from Bill Still
The USC Dornsife / LA Times Presidential daily tracking poll is out and although the rate of increase has reduced a bit, Donald Trump is still widened his lead during day 3 of the Democratic Convention.
Trump is now at 47.4% and Clinton is still declining at 40.1% – or a 7.3% lead for Trump. Both Trump and Clinton’s numbers are right on the edge of breaking out of the gray area – the 95% confidence area – which means the pollsters believe that should either Trump break above that gray area OR Clinton break below it, then the leading candidate will – with 95% confidence – be unstoppable.
That could easily happen tomorrow, however, if Hillary Clinton is ever to get a post-convention bounce, it has to come either with tomorrow’s report, or Saturday’s.
I’m still reporting from Washington. Good day.
