Will The Clinton Foundation Tank Hillary’s Poll Numbers?

Donald Trump is still trailing behind

The public and the media’s focus right now is the Clinton Foundation controversy, but Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers are still better than Donald Trump’s.

Trump is calling for an immediate investigation for possible conflict of interest, and he is gaining more of the Republican vote at the same time.

With ten weeks to go until the election, there is still time for Trump to catch up. Among Republicans, he has gone from 75% to 84% in the last poll by YouGov and the Economist.

Clinton, however, still has an undeniably strong lead. The latest Reuters poll has Clinton ahead by 7 points, 42% to 35%.

In the all-important swing states, Clinton is still ahead.

What’s the truth behind the Clinton Foundation?

Trump’s Reactions

Donald Trump, not one who should be casting stones about ethics, says that Hillary Clinton used the Clinton Foundation to turn her State Department into a “pay for play” operation.

He thinks the foundation should be shut down, an idea that The Huffington Post agrees with since they just ran a story about the foundation titled “Just Shut It Down” on their homepage over the weekend.

On Monday, he called for a special prosecutor to do an expedited investigation into the dealings of the foundation since the FBI and DOJ “cannot be trusted to quickly or impartially investigate Hillary Clinton’s crimes.”

Bill’s Damage Control Efforts

On Monday, Bill Clinton penned an open letter on the Clinton Foundation’s website to dispel any concern the public has, but it might be too little too late.
