From The New York Times...............

(Editor's note: I republished the first three paragraphs of this story to provide a portion of this article to the readers of COTR.  A link is provided at the bottom of the piece to provide readers a choice to go read the full article)

"Hillary Clinton has emerged from the F.B.I. investigation into her email practices as secretary of state a wounded candidate with a large and growing majority of voters saying she cannot be trusted, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll.

As Mrs. Clinton prepares to accept the Democratic Party’s nomination at the convention in Philadelphia this month, she will confront an electorate in which 67 percent of voters say she is not honest and trustworthy. That number is up five percentage points from a CBS News poll conducted last month, before the F.B.I. released its findings.

Mrs. Clinton’s six-percentage-point lead over the presumptive Republican nominee, Donald J. Trump, in a CBS News poll last month has evaporated. The two candidates are now tied in a general election matchup, the new poll indicates, with each receiving the support of 40 percent of voters." LINK

The article goes on to explain how Mr. Trump is also "untrusted" by the electorate, but, for the Grey Lady to acknowledge, (and publish), how the country feels about this liberal progressive candidate is nothing short of responsible journalism.  However, this could be the "broken clock" syndrome.

Recent polling from JMC Analytics in Florida showing Donald Trump leading Hillary Clinton 47% to 42%, and leading with Hispanic voters 49% to 36% has helped to dispel the liberal media's narrative that Mr. Trump can't attract the Hispanic voters.

Also, the most recent Quinnipiac Poll shows Trump wiping out Clinton leads from just a month ago:
"Washington (CNN) Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are now running neck-and-neck in Florida, as well as Ohio and Pennsylvania, according to a Quinnipiac University survey that took stock of three swing states. 
The poll marks an 11-point difference from a month ago in the Sunshine State. Now, Trump leads Clinton 42% to 39%, within the margin of error; a month ago Clinton led 47% to 39%. With third-party candidates included, Trump's edge extends to five points, 41% to 36%. 
In the two other states polled, Ohio and Pennsylvania, Clinton and Trump are in as tight a race as other pollsters have documented. They are tied at 41% each in Ohio, and Trump leads by 2 points, 43% to 41%, in Pennsylvania." link
Both polls above appear to be "properly weighted" unlike the Reuter's poll put out about a week ago that put Hillary ahead by 11 points.  In the Reuters poll, the publication simply polled 14% more democrats than republicans to achieve their desired results.  The national demographics, (I believe), is 4%-6%.

During the primaries, the GOP turnout was a monstrous 62% up over other Republican primaries, while the Democrats were reportedly down 22%.  If these numbers hold up in the General Election in November Mrs. Clinton may have to be looking for another residence other than 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
