Clinton Extends Lead Over Trump to Double Digits in Virginia

The latest Virginia poll by Roanoke College has placed Hillary Clinton 16 points ahead of Donald Trump.

Which presidential candidate would you vote for?

  • Hillary Clinton – 48%
  • Donald Trump – 32%
  • Gary Johnson – 8%
  • Jill Stein – 3%

Clinton has once again trounced Trump. While Trump started regaining in the polls this week, a disastrous appeal to African-American voters made him look like a racist fool and he is starting to suffer in the polls once again.

For the first time in a while, Clinton made an appearance in the media, showing up for an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, where she joked about her health with Jimmy Kimmel. The segment was hilarious, lighthearted, and exactly what Clinton needs at this point in the election. She knows that most voters see her as the only candidate and she continues to play up that fact.

On the other side of things, Trump called on African-American voters to vote for him, telling them that they had nothing to lose and that their cities were “war zones.” Adding to the hilarity, these speeches were typically delivered to white crowds.

So long as Clinton continues to play it safe, she should be able to easily defeat Trump in November. Trump seems to always make a fool of himself at every single rally he hosts and that trend doesn’t seem like it will change anytime soon.

Clinton Ties Trump in Virginia, Slaughters Him in California

The latest round of surveys for Virginia (Roanoke College) and California (KABC/SurveyUSA) have resulted in a tie between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump and a Trump slaughter.

Virginia

  • Hillary Clinton – 38%
  • Donald Trump – 38%

California

  • Hillary Clinton – 52%
  • Donald Trump – 38%

Clinton is slowly building up momentum in the polls and proving that she should be able to kill Trump in the general election. The Democrats are in a strong position in this election, and as unpopular as Clinton is, she is a more sensible choice than Trump.

The sooner Clinton can put Sanders down or find a way to bring him into the fold, the sooner she can move past her primary strategy and start focusing on her general election strategy.

Trump’s best chance of winning is to unify the GOP, convince independent voters, and find a way to tap into Bernie Sander’s angry supporters or hope that they abstain. Even though Sanders has lost, he has a lot of supporters who will be looking for a new candidate. Democratic Party experts believe they will fall into line, but the overall youthfulness of Sander’s supporters makes it hard to predict their allegiances.

Trump Takes Virginia, Georgia, Florida, and Michigan, Loses Texas

Thursday brought a slew of polls for the Republican Party, many of which frontrunner Donald Trump dominated in.

Trump came out on top in Virginia (Monmouth), Georgia (TEGNA/SurveyUSA), Florida (Quinnipiac), Michigan (FOX 2 Detroit/Mitchell), and tied Ted Cruz in Texas (TEGNA/SurveyUSA).

Virginia

  • Donald Trump – 41%
  • Marco Rubio – 27%
  • Ted Cruz – 14%
  • John Kasich – 7%

Georgia

  • Donald Trump – 45%
  • Marco Rubio – 19%
  • Ted Cruz – 16%
  • Ben Carson – 8%

Florida

  • Donald Trump – 44%
  • Marco Rubio – 28%
  • Ted Cruz – 12%

Texas

  • Ted Cruz – 32%
  • Donald Trump – 32%
  • Marco Rubio – 17%
  • John Kasich – 6%

Michigan

  • Donald Trump – 41%
  • Marco Rubio – 19%
  • Ted Cruz – 16%
  • John Kasich – 11%

If you are a Trump supporter, it’s time to get giddy. Not only is Trump dominating in every major poll, he is topping his opponents in their home states. On top of that, he is also winning important primaries and looks good heading into Super Tuesday. At this point, Trump is unstoppable and he will more than likely become the GOP nominee, barring a catastrophic disaster of unpredictable proportions.

Both Marco Rubio and Cruz are fighting hard to stay alive, but poll by poll their chances evaporate and supporters swell to Trump’s camp. Voters aren’t interested in the robotic establishment drone that is Rubio and they certainly aren’t interested in the tired old rhetoric of Cruz.

For most voters, Trump is a breath of fresh air and is committed to smashing the status quo that currently exists in the American political climate. He doesn’t care about political correctness, he openly hates on immigrants, threatens to deport them, has known white supremacists following him, uses course language, and embodies what Cruz called “New York values.”

To undecided supporters, Trump provides them with an opportunity to try something different and to vote in a candidate that no one can accurately predict what he will do when he gets in office.

Get ready America, a Trump led GOP is becoming an unavoidable reality.
