The latest on the presidential horse race.

Trump and Clinton Top Massachusetts

The latest poll by WBUR/MassINC has placed Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton at the top of their respective parties.

Which Republican candidate would you vote for?

  • Donald Trump – 40%
  • Marco Rubio – 19%
  • John Kasich – 19%
  • Ted Cruz – 10%
  • Ben Carson – 5%

Which Democratic candidate would you vote for?

  • Hillary Clinton – 49%
  • Bernie Sanders – 44%

Trump continues to dominate all Republican polls, including non-traditional states and the ones he is expected to win. The other candidates continue to slip in the standings, unable to penetrate Trump’s lead. At this point, he seems unstoppable and it is more than likely that he will win the GOP nomination.

Both Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, the only other legitimate candidates in the race, cannot gather enough support to even dent Trump’s campaign.

As for the Democrats, Hillary Clinton topped Bernie Sanders in this poll by a slim margin. Sander’s biggest challenge is Super Tuesday. If he can perform well this Tuesday, he may be able to steal the nomination from Clinton and head into 2016 as the Democrats candidate of choice.

For now, Sanders biggest challenge is winning over voters that are on the fence and those that are considering voting for Trump. If he can do this, he will pose a serious risk to the Clinton campaign and possibly win the nomination.
