Sanders Reigns Supreme, Trump Beats Clinton
The latest general election poll by Fox News placed Bernie Sanders ahead of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton behind Trump.
- Hillary Clinton 42% – Donald Trump 45%
- Bernie Sanders 46% – Donald Trump 42%
Sanders continues to beat Trump in head-to-head matchups. Still, Trump can rest easy knowing that he continues to poll decently against Clinton, his presumptive opponent. Trump has been working hard to tone down his rhetoric in order to better appeal to American voters. He has a big hill to climb to make that possible, but American voters have proven to have political amnesia in the past, and to some, a Trump presidency sounds better than the status quo.
Clinton needs to do better. She is the Democratic nominee, yet she continues to struggle against Trump. Clinton should be taking advantage of Trump for all the ridiculous stuff he has said in the past, but she is coming up flat and seems ineffective at penetrating Trump’s bubble of ignorance.
As for Sanders, he continues to campaign hard against Clinton, but his path to victory is near impossible. If he manages to pull off a miracle, he would stand a much better chance against Trump as he is working hard to capitalize on the anger of Americans.
