A few months from now we might be looking at Trump vs. Hillary as the most likely choice for 2016…
Hillary has little realistic competition in Bernie Sanders, and Joe Biden does not seem to be prepared to run for a third time..
As for Trump.. he has a strong following by now.. and in the end, many on the right might very reluctantly have to end up supporting him… Fiorina & Carson are probably too narrow candidates and too much of a protest polling answer… Rubio & Bush could be too much controlled by the donors… so Trump will probably win the early states, especially NH and SC, but probably Iowa too.
So to the last point.. the general match-up… Hillary had a +20 lead vs. Trump this summer, but only a +2 or +3 during the last month..
Trump vs. Hillary..
Donald Trump leads in the race for the Republican presidential nomination in Connecticut but trails in matchups with top Democratic candidates, according to a new poll.
Trump is supported by 34 percent of registered Republicans in the state, followed by retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson with 14 percent and businesswoman Carly Fiorina at 11 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday morning.
