The latest on the presidential horse race.

Trump and Clinton Lead Nationally Heading into Super Tuesday

Super Tuesday takes place tomorrow and both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are expected to perform well, all but securing their party nominations. The latest poll by CNN/ORC reported favorable results for the two candidates.

Which Republican candidate would you vote for?

  • Donald Trump – 49%
  • Marco Rubio – 16%
  • Ted Cruz – 15%
  • Ben Carson – 10%

Which Democrats candidate would you vote for?

  • Hillary Clinton – 55%
  • Bernie Sanders – 38%

Trump has quietly been collecting Republican votes from both Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. The nomination is Trumps to take and neither Rubio or Cruz will be able to stop him. Even Trump’s insane Ku Klux Klan comments haven’t hurt him in the polls. If he can sympathize with the KKK and still maintain high support totals in the polls, nothing can stop him.

Cruz and Rubio have been trying so hard to vilify Trump, but they haven’t been successful in their attempts. Trump accepts the villain title and even relishes in it. By the end of Super Tuesday, the Republican nomination will be decided and Cruz and Rubio will likely fold their campaigns after suffering embarrassing defeats.

Bernie Sanders has been sliding for over a week now and it seems like he is out of momentum. His entire campaign relies on momentum and tapping into grassroots energy, but voters are starting to side with Clinton as she seems like the safe choice.

For Clinton, her biggest fear should be facing Trump in a general election. She is an extremely unpopular candidate and some of Sanders supporters may consider voting for Trump out of anger and because his campaign represents the middle class anger that Sander’s campaign has been focusing on since the beginning.
