Texas poll: Donald Trump leads Hillary Clinton by 7
Sep 17 2016 by Larry Hoffman
The Clinton campaign released a two-page letter from Clinton's doctor Wednesday detailing her recent illness.
Trump's letter said the Republican is 6-foot-3 and 236 pounds - giving him a body mass index falling into the "overweight" range.
Thirty nine percent of likely voters rated Donald Trump "honest and trustworthy", while 33 percent of likely voters believe those terms apply to Hillary Clinton.
Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and Republican rival Donald Trump are technically even at the national level, only two months ahead of the presidential elections next November 8th, a poll published today revealed.
Julia strengthens again into tropical storm
As for Tropical Depression Julia , it will continue to linger off the coastline of SC , mainly near Charleston and Hilton Head. Forecasters are also keeping a close watch on a tropical wave that is expected to move off Africa's coast sometime on Friday.
In a not-so-subtle slap at Clinton, the Trump campaign said the medical report showed Trump "has the stamina to endure - uninterrupted - the rigors of a punishing and unprecedented presidential campaign and, more importantly, the singularly demanding job of president of the United States".
In a taped radio interview, Clinton told the Tom Joyner Morning Show that she was feeling much better and was "really glad that I did finally follow my doctor's orders and take some days to rest instead of just trying to keep powering through, which I think is a common experience for people".
Clinton's speech in Greensboro, North Carolina, on Thursday was to focus on how she plans to make sure "every child has the chance to live up to their God-given potential", Palmieri said. Forty percent of likely voters favor the former Secretary of State compared to 37 percent who back the NY businessman. Clinton continues to be dragged down by voters' mistrust in her, but she still maintains more pathways than Trump to the 270 electoral college votes needed to win the White House.
Jennifer Palmieri, Clinton's communications director, said the candidate's break from the campaign trail helped her "sharpen the final argument she will present to voters in these closing weeks". She found that Clinton was "re-hydrating and recovering nicely".
Among likely voters, 54 percent said Clinton had the "right kind of temperament and personality to be a good president", compared to 34 percent who said that about Trump.
She takes thyroid and allergy medicines and the blood thinner Coumadin, prescribed as a preventative after she suffered a blood clot resulting from a 2012 concussion. She was then prescribed a 10-day course of the antibiotic Levaquin and rest. "I've said it from the very beginning whether I was up, down, it didn't matter", Clinton said.
