Here is why a vote for the Donald is a vote for Shrillary:
Both of the remaining Democratic candidates for president easily top Republican front-runner Donald Trump in hypothetical general election match-ups, according to a new CNN/ORC Poll.
But Hillary Clinton, who is well ahead in the Democratic race for the presidency, would likely face a stronger challenge should Florida Sen. Marco Rubio or Texas Sen. Ted Cruz capture the Republican nomination for president.
In the scenario that appears most likely to emerge from the primary contests, Clinton tops Trump 52% to 44% among registered voters. That result has tilted in Clinton’s favor since the last CNN/ORC Poll on the match-up in January.
But when the former secretary of state faces off with either of the other two top Republicans, things are much tighter and roughly the same as they were in January.
That is, Cruz or Rubio would win in a tight race.
All of these matchups would likely be less tight by the time we get to November. The media will have no trouble reducing Trump to an object of derision and contempt in the eyes of 80% of the public before the general election. But if the GOP runs a serious candidate, it will be harder to deflect attention from Shrillary’s legal problems and character flaws.
Choose wisely, Super Tuesday voters.
