A Quinnipiac University poll shows Hillary Clinton leading Sanders by 12 points. It also shows that 54% of all voters overall (Democrats and Republicans alike) say they “would definitely not” vote for Donald Trump — and 43% of all voters overall say they “would definitely not” vote for Clinton.
But that is only one poll. A new CNN/ORC poll shows that Clinton's lead over Bernie Sanders has been steadily narrowing as the Democratic primary progresses. Currently this poll shows Clinton leading Sanders by only 7% (Clinton at 51% to Sanders at 44%). Also notice from the poll (screenshots below) how Bernie's enthusiasm ratings have gone UP while Hillary's have continually gone DOWN — and is also lower than Bernie's. You don't see that being reported by the corporate cable news stations. Also, according to this poll, Sanders beats the GOP forerunner Donald Trump by much wider margins as well. The cable news stations (like CNN and MSNBC) don't like to mention polls showing Bernie Sanders doing well — if every at all, unless Bernie Sanders himself reminds us while being interviewed (FYI: Here's what Bernie says about the corporate media in 98 seconds.)
Based on an average of 6 polls, Real Clear Politics shows Clinton leading Sanders by 9.6% (Clinton at 51.3% to Sanders at 41.7%).
And the HuffPost Pollster (currently tracking 294 polls from 30 pollsters) shows Hillary's lead over Bernie has narrowed to 10.2% (Clinton at 51.3% to Sanders at 41.1%). Check out their chart below, and notice the continuing upward track for Bernie Sanders. The longer he runs, and the better more people get to know him, the more popular he becomes. Hopefully, by the time California votes, these polls will be a little more favorable for Bernie.
Of course, based on all the online polls (and not these corporate sponsored surveys), Bernie Sanders overwhelmingly defeated Hillary Clinton by HUGE margins in every single online poll. It's just a shame that the actual votes thus far don't represent what we see in these polls (which is also odd). But keep the faith, it's not over.
And keep in mind: Bernie Sanders has been competing against the most powerful political machine in history that the world has every known! Not bad for a virtually unknown candidate from a year ago; whereas the Clintons have been well-known world-wide for decades!
* I can almost predict that, IF Hillary Clinton wins the Democratic nomination (and/or later wins the general election), millions of Americans will have a severe case of "buyer's remorse." So don't say I never warned you ;)
