This Chart Shows Just How Stable the Clinton vs Trump Race Really Is

Polls driving you crazy? I hear ya. Every day's a new rollercoaster and we still have six more weeks of this! My underlying advice, as always, is to keep calm and Hillary on.

What's want more? Okay! Check out this Clinton vs Trump head-to-head chart from YouGov's Will Jordan that was posted along with this tweet:

As you can see, the closest it got was in July, particularly in the wake of the Republican convention. Then there was a nice surge for Clinton immediately after her convention that eventually drifted down a bit over the course of August. However, things have been pretty darn stable since the beginning of September. That is, a Hillary lead of around three or four points.

What makes this chart particularly helpful is that it shows when the polls were in the field rather than when they were released. Assuming it's updated in the coming weeks, I'll be featuring it in future installments of Hillary HQ's "State of the Race" series.

  1. Trump invited Flowers to the debate, thinking that will throw Hillary off her game?

    If he met with Fran├žois Hollande, would he throw him off his game by showing up with Anne Fulde?

    If he met with Putin would he throw him off his game by showing up with Mick Jagger?

    Is this some kind of real estate technique?
