Bombshell Poll: Nearly 20% Of Republicans Will Vote For Hillary Clinton If Trump Wins

Bombshell Poll: Nearly 20% Of Republicans Will Vote For Hillary Clinton If Trump Wins
By Jason Easley on Mon, Apr 25th, 2016 at 4:57 pm
A new Suffolk University poll has found that 19% of Republicans say they will support Hillary Clinton if Donald Trump wins the Republican nomination.

A new Suffolk University poll has found that 19% of Republicans say they will support Hillary Clinton if Donald Trump wins the Republican nomination.

The poll contained some numbers that should terrify Republicans. 40% of Republicans polled said that they would not support the party’s nominee if Donald Trump wins. 25% of the anti-Trump Republican vote would consider voting for a third party candidate. 19% of the never Trump Republicans would vote for Hillary Clinton, and 18% would stay home and not vote at all. By gender, 10% of men, and 9% of Republican women would vote for Clinton over Trump. 18% of very likely Republican general election voters would support Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump.

Where oh where could the elusive truth be?

3. Yep. Which is why Hillary can basically ignore Sanders' demands

for the platform, just as she doesn't have to worry about appeasing the zealous Bernie-or-bust crowd.

75% of Sanders voters say they'll vote for Hillary. The remaining 25% represent under 10% of the Democratic electorate. 20% of Rs crossing over to vote for Hillary more than doubles any votes Hillary will not get from the BoB crowd. And it's a net gain of 40 points as that 20% is subtracted from Trump's vote.

5. I agree

 

No way in hell does Hillary have to bend over backwards to appease Sanders dead enders.

She will have all the votes she needs in the general!

17. And at least some of the 10%

will return to vote for Clinton once they realize their tantrum was useless and...well, Trump, for Pete's sake.

I also expect the 20% to rise. My mother already went from Trump-neutral to Trump-loathing and she's pretty attentive to the news. As others hear from him, they'll dislike him.

16. I had a conversation with a person I had contact regarding business transaction.

He knew I am a Democrat because I do work for the Democratic Party that deal with his company.

Anyway, he stated to me that he is a Republican and he doesn't know what he is going to do this election. He is not happy. This is in Indiana.

31. I have a lot of sane "country club" Republican friends

100% tax-focused, not Tea Party or Religious Right types. All okay to talk politics with because they're not fanatics. None will vote Trump. They say they'll vote Hillary of not at all. 'Not at all' actually works better for me because it keeps them home and keeps them from votifing down ballot for Toomey here in PA.

35. "Not at All" could also mean

They won't vote for President but the rest of the ballot.

It would be better though if they stayed home.

22. That doesn't suprise me at all. They would do the same with Bernie. They don't want Trump.

It sorta negates the Bernie supporters declaring to hold their votes if they don't get what they want. Which is basically to pretend Bernie won and do everything he wants. If Republicans are switching sides to Hillary, the Purists aren't needed.

23. Hope it's more than 20%...

Trump is far too dangerous and filled with hate to hold on to 80% of the R party.

Although I guess a huge chunk will just stay home. (And there goes the down ticket races... )

36. I think that will be the most common scenario for Indy and smart gop men.

Anyone with any money or pension or half a brain cannot vote for fRump.

Hillary's already been vetted, they won't find anything new on her. And she won't make any fatal mistakes.

And even if women (like me) don't like Hillary, we can't help wanting a woman in the white house.

It's all over. The only thing we don't know is how all the 'news' channels will fill the next 5 months of airtime.

32. So the net gain would be MORE than 20%, right?

If you take-away from one candidate and add to another, then the difference is greater than what was added.

Hillary has TOTALLY got this!
