POLITICAL SHOCK: Trump Could Win It All. Dem Defection – 20% Are Now for Trump

Holy landslides, Batman! Even US News is now reporting that Hillary Clinton is in serious doodoo politically. 20% or more of Democrats are defecting to Donald Trump. That’s how much they are fed up with the Hildabeast. That’s if you can believe this particular poll… I have heard that it is north of 30% for Trump. A Trump/Cruz ticket will absolutely rock the political landscape. They will draw voters from every walk of life and from all political persuasions. I’m sure Hillary has seen this and is literally having a meltdown over it. So much for the presidency cakewalk Clinton had envisioned. That was before The Donald.

Donald Trump

From US News:

So if Donald Trump proved the political universe wrong and won the Republican presidential nomination, he would be creamed by Hillary Clinton, correct?

A new survey of likely voters might at least raise momentary dyspepsia for Democrats since it suggests why it wouldn’t be a cakewalk.

The survey by Washington-based Mercury Analytics is a combination online questionnaire and “dial-test” of Trump’s first big campaign ad among 916 self-proclaimed “likely voters” (this video shows the ad and the dial test results). It took place primarily Wednesday and Thursday and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percent.

Nearly 20 percent of likely Democratic voters say they’d cross sides and vote for Trump, while a small number, or 14 percent, of Republicans claim they’d vote for Clinton. When those groups were further broken down, a far higher percentage of the crossover Democrats contend they are “100 percent sure” of switching than the Republicans.

Trump’s first ad resonated with a wide swath of the electorate. You could just feel Americans tuning in and turning to Trump. About 25 percent of Democrats “agree completely” that it raises some good points, with an additional 19 percent agreeing at least “somewhat.” Mercury CEO Ron Howard, a Democrat whose firm works for candidates in both parties and corporate clients, concedes, “We expected Trump’s first campaign spot to strongly appeal to Republican Trump supporters, with little impact – or in fact negative impact – on Democratic or independent voters.” Howard continues, “The challenge to Hillary, if Trump is the nominee and pivots to the center in the general election as a problem-solving, independent-minded, successful ‘get it done’ businessman is that Democrats will no longer be able to count on his personality and outrageous sound bites to disqualify him in the voters’ minds.” On to the caucuses and we’ll see how he does there. I still think Cruz will win Iowa… but either way I’m cool with this. If Trump and Cruz join forces, you could see a landslide that will even outdo Reagan’s. Good times.
