The Domination Continues

Warning: If your name is not Hillary Clinton and you're running for president, the brand-new NBC/WSJ poll has some really bad news for you.
Hillary Clinton is leading her nearest Democratic competitor by a whopping 60 points, and she holds the early general-election advantage against the top Republican White House contenders, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.
Seventy-five percent of national Democratic primary voters favor Clinton in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination - compared with 15 percent who pick Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., four percent who choose former Sen. Jim Webb, D-Va., and two percent who select former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley.
And don't for a second think that the domination will stop if you aren't in the Democratic Party.
Looking ahead to the general election, Clinton also leads Bush by eight points (48 percent to 40 percent), Rubio by 10 points (50 percent to 40 percent) and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker by 14 (51 percent to 37 percent).
Hillary is running an incredible campaign, Democrats are happily rallying behind her, and it also looks like she's going to crush the Republican nominee on Election Day 2016.

That's the situation, and the handy graphic below via WSJ sums it up nicely.

  1. What's so encouraging to me is that I don't see any mistakes Hillary or her campaign have made so far. And she's only now starting to ratchet things up. There will undoubtedly be tough days along the way, but I love the way this campaign is vintage Hillary - compassionate, tough, dogged, smart and pragmatic. Hillary also is inspirational in a very nonflashy way and just flat-out exudes leadership and competence. She is EXACTLY what we need in a president!

  2. What has happened here is that they have taken Biden out the polling, and she is the second choice of Biden voters. Still, you gotta love that 75% number. That has to be unprecedented.

  3. On Morning Joe the host was totally dismissing this poll (he couldn't ignore it b/c it IS his network after all). He said it doesn't com[port with other polls--what other polls? It comports via state polls in WI and FL with Hillary beating Walker and Bush.

    1. Yeah, Joe dismissed this poll and predicted Jeb winning basically everything...even New Mexico! I guess because he speaks Spanish? Don't worry Joe...I've got the tape handy! We'll be watching it again.
