The latest on the presidential horse race.

Trump and Clinton Top the Fox News National Polls

The latest national poll by Fox News has concluded that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are at the top of their respective parties.

Which Republican candidate would you vote for?

  • Donald Trump – 26%
  • Ben Carson – 23%
  • Marco Rubio – 11%
  • Ted Cruz – 11%
  • Jeb Bush – 4%

Which Democratic candidate would you vote for?

  • Hillary Clinton – 56%
  • Bernie Sanders – 31%

Trump has regained his position at the top of the Republican Party. In Iowa and other recent polls, Ben Carson had toppled Trump and taken the lead. At this point, barring any huge errors, the Republican nomination will go to either Trump or Carson, and in the case where both candidates implode, Marco Rubio seems like a respectable backup option. Trump has toned down his rhetoric in recent interviews and in the last debate, and besides his media bullying, he is looking more and more like a normal Republican candidate that is pro-fiscal conservatism.

For the Democrats, Clinton is pulling away with the lead. Despite her tarnished reputation and her dishonesty, Clinton is the candidate to beat for the Democrats and it is likely that she will represent the party in 2016. Much of her success will hinge on whether or not she can convince voters to turn out and elect her as the next president. She is heavily relying on the gender card, similar to how President Barack Obama tapped into the race card in 2008. However, it remains to be seen if voters will fall for another historic presidency or if they are interested in selecting a useful candidate.
