Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump by only 7 points in Connecticut
Likely Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has a single-digit lead over presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump in deep-blue Connecticut, according to a poll released Tuesday.
Mrs. Clinton was at 45 percent in the Quinnipiac University poll and Mr. Trump was at 38 percent.
While Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump, her single digit lead is smaller than might be expected from true-blue Connecticut, and her negative favorability rating is almost as bad as his, said Quinnipiac University Poll Director Douglas Schwartz.
Its pretty amazing that Trump is within single digits of Clinton, given how poorly he scores on having the temperament and being prepared for the presidency, Dr. Schwartz said. What Trump has going for him is the desire for change, and the weakness of Hillary Clinton.
Sen. Bernard Sanders, meanwhile, led Mr. Trump by 19 points, 54 percent to 35 percent.
This is a solidly Democratic blue state that Obama won by 18 points in 2012, and as we see in the poll, Bernie has a similar lead, whereas Hillary can only manage a slim 7 point lead, and the battle between her and Trump hasn't even started yet...
Sadly, some Democrats prefer a less moral presidential candidate more likely to lose.
The polls will change when it's one-on-one polling.
unless you think quinnipac is biased, it is a legit news story.
Quinnipac is a leading poll company quoted regularly in all mainstream news sources.
He's in the mid 30s in both. That means his support doesn't grow much with a different opponent. It means that the difference in predominantly in Bernie voters who aren't supporting Hillary yet.
That will change as people get over their feelings.
unlike Hillary supporters who will vote for Bernie if he were the nominee and have no problem saying it.
You really should understand that is the key reason.
Why am I not surprised?
Anybody who thinks Trump will win CT is smoking serious crack
