Trumped by Democrats

Donald Trump for President? Perhaps in America it could happen but it looks more like he will disrupt the Republican chances.

Trump is the leading Republican contender in polls but also the most opposed. And he lags behind all the leading Democrats in the latest Quinnipiac poll.

Favourability ratings (all voters):

  • Donald Trump 27 – 59
  • Hillary Clinton 40 – 51
  • Jeb Bush 43 – 42
  • Scott Walker 36 – 27
  • Joe Biden 49 – 37
  • Bernie Sanders 32 – 25

Republican voters for:

  • Donald Trump 20%
  • Scott Walker 13%
  • Jeb Bush 10%

Republican voters “would definitely not support”:

  • Donald Trump 30%
  • Chris Cristie 15%
  • Jeb Bush 14%

Jeb, the third Bush to try for the presidency, looks to be battling too.

Hillary Clinton also tops both the for and against but on quite different levels to Trump:

Democrat voters for:

  • Hillary Clinton 55%
  • Bernie Sanders 17%
  • Joe Biden 13%

Democrat voters “would definitely not support”:

  • Hillary Clinton 9%
  • Martin O’Malley 8%
  • Lincoln Chafee 8%

Match-ups (all voters) are interesting:

  • Clinton versus Trump 48% – 36%
  • Clinton versus Bush 41% – 42%
  • Clinton versus Walker 44% – 43%

I’m surprised Joe Biden is a serious contender but:

  • Biden versus Trump 49% – 37%
  • Biden versus Bush 43% – 42%
  • Biden versus Walker 43% – 43%

It’s only fifteen months and about 15 billion polls and dollars until the US election.

    Is DT in the throes of the DTs ? He seems insane these days.

    If he becomes president, there is something seriously wrong with that country. I must say that I’d find it hard to take someone called Jeb seriously-that name sounds like a hillbilly and not a public figure.

And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That’s how I saw it, and see it still.”

      – from Ronald Reagan’s farewell address

      Trump looks like a dollar democracy dunce.

    I would have to say that Reagan’s speech doesn’t stand up to scrutiny. It sounds all right, but it doesn’t mean much.

    Donald Trump cannot be a fool-people don’t make that kind of money if they’re fools-but he seems to be losing his mind. I’d be worried that he was going into a state of dementia. The things he’s saying are the sort of things that people say when they’re in the early stages of it !

      I can fully understand why someone would avoid military service-who would go to Vietnam if they could NOT go ?-but to publicly sneer at someone who did (even if one did privately consider him to be a fool) is a pathetic thing to do. It’s also a potential vote-killer, surely. His racist remarks are also pathetic. I did like the Mexican golfer girl who dismissed his remarks with a few of her own.

      It’s so unlikely that this clown would ever win the election ( one hopes) that one must wonder why he’s bothering.
