Trump Gets Pummeled in New Jersey

The latest poll by Farleigh Dickinson has placed Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders well ahead of their Republican foe Donald Trump.

Head-to-Head Matchups

  • Hillary Clinton 48% – Donald Trump 37%
  • Bernie Sanders 57% – Donald Trump 33%

It looks like Americans are starting to wake up. Trumpomania was fun, but it isn’t a realistic election option. As we push closer to the conventions, Americans are starting to realize that the election is real and that they should support a candidate that doesn’t have a history of racism, sexism, and violence.

Trump has a lot of work to do if he wants to compete in the election. He will need to unify the Republican Party, win votes from independent and undecided voters, and he will need to find a way to court Sander’s angry supporters. The final task can also be accomplished if he can somehow convince Sander’s supporters to abstain from voting.

For Clinton, her unpopularity will be a major issue in this election. She should win without any issues, but voter apathy is always a problem for the Democrats and it will be no different this election. The moment she defeats Sanders, she will need to sit down with him and develop a strategy for winning over his supporters. If she can pull this off, the election should easily go in her favor.
