Begrudging WaPo poll: Trump 46%, Clinton 44%


As I’ve said before Democrats are freaking out over polls showing Trump defeating Hillary. 
They’ve been so confident that Granny would wipe the floor with Trump, but polls showing otherwise give them a fright. 

Washington Examiner reports it's not the headline, and it takes 219 words to get there, but a new Washington Post poll on the presidential race reveals that Republican Donald Trump leads Democrat Hillary Clinton among registered voters 46 percent to 44 percent.

Inside the Post's story about the poll is this paragraph:

"At this point, the two candidates are in a statistical dead heat among registered voters, with Trump favored by 46 percent and Clinton favored by 44 percent. That represents an 11-point shift toward the presumptive Republican nominee since March. Among all adults, Clinton holds a six-point lead (48 percent to 42 percent), down from 18 points in March."
It is the first time Trump has vaulted over Clinton in the poll and shows the advancement of the New York businessman over the past six months.
