Skip to comments.Trump Lead Widens To 2, T43 to C41, His Biggest Yet in IBD/TIPP Poll
Posted on 11/07/2016 2:49:20 AM PST by FlyingFish
With one day to go, Donald Trump extended his lead over Hillary Clinton, 43% to 41%, according to the latest IBD/TIPP presidential tracking poll. That comes after a third bombshell from FBI Director James Comey, who announced Sunday he would not indict Clinton for her email scandal.
Trump's two-point lead now matches his largest so far during the 20 days of polling.
Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson gets 6% of the vote, Green Party candidate Jill Stein just 2%.
In a two-way matchup that excludes the two third-party candidates, however, Clinton still holds a 43% to 42% lead over Trump, with 9% of those responding saying they were "unsure" for whom they would vote.
The unrounded poll numbers give Trump a 2.4 percentage point advantage over Clinton in the four-way race, 43.1% to 40.7%. Trump and Clinton had essentially been deadlocked for four days through Friday, but Trump moved into the lead Saturday and widened it on Sunday on a steady drumbeat of news surrounding Hillary Clinton's emails.
Also in the unrounded tally, Johnson now has 6.3% to Stein's 2.2%.
The poll of 1,026 likely voters reflects a weighted response of 319 Democrats, 322 Republicans and 314 Independent and "other" voters. It has a margin of error of +/-3.1 percentage points. The results are now based on the latest four days of polling.

Excellent news! We have the momentum no doubt about it. Now let’s see if we can overcome the lies and media deception and outright LBJ-style cheating.
Welcome news -thanks!
There is not way that Johnson is going to get 6%.
Looks like IBD finally has R:D turnout proportional rather than overweight too many Dems.
Very good news!!
Pray, folks, for the Creator to grant us mercy!
*caution* this is one of those rare polls that has SLIGHTLY more Republican voters than Demon Rat.
This video is long but very informative about what it means to lose religious liberty. One of the speakers is Ken Paxton.
3 more republicans?
Agreed. No way Johnson gets 6%. The 2 point Trump advantage will only widen once people are in the booth.
Yeah, I said it was slight. Probably more reflective of the actual turnout since Rs are jazzed. But it does make it different than other polls.
We aren’t in Kansas anymore! Melt the Witch!
Did Comey’s Sunday announcement do more to harm Hillary’s chances by demonstrating abject corruption in the face of everything we now know, pertaining to what was on Weiner’s laptop? When the FBI appears to be in bed with her, that’s absolute power.
IBD does like to tout that they have been the most accurate poll based on final vote tallies in the past several elections, nailing it in 2012. But there is no way the vote tally Tuesday is going to be 43 to 41. There is a lot of movement left, and that is likely to break in Trump’s (the challenger’s) favor. If Hillary is only polling 41, she is in big trouble. Why else is Obama going to MI today?
As far as I know, the Comey news did not break until later in the day yesterday, so unless they did their interviews last evening or later, it may not be reflected in this poll.
Of course, this assumes a fair election.
The democrats have made certain it will NOT be a fair election.
That’s a whole lot of indies.
No way the ‘L’ gets 6%.
