The RNC is going to be the rallying call for Republicans nationwide and is sure to provide Donald Trump a bump in the polls. This is bad news for Clinton, who found out today that her lead has shrunk to less than one point.[1]

From The Daily Caller:

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton lost her three point lead against Republican challenger Donald Trump in a new NBC weekly tracking poll published Tuesday.

The presumed nominee still holds a slight lead over Trump[3], carrying 46 percent compared to Trump’s 45 percent of likely voters. But when Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein are included in the poll, Clinton falls completely behind Trump.

Trump earned 40 percent, and Clinton earned only 39 percent of the vote. Johnson earned 10 percent of the vote, and Stein earned 5 percent.

The poll was conducted either online or over the phone, and 9,353 likely voters responded to the survey. The poll was conducted with free online survey provider SurveyMonkey.

The poll also asked respondents their views about their respective party unity. Eleven percent of Republicans think that their party is united today, and 50 percent thought the Republican Party would be united by November. The remaining 40 percent were more skeptical, saying they didn’t think the party would become united before the general election in November.

This does not bode well for Clinton, who has had a hard time this election cycle between the email scandal, the Benghazi scandal and finding it hard to relate with millennials.
