The presidential race between Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump will be decided in less than 48 hours, and the last polls for the season have been conducted. The results of those polls are mostly positive for Clinton, which is to be expected because she has always been the favorite. The Trump campaign has shrugged off this information by saying the methods used are biased towards Democrats.
The last presidential poll conducted by NBC News shows that Hillary Clinton is leading with 44 percent, compared to Donald Trump’s 40 percent. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson has 6 percent. Johnson has essentially dropped out of the race, and his supporters could turn in either direction. A four point lead is enough to surpass the poll’s margin of error, but barely. A four-point lead it also a far cry from Clinton’s 11 point lead which she held just a week prior, which shows this race is extremely volatile and anything can happen.
A poll by ABC shows that Clinton is defeating Trump by 5 points, but the information as to how this came out is rather interesting. 55 percent of Clinton’s supporters are voting for her because they actually like her, while only 43 percent of Trump’s supporters can say the same. Meanwhile, 51 percent of Trump’s supporters said they are voting for him not because they think he will be a great president, but merely because they oppose Clinton.
Furthermore, Politico’s poll gives Clinton a 3 point lead, which is exactly the margin of error. That means Politico’s poll could have the two statistically tied.
The difference will be made by the 9 percent of voters who say they are undecided and will make their decision on election say. As usual, the presidential race will come down to the independent vote.
