Narrative Update: It’s Basically Tied, Folks


Let’s take a look at all the national polls that have been conducted since last Monday, August 28th, which include Gary Johnson, who will be on the ballot in all 50 states.


What happens when we average all of these polls together?

  • Hillary Clinton: 41.33 percent
  • Donald Trump: 40.17 percent

That’s a one point lead. Trump has officially closed the gap from the end of July, when he was supposedly down double digits. We are starting to see state polls tighten as well, especially in critical battleground states like Iowa and Virginia.

This race is virtually tied, and momentum is on Trump’s side. Lock in your 3 to 1 bets — what a value! — on Trump in while you can.
