Hillary Clinton’s campaign is in panic mode this week after a new Fox News poll put Donald Trump within just two points of the Democratic presidential nominee.
Western Journalism reported that the poll, which was released on Wednesday, has Clinton at 41% and Trump at 39%. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson is in third with 9% and Green Party candidate Jill Stein is in fourth with 4%.
In the head-to-head race, Clinton has a four point lead over Trump with 46% to his 42%.
This poll shows Trump has made massive progress, as a Fox poll from earlier in August showed that Clinton had a ten point lead over him. The poll had more bad news for Clinton when it revealed that 66% of Americans think it is likely that Bill and Hillary Clinton were selling influence to foreign contributors who were also donors to the Clinton Foundation.
Americans were given a newfound faith in Trump this week with his successful visit to Mexico.
“He’s going to secure our borders,” said Carol Morton, 64. “I also think he’s a really good man, he’s smart, and I think he’s going to turn the economy around.”
“I think Donald will find a way to have them pay,” she added, going on to say that she is a big fan of Trump’s immigration policy.
“He says he wants to close the border and build the wall and send the illegals back, particularly the criminals,” said Richard Kutzner of Casa Grande, Ariz. “When it comes to completely sending everybody back, that will be determined later. That would be a pretty impossible task, I would think.”
This came a week after Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus predicted that Trump was far from done as a presidential candidate.
“It’s going to be important for us and for Donald Trump to continue down this measured path that he’s on, and if he does that, I think he’s going to be tied or ahead at or just after Labor Day,” Priebus said.
