• Clinton, in ‘dead heat’ with Trump, offers sharper contrast


    WASHINGTON: Hillary Clinton tried to draw a sharper contrast with Donald Trump on Sunday (Monday in Manila), saying the central message of her campaign was “We’re stronger together,” even as a new poll showed the two candidates in a statistical tie. The new Washington Post/ABC News survey found the presidential frontrunners in “a virtual dead heat” among registered voters. Never in the poll’s history, The Post said, had two major party nominees been viewed as harshly, with nearly 6 in 10 voters holding negative impressions of both candidates. That underscored a growing sense of urgency in the Clinton campaign to define her both more clearly and positively—a task made harder by her inability to shake off her tenacious Democratic rival, Bernie Sanders. Clinton, in an appearance on NBC, challenged Trump’s “Make America Great” slogan, suggesting that “he seems to be particularly focused on making himself appear great.” The former secretary of state said her campaign would be “demonstrating the hollowness of his rhetoric, and the danger of a lot of what he has said.”
