Poll: Clinton would lose to Rubio, Carson; beat Trump

rubio, trumpAccording to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton would lose a general election contest against Marco Rubio and Ben Carson, but would defeat Republican frontrunner Donald Trump:

Clinton would beat Trump by 10 points, 50-40 percent, thanks in part to independent and Hispanic voters, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll. The former secretary of State would also beat Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, 48-45, though that victory would be within the poll’s margin of error of 3.4 percent.

Up against Rubio or Carson, however, and Clinton struggles. She would lose to Rubio by 3 percent and barely loses to Carson by 1 percent in those hypothetical head-to-head general election match-ups.

Also in the poll, Rubio wins the independent voters vote over Clinton by 7 points, but then loses the Hispanic vote to her by 24 points. Furthermore, despite having the highest percentage of backing by female voters among GOP candidates, Clinton bests him in that demographic by 7 points (51 percent to 44 percent).

There’s still a ways to go until the Republican National Convention, but GOP officials would do well to carefully consider the best strategy to win back the White House — and it might mean not selecting Trump as their nominee.

    The only poll that counts is the general election in Nov. 2016. The selection of the Republican nominee is the one that will be scary though. If politically fixed and not citizen elected, our country will once again be further degraded and our constitutional dictated freedoms and rights thrown back into the gutter of socialism

      And do not disregard the fact that ALL elections will be fraught through and through with demon-crap fraud.

  • tnetcenter

    Every one of these so-called polls is BOGUS!!! The sample size (usually around 1000 respondents) is statistically IRRELEVANT! There is NO WAY a poll with a sample of 1000, can reflect the choices of 340 MILLION people.

    All the polls reflect is the desires of the LEFT-WING media — “Don’t nominate Trump, he can’t win against HiLIARy” Pick the GOPe choice – guaranteed to lose against any DemonKraut nominee!!

    These people literally think we are id10t’s!!

    • Craig Tarter

      And we’re all supposed to cut back on paper! Their brains are no more than paper. These polls are paper I presume. Perhaps they’re virtual?

    • wearyconservative1946

      “Pick the GOPe choice – guaranteed to lose against any DemonKraut nominee!!” And even if by chance one of these RINO repubs did win, we’d still be stuck with demon-crap policies.

    NBC polls reflect what NBC wants them to reflect.

  • Just1Saddletramp

    These polls must have been taken in the heart of Clinton country – NYC

  • dominke

    The enemy is trying very hard to corrupt the public into believing that Trump would lose to Clinton. Out of all candidate Trump will owe nothing to big money supporters. We can vote for freedom or live in total fear of having the head cut off, by these MONSTERS (MUSLIM)

  • You belive an nbc poll? Nothing But Communists.

    When my grandson told me in his Brooklyn public school when they start the pledge of allegience over the intercom. Some students turn their back on the flag others just slump down in their chairs. I have another grandson who went from Catholic pre school to public grammar school. His younger sister by two years is still in Catholic pre school. At dinner the girl led and said grace before meals. Her brother said to her you won’t be saying that when you get to public school. I asked him why not? He replied because I have been here 89 days and not one prayer has been said. I asked him do they say the Pledge of Allegience? he stuck out his chest and proudly said. Yes we do.

    I said let me hear you say it. He starts I pledge allegience to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands one nation under God with liberty and

    (he pauses to remember the rest and his little sister shouts) deliver us from evil Amen.

PLEASE DON’T TELL ME CRUZ IS A GREAT DEBATER. WE NEED A PRESIDENT WITH A LOUISVILLE SLUGGER. HILLARY WILL BEAT CRUZ. IN ORDER FOR CRUZ TO BECOME NUMBER ONE HE HAS TO BOW TO THE RNC. UNLESS THE RNC AND DNC USE CRUZ TO DESTROY TRUMP THEN THEY DESTROY CRUZ. RUSH LIMBAU’S ENDORSEMENT AND BACK PATTING SAYING I KNEW IT, IS TOTAL BS.

    Personally hope it’s the justice dept. beats Hillary Clinton !

  • Obtruder

    The reality is that Trump also has a HUGE following from none other than Democratic Blue Collar voters.
    The DNC has also been very neglectful towards its own blue collar voting block, especially in several Midwestern swing states.
    It would not surprise me if Trump researched all of this before jumping into the race just like he researches all of the angles before he acquires a new real estate holding.
