Donald Trump has been trailing pro-abortion Hillary Clinton in every presidential matchup poll for months. Until now.

In the Fox New April poll, Clinton led Trump 48-41. In March she led 49-38. Now, Trump leads the abortion activist by a 45-42 margin. Though within the margin of error, it’s Trump’s first and only lead against  his Democratic rival.


The new poll found that 41 percent of those surveyed have a favorable opinion of Trump, versus 56 percent who have an unfavorable opinion. That’s an improvement from the March Fox poll, when Trump had a 31-65 favorable-unfavorable number.

Trump leads among men by a 55 to 33 margin, while Clinton leads among women by 50 to 36.

Fox News isn’t the only polling firm showing a lead for Trump today.

Rasmussen Reports Thursday morning released the results of its two-day poll showing Donald Trump would beat Democrat Hillary Clinton 42 percent to 37 percent if the election were held today.

Rasmussen results show that Clinton is facing a bigger gender gap with men than Trump is with women. For women, the gap is 11 points, with 47 percent choosing Clinton and 36 percent picking Trump. But among men, there is a 22-point gap, with 49 percent of men with Trump and just 27 percent with Clinton. In the poll sample, 51 percent were women.

The two polls come one day after Trump announced a list of 11 potential Supreme Court nominees — a list pro-life and conservative groups praised for having potential judges who would be Constitutionalists.

The list of potential nominees for the seat of pro-life Supreme Court Justice Antnoin Saclia that Trump would conifer include  Steven Colloton of Iowa, Allison Eid of Colorado and Raymond Gruender of Missouri.

Also on the list are: Thomas Hardiman of Pennsylvania, Raymond Kethledge of Michigan, Joan Larsen of Michigan, Thomas Lee of Utah, William Pryor of Alabama, David Stras of Minnesota, Diane Sykes of Wisconsin and Don Willett of Texas.

“This list was compiled, first and foremost, based on constitutional principles, with input from highly respected conservatives and Republican party leadership,” Trump’s campaign said.
