Trump Falls to Both Clinton and Sanders
The latest general election poll by NBC News/WSJ had Donald Trump losing to both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.
- Hillary Clinton 46% – Donald Trump 43%
- Bernie Sanders 54% – Donald Trump 39%
Trump demonstrated two vastly different performances in this poll. Lucky for Trump, he will more than likely be facing Clinton in the general election, an opponent he tends to poll a lot stronger against. In most recent polls, Trump and Clinton have come close to tying several times and the political deadlock doesn’t look like it will change anytime soon.
Sanders is an attractive candidate and better embodies the progressive movement than his Democratic opponent Clinton. However, he looks incapable of locking down the nomination and Clinton’s superdelegate lead is far too strong for him to overcome at this point.
Clinton will beat Sanders, but her opponent’s stubbornness will keep him in the race all the way until the Democratic National Convention in July. Because of this, Clinton will be forced to focus her efforts on Sanders and not Trump. With the election coming closer, Clinton needs to devise a strategy to take Trump on and to not get sucked into his low class politics if she wants to win and appear professional.
