The tables have turned in this week’s White House Watch as Donald Trump now has a four-point lead over Hillary Clinton.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey of Likely U.S. Voters finds Mr. Trump with 43% of the vote, while Clinton earns 39%.
This is Donald Trump’s highest level of support in Rasmussen Reports’ matchups with Clinton since last October.
Mr. Trump now earns 75% support among his fellow Republicans and picks up 14% of the Democratic vote. Seventy-six percent (76%) of Democrats like Clinton, as do 10% of GOP voters.
On Tuesday, Mr. Trump made a major speech that even the New York Times characterized as “perhaps the most forceful case he has made for the crux of his candidacy …. that the days of globalism have passed and that a new approach is necessary.”
Some speculate that last week’s vote in Great Britain and the latest terrorist carnage in Turkey signal a rise of economic nationalism that is good for Mr. Trump.
Mr. Trump now holds a 14-point lead among men, while Clinton leads by six among women. The candidates are tied among those under 40, while Mr. Trump leads among older voters.
Clinton continues to hold a wide lead among blacks. Mr. Trump leads among whites and other minority voters.
