New York Times/CBS Poll: 74% of Republicans Don’t Support Cruz, 80% Don’t Support Kasich…

The New York Times / CBS have conducted a new national poll (full pdf below).  The results show candidate Donald Trump has gained an additional 11 points in the past 30 days and now leads with 46% support nationally.

74% of those polled refuse to support Ted Cruz and a full 80% of those polled refuse to support John Kasich.  When you keep in mind this poll is a selected NYT/CBS release, and when you consider this poll does not include independents, a person can reasonably presume the support for Donald Trump is factually much, much higher.

One of the internal poll results the media will refuse to highlight is how futile the #NeverTrump campaign effort has been.   The poll actually shows that more people refuse to ever support Ted Cruz than refuse to support Donald Trump. (see below)

(Via New York Times) The nationwide telephone poll was conducted March 17 to 20 on cellphones and landlines with 1,252 adults, of which 1,058 said they were registered voters, including 362 Republican primary voters and 388 Democratic primary voters. The margin of sampling error is plus or minus three percentage points for all adults; four points for all voters; six points for Republican primary voters; and six points for Democratic primary voters.

Among Democrats, doubts persist about Mrs. Clinton, with 40 percent of her own party’s primary voters saying she is not honest and trustworthy. She is viewed unfavorably by 52 percent of all voters, among the highest percentage since the question was first asked during the 1992 presidential race.

“I think she’ll say whatever she needs to to get elected, and what she says may not be what she’s planning to do,” said Patricia Lawrence, 55, a Philadelphia Democrat who is supporting Mr. Sanders. “I was concerned already when she was first lady, though I don’t know what it is. I just don’t know, and when we find out, it may be too late.” (read more)

    • Robert, she’s an idiot. She believes all the BS that the opposition has put out about Trump. I’m a woman and love Trump. Have always been a fan. I was born in NY so know what he is, what he is capable of doing and where he is coming from. His persona is his “brand”. You need it if you want to do business in NY. That being said, the crap she posted in her “letter to Trumpies” is plain BS. She is will follow LyingTed to the grave. Good for her. We are on the right side. Donald Trump is the man who loves the USA and will do what is right to make it the way it should be. Stand firm. I try to convert some but some you just have to let go. With this cheating scandal, we will see which way the dominos fall. I would bet they will stand by their man. Whatever. That’s one thing I tell people, I have no illusions about Trump, I know who and what he is but I still think he is the right and best choice to save the USA.

    I think we need to focus on the GOPe’s next line in the sand – Wisconsin. This state worries me because of the influence of Ryan. I read that the northern and western parts of the state are more pro-Trump, but the southern and eastern parts are more anti-Trump. Unfortunately, the latter are the more populous areas. Hoping Kasich and Cruz split the anti-Trump vote.

    But I really think Wisconsin is key.

        One method to this is public shaming. if a list of delegates is broadly publicized representing them and True Trump delegates can capture their local delegate vote at the convention – it’s possible the betrayal on a local level might be enough of a deterrent. Remember, a lot of these delegates are precinct chairs, and local elected officials who also have to deal with their own constituencies when they return home.

            I’m talking about having the communication apparatus in place DURING THE CONVENTION to inform the constituencies each delegate represents that their delegate is disenfranchising their vote so the constituents can start flooding their emails, phones etc allowing these delegates to understand there is a price to pay. And I doubt Donald will be – or should he be – polite to theft and subversion of democratic principles the GOP claims is the basis for their party.

            Maybe there are those who, like John Bolton’s father, aren’t allowed to switch parties because of their union membership but if that’s the case then they have bigger problems.

              Quite frankly I am glad I have moved to a state that has an open primary. I lived in Florida for a long time and refused to affiliate with either of the parties because I don’t always agree enough with any of the nominees to vote for them. At least now I didn’t have to change my affiliation to vote for a nominee, although I would have this year, even though it would bind me to them for a long time. At least now I can still be an independent and vote for a nominee, especially at a time when it is needed so badly.

    I heard Trump is going to release 5-10 names of people who would be his Supreme Court nominee pool and that he won’t go outside these names in selecting his nominee. Is that bait for Ted to make a deal to get his name added to the list or is it already too late.

        There is a major difference in Trump vs Clinton. Both Trump and Clinton have near 100% name recognition. Hillary because she was a former first lady and has been in the political discussion for over 20 years.Trump is well known because he is a celebrity and is arguably the most famous person in the world at this moment.

        Every candidate that overcame low polling numbers in March was not well known to the average general election voter (whom are low-information voters) or they are incumbents presidents. Lesser known candidates can improve their numbers as more voters learn about them. Incumbent presidents are an exception because they are hard to defeat and often most people have negative opinions of the president after the honeymoon period after they are elected.

        So what we have in Trump vs Clinton is a historical anomaly and Hillary has been defeating Trump very consistently in hypothetical match-ups and by pretty big margins. The couple polls that show Trump beating Clinton are by rather small margins.

        You can’t ignore these polls. I support Trump like everyone else here, but you guys need to realize that most likely Hillary will beat Trump. She will be very, very, hard to beat. Cruz would lose too.
