The latest on the presidential horse race.

Trump Annihilates Massachusetts, Democrats Split

There are many common themes developing throughout the current election cycle. The latest round of polls by Emerson for Massachusetts have revealed that Donald Trump is obliterating his Republican opponents, while the Democrats remain locked in a tie.

Which Republican candidate would you vote for?

  • Donald Trump – 50%
  • Marco Rubio – 16%
  • John Kasich – 13%
  • Ted Cruz – 10%

Which Democratic candidate would you vote for?

  • Bernie Sanders – 46%
  • Hillary Clinton – 46%

As we begin to look at east coast states, Trump continues to dominate and this seems unlikely to change. Trump is a product of New York and will be able to appeal to voters with his “New York values” a lot better than Ted Cruz and his creepy demeanor. Trump understands what voters on the east coast want and he will be able to tailor a campaign plan that addresses them.

Cruz will have a difficult time in the coming weeks. He is heading into states that aren’t as heavily dominated by religion and he will not be able to rely on his preacher style campaign rallies.

It is entirely possible that both Marco Rubio and John Kasich outperform Cruz on the east coast as they are more in tune with what voters want.

The big showdown will be between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. Both candidates have won a primary, are polling well, and have a large voter base. Clinton will point to her time in New York, as Bill’s First Lady, and as Secretary of State as justification of her ability to be president, while Sanders will use his political record, long political career, and commitment to helping the lower and middle classes to help his cause.
