USA Today National Poll: Bernie Slightly Stronger Than Hillary Against GOP


A poll released Wednesday by USA Today/Suffolf University shows that Vermont Socialist Bernie Sanders is stronger than Hillary Clinton when matched up against the four leading Republican candidates. Except for barely beating Ted Cruz, Bernie still loses against the other three. Hillary, however, loses to all four of her likely Republican rivals.

A big part of Hillary’s argument against Sanders is that she is more electable.

Against Hillary:

Donald Trump wins by +2 points,  45% to 43%.

Ted Cruz wins by +1 point, 45% to 44%.

Marco Rubio wins by +4 points, 42% to 46%.

John Kasich smashes Clinton by +11 points, 49% to 38%.

Against Bernie:

Trump wins by +1 point, 44% to 43%.

Cruz loses by -2 points, 42% to 44%.

Rubio wins by +4 points, 46% to 42%.

Kasich wins by +3 points, 44% to 41%.
