Trump closes gap in polls

Trump closes gap in polls

In a hypothetical poll for US President, Donald Trump is only six points behind Hillary Clinton.

It's astounding to us, but Americans obviously think he's a suitable world leader.

In two polls, Trump has narrowed the gap between himself and Clinton from 16-points to six.

US correspondent Dylan Howard joined Paul Henry this morning to discuss why that is.

He says a lot of Trump's popularity has to do with the amount of media exposure Trump receives.

"He's got a lot of sizzle, but very little substance."
