Do not count out a major bounceback from Donald Trump following numerous sexually oriented allegations against him, veteran pollster John Zogby told Newsmax TV.
There is "natural gravitational pull" in play that could change things quickly, Zogby, senior partner at John Zogby Strategies, told host J.D. Hayworth on Thursday's "America Talks Live."

"Trump is at about 41, 42 and Hillary is at about 42, 43." Zogby said. "Trump will bottom out, and then there's the realization by the undecided, 'Hey, there's another candidate here, and we don't like her all that much either.'
"Trump went down after the horrible videotape was released and is slowly, steadily bouncing his way back up. Hillary went up a few points, slowly and steadily going back down.
"We've seen this play before in 2000, 2004 and so on. You're ultimately looking at a competitive race barring anything unforeseen."
Zogby also criticized as "irresponsible" NBC's participation in a poll which showed Clinton with a large lead — a poll that came out after the airing of Trump's sexually charged remarks about women during the filming of an NBC-affiliated show.
In the past 24 hours, numerous women have stepped forward — including two in The New York Times — to accuse Trump of groping them or being sexually inappropriate.
Zogby is the author of "We are Many, We are One: Neo-Tribes and Tribal Analytics in 21st Century America," published by Paramount Marketing Publishing.
