Poll: Trump Closing in on Clinton, as Sanders Remains Formidable

Clinton now leads Trump nationally 48 to 45 percent, an unsettling development as the candidates enter their final stretch of primaries

Donald Trump has reduced Hillary Clinton's national lead to just three points—down from five last week—underscoring the grim prospects of the presidential election, a new poll released on Tuesday reveals.

The NBC News/SurveyMonkey poll finds that Clinton now leads Trump nationally 48 to 45 percent, an unsettling development as the candidates enter their final stretch of primaries, two of which are taking place Tuesday in Kentucky and Oregon. Last week, Clinton and Trump were found to be in a dead heat in three swing states.

Politico reports:

Clinton dominates among minority voters. The Democratic front-runner leads Trump by a 75-point margin among black voters, 84 percent to 9 percent, and holds a 37-point advantage among Hispanic voters, 65 percent to 28 percent. Women also favor Clinton, while Trump leads among men and white voters.

The survey also notes that Clinton's rival, Bernie Sanders, beats Trump by 53 to 41 points in a hypothetical match-up—a much wider margin than the former secretary of state.

4. Hillary is fighting in TWO races. Once she can concentrate on the GE, things will change.

10. Yes, Primaries are so yesterday. Screw the rest of the voters, right?

 

The Coronation didn't happen quite so quickly. Bernie has been an absolute gentlemen for the most part. And why a group of Democrats want to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory is beyond me. Well, not really. It's The Bubble. Bernie is about a sure a win in the GE.

Now, back to the Coronation. And, apart from her unwillingness to have "two devices" faux pas, she is ever so capable of dealing with two opponents. Just because The Establishment Republicans couldn't hold, doesn't mean that the Democrats should automatically fold.

Actually, she has three worries...the other ... the Investigations...plural...going on as we speak. And it's my opinion that the last one is the biggest reason Bernie is staying in and most of his supporters are not throwing in the towel...no matter how hard they try.

Were she not so inherently flawed, Bernie would not have made it to almost par. Same for the Investigations. They'd have long ago been wrapped up. But the shit just keeps on coming up.

No pity on my part...nor victim card. She and Bill have created this mess and they are going to have to be held accountable...and ultimately clean it up or retire and be good grandparents.

5. If by "formidable" you mean that your candidate lost his quest for the nomination, then I agree.

8. It's amazing how none of the Sanders attack ads have had any impact on the race.

 

Oh wait...

11. Hispanic Vote

 

Trump gets 28% of the Hispanic vote? Isn't that a higher percentage than what Mittens received?
