(Newsweek) A survey shows that if the 2016 presidential election were held today Hillary Clinton would win the popular vote. The American Barometer was conducted by Hill.TV and the polling company HarrisX.
Based on the responses, the poll found that 36 percent of voters would vote for Trump again while 44 percent would vote for Clinton.
4 percent said they would vote for Libertarian Gary Johnson and 2 percent said they would vote for Jill Stein of the Green Party. Other options allowed respondents to choose not to vote in this hypothetical situation, to decline to vote, or choose someone else.
When these options were taken away and people were asked to choose between Trump or Clinton, the number of people who would vote for Trump increased to 40 percent while Clinton surpassed him with 50 percent. The survey was conducted online between September 14 and September 15 among 1,000 registered voters. The results were weighted for age within gender, region, race and ethnicity, income and education. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.2 percentage points.
During the 2016 election, Clinton had won the popular vote with 48.2 percent. Trump still managed to win the Electoral College and land the presidency.
“In 2016, I think a bunch of Americans thought to themselves “let’s just blow things up and see what happens,’” John Podesta, Clinton campaign chief, said to Hill.TV regarding the poll. “Now that they have actually seen what happens, they wish they could get back to the strong, steady leadership that Hillary has always provided.”
“I think that the  percent or so that said they supported Hillary Clinton, that’s not enough to get you reelected,” Democratic pollster Molly Murphy told Hill.TV regarding the poll. “I think that that’s people who liked Hillary Clinton who still like her, and still would vote for her again,” she continued.
A different survey conducted by Hill.TV showed that 46 percent of people approved of Trump while his disapproval rating is higher at 54 percent.
In a poll conducted by the Republican National Committee in September, 45 percent of respondents said they would vote for a Republican candidate who supports President Trump, while 50 percent said they would choose a Democratic candidate who would be a check and balance for the president.

WATCH: House Rep Hilariously Mocks Ocasio’s Green New Deal In Fyre Festival Parody Video
A House Republican released a video making fun of the troubled Democratic rollout of the Green New Deal, comparing it to the catastrophic 2017 Fyre Festival — turning the insane radical proposal into a punching bag.
Rep. Mark Walker, released a short hilarious video that shows what looks like a typical ad for a festival similar to Fyre interspersed with captions presenting some of the controversial aspects of Green New Deal proposals.
— Rep. Mark Walker (@RepMarkWalker) February 13, 2019
“A socialist utopia.”
“Kill off all the cows”
“Ban all the airplanes.”
Underneath the text are images of party-goers, beach walks and other malarky that wouldn’t be out of place in a festival promo.
“We’ll just print more money,” it continues.
“Green New Deal, Trust Us,” it finishes, with a man washed up on the beach.`
Fyre Festival was promised as a super-cool experience filled with top-notch food, luxury housing, top bands and supermodels hanging out. Instead participants were famously given basic cheese sandwiches and housed in tents.The resulting furor went viral and made international headlines, and has resulted in two recent documentaries about the disaster.
Walker was making a comparison between the botched festival and the the troubled rollout of the deal last week.
The far-reaching but often vague proposal, formalized in the resolution, hit turbulence as reporters either discovered, or were given by Ocasio-Cortez’s office, two FAQs that included radical ideas such as phasing out air travel and giving economic security to those “unwilling” to work.
Ocasio-Cortez’s office later pushed back, initially calling one of the documents a fake before conceding that the FAQ was genuine — but just not ready for public consumption yet.
One version was published on Ocasio-Cortez’s website before being taken down, while another version was published by NPR.
The language, which included questioning whether America would be able to get rid of “farting cows” quickly enough, was met with some shock and also some delight from Republicans.

Triple Amputee Wall Funder Just Dropped Announcement on Dems Right Before Christmas
The viral Gofundme wall campaign founder, Brian Kolfage has just dropped a bomb on Democrats who are trying io stall the wall and funding bill until after they take over control of the house.
Brian Kolfage has posted to his twitter account announcing that he’s heading to Washington DC to get the wall passed and funded.
We reached out to Kolfage for comment and he stated his team of advisors are speaking directly with House and Senate members to get the wall funded through the government as well as a Bill to allow private donations to be used to construct the wall.
This is absolutely huge news and crushing to Democrat’s who said it wasn’t possible. Kolfage further went on to say that:
“Everyone continues to say ‘you can’t do that’ or ‘it’s illegal or ‘it will never happen’. But tell me this, since when have we ever accepted defeat in America? When have we ever not gave it our all to achieve the impossible? This is The United States of America and we just don’t roll over and die when something seems difficult, we buckle up and give it our all and that’s exactly what I’m doing”
Kolfage’s can do attitude is a breath of fresh air, and politicians across the board can learn something from this man. He’s exactly right, and we need to start fighting for everything in this nation harder.
Kolfage’s tweeted below:
I’m going to DC, we are going to get this bill passed to ensure YOUR WALL IS BUILT WITH OUR FUNDS!

Brian Kolfage has faced an onslaught of attacks from political trolls, even making fake accounts in his name and posting racist remarks around the internet. But one thing is very clear about Brian, none of those fake news statements are true. He a man who loves his country and loves the people who make it great.
In an interview with the Arizona Republic, Brian stated that he supports ‘Legal Immigration‘. He wants people to use the front door and go through the process the legal way and also notes the government is falling short on the immigration process of taking nearly a decade for immigrants to become citizens, which might discourage some to cut the line and cross illegally.
“We are a nation of immigrants, but legal immigrants. everyone is welcome to America, but they must use the front door. People who are sneaking into our country and bypassing immigration are hiding things it would appear. When people break into a house to steal stuff they don’t ring the door the bell, they break in through the back. Just use the front door, immigrants just need to show up at a checkpoint and go through the proper channels and do it correctly.”
Brian cited one email he received as a perfect example:
Now who do you support? Those breaking into America, cutting the line and committing a federal crime? Or the immigrant doing it the right way and coming here legally? We know which one Democrats support, those who are the ones breaking the law.
