Polls Indicate Sanders Beats Trump by More than Hillary: Does the Democratic Party Care?

The following table provides a most powerful argument for the Democratic Party to consider choosing Bernie Sanders to run against Donald Trump. In polls looking at Clinton and Sanders facing Trump, the monthly average spread by which Sanders beats Trump is much larger than Hillary’s. For April, these results from Real Clear Politics suggest that while Clinton would beat Trump by 6 percentage points, Bernie would beat him by 13.6 points.

But don’t hold your breath. Bernie is an outsider with a “Socialist” label.

There is one other thing to note from the table. In recent months, while Trump’s popularity against his Republican contenders has increased, his losing spreads against both Clinton and Sanders have remained significant.

Of course, there is plenty of time yet for things to change before election day.
