Trump Tops Clinton In New Poll

Posted: May 02, 2016 11:15 AM

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of likely U.S. voters finds Donald Trump with 41 percent ahead of Hillary Clinton’s 39 percent. Fifteen percent prefer some other candidate, and five percent are undecided.

Among voters not affiliated with either major party, Trump leads 37 percent to 31 percent.  

The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on April 27-28 with a margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence.  The poll also found that 89 percent of Republicans see Trump as the presumptive nominee.

Expect to see more polls change over the next few weeks as the presidential campaign 'resets' and transitions from primary to general election mode.
