The latest on the presidential horse race.

Trump and Clinton Take Georgia and Ohio

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are flying high in the latest polls for Georgia (Fox 5 Atlanta) and Ohio (Quinnipiac University).

Which Republican candidate would you vote for?

Georgia

  • Donald Trump – 34%
  • Marco Rubio 22%
  • Ted Cruz – 20%

Ohio

  • Donald Trump – 31%
  • John Kasich – 26%
  • Ted Cruz – 21%
  • Marco Rubio – 13%

Which Democratic candidate would you vote for?

Georgia

  • Hillary Clinton – 57%
  • Bernie Sanders – 29%

Ohio

  • Hillary Clinton – 55%
  • Bernie Sanders – 40%

Trump seems unstoppable at this point. With all the momentum of New Hampshire and South Carolina behind him, it looks likely that Trump will win the GOP nomination. Neither Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio seems capable of gaining enough momentum to surpass Trump.

This entire election has been a circus. Early on, Trump broke all the rules and completely dismantled the concept of political correctness. Instead of challenging Trump, his opponents have joined in on the craziness, and in the case of Cruz, he has even thrived on it.

For the Democrats, Bernie Sanders has a tough road ahead of him. He scored a respectable tie in Iowa, crushed Clinton in New Hampshire, and came very close to tying her in Nevada. South Carolina will not be favorable to Sanders and he isn’t polling strongly in some of the upcoming primary states.

However, for most of this election, Sanders has been a late riser and has relied on pre-primary momentum to help him surge in the polls. At this point, Clinton has everything to lose and her downtrends in the polls have been noticeable. If she wants to stand a chance against Sanders, she will need to win a few more primaries and paint herself as the ideal candidate, something she has struggled to do all election.
