The North Carolina-based Civitas Institute released the findings of a nonpartisan poll on Wednesday that will be sure to anger the Democrat Party and their allies in the mainstream media.
Civitas conducted the poll August 7 and 8, surveying 400 registered, likely, and unaffiliated voters.
Their participants were asked:
If you had a chance to do it all over again, for whom would you vote for President between Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and Gary Johnson?
The poll found that 43% would vote for Donald Trump while Hillary Clinton only won 39%. Third party Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson won 9% while the other 9% refused to answer or were unsure.
This will come as a surprise to the Left and the mainstream media, which have been insisting that Trump is unpopular thanks to a variety of manufactured controversies like the Russia collusion conspiracy theory, his attacks on the press, and his perceived unpopularity.
Civitas President Col. Francis De Luca explained, “This result appears to illustrate two things: that Trump voters are sticking with him, and that elections are binary. Despite Donald Trump’s perceived unpopularity, when compared to another actual candidate, he remains ahead.”
The shocking thing is that unaffiliated voters tipped the scale in Trump’s favor. For weeks, the media has been parroting the Democrats' talking point that Trump’s base is weakening.
Instead, the opposite seems to be happening. His base only seems to grow stronger as the Left continues their relentless attacks on the Republican president.
Josh Kraushaar, politics editor at National Journal, pointed out on Twitter, “Trump won by 4 in 2016. 'Leading' by 4 now.”
