CNN Poll Shows Clinton and Sanders Both Beating Trump
The latest CNN/ORC poll shows both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders well ahead of Donald Trump in the general election. But if the GOP nominee is Rubio or Cruz, the race gets very close.
Washington (CNN)Both of the remaining Democratic candidates for president easily top Republican front-runner Donald Trump in hypothetical general election match-ups, according to a new CNN/ORC Poll.
But Hillary Clinton, who is well ahead in the Democratic race for the presidency, would likely face a stronger challenge should Florida Sen. Marco Rubio or Texas Sen. Ted Cruz capture the Republican nomination for president.
In the scenario that appears most likely to emerge from the primary contests, Clinton tops Trump 52% to 44% among registered voters. That result has tilted in Clinton’s favor since the last CNN/ORC Poll on the match-up in January.
