No different from the other candidates Trump already defeated.

Do you think anyone who is supporting Trump today will jump ship and end up voting for Hillary? I think the number of those people is insanely low. Are there people who support Bernie or Hillary today who you see jumping ship and voting for Trump? I think there a lot of people who will. Trump has not really lost any ground so far. It's unlikely he will going into the general election.

exactly, not sure if he gains enough to overtake Hillary but he will win more supporters for sure, his isolantionist/america first speech already got recognition from some of progressive commentators to be better than Hillary's. Some portion of Sanders voters will defect to Trump.

I wonder if Trump takes public financing. He doesn't exactly have a robust fundraising operation in effect at the moment.

thats the huge difference, it's a completely different angle from which each approaches the issue of regular folks losing out.

FWIW, that's not my quote you've got quoted above, TS.

Remember when Obama was going to take public financing?

New CNN poll out, Trump vs Hillary (to whatever extent these polls mean anything at this point):

Hillary +13 overall

+85 among Democrats
+10 among independents
+25 among women
+70 among minorities
+20 among people with college degree or more
+25 among voters <$50k/year
+25 among voters <55 years old
+45 among urban voters
+5 among suburban voters


Trump wins
Rural voters (+20)
Older than 55 (+2)
Making >$55k (+5ish)
No college (+10)
Whites (+10)
Men (close to 0)
Republicans (+75)

Not exactly encouraging, although I'd always take these polls with a heavy grain of salt. Certainly not exactly a ringing endorsement of the "Trump is going to do surprisingly well among minorities!" claim.

An outlier putting Trump ahead:

Clinton earns 71% of the black vote, 45% support among other minority voters but just 33% of whites.

For Cruz being disliked by everyone who's met him and how he looks, his wife is cute. She's definitely out of his league I think.

Poor woman

Their numbers don't tend to add up to 100%, maybe because they aren't specifying the "stay at home" percentages for each group.

When you don't have evidence to support your claims, cry bias.



CNN loves Trump. He's printing the news media money.

Kasich has mercifully withdrawn.

Kasich was so bland that Trump didn't even give him a nasty label.

 CNN  controversies here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CNN_controversies

 

 Just recently journalism run some research on it. http://www.journalism.org/2014/10/21/political-polarization-media-habits/

 

CNN love to run political coverage, or  political analysis or  on trump which is how they make a part of revenue.

 

When you have facts that CNN is running 322,762,018 participant poll, followed closely by multiple independent organizations for accuracy and transparency in journalism let me know how unbiased it is since you have facts on its transparency.
