The New York Times / CBS have conducted a new national poll (full pdf below). The results show candidate Donald Trump has gained an additional 11 points in the past 30 days and now leads with 46% support nationally.
74% of those polled refuse to support Ted Cruz and a full 80% of those polled refuse to support John Kasich. When you keep in mind this poll is a selected NYT/CBS release, and when you consider this poll does not include independents, a person can reasonably presume the support for Donald Trump is factually much, much higher.
One of the internal poll results the media will refuse to highlight is how futile the #NeverTrump campaign effort has been. The poll actually shows that more people refuse to ever support Ted Cruz than refuse to support Donald Trump. (see below)
(Via New York Times) The nationwide telephone poll was conducted March 17 to 20 on cellphones and landlines with 1,252 adults, of which 1,058 said they were registered voters, including 362 Republican primary voters and 388 Democratic primary voters. The margin of sampling error is plus or minus three percentage points for all adults; four points for all voters; six points for Republican primary voters; and six points for Democratic primary voters.
Among Democrats, doubts persist about Mrs. Clinton, with 40 percent of her own party’s primary voters saying she is not honest and trustworthy. She is viewed unfavorably by 52 percent of all voters, among the highest percentage since the question was first asked during the 1992 presidential race.
“I think she’ll say whatever she needs to to get elected, and what she says may not be what she’s planning to do,” said Patricia Lawrence, 55, a Philadelphia Democrat who is supporting Mr. Sanders. “I was concerned already when she was first lady, though I don’t know what it is. I just don’t know, and when we find out, it may be too late.” (read more)
