Breaking! 2016 Election Coverage
Over the last couple of weeks, Donald Trump's poll numbers have improved dramatically. For instance, in the latest real clear politics average, which is a combination of national polls and thus represents a good sample, Trump was only behind Clinton by 5.5 points, quite a change from a couple of weeks ago when he was behind her by almost double digits! While there are certainly several factors which have led to this improvement, the most influential is the change in his campaign team and the introduction of his new advisor. Since then, he has delivered several speeches in which he was on topic and focused, which has correlated with this increase in polling. Only time will tell whether or not Trump can remain on message and if this trend will continue.
