We have the first poll with Trump leading Clinton

A poll by Survey USA was released this weekend and it found.

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump leads Democrat Hillary Clinton head-to-head, according to a new poll released Friday. The poll by SurveyUSA finds that matched up directly, Trump garners 45 percent to Clinton’s 40 percent.

In other head-to-head matchups, Trump beats out Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) by 44 percent to 40 percent; Vice President Joe Biden by 44 percent to 42 percent; and former Vice President Al Gore by 44 percent to 41 percent.

This might well be an outlier, as the above tweet shows. I thought this polling might be a reaction Clinton’s recent problems, but he’s leading the other likely contenders. Trump is proving a breath of fresh air with the voters, will it last? But if this is the start of some consistent polling leads for Trump versus Clinton then those of us laying Trump might wish to reconsider. As ever we need more polling.

Labour electing Jeremy Corbyn as leader and Donald Trump becoming President of the United States of America is a sentence I never expected to type. Three months ago on the 6th of June Corbyn was 100/1 to be next Labour Leader and you could have gotten 150/1 on Trump being the next President. Now the best odds you can get are 2/7 and 9/1 respectively. Politics and betting therein is a funny old world at times.
