In a dramatic swing of polling data, Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton now holds a substantial lead over her Republican rival, the notorious hate-monger Donald Trump.
A recently released Washington Post/ABC News pegged the former secretary of state’s lead as 12 points, 51 percent to 39 percent over the loud-mouthed billionaire. Signaling troubling signs for Trump, about 64 percent of those polled said the business mogul is unqualified to be the next commander-in-chief while 61 percent think Clinton is qualified.
A second Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll show Clinton lead among minorities with 87 percent to 5 percent among African-Americans and 69 percent to 22 percent with Latinos. She is also more popular among women by 52 percent to 35 percent.
Meanwhile, Trump leads among white voters at 49 percent to 37 percent.
While both the national polls signify Clinton’s growing popularity, the Trump campaign seems to put more stock in the latter one.

Clinton has also gained ground over Trump in his former strongholds — Florida, Wisconsin, Colorado and even North Carolina.
