For the first time in a major poll, the Republican Party has beaten the Democrats in every single head-to-head matchup. The polls looked at matchups between Bush, Walker, and Rubio versus Clinton, Sanders, and Biden. The Republicans won all of the polls and the Democrats best candidate appeared to be Clinton. However, Clinton’s previous leads have dwindled and she continues to struggle in recent polls. Oddly enough, the data didn’t include Donald Trump, but his numbers would have been comparable if he appeared in this poll.
