Hillary Clinton’s been on a giant polling tear of late, putting up dozens of wins in the polls over Donald Trump. But last week’s Rasmussen poll was a rare bright spot for Trump, giving him a four point lead.
But Rasmussen’s out again. Did he keep the lead?

The answer turns out to be yes, mostly. Trump’s Rasmussen lead was cut in half, from last week’s four points to a mere two now. Clinton 40, Trump 42 is the result.
Gary Johnson pulls 9% in a four-way poll, but he did not change the head-to-head lead. Americans sick of Trump and Clinton have looked around. Those who like Gary Johnson are heading his way, but many still don’t like any of their options.
Trump needs more than one pet pollster if he wants a comeback though. Reuters/Ipsos this week had Clinton up by double figures. He’s got to start convincing Americans he can unite, not divide along tribal lines.
