    Donald Trump has had a few rocky weeks on the campaign trail, and it shows in the latest Fox News Poll. Just over half of Republicans would rather have someone besides Trump as their nominee, and his support in the presidential ballot test has dropped seven points since May.

    Democrat Hillary Clinton is up 44-38 percent over Trump in a head-to-head matchup. Earlier this month, Clinton had a three-point edge (42-39 percent). In May, Trump was up by three (45-42 percent). Clinton’s current lead is just inside the poll’s margin of sampling error.

    The national poll, released Wednesday, finds she has a similar advantage when voters are asked about confidence in the candidates to make the “right” decisions for the country if they were president: 48 percent are at least somewhat confident Clinton would. It’s 42 percent for Trump.

    "The race is almost even among just those “extremely” or “very” interested in the election (45 Clinton to 43 Trump)."

    "Clinton is still dogged by low honesty numbers, as a record low 30 percent think she’s “honest and trustworthy,” and 58 percent describe her as “corrupt.”

    LOL! Those numbers add up to 88%. So where's the other 12% of "extremely interested" people?

    You'll have to ask the poster of the OP poll the same question. His source.

    Oh, I know. Didn't intend to direct my comment at you. I just found it funny that extremely interested people didn't get close to 100% participation.
