The recent polls released by Reuters/ipsos puts both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton at an almost level fight for the presidential race.

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.
