Poll: Virginia Republicans don’t want Trump


2015-05-14_07_16_15_Welcome_to_Virginia_sign_on_southbound_Interstate_495_(Capital_Beltway)_in_McLean,_VirginiaVirginia is the latest state to indicate that its Republican voters would turn on Donald Trump if he is the GOP nominee:

Just 67 percent of Republicans said they would support Trump in November, while 90 percent of Democratic voters said they would support front-runner Hillary Clinton if she wins the nomination.

Twenty-nine percent of Republican primary voters said that if Trump is the party’s nominee, they will vote for the other party’s candidate, vote for a third-party candidate or sit out the election altogether. Only 9 percent of Democratic voters said they would do the same if Clinton is their nominee.

The poll also found that Clinton leads Trump in a hypothetical general election match-up in the state, 44 to 35 percent.

Virginia is a critical swing state in the general election. Indeed, in 2012 Mitt Romney appeared to be on the path to victory until Virginia’s votes started coming in; the state’s 13 delegates went to Barack Obama in both 2008 and 2012.

Virginia is not the only state that would turn on Trump in the general election. Significant numbers of Republicans in Michigan, Ohio, and deep-red Utah have indicated that they would vote Democrat if Trump is the GOP nominee.

    Truly amazing. If Trump is the nominee. Republicans will vote for Obama Lite Status Quo leftist Clinton. Even if you don’t vote at all, the Left wins. But if you’re okay with the way the government has been going left for the past century. You’re RINO’s anyway. I guess having foreigners taking you and your families and friends and millions of other peoples job’s is acceptable to you. That having more of your income taken out of your paycheck to pay for all the “free stuff” is okay and it doesn’t matter if it raises the price of everything you need to buy to live on. Are you all Deweyites?
