    Trump Faces Hurdle With Minority Voters as Clinton Maintains Lead, Poll Shows

    Trump Faces Hurdle With Minority Voters as Clinton Maintains Lead, Poll Shows

    Hillary Clinton continues to hold a large national lead over Donald Trump, 50 percent to 42 percent, weeks after the Democratic National Convention.

    Clinton's 8-point advantage is virtually unchanged from her 9-point lead last week, and she has seen similar margins since the end of July. These results are according to the latest NBC News|SurveyMonkey Weekly Election Tracking Poll among registered voters.

    In a four-way general election match-up, Clinton holds a 5-point margin over Trump 43-38 percent, while Libertarian Gary Johnson garners 11 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein gets 5 percent.

    Over the past week, Trump's campaign team saw major staffing changes. The changes coincided with Trump acknowledging that he regretted some of his comments on the campaign trail and a shift in targeting non-white voters. During campaign rallies over the weekend, Trump said the Republicans must "do better" with African-American voters and predicted he would get over 95 percent of support from black voters if he were to run in a re-election campaign in 2020.

    Trump faces a steep climb if he is to win non-white voters. Results from the latest tracking poll show that only 8 percent of black voters support him, compared to 87 percent who support Clinton. Trump is also behind among Hispanic voters with 22 percent compared to 73 percent who support Clinton. Asian Americans also overwhelmingly support Clinton, 66 percent to 23 percent who support Trump.

    Race relations will likely continue to be a campaign issue through November, and the latest tracking poll found that 65 percent of registered voters think race relations in the United States are getting worse. Just under a quarter said race relations are staying about the same and only 10 percent said they think race relations are getting better. Majorities across all racial groups — white, black, Hispanic and Asian American voters — said they think race relations are getting worse in this country.

    While a majority of supporters among both candidates think race relations are getting worse, Trump supporters seem to be less optimistic. Among Clinton supporters, 54 percent think race relations in the United States are getting worse, 31 percent think they are staying about the same and 15 percent think race relations are getting better. Among Trump supporters, 78 percent think race relations are getting worse, 16 percent think they are staying the same and only 5 percent think they are getting better.

    Gender continues to be an important demographic this election season. While Trump is ahead among men by 6 points — 43 percent to 49 percent — Clinton is ahead among women by 21 points — 56 percent to 35 percent.

    Although Clinton is the first female to be nominated for president by a major political party, 55 percent of voters still think that society has not reached the point where women and men have equal opportunities for achievement; 43 percent said society has reached the point of equal opportunity for both genders.

    Among women, 66 percent said society has not reached the point where women and men have equal opportunities, and 32 percent of women said society has reached the point of gender equality. Among men, however, 56 percent said society has reached the point of equal opportunity and 42 percent of men said society has not gotten there yet.

    An overwhelming majority of Clinton supporters — 74 percent — said society has not reached the point of gender equality. Only a quarter of Clinton supporters said society has reached the point of equal opportunity. Among Trump supporters, though, 65 percent said society has reached the point of gender equality and only 34 percent said society has not reached that point yet.

    The NBC News|SurveyMonkey Weekly Election Tracking poll was conducted online August 15 through August 21, 2016 among a national sample of 17,459 adults who say they are registered to vote. Respondents for this non-probability survey were selected from the nearly three million people who take surveys on the SurveyMonkey platform each day. Results have an error estimate of plus or minus 1.1 percentage points. For full results and methodology, click here.

    Gained a little, 1%. Need much better results than this. In 4 way race, just 5 point difference. But he's getting 22% Hispanic and 8% Black Vote. Black vote better than some polls that showed him at 1%. 22% is about where Romney was. Scarborough said this morning that 8% is about where most Republican usually are. Trump keeps up asking for the Black Vote and letting them know he wants to improve things for Black Voter everywhere but especially in the inner cities, might get a lot more soon.

    Keep up the good work, Donald J Trump. Lots of work to do, but believe me, you can't afford confusion on your immigration issue. You can't have Kellyanne telling voters your positions are "to be determined". You can't have her calling illegal aliens "those who live among us." That just won't do. That is absolutely unacceptable. You need to move her off the TV and hide her at a desk or get rid of her and rehire Corey Lewandowski to take you to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

    For the life of me, I can't understand why anyone would vote for Hillary. She's a crook and only out for personal gain. Her supporters must be oblivious in regards to her scandals or don't pay attention to the news. I just don't understand.

    A lot of people are not involved even with all the info available. Most do see headline splashes, tv ads, etc; that is why msm is using negative lines as a tactic against Trump. It is an old marketing trick.

    He should bombard the media with short headline messages with a visual if possible. There is a lot of bad news @ clinton - he needs to push that so "always dem voters" think twice @ voting for such a self absorbed lyin' crook. And a line @ his positive agenda too.

    You need to move her off the TV and hide her at a desk or get rid of her
    Trump will get rid of her if she does not improve his polls - don't think she will. She is not good for him nor his voters, not able to win over new voters. She is already causing major confusion and she doesn't know when to stop and move on.

    She talked enough @ immigration, let's not get any further detailed at this time - it is already established Trump will enforce laws, clinton will not. Talk more @ her using sos position for personal gain and with totally unacceptable persons, those that are not our friends or behave atrociously. clinton should not have accepted $$ to play - WRONG!

    Using her staff for the clinton fdtn and of course her very dangerous email server, many knew our every move because of her sloppiness and selfish desires. Her destruction of Libya & all that followed - death to Americans there at the time. Next Commander in Chief material - NO WAY!
