Roanoke College poll: Clinton’s big lead on Trump in Virginia, Virginia latest august opinion poll,US presidential elections 2016, Virginia , Hillary Clinton , Donald Trump

Hillary Clinton has a big lead over Donald Trump in Virginia, according to a new poll released Tuesday, which shows the Democratic nominee with a 16-point advantage in the state.

The Roanoke College poll found Clinton leading Trump 48% to 32% among likely Virginia voters in a four-way race. Libertarian Gary Johnson gets 8% support, while Green Party candidate Jill Stein is backed by 3%. In a two-way race, Clinton leads Trump 55% to 36%.

Roanoke College poll Aug. 7-17 (two-way race)
Clinton 55%
Trump 36%


That's in line with other recent polling of Virginia conducted over a similar time frame (August 7-17 for the Roanoke poll). A Quinnipiac poll taken within the same stretch found Clinton leading by 12 points, 50%-38%, while Washington Post poll showed Clinton up 51% to 43%.
Clinton performs better with her base than Trump in Virginia, as 91% of Democrats say they will vote for her, compared to 78% of Republicans who say they'll vote for Trump. Clinton's numbers have improved since May, while Trump's have declined over the same period. The former Secretary of State is winning Independents 43% to 25%.
Clinton has also seen her favorable rating increase, though she still remains underwater — 39% now say they have a favorable opinion of the Democratic nominee, and 45% say they view her unfavorably (up from 35%-50% in May). Trump, on the other hand, has seen his favorable rating remain at 23%, while the percentage of those saying they view him unfavorably grew from 56% in May to 63%.


Additionally, Clinton leads Trump on a range of top election issues according to the poll — likely Virginia voters give her the edge on the economy, terrorism, health care, and immigration, and she has nearly 40-point advantages on race relations and foreign policy.
The Roanoke poll also surveyed likely voters on Clinton's VP pick, Tim Kaine, who served as governor of Virginia before winning one of the state's U.S. Senate seats. Fifty-two percent said they had a favorable opinion of Kaine, up big from 32% in January — and well ahead of Trump's VP pick Mike Pence, who has a favorable rating of 24%, while 40% say they don't know enough to have an opinion.
The Roanoke College poll was conducted between August 7 and 17, and sampled 803 likely Virginia voters. It has a margin of error of 3.5 points.

Trade war between Ms.Hillary and Mr.Trump,US Presidential elections 2016, US Presidential polls, Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, trade war

Trade war between Ms.Hillary and Mr.Trump,US Presidential elections 2016, US Presidential polls, Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, trade war

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump announced a 7-point protectionist plan of action to “bring back jobs” to America, which his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton said was a copy of her plans.

The divide between Mr. Trump and Ms. Clinton on trade appears increasingly fuzzy.

Ms. Clinton sought to draw the line. “There’s a difference between getting tough on trade, and recklessly starting trade wars. The last time we opted for Trump-style isolationism, it made the Great Depression longer and more painful,” a release from by the Clinton campaign quoted her as saying. However, in a point-by-point response to the Trump plan, her campaign argued “they were ideas that seem to have moved straight from Hillary Clinton’s policy fact sheets to his teleprompter.”

Mr. Trump announced seven steps he would “pursue right away to bring back our jobs.” Under Mr. Trump, America will withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership and will appoint the “toughest and smartest trade negotiators.” As president, he would direct the secretary of commerce to identify “every violation of trade agreements “a foreign country is using to harm the American worker.” The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) will be renegotiated; China will be named a “currency manipulator;” the US Trade Representative (USTR) will bring cases against China in WTO and in the USA on subsidy issues. “If China does not stop its illegal activities, including its theft of American trade secrets, I will use every lawful presidential power to remedy trade disputes,” Mr. Trump said, promising “tariffs and taxes,” as punitive measures.

The Clinton response said all these — or similar — measures were promised by her earlier, and she would pursue them as president. The point of contention is who will do it more efficiently and honestly, and whose track record inspires more confidence.

The recent polls released by Reuters/ipsos puts both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton at an almost level fight for the presidential race. The poll result predicted 41% support for the Hillary and 40% for the Trump, while 19% remain undecided. The survey of 1,289 people was done over five days and has a credibility interval of 3 percentage points.

The results show a rise in the number of voters supporting Trump. An earlier poll conducted by Reuters/ipsos on May 4 had former secretary of state at 48% and the business-mogul at 35%. 

Donald trump has already become presumptive Republican nominee after the Texas Senator, Ted Cruz, opted out of the race. And Hillary Clinton is still fighting the Vermont Senator, Bernie Sanders for Democratic nomination. But it is more likely that Hillary would be the Democratic nominee as she is running well ahead. 

While much can change in six months before the Nov 8 elections still the increased support for Trump is a red flag for the Clinton’s campaign. 

However, Trump has his own problems ahead. Many of the Senior Republican leaders – including House of Representative speaker Paul Ryan – are withholding their support and Trump is struggling to bring them behind his campaign.

Looking at the voters of respective parties both Trump and Clinton are doing well, but independent voters continue to express uncertainty about who they will vote, with 38% in the Reuters/ipsos poll said they are unsure about whom they will vote or they will vote for someone else.

The primary season is near to end and both the likely party nominees have started to attack each other both on policy and personality. Recently, at a rally in New Jersey, Clinton took aim at Trump’s Tax reform plan.

“Trump – who has promised to make Mexico pay for a border wall to stop illegal immigration and called for a temporary ban on Muslims – could face an opposition among minorities”, said Political Science Professor Larry Sabato of University of Virginia. “This election would be determined as much by demographic composition of American electorate as anything else” he further added. 

Also the concern of Clinton has not ended as the recent loss in West Virginia Democratic primary has signaled a trouble for her in future. West Virginia has one of the highest unemployment rates in the country. About six in ten voters of West Virginia said they are worried about the direction of the US economy in the next few years, according to a recent preliminary ABC News exit poll.
