The latest on the presidential horse race.

Clinton Wins California, Maintains a Sizable Lead over Sanders

The latest California poll by the Field Research Corporation has placed Hillary Clinton at the top of the Democrats, 11 percent ahead of her rival Bernie Sanders.

Which Democratic candidate would you vote for?

  • Hillary Clinton – 46%
  • Bernie Sanders – 35%

Clinton currently holds a respectable lead over Sanders in California. Her 11 percent lead shows that she is the top candidate, but with its liberal tendencies, California could easily slide in Sanders favor if he can push his progressive agenda and convince voters that he is genuinely interested in improving their well-being.

Most experts believe that Sanders is a more electable candidate than Clinton and most voters believe that he is genuine about his promises. Clinton on the other hand, has a history of lying, she has been caught saying what voters want to hear in the past, and she only took stances on major issues after Sanders already did.

Sanders needs to exploit the fact that Clinton is two-faced if he wants to gain momentum and catapult past her in the standings. While a Sanders nomination may seem like an impossible feat, it is entirely possible given the fact that Donald Trump is somehow still relevant and very likely to win the Republican nomination. There are no rules in the current election cycle and the time for Sanders to pounce is now.
