Trump Pulls Ahead in California

Donald Trump has pulled away with an early lead in the latest Landslide/NSON poll for California.

Which Republican candidate would you vote for?

  • Donald Trump – 38%
  • Ted Cruz – 22%
  • John Kasich – 20%
  • Marco Rubio – 10%

Even though the Democrats will win California, Trump should easily come away with a victory in the state. Neither Ted Cruz or John Kasich have much appeal in the state and Trump’s anti-Latino rhetoric will help him cement the racist vote.

Cruz may be able to appeal to Latino voters due to his last name, but any individual that understands his policies will be thoroughly turned off by his platform and will be more likely to vote for a Trump or Kasich.

The 10 percent of voters that chose Rubio will either avoid voting out of loyalty, turn to Trump, or splinter between Kasich and Cruz. Either way, this small fraction of votes will not make the difference and it will do very little to stop Trump’s momentum.
