Hillary Losing to Trump for First Time in Key Poll, Sanders Tops Trump

An RCP national moving average of polls matching Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump head-to-head has Trump talking the lead over Hillary for the first time in the widely-watched poll, while Bernie Sanders continues his consistent stronger performance against Trump. The polls again up-end the parallel universe in which the major media networks live, in which Clinton is touted as the more "electable" candidate over Trump.

Clinton's decline takes place at the same time that ruthlessly effective ads against her are unveiled by the Trump campaign, following the narrative that Hillary was the "enabler," as Trump says, of Bill Clinton's sexual behavior in the past. Trump maintains Hillary aggressively browbeat and intimidated women from stepping forward to complain. The ad cleverly asks - "Here we go again?" - raising the specter of the scandal-ridden years in the White House while Bill Clinton was president, when one scandal after another filled the headlines, bringing the country's legislative business to a grinding halt.

The nation's weariness of scandal inspired the name of the group Move On.
