The GOP is split over Donald Trump but they’d better get used to it because it looks like he will be the nominee. He is a revolutionary candidate and one that will attempt counter the socialist on the left who is running for Obama’s third term – Hillary Clinton but a new poll finds Hillary will be the clear and easy winner.
Of course it remains to be seen because this is before they’ve blasted each other.
The establishment does not believe Trump can win and they see him as taking down the entire ticket.
Both of the remaining Democratic candidates for president easily top Republican front-runner Donald Trump in hypothetical general election match-ups, according to a new CNN/ORC Poll. Keep in mind that this poll is run by the left. Another thought is that the polls last week said Trump beats her.
But Hillary Clinton, who is well ahead in the Democratic race for the presidency, would likely face a stronger challenge should Florida Sen. Marco Rubio or Texas Sen. Ted Cruz capture the Republican nomination for president Clinton tops Trump 52% to 44% among registered voters. That result has tilted in Clinton’s favor since the last CNN/ORC Poll on the match-up in January.
But when the former secretary of state faces off with either of the other two top Republicans, things are much tighter and roughly the same as they were in January. Clinton trails against Rubio, with 50% choosing the Florida senator compared to 47% for Clinton, identical to the results in January. Against Cruz, Clinton holds 48% to his 49%, a slight tightening from a 3-point race in January to a 1-point match-up now.
Ironically, Trump is regarded as three times more trustworthy by GOP primary goers than Cruz and Rubio according to a new CNN/ORC poll.
If the number of delegates for Rubio and Cruz combined beats Trump, the pressure will be on Cruz to drop out of the race but Rubio is the one who needs to drop out. Rubio hasn’t won a state. Cruz wouldn’t respond to pressure no matter what they do. Even if one dropped out, some of the votes will go to Trump and there is no way it will have the effect the RINOs want which is to dispatch Donald Trump.
The CNN/ORC poll has Trump and Clinton in the lead on Super Tuesday. Trump is now at 49 percent of GOP voters. The rest of the news is bad for all the other candidates.
On the Republican side, the poll shows:
- Donald Trump, 49 percent
- Marco Rubio, 16 percent
- Ted Cruz, 15 percent
- Ben Carson, 10 percent
- John Kasich, 6 percent
In terms of who Republicans believe the best candidate would be to solve the countries problems, most say Trump.
- Donald Trump, 51 percent
- Ted Cruz, 17 percent
- Marco Rubio, 13 percent
- Ben Carson, 10 percent
CNN reports that on the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton tops Bernie Sanders 55 to 38 percent, a wider margin than she held in late January before any primaries or caucuses were held.
