Donald Trump takes lead over Hillary Clinton

According to Rasmussen Reports’ White House Watch survey, Trump has earned the trust of 42% of the U.S. voters, versus Clinton scoring 37%

The survey, with a sampling error of +/- 3 percentage points and a 95% level of confidence, was conducted on 1,000 likely voters on May 17-18, 2016.

Rasmussen Reports’ latest national telephone survey has asked people who they would give their vote to if the elections in the U.S. were held today. The answers were surprising: 42% of the U.S. voters would choose Trump over Clinton (37%), 13% prefer other candidate and 7% have not decided yet.

When it comes to party votes, Trump benefits 76% of the Republicans, while Clinton has 72% of the Democratic party support.

People under 40 favor Clinton, while Trump has a significant advantage among male voters. Other minority voters are divided between the two candidates with little difference rate.

Starting today until Election Day on 8th of November, the Rasmussen Reports will continuously monitor and update the Clinton-Trump White House Watch situation every Thursday morning.
