The latest on the presidential horse race.

Sanders Falls to Clinton in Three New York Polls

Hillary Clinton continues to poll well against Bernie Sanders in New York. The latest three polls by Quinnipiac, NY1/Baruch, and PPP all went in her favor.

Quinnipiac

  • Hillary Clinton – 53%
  • Bernie Sanders – 40%

NY1/Baruch

  • Hillary Clinton – 50%
  • Bernie Sanders – 37%

PPP

  • Hillary Clinton – 51%
  • Bernie Sanders – 40%

If Clinton can win New York, it will greatly diminish any chances that Sanders has at winning the Democratic nomination. A lot of delegates are up for grab in New York and Clinton is playing up her reputation in the state in order to cement them into her already healthy delegate totals.

Sanders has had a rough week in the media after he got caught in a name calling contest against Clinton, when he suggested that she was “unqualified” to be president. He needs to overcome this Trump-level debauchery if he wants to be taken seriously as a candidate. Sanders has a lot to offer to voters and he needs to continue to drive those points home.
