The latest on the presidential horse race.

Trump and Clinton Fly High in Michigan

With Super Tuesday behind them, both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are flying high at the top of their parties and look unstoppable. The latest poll by Fox 2 Detroit/Mitchell posted favorable results for both candidates.

Which Democratic candidate would you vote for?

  • Hillary Clinton – 61%
  • Bernie Sanders – 33%

Which Republican candidate would you vote for?

  • Donald Trump – 39%
  • Marco Rubio – 19%
  • Ted Cruz – 14%
  • John Kasich – 12%

Another poll, the same results for Trump. He continues to lead the pack, doubling his opponents scores. At this point, he is the face of the Republican Party whether they like it or not. The GOP establishment has been working hard to undermine Trump, but they have had very little success because he loves the spotlight and the drama that comes with it.

Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz are lame duck candidates and they have been ineffective at challenging Trump on the stage. When they try to engage in policy discussion, Trump quickly deflects the conversation and nullifies it with his bombastic style. Unless Rubio and Cruz can find a way to play Trump’s game, they are finished.

The clock is ticking for Bernie Sanders. His early campaign seemed promising, but he has struggled to dent Clinton in the polls as of late and the majority of his supporters aren’t turning out to the polls to vote for him. Like usual, young people make up a large portion of the non-voting population.

So long as Clinton sticks to her game, plays it safe, and hits Sanders while he’s down, she will win the nomination and likely the presidency in 2016.
