PPP National Poll: Clinton 54% Sanders 36%


The new national poll from PPP is out, and Clinton leads Sanders by 18 points:
On the Democratic side Hillary Clinton continues to have a resounding lead with 54% to 36% for Bernie Sanders. Clinton leads within every gender, race, and age group except younger voters and her supporters are also more committed- 84% say they will definitely vote for her compared to 61% who say the same for Sanders. Democrats generally perceive Clinton to be a moderate- 45% think she is compared to 37% who think she's a liberal, and 9% who think she's a conservative. Among Clinton's own voters 53% think she's a moderate to 36% who think she's a liberal, so to her own base being a moderate is not a bad thing. 67% of voters consider Sanders to be a liberal to 13% who think he's a moderate, and 10% who think he's a conservative.
Did you catch that last part? 10% of all Democrats and Sanders' own supporters think he's a conservative (see pg 42). That simply defies all logic...but it might explain why some of his supporters might vote for Trump when Clinton is the nominee.

And check out how much more committed Hillary supporters are compared to Bernie (84%-61%)!

Anyway, this 18-point margin matches last week's result from Monmouth, suggesting that the race is settling as we enter the home stretch.

Bottom line: No magical bird is going to change the minds of our nation's Democratic voters.

  1. The bird thing was cute. But Hillary will run the country with kindness and compassion, not a wing and a prayer.

    1. In some cultures birds coming close to people are a sign of death.

  5. Unfortunately this poll isn't the headline - it's that she losing ground to Sanders among men, women, this group, that group. She just can't catch a break with the media. Though I don't put much stock in polls, this one is good news, and we need some good news! Can't wait until she wraps this up and we can celebrate the first woman Democratic nominee - Hillary Clinton! #ImWithHer

    1. Seems to e that even MSNBC's ads about their coverage of the election is an ad for Bernie.

  6. That bird had a message alright: "Dude you are just embarrassing yourself. Get a clue!" But since Bernie is just as out of touch with the critters in the animal kingdom as he is with the average voter he failed to catch on. Naturally.
