Pollster John McLaughlin predicts a victory for Donald Trump in the November election, because 70 percent of Americans think the United States is on the wrong track.
Speaking on "The Cats Roundtable"
Sunday radio show on AM 970 New York hosted by John Catsimatidis, McLaughlin said that 56 percent of Americans want a change from the policies of President Barack Obama, with only 34 percent wanting a continuation. This helps the non-politician Trump over Democrat Hillary Clinton, who was part of the Obama administration, McLaughlin said.
The majority of Americans want change because they feel insecure about their personal security and their economic security, said McLaughlin, who does polling work for Trump.
He emphasized that "Right now there are more states up for grabs than we have seen in decades and that’s because ... the blue-collar workers now are up for grabs – and Trump has the ability to get them," due largely to voters’ perception that he would more successfully create jobs.
McLaughlin pointed out that in many swing states, Trump’s negatives are going down, while Clinton’s are going up due to a large extent to FBI Director James Comey's recent press conference on her email server. Even though Comey did not recommend an indictment against Clinton, he "laid out a case that really put her character in question," McLaughlin said.
