With several more months still remaining for the general election, much attention has been brought in straightway through the conjectural line-up of candidates. A competitive fight has already begun between the contestants Donald Trump, the Republican nominee and Hillary Clinton, the prime candidate for the Democratic front. An election tracking poll was conducted online from May 16 to May 22 by NBC News. As per the results, Hillary Clinton acquired a precise lead by 4 points. On the other hand, this week’s poll featured the preference of voters for each candidate. Previously, a large number of supporters of both the parties expressed negative views about each other’s candidates.
But the results of this recent poll had something else in the store. To the dismay, negative preferences were obtained for both Trump and Clinton. Amongst 10 voters, 6 disliked Clinton and 4 liked her. For Trump, the results were just the opposite. On analyzing the demographic profile of the voters, Harry Clinton gathered more support among the womenfolk. She managed to gather victory with a margin of 15 points. On the other hand, Trump fared well among the men with a 10 points margin. Black voters who prefer democratic front, support Hillary Clinton at a larger level. Hispanics also prefer Clinton over Trump.
However, the white voters prefer Trump over 14 points margin. Amidst their party supporters, both Clinton and Trump received a margin of 3 points. Amidst constant criticism by the media and politicians against Trump for his inadequacy in handling specific policy issues, his party supporters validate his choices and prefer him over Clinton. Trump’s choices have been propelling many of his supporters for casting their votes. More than a quarter of supporters praise the leadership abilities of Trump. A small group values him for his experience. Therefore, the results are indicative only of the current situation. Both candidates have to work even harder to win the hearts of the people.
