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.

1. Well she is to the right of Obama

 

And Obama had stated that he would be a moderate Republican in the 1980's.

Makes sense to me.

9. Exactly.

 

Not sure why this party insists on not seeing the obvious alternative is badly needed.

Oh wait, yes I do.

2. Good! That will MORE than make up for the "Bernie-or-Bust" folks.

No more blackmail! They can take a hike!

7. Do tell

Thanks for confirming what we already knew -- that Hillary and her supporters are much more comfortable being aligned with Republicans than left leaning Democrats like myself.

6. Another poll showed ~10% of Bernie supporters voting for Trump. These crossovers may cancel

each other out so it will come down to turn out and what the independents do.

8. If I read this correctly:

19% of the 40% would go for Clinton. Thus,
only 8% of the registered Repugs would vote for
her.
Since both of the parties have about 28-30% of
all voters registered, and 12-15% of Dems would not
vote for her, this does not even out to her advantage.

However, since 40% or more are by now independents,
and we have no idea how they would vote, it remains
an open question.

11. Long way until Nov., but this bodes well

And should keep the GOP power brokers pushing for a contested convention. The Donald could be denied the nomination and, if so, he goes indie thus destroying the GOP's chances for the WH and handing the Senate to the Dems.

Polls like this are good

K & R

12. and they are likely 99% women. they may not admit it to their husbands, but Trump is not going to

 

get most womens' votes. He already lost them. And women show up to the polls.

14. Thats been the case all along, since she's a neocon.

I think that a much larger number of Republicans (and Democrats) wont vote for Hillary for similar reasons.
