45.6 percent and Trump with 40.4 percent.

Just two months ago, Clinton lead Trump in the same poll by double digits, 50 to 39 percent, but that vast lead has quickly faded as Islamic terrorism and Clinton’s email scandal has come to the forefront of the political debate.

When libertarian candidate Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein are put into the mix, Clinton’s lead over Trump drops to just a four point difference. In that poll, Clinton holds 39 percent compared to Trump’s 35 percent.

Now, a Real Clear Politics polling average of a head-to-head matchup between Clinton and Trump have them only 4.5 points away from each other, with Clinton leading.

The bad news for Clinton comes just after a poll last week which showed her vulnerabilities with Democratic voters.

Among Democrats, a whopping 67 percent would prefer President Obama serve a third term than have Clinton for the next four years as president.

Only 28 percent of Democrats said they were looking forward to a Clinton presidency.
