Hillary Clinton Leads Donald Trump by Double Digits in New National Poll


But Trump, who dominated the GOP primaries by first running up his numbers among blue collar whites and then expanding beyond that economic demographic, has another problem that other GOP nominees didn't have.

They're not alone. A Pew Research Center poll last month found that 56 percent of registered Republican voters think that disagreements within the party will keep many from supporting Trump as its nominee while 38 percent say the party will unite behind him.

Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton leads Republican front-runner Donald Trump by double digits in a new CNN-ORC national poll as the 2016 race turns toward the general election. With only 933 left in the remaining contests, he will need to sway super delegates over to his side.

His comments on several networks came a few hours after Trump, once dismissed as a fringe contender, became all-but certainly the leader of the Republican Party into the fall campaign against Clinton.

Sanders vowed during a Sunday press conference that his supporters would not vote for Trump.

Some Republican leaders remain wary of Mr Trump and have insisted they could never support him, even in a face-off against Mrs Clinton. It's hard. I would be lying to you all if I said: 'Okay, this is going to be easy.

Indeed, Trump's first challenge will be uniting a Republican Party that has been roiled by his candidacy.

A new CNN/ORC poll puts Trump 13 points behind Hillary Clinton in a hypothetical general election match-up. He notes he already has business experience and tells MSNBC's "Morning Joe" he wouldn't want to have to resort to presidential executive orders to get things done. "She is a disaster and will be a disastrous president".

"In a potentially decisive and at times weird Midwestern showdown that Cruz had called "favorable" ground, Trump won a delegate haul that eased his path toward the Republican presidential nomination, raising questions about the future of the Texas senator's campaign".

Meanwhile, The Daily Show's Trevor Noah invited "an expert on brutal political campaigns" for "more perspective on how the (presidential) race might play out" - who turned out to be Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, the "doom and betrayal expert". Campaign officials had been told to prepare for Cruz to deliver "a very somber" speech Tuesday night in Indianapolis, according to one aide who spoke on the condition of anonymity to share internal discussions.

On Tuesday night after Donald Trump's victory in Indiana's primary, Senator Ted Cruz dropped out of the race. But aides said he made the decision to drop out early Tuesday evening, shortly after most polls in IN had closed. "We will continue to fight uphill and I think we still have a narrow path toward victory".

And nothing can make Republicans stand shoulder to shoulder more than the thought of having another Clinton in the White House. But the outcome will not slow the former secretary of state's march to the Democratic nomination. Superdelegates are Democratic Party insiders who can support the candidate of their choice, regardless of how their states vote. Cruz exits the race with 565, while Kasich has 152.
