ATLANTA — (CNN) The latest polls appears to favor the democratic presidential nominee as Clinton expands her lead ahead of Donald Trump and not just nationwide.
We’re nearly three months from election day and the democratic presidential nominee is now leading nationally and in key battleground states.
The latest ABC news, Washington Post poll shows Hillary Clinton with an eight-point lead over Donald Trump, doubling her lead from a month ago.
And the swing state polls also show Clinton ahead of Trump in some places by double digits.
New Hampshire and Pennsylvania has Clinton up by more than 10 points.
Clinton’s runningmate, senator Tim Kaine, attributes the favorable numbers to Clinton sharing her story about working with families and children early on in her career at the democratic national convention.
Sen. Tim Kaine says, “I think the reason we are doing better in polls since last week is folks are getting reintroduced to that story in a positive way.”
And it was also during the DNC when the parents of a muslim U.S. Soldier killed in iraq spoke their comments prompted Trump to criticize the Khan family and sparked bipartisan backlash.
Trump’s drop in numbers could also be a result of his initial refusal to back top republican lawmakers, like House Speaker Paul Ryan for re-election, causing an intra-party rift.
Gov. John Kasich, says, “Thought it was a little bizarre. Paul, he’s in the Jack Kemp mode. He’s a guy that’s a positive. Kelly Ayotte. She’s a terrific senator. John McCain is such an amazing guy. Not just an American hero but here’s a guy who served his country well.”
