Clinton widens lead over Trump

Richard Hanna (R-N.Y.) on Tuesday announced he will vote for Hillary Clinton in November because Donald Trump is "unfit to serve our party and can not lead this country".

Rep. Richard Hanna (R-NY) on Tuesday became the first Republican member of the House to openly say that he plans to vote for Hillary Clinton in November. According to the poll, support for Clinton has jumped by four percent - 46 percent of registered voters who participated in the poll favor her, while 39 percent back Trump.

On Monday Trump had criticised the Muslim parents of an American soldier killed in Iraq, saying they had "viciously" attacked him.

"None of it bothers me", said 65-year-old Vickie Myers, an area resident.

He (Sanders) made a deal with the devil. But when you add in how much Trump lost during the DNC - how much the gap between them changed - she gained 12 points.

Ghazala Khan wrote an opinion piece in the Washington Post on Sunday saying that she had remained silent during her husband's remarks because she was anxious she would be too emotional to speak.

Calling the GOP nominee "profoundly offensive and narcissistic", "a world-class panderer", and "anything but a leader", Rep. Hanna also says Trump is "unfit to serve our party and can not lead this country".

Both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump earned a convention bounce, but impressions of their parties have soured.

Trump spent the days after winning the Republican nomination criticizing a USA district court judge's Mexican heritage.

The president is challenging Republican leaders to withdraw their endorsements of Trump.

The campaign said its best 24-hour online fundraising period came between 8 p.m. July 28 and 8 p.m. July 29 - during and immediately after Clinton's formal acceptance of the Democratic presidential nomination.

The NBC News/SurveyMonkey online weekly tracking poll finds Clinton surging and Trump slipping, with Clinton now holding an eight-point lead, 50 percent to 42 percent.

"I said very simply: they're not gonna do it on my watch, essentially", Trump said. I won't do their shows.When people finally realise that I'm not doing their shows they stop watching. Trump has a narrow 2-point edge on handling gun policy. Was Trump kidding? His campaign hasn't said, but the language was typically hyperbolic and will surely draw a flurry of criticism that he is a hothead who holds grudges and loves to demonize his adversaries.

In fact, pollster Charles Franklin pointed out this week that the DNC marks not only the start of an uptick in Clinton's favorability but the start of a slide in Trump's.
