General Election Polls Puts Bush Ahead of Clinton

The results from the latest political poll by Quinnipiac University show that Jeb Bush has narrowly edged out Hillary Clinton in a set of questions that were based on a general election.

Jeb Bush vs. Democrats:

  • Jeb Bush – 42%, Hillary Clinton – 41%
  • Jeb Bush – 42%, Joe Biden – 43%
  • Jeb Bush – 44%, Bernie Sanders – 39%

Donald Trump vs. Democrats:

  • Donald Trump – 36%, Hillary Clinton – 48%
  • Donald Trump – 37%, Joe Biden – 49%
  • Donald Trump – 37%, Bernie Sanders – 45%

Scott Walker vs. Democrats:

  • Scott Walker – 43%, Hillary Clinton – 44%
  • Scott Walker – 43%, Joe Biden – 43%
  • Scott Walker – 42%, Bernie Sanders – 37%

While most of the Republican candidates struggled against the Democrats, Bush came out on top against Clinton and lost by only 1 percent to Joe Biden. Of the major Republican candidates, Bush is seen as a more moderate choice when compared to the shenanigans of Trump and Walker. Clinton continues to hold her lead over the other Democrat candidates, but she isn’t as far ahead as she used to be and Sanders’ campaign is slowly eroding the strong lead that she once had.

As we’ve previously stated, the Democrats will likely head into the election with Clinton, while the Republicans will more than likely be led by Bush or Trump if he somehow manages to capture the imaginations of average Americans. Trump’s current stance is acceptable to certain groups, but highly offensive to others and he continues to alienate himself with moderate groups.
