Polling Shows Competitive General Election

Real Clear Politics has averaged out the most recent polling in advance of the 2016 general election, and it doesn't predict the complete destruction of Trump at the hands of the Clinton campaign.

That Donald Trump will lose in a "huge" way has been a familiar narrative since his all-but-certain position of the GOP nominee, but the data simply does not back up this idea.

Chances are, the general election cycle will continue to be confounding to popular political beliefs.
