Hillary Clinton Is Leading In A Greater Portion Of Polls Than Obama Was In The Last Two Elections

(she means national polls)

Hillary Clinton has consistently led in a greater portion of presidential polls in the two months heading into Election Day than President Barack Obama did in both 2008 and 2012.

The Democratic nominee is ahead of GOP nominee Donald Trump in 93 percent of polls conducted in the two months before Election Day. Trump leads in just 3 percent of the polls. Another 3 percent of polls show a tied race.

The range by which Clinton leads relative to Trump also stands in stark contrast to the 2008 and 2012 elections.

The former secretary of state leads by 1 to 13 points in the polls she is ahead in. Trumpís lead, among the 3 percent of polls heís ahead in, ranges from 1 to 2 points.

Even when the data range is narrowed to the week heading into Election Day, Clinton still has a strong advantage. Polls get more predictive of the outcome the closer they are to Election Day.

Now poll gurus, don't shoot the messenger, I know it's not a national election, it's still interesting.
