Clinton Lead Over Trump Would Grow Without Sanders in The Race | MTP 5-29-2016



by Dante Chinni

The latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll shows Hillary Clinton with a narrow three-point lead over Donald Trump, 46 percent to 43 percent. But if Bernie Sanders were out of the race the NBC News political unit estimates her lead would likely be much larger, perhaps up around eight points, 51 percent to 43 percent.






The difference in those two scenarios is one kind of voter that pops in many polls: The Sanders-only supporter.

The latest set of presidential polls shows two very different races - the tight three-point battle between Clinton and Trump, and a much larger lead for Sanders over Trump. The NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll had Sanders with a whopping 15 point lead over the presumptive GOP nominee, 54 percent to 39 percent.

2. I hope Hillary Camp says NO to all his demands.

 

No one owes him anything.

3. The same thing was said in 2008.

Obama didn't owe Hillary anything, but he curiously ended up paying the leftover bills from her campaign. If Hillary doesn't treat Bernie well, she's taking a very big risk for the general election.

4. this can play to Hillary's advantage before the convention

she can come off almost like an underdog until then, and ride a big-ass bounce after the nomination

6. Just block it out, that'll work. Of course in the article it explains this is based on

historical examples.

7. And Bernie's lead increase without HRC in the race?

The article shows (in text only, not the fancy graphs) Sanders with a much larger 54% to 39% lead over Trump.

Interesting...

11. There are still some folks who think there is a ton a garbage just waiting to be thrown at Sanders.

It is as if the GOPukes were the only opposing his candidacy.

The reality is that whatever stuff is out there, like guns, etc, has already been brought up by the CLinton campaign and her surrogates and her super-Pacs. Also, the racist, sexist, jewish, homophobic smears that have been circulated since the first day.

There are no surprises coming down the road if Sanders wins the nomination.

12. You just can't get your head around the fact

he lost the liberal party nomination? He would get crucified in a GE. He HAS NOT been attacked from the right yet. Not to an inkling of what it would be. Personally, I don't believe YOU believe what you post. I have come to the obvious conclusion that posters of your persuasion are nothing but propaganda spreaders for the cause.

14. There's always a post primary bump.

Trump is actually enjoying one since Cruz stepped down.
