Trump vs. Clinton

Trump gave a short speech in West Des Moines, Iowa, after learning of his close second-place finish in the state’s Republican caucus. He predicted victory in November, citing his poll numbers against Clinton (at the 2:27 mark).
Trump, Feb. 1: I will say this. I don’t know who is going to win between Bernie and Hillary. I don’t know what’s going to happen with Hillary. She’s got other problems, maybe bigger than the problems she’s got in terms of nominations. But we’ve had so many different indications and polls that we beat her and we beat her easily, and we will go on to get the Republican nomination and we will go on to easily beat Hillary or Bernie or whoever the hell they throw up there.
Trump has what Politico described as a “polling obsession.” He “rarely lets an opportunity escape without mentioning his titanic standing” in the polls, Politico said. That’s because, for months, he has been at the top of nearly all national polls for the Republican nomination. But he’s wrong about his head-to-head polling with Clinton in the general election, at least according to Real Clear Politics’ list of national polls.
As of Feb. 2, Real Clear Politics listed 40 polls taken between May 2015 and January 2016 that matched Trump against Clinton in a head-to-head general election. Trump comes out on top in only four of the 40 polls, and his advantage is within the margin of error in all four:
graphics in article of polls but when you have voters who only follow te narrative on one outlet known to be biased i guess you can get away with bald faced lies.  Trump does however see things in a overly grandiose manner his use of "thousands and thouands" is legendary and in most cases improbable like the thousands o Muslims cheering on a rooftop when towers fell in 911 he even went so far as to say "i saw it". 

"I have fantastic relationships with the Hispanics," Trump said last week. "I employ thousands of Hispanics right now, tens of thousands over the years I've employed. They're fantastic people."

Trump is viewed unfavorably by 72 percent of Hispanics, with 6 in 10 having a very unfavorable opinion of him, the AP-GfK poll finds. Only 11 percent view him favorably.
