Poll Shows Bernie Sanders Would Crush Donald Trump In A 2016 Presidential Match Up

A new Quinnipiac University poll found that Bernie Sanders would crush Donald Trump in a potential 2016 general election contest.

According to Quinnipiac University:

– Clinton thumps Trump 48 – 36 percent. She gets 41 percent to Bush’s 42 percent and gets 44 percent to Walker’s 43 percent.

– Biden tops Trump 49 – 37 percent. He gets 43 percent to Bush’s 42 percent and ties Walker 43 – 43 percent.

– Sanders beats Trump 45 – 37 percent. Bush edges Sanders 44 – 39 percent and

– Walker slips past Sanders 42 – 37 percent.

– Trump has the worst favorability rating of any Republican or Democrat, a negative 27 – 59 percent among all voters, with Clinton getting a negative 40 – 51 percent score, her worst ever.

Sanders also posted a new high approval rating of 32%, and the constant negative Republican and media attacks have taken a toll on Hillary Clinton who now has a net (-20) rating on the question of honesty and trustworthiness. In contrast, Sen. Sanders has a net (+18) rating on honesty and trustworthiness.

Bernie Sanders was not supposed to be a serious presidential candidate, but the senator from Vermont would defeat the current Republican leader, and he runs within five points of the other top Republican candidates. The poll confirms that Democrats have the top two candidates in either party. Clinton still beats Sanders by wide margin among Democrats nationally (55%-17%), but the media spent years denying Sanders the respect that he deserves, but the numbers are proving that he is a national political force.

One of the main goals of the Sanders campaign is to build a national populist movement that can take back the government from the Koch brothers and their oligarchic allies. Donald Trump is the embodiment of the entitled billionaires that Bernie Sanders is campaigning against. The poll demonstrates the power of the Sanders grassroots populist message.

The success of the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign reflects the nation’s move left. Sanders would beat the billionaire, as the American people want a president who will speak for them instead of a reality television star who is running for president because he is “really rich.”

  1. If true- it would not particularly come as a surprise.

    Alienating nursing mothers is not a sound political move.

  2. Dj, I think you may or may not fail to take into account that it is very early in the race and Bernie Sanders has the momentum on his side. All of these polls are very fickle and unreliable. I think as the campaign progresses Bernie’s momentum will only escalate as the lame stream media has no choice but to cover him. Bernie’s message and vision is resonating with the people which will only accelerate.

  3. And this is with Sanders getting almost no media coverage. I’m convinced the debates are going to make a huge difference in these polls.

  4. HATRED: The Republicans’ Core Problem
    Wise people have always told us of the perils of Hatred: that it is all-consuming, like a wolf inside the hater, gnawing away from the interior.

    “Wrath,” says Shakespeare, makes one “Deaf.”

  5. You really cant be serious? What exactly is media coverage? Just this Sunday he was on Meet the Press. I posted where he shot Chuck Todd down in another thread. How many times have I read that us liberals don’t watch the MSM we get our news from the blogs. Well excuse me but on the liberal blogs its feel the Bern 24/7. Hell the liberal blog with the most readership Daily Kos, the readers are attacking the founder of his site

    My point is this: When Sanders do get coverage and talk about his vision he will have some pushback. He is already losing among the real base of the Democratic party and the more he talks about economic issues in trying to bring in the so called Reagan Democrats he is really missing the point because it was not economics that drove those white voters to the republicans it was racial and cultural issues. And that will be his conundrum. How will bring those people into his base without pissing off the true base of the Democratic party.

  6. So what you are saying all Politian’s evolve when push comes to shove. LMBAO the next time someone post Clinton is a phony because she says this now but look at what she said in the past

  7. The public is fed up with all politicians. Trump would beat Bernie because Trump is not a politician. Hillary vs. Trump would be close because Hillary has more general election appeal.

  8. Wtf!!! I have no idea what you are talking about but I will try to answer without the benefit of meth. Who has more appeal? I don’t know I just look at the facts on the ground. Right now SOS Clinton is beating everyone according to the polls. Sen. Sanders is beating all republicans according to the polls. SOS Clinton is beating Sen. Sanders according to all the polls. So it is what it is
