Donald Trump apparently doesn't know why he's trailing Hillary Clinton in recent presidential polls, according to an interview with radio host Mike Gallagher
on Thursday, reports Politico
"I go to Ohio, we were there two days ago, and Pennsylvania and near Pittsburgh and we — I was in West Virginia, the crowds are massive. And you know, I walked out of one, and I said, 'I don't see how I'm not leading,'" the presumptive GOP nominee said.
"We have thousands of people standing outside trying to get in, and they're great people and they have such spirit for the country and love for the country, and I'm saying, you know, 'Why am I not doing better in the polls?' And I've noticed the polls are coming up," Trump said. "But you know, you have to understand, your show, no, but many shows — it's just a constant hit from mainstream media, no matter what you do, it's always a negative.”
In a Rasmussen survey
released Thursday, the conservative-leaning organization said Trump pulled ahead of presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, with support from 43 percent of likely voters to her 39 percent. According to The Hill
, this is Trump's best performance in the Rasmussen poll against Clinton since October.
However, an Investor's Business Daily/TIPP poll
also released Thursday has Clinton up 44 to 40 percent, while a Reuters/Ipsos survey
showed her leading by about 11 percentage points, and the RealClearPolitics polling
average puts Clinton ahead by 4.8 percentage points.
