November 7th, 2016. One day before the American public is told who comes out on top of a political bloodbath between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Anticipation fills every room you're in, from your job to the nurses office, everyone has the same thought on their mind; who's going to win?
Multiple polls show Clinton maintaining a consistent, yet small, lead over Trump. According to polls from USA Today, Bloomberg, Economist, NBC News, Reuters, ABC News, and FOX News has Clinton leading by 1-4 points. However, the LA Times, Trafalgar Group, Emerson, Remington Research, and Landmark have Trump leading anywhere from 1 to 7 points.
Donald Trump: "I think we're going to blow them out tomorrow ... this is not the sound of a second place finish."
Although many major polls show Clinton holding a slight lead, Donald Trump believes November 8th will result in a landslide in his favor. At a rally on Nov. 7th, Trump spoke to an eager crowd, "I think we're going to blow them out tomorrow in a lot of different ways." He said, finishing off with a remark "been some campaign, too".
Finding solitude in confinement
Many Trump supporters aren't worried by the polls. They believe that many of the nations top polls are skewed because many Trump supporters don't want to say they're voting for Trump over the phone or in-person. However, when the time comes to pencil in someone's name, they're confident there's a large group of "hidden supporters" waiting to cast their vote in secrecy behind the cloth on November 8th. A study from New York Times reaffirms this suspicion, stating that research done at Cornell Univesity found that their are indeed hidden supporters favoring Trump. However, "they're likely to stay home" says Peter Enns.
