Poll shows Sanders edging in on Clinton, Trump leads GOP pack
Bernie Sanders is closing the gap on Hillary Clinton nationally, according to a new poll from Quinnipiac University.
Clinton has 44 percent of Democratic voters, Sanders has 42 percent, and 11 percent haven’t made up their minds.
Donald Trump still leads the GOP pack at 31 percent, followed by Ted Cruz at 22 percent, and Marco Rubio at 19 percent. Yet 30 percent of party members say they would refuse to support Trump.
When it comes to strength in a general election, Sanders and Rubio have the best chances of winning — assuming former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg doesn’t enter as an independent, according to the poll. It finds that Bloomberg’s entry would hurt Sanders in a general election more than anybody.
