But if you take a closer look at the poll, what you will find is tha1t Democrats represent 53% of this particular poll and Republicans represent 40% of this polls. Independents represent 15% of the poll. What is seen clearly again is that Trump’s lead amongst Independents continues to remain huge at about 9% in the head-to-head and 7% in the 4-way which will be what is on the ballot. Is Clinton actually up 6% right now? It is actually highly doubtful considering how weighted the poll was. It is actually very likely that Trump has a slight edge if not a commanding lead as of the moment.
It is important to take into account how the party affiliates are weighted. Independents continue to remain under-represented in the polls.
