At the Starting Gate: Clinton Leads Trump by Double-Digits!
















Indianapolis (CNN)As Donald Trump captures the mantle of presumptive Republican nominee, a new poll finds he begins his general election campaign well behind Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton.

The new CNN/ORC Poll, completed ahead of Trump's victory last night, found Clinton leads 54% to 41%, a 13-point edge over the New York businessman, her largest lead since last July.

Clinton is also more trusted than Trump on many issues voters rank as critically important, with one big exception. By a 50% to 45% margin, voters say Trump would do a better job handling the economy than Clinton would.

Almost 9 out of 10 voters in the poll called the economy extremely or very important to their vote for president, outranking any other issue tested in the poll.

Clinton has the edge on a range of other issues. She is more trusted than Trump on terrorism (50% Clinton to 45% Trump), immigration (51% to 44%), health care (55% to 39%), the income gap (54% to 37%), foreign policy (61% to 36%), education (61% to 34%) and climate change (63% to 30%).

10. Love this, too.

But, Democrats everywhere cannot be complacent or seduced by early polling. The Donald is a true danger. So Hillary is going to need to work her heart out--as she always has--to Dump the Trump in the nearest dumpster.

Still horrified by this whole Trumpster event. The nightmare has arrived.

You are so right. The horror that is Trump and his fans is exposing the sheer magnitude of hate and stupidity that still exists. For the sake of our country, the world and our futures, we have to stop Trump and his fascist followers. I am sooooo glad we have Hillary leading the way! We must stick together and fight this with everything we have!

13. She leads with *independents* by double digits

51 to 40. So there goes that BS talking point.

And she gets 28% of self-identified conservatives while he gets only 8% of self-identified "liberals"

The poll itself is in the link in the op and these figures are on page 33

14. Thank you for that, Rose Siding

Those numbers for the independents are incredible. I also especially love the nearly 30% self-identified conservatives!
