Donald Trump now competitive in general election
Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton ahead of Trump by just 6 points

Since announcing his campaign in late June, Donald Trump has quickly leapt to the top of the Republican field, leading recent polls nationally, in Iowa and in New Hampshire. And now, for the first time in CNN/ORC polling, his gains among the Republican Party have boosted him enough to be competitive in the general election.

The poll finds Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton ahead of Trump by just 6 points, a dramatic tightening since July. Trump is the one of three Republican candidates who have been matched against Clinton multiple times in CNN/ORC polling to significantly whittle the gap between himself and the Democratic frontrunner. He trailed Clinton by 16 points in a July poll, and narrowed that gap by boosting his standing among Republicans and Republican-leaning independents (from 67% support in July to 79% now), men (from 46% in July to 53% now) and white voters (from 50% to 55%).

But Clinton still holds the cards overall in the race for the White House, leading four Republican contenders: She tops Trump and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker by 6 points each among registered voters, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush by 9 points, and businesswoman Carly Fiorina by 10 points.

Clinton maintains this edge in the general election race despite a growing perception that by using a personal email account and server while serving as secretary of state she did something wrong. About 56% say so in the new poll, up from 51% in March. About 4-in-10 (39%) now say she did not do anything wrong by using personal email. Among Democrats, the share saying she did not do anything wrong has dipped from 71% in March to 63% now, and just 37% of independents say she did not do wrong by using the personal email system.

Ventura To Trump: You Can’t Be A Benevolent Dictator
Lays into immigration policy – “I don’t want to live with walls around my country… like I live inside East Berlin.”

“He’s not the benevolent dictator, not like you are when you’re head of a corporation,” Ventura said, noting that as President Trump would not get away with throwing his power around like a boss.

“He has to understand that government is a system of checks and balances, and people have to work together and compromises have to happen.”

Ventura noted that he finds Trump appealing because he is able to fund his own campaign, rather than being beholden to lobbyists and big business.

Anchor Don Lemon referenced comments Ventura has made in the past, suggesting that political representatives should be forced to wear the names of those who have bankrolled them, like NASCAR racing drivers’ suits.

Ventura clarified that the idea was purely an analogy, but that it is still a valid point.

In separate comments made on his own show ‘Off The Grid’, Ventura criticized Trump, and US immigration policy in general, for advocating building a wall on the US Mexico border.

“We stand for freedom, and yet we want to put up a wall that makes the United States look like a prison? Walls are a two-way street. Not only will they keep people out, but they will also keep you in.” Ventura stated.

The former Navy Seal urged that he does not want to live “with walls around my country… like I live inside East Berlin.”

“I’ll tell you what’s weird about all this. When I drive into Mexico, I’m welcome. Nobody there questions why I’m there, in fact they welcome me for coming down there,” Ventura said. “Yet when I turn around and come back to my own home country, the United States, it usually takes me two-to-three hours of unconditional questioning.”

“Something is sorely wrong with that.” Ventura noted, also reasoning that the 9/11 terrorists got into the US via the Northern border, according to the government account of events.
