Poll Context: Will Trump beat the Democratic Presumptive Nominee Hillary Clinton in November? Well there’s good news for Trump that on exit polls in West Virginia nearly half the Bernie Sanders supporters say they’ll switch to Trump is Hillary is the nominee.
The Hill elaborates:
Nearly half of the voters in the West Virginia Democratic primary who backed Bernie Sanderssay they would vote for Republican Donald Trump in the fall presidential election, according to exit polls reported by CBS News.
Forty-four percent of Sanders supporters surveyed said they would rather back the presumptive GOP nominee in November, with only 23 percent saying they’d support Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton. And 31 percent said would support neither candidate in the likely general election match-up.
Whoa. In a state where coal reigns, it would appear the Queen’s anti-coal comments — “We’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business” — may haunt her all the way to November.
