Clinton: He's a national security danger. Trump: No, she is
Sep 07 2016 by Desiree Burns
With just about two months left in the race for the White House, Donald Trump leads Hillary Clinton by two points in a CNN/ORC poll released today.
Trump leads Clinton among likely voters, 45 percent to 43 percent, but trails her among registered voters, 41 percent to 44 percent. Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson scored 7 percent of voters and the Green Party's Jill Stein had 2 percent, leaving them unlikely to appear with Trump and Clinton in the presidential debates beginning September 26.
The poll found Trump with a 20-point lead on Clinton among independent voters, 49%-29%.
Both third-party candidates, Johnson and Stein, don't appear to be gaining enough traction poll-wise in order to reach the 15 percent threshold to participate in the debates. A fifth of Clinton backers say they're not enthusiastic about voting at all.
Clinton, the Democrat, is campaigning in Florida in search of an advantage in the nation's largest swing state.
Clinton now has a roughly 2.4-point lead in the RealClearPolitics average of recent national polls in a four-way race, down from 7 points at the beginning of August.

For that to happen, however, Temer would have to be removed from office or resign, something he clearly has no intention of doing. Tens of thousands of individuals have taken to the roads in Brazil to demonstrate against the authorities.
As she broke down in a coughing fit during a Labour Day stump speech attacking the Republican candidate, she joked: "I've been talking so much".
She made an effort in her Tampa remarks to gain the support of so-called "millennials", voters born between 1980 and 2000, promising to fight for an economy that works for all Americans, not just for the ones on top, pushing for renewable and clean energy sources, including solar power, and making young people a part of that process.
And they found a big weakness in Trump's campaign - a low number of college-educated, white voters, especially women.
After eating a gyro at a diner in the Cleveland area, Trump rallied thousands of cheering supporters at a county fair in Canfield, and Clinton visited a brewery in Cleveland. The CNN poll says that 50 percent of voters say he is more trustworthy compared to the 35 percent of voters who say Clinton is more trustworthy.
On the quality of honesty, Clinton's backers express greater skepticism about their candidate than do Trump supporters. However, the poll showed Pence's unfavorables 3 percentage points higher than Kaine's. The emails, later revealed by WikiLeaks, showed some DNC officials favouring Clinton over her primary opponent, Bernie Sanders - who has since endorsed Clinton for president. Of them, 1,237 identified themselves as likely voters.
"They know they can count on me to be the kind of commander in chief who will protect our country and our troops, and they know they cannot count on Donald Trump", Clinton said en route to Florida.
