White House Watch: Trump Takes the Lead


The full results from Sunday night’s debate are in, and Donald Trump has come from behind to take the lead over Hillary Clinton, according to RASUMUSSEN REPORTS.

The latest Rasmussen Reports White House Watch national telephone and online survey shows Trump with 43% support among Likely U.S. Voters to Clinton’s 41%. Yesterday, Clinton still held a four-point 43% to 39% lead over Trump, but that was down from five points on Tuesday and her biggest lead ever of seven points on Monday.

Rasmussen Reports updates its White House Watch survey daily Monday through Friday at 8:30 am Eastern based on a three-day rolling average of 1,500 Likely U.S. Voters.

Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson has dropped slightly to six percent (6%) support, while Green Party candidate Jill Stein holds steady at two percent (2%). Four percent (4%) still like some other candidate in the race, and another four percent (4%) remain undecided.

Eighty-four percent (84%) now say they are certain how they will vote in this year’s presidential election, and among these voters, Trump posts a 49% to 46% lead over Clinton. Among voters who say they still could change their minds between now and Election Day, it’s Clinton 40%, Trump 37%, Johnson 19% and Stein four percent (4%).

The survey of 1,500 Likely Voters was conducted on October 10-12, 2016 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 2.5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Read more at RASUMUSSEN REPORTS.




  1. Matzav is not able to report the facts?
    There is a simple and kasher sight called real clear politics. They take ALL the polls and average them out. Not just cherry-picking the ones they want to see and believe. Take a look. Hilary up by over 6 points.
    I am really not able to understand Matzav’s obsession with Trump. You may not like Hilary, but to openly support a m’nuval is beneath the dignity of a Torah news source.

    • You sir certainly are very naarish to describe Trump as a menuval while closing your eyes on Hillary’s support of toeiva and her enabling her husband’s activities. You obviously don’t care about morality, so don’t pretend to be morally outraged with Trump.

  2. “i SAID THIS ALL ALONG. The left wing media’s polls are all distorted.”

    Rasmussen has generally been correct. The poll that Trump is leading is a new poll. See above.


    I find it reprehensible that words from our tefilot to Hashem are being used to describe the Menuval trump. See the picture above with Hebrew.

    • Michael, such selective moral outrage! So lets get it straight: Hillary being her husband’s assistant, Hillary pushing the militant toeiva agenda – that’s not menuval with you; Trump’s silly talk from a decade ago, the kind of immoral talk that the left constantly promotes by the way – you get all self righteous. Clearly, you are not concerned with morality, so don’t pretend to.

  3. Even though I would like to see Trump win, I didn’t see any Tefilos for Trump in my machzor.
    I didn’t see any Tefilos against Hillary or Obama either. But I did find one against the Secretary of State so I said that one.

    • You better get new machzor or daven again
      Everybody else has
      V’chol harish’a k’ashan tichleh

      but that probably includes Trump too

  4. My problem is with the Jews who desecrated our prayers for this menuval. I’m not talking about the menuval’s words or actions, nor that of the machasheifa.
