Dear Hillary: Here's Why You Aren't 50 Points Ahead

Tom Bevan, Real Clear Politics

Hillary's personal history and the cross-currents of this election in an evenly divided and highly partisan nation make it difficult for her to appeal to enough voters to lead her opponent by 10 points, let alone 50.

Trump up by 2 points in new national poll

Kyle Balluck, The Hill

Trump leads Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton by 2 points among likely voters, 45 to 43 percent, well within the margin of error in the CNN/ORC poll released Tuesday morning. Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson takes 7 percent while Green Party nominee Jill Stein has 2 percent. Clinton had an 8-point lead in the same poll in early August.
