U.S. President Donald Trump gives a thumbs up upon returning to the White House from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on October 05, 2020 in Washington, DC. Trump spent three days hospitalized for coronavirus. His poll numbers have worsened since his diagnosis.

However, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was also ahead of Trump at this point in the 2016 race but went on to lose the electoral college vote as Trump won narrow victories in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin.

On October 28, 2016 then FBI Director James Comey sent a letter to the House Judiciary Committee about the discovery of emails that may have been of

Axial maximum intensity projection images and a heat map in a 60-year old man who presented to the emergency department with new onset left-sided weakness. A, Arterial (phase 1) image shows an abrupt occlusion of the distal M1 branch of the right middle cerebral artery (arrow) with paucity of distal vasculature. B, Venous (phase 2) image shows subtle asymmetry with minimal increased vascularity in the contralateral left hemisphere. C, Late venous (phase 3) image shows prominent increased opacification of the ipsilateral right hemispheric vasculature downstream from the occlusion. D, Heat map shows the most discriminative region (red) that the model used for the correct prediction. Credit: Radiological Society of North America

A sophisticated type of artificial intelligence (AI) called deep learning can help rapidly detect blockages in the arteries that supply blood to the head, potentially speeding the onset of life-saving treatment, according to a study published in Radiology.
