‘You’re right, Trump was right’: A new study finds he was right

“It’s hard to argue with the results of the Trump poll.

But it is a very clear signal that he was wrong.

That the president is so much more comfortable than the polls indicate,” said Robert Rector, a former director of the Pew Research Center.

“I would call that an electoral disaster.”

The Gallup poll, which was conducted Aug. 14-16, had Trump leading Democrat Hillary Clinton 47 percent to 37 percent.

The Washington Post/ABC News poll, conducted Aug 18-19, had Clinton leading Trump 47 percent and Republican nominee Donald Trump 46 percent.

In the new poll, the margin of error was plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.
