Bring on the General Election! Clinton Leads Trump by 13 Points in Florida
After 25 years of incoming fire from the right and a year of misleading smears from the left, Hillary Clinton nonetheless appears poised for a big electoral college win against Donald Trump in six months.
But really, all she needs to do is carry the "blue wall" plus Florida...where right now she's ahead of Donald by a rather amazing 13 points!
Check out the two little yellow boxes: 15% of Republicans would vote for Clinton over Trump and Florida Hispanic voters as a whole are starting to ditch the GOP big time.
If this plays out in November (and there's no reason to think it won't), it would certainly mean another Clinton administration, but also...possibly...the beginning of Florida's run as a lean-Democratic state for several general elections to come.
And if Florida transitions into being a reliably blue state...just when should Republicans expect to ever win the White House again? Sometime in the 2050s maybe?
But hey...it's still not too late for Bernie to flip a few superdelegates this summer and save us from this awful fate, am I right?
