New polls today

RealClear Politics Latest Polls.

Three new Florida polls give Trump a 17, 24 and 20 point lead over Rubio. I guess Rubio is going to take his loss instead of dropping out.

Two new Ohio polls give Kasich a 5-point lead and a tie with Trump.

The new North Carolina poll shows Trump ahead of Cruz 44 to 33, and Kasich ahead of Rubio 11 to 7. Rubio in fourth place there is more evidence that Rubio has suffered total collapse and the “establishment lane” voters are coalescing around Kasich. However, even if you add the Kasich and Rubio support together, the combined candidate still comes in third place, a whopping 15 points behind Cruz. It looks like a lot of the “establishment lane” support has evaporated and gone to Trump and Cruz.

  1. The GOPe will probably strive to ensure that the GOP candidate (Trump or Cruz) loses so that next time they can say, once again, “leave it to us to nominate a respectable, electable candidate… in 2016 you saw what happened when you didn’t…”

  2. I feel Ohio goes for Trump. The Ohio polls might be caught off guard if they aren’t picking the large Democrat and independent prole vote for Trump.

  3. Lion, thought you might enjoy the XO discussion on Trump VP:

  4. Have you seen these ads for Trump University? The prole meter is off the charts.

  5. So far Trump is losing in the national Clinton vs. Trump polls. I guess a lot could change between now and November, but people on the alt-right talk about Trump as if he is in the lead for the Presidential race. He’s not.

    I would prefer Trump over Clinton because he is not a war monger like that she-devil, and Obama. Also it is scary the kind of social engineering that Clinton could attempt, ie tilting the playing field even further in favor of women. Although as an expatriate, that doesn’t affect me very much. I had already been kicked in the face enough by the time I left, so I couldn’t imagine tolerating an even greater level of hostility.

    • What third-world tinpot do you currently live in, Shiva?

      People on the alt-right seriously think a white nationalist candidate can win the White House. They probably think the Stupendous Warlock of the Klu Klux Klan could win the White House. There is a fundamental lack of appreciation that, like it or not, people other than white male conservatives vote in our elections. A candidate who has zero attraction to non-whites, women, and moderates will lose. Period.

      • that’s silly, no one is unaware of the female or minority vote, that’s all the media ever talks about, but your ideas are way too defeatist. whites still make up 70% of the voting age population. with a sufficiently enthused white populace that could even be 75% of the actual voters. and trump has more appeal to blacks than most republicans. a winning trump coalition is definitely possible.

        high white turnout (~70% of the vote)
        overwhelming majority of blue collar and middle class whites (close to 70% of the 70%=48-49% of total vote)
        higher than normal black vote for a republican (20% of 12%-13%, or 2-3% of total vote)
        30% of rest (hispanics, asians, etc 30% of 16%), another 4-5% of total

        that’s about 54% to 57% of the popular vote.

        also in terms electoral college votes (what really matters), that formula would win him the great lakes states and a total of about 400 electoral college votes.

        it’s not a slam dunk, the democrats have major tailwinds from the demographic transformation of the country and electoral college advantages, but it’s still possible. And no other republican has a better chance.

    • At this time in 1980 Reagan was losing big to Carter while being treated as bad or worse than Trump by the media and the left. Carter was a better politician than Hillary and didn’t have several closets full of skeletons.

  6. it doesn’t matter if trump isn’t actually a white nationalist candidate if everybody thinks he is. liberals seriously believe he is actually a national socialist/fascist.
