Nearly Half of Sanders Voters in West Virginia Would Vote for Trump over Hillary

Exit polls in the West Virginia Democratic primary show an alarming trend. 44% of Sanders voters polled said they would vote for Trump in a Clinton vs. Trump general election matchup, while only 23% said they would vote for Clinton. 31% of Sanders voters polled said they would support neither Trump nor Clinton.

Meanwhile, about 90 percent of voters in the Republican primary polled said they would support Trump in the general election.

The news comes the same day that polling shows Clinton and Trump in a dead heat in the crucial swing states of Florida and Pennsylvania, with Trump polling 4 points above Clinton in the state of Ohio.

Sanders was projected to win the West Virginia primary shortly after the polls closed, based on exit polling data that was overwhelmingly favorable to the U.S. Senator from Vermont. Polling leading up to the primary had Sanders winning by a comfortable margin as well.

He is also expected to do very well in the upcoming Oregon primary, which has demographics that are similar to Washington state, where Sanders won by a 45-point margin.

5. You just have a habit of not answering the questions asked, don't you?

Were Sanders voters asked if they would choose Trump over him in a GE?
