“I’m the only person who can beat Hillary Clinton,” lies Ted Cruz, part of his regular mantra of mistrusts and bullpuckey that he calls a Presidential campaign, on public stops he makes between his backroom deals to snag, steal, and suck up to GOP delegates. This despite the fact that John Kasich is the surprising winner against Clinton in most head-to-head polls, and this is the same guy who hasn’t even won a third of his battles against Trump himself. Cruz hopes if he says it enough times, people will believe him.
Sadly (for him!), they do not. In a new poll released by Rassmussen yesterday, Donald Trump beat Clinton in a head-to-head matchup nationally. According to the poll, Trump picks up more Democrats and Independents than Clinton picks up Republicans and Independents, and that makes the crucial difference.
From the press release:
“A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely U.S. Voters finds Trump with 41% support to Clinton’s 39%. Fifteen percent (15%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
This is the first time Trump has led the matchup since last October. Clinton held a 41% to 36% advantage in early March.
Trump now has the support of 73% of Republicans, while 77% of Democrats back Clinton. But Trump picks up 15% of Democrats, while just eight percent (8%) of GOP voters prefer Clinton, given this matchup. Republicans are twice as likely to prefer another candidate.
Among voters not affiliated with either major party, Trump leads 37% to 31%, but 23% like another candidate. Nine percent (9%) are undecided.”
That’s great news for Trump fans, even better news for America!
