The latest Rasmussen survey of 1,000 likely voters finds that billionaire Donald Trump has erased a 5 point deficit from last week and now leads pro-abortion Hillary Clinton, 43% to 39%. Fox News, however, shows Clinton up by 6, illustrating the fluidity of surveys taken months before the November election.

The survey was taken June 28-29.

“This is Trump’s highest level of support in Rasmussen Reports’ matchups with Clinton since last October,” explained the analysis released this morning. “His support has been hovering around the 40% mark since April, but it remains to be seen whether he’s just having a good week or this actually represents a real move forward among voters.”

According to the report, Trump is attracting the support of 75% of Republicans while Clinton garners 76% of Democrats.

Trump how holds a 14-point lead among men, while Clinton leads by six among women. The candidates are tied among those under 40, while Trump leads among older voters.

Clinton continues to hold a wide lead among blacks. Trump leads among whites. ….

Among voters not affiliated with either major party, Trump leads by 18 points, but 28% of these voters like some other candidates or are undecided.

Meanwhile Fox News survey of 1,017 registered voters finds the former Secretary of State up 44% to 38%. She is up 41% to 36% when Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson is added. Johnson receives 10%.

In the matchup, Clinton is the choice among blacks (87-3 percent), women (51-32 percent), voters under age 45 (45-35 percent), and those earning less than $50,000 annually (52-30 percent),”according to Dana Blanton.

“Trump leads among white evangelical Christians (66-18 percent), whites without a college degree (51-33 percent), gun owners (52-30 percent), whites (48-34 percent), men (46-36 percent), and independents (39-31 percent). ”

As NRL News Today reported Wednesday, a new national poll conducted by Quinnipiac University found that Clinton’s 4 point lead over Trump (as of June 1) had dropped to 2 points.

Quinnipiac’s breakdown of 1,610 registered voters shows much more support for Clinton among women and younger voters:

Women back Clinton 50-33 percent while men back Trump 47-34 percent.

White voters back Trump 47-34 percent. Black voters back Clinton 91-1 percent and Hispanic voters back her 50-33 percent. Voters 18 to 34 years old go Democratic 48-23 percent, while voters over 65 years old go Republican 51-35 percent.

Democrats go to Clinton 89-3 percent, as Republicans go to Trump 84-6 percent. Independent voters are divided with 36 percent for Trump and 34 percent for Clinton.
