Donald Trump takes lead in USA presidential poll

A YouGov/Economist poll released Wednesday showed Clinton with a three-point lead, 46-43, over Trump nationally. While 53 percent of likely Trump voters said they are "very enthusiastic" about Trump, just 43 percent of Clinton voters said the same about thing her. Her campaign is underscoring that political reality with a stop in Arizona Wednesday, a state that has voted for Republican presidential candidates all but once since 1952.

Early voting numbers from key swing states and a state Clinton is hoping to flip to the blue column show that African Americans have not been voting early in the same numbers as they have in past elections.

More likely voters view Clinton as caring about them (47 percent) than say the same about Trump (37 percent).

"I would rather be here talking about almost anything else", Clinton said Tuesday during a rally in Florida where she leveled a series of attacks on Trump's character and preparedness for the White House.

Mr Trump said she should not become president as it would "create an unprecedented constitutional crisis", adding she was "likely to be under investigation for many years" and it was "likely to conclude in a criminal trial". The poll found Democratic support for Clinton remained steady, whereas Republican support for Trump increased.

Time to get serious, President Barack Obama told voters Thursday, denouncing Republican Donald Trump as a "con artist" and a threat to democracy as the race for the White House opened its do-or-die phase.

Clinton's weekend schedule underscored the Democrats' fresh anxiety.

He became the first player since legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar back in 1975 to score a triple-double that included 50 points . Conversely, Westbrook has 37.8 points , 10 assists and 10.8 rebounds and is soaring as the new leader of the Thunder.

In Nevada, Trump edged to a 0.5 percent lead after a Remington Research Group poll showed Trump leading with 48 percent of the vote to Clinton's 44.

Speaking to Now This News, Obama made his first public statements about the FBI's renewed focus on evidence possibly tied to Clinton's private State Department email server. A direct question related to Comey's disclosure of the email review showed that alone wasn't a factor in Clinton's eroding support, said Steve Mitchell, CEO of Mitchell Research & Communications, which conducted the poll for the television station.

The shift was due mostly to a rise among Clinton and a rise in the percentage saying "neither" was honest, according to the poll. The Democrats aired a series of attack ads that highlighted Trump's lewd comments about women. "Clearly Clinton's problems are now taking a toll on her candidacy in MI and the state is now in play". "They don't like either one of the politicians, and they're going to vote for the person who offends them less", Kolt said. For Trump, 60% said he is not trustworthy while 36% said he is.

Former President Bill Clinton made an unannounced appearance in Detroit Wednesday night to meet privately with black ministers, the city's mayor and other local leaders.

Trump's daughter Ivanka was campaigning in New Hampshire.

Former speaker of the House and Trump surrogate Newt Gingrich also dismissed the poll.
