This is will go down as the most amazing and unusual political campaign for the presidency in American history. Matt Drudge’s Super Poll, conducted over the past 18 hours, will become a permanent part of this process.
The results of his Super Poll, as of this writing, are nothing less than astounding.
In short they show Donald Trump is still the one to beat for candidates on either side; but Bernie Sanders cannot be ignored. They prove the presidential dreams of both Republican Ted Cruz and Democrat Hillary Clinton are over.
With approximately 1.1 million votes cast, the huge loser is Democrat Hillary Clinton who despite being the favorite in all national polls has thus far seen her votes translate into .9%, a total putting her in 11th place. There is no enthusiasm whatsoever, for Clinton’s campaign.
The big loser is Republican Ted Cruz who has seen his votes translate into 19% which is good for third place but far behind the contest’s very big winner Socialist/Democrat Bernie Sanders. This blows away any argument that Cruz can win a general election. He can’t.
Sanders has thus far pulled a very very impressive number of votes that translates into 31% of the total for second place. This indicates the Republican establishment, the media and the Consultant Class are not the only ones fearful of losing their free ride. Sanders has tapped into the ever present reservoir of greed and resentment to be found in any industrial society. He must be taken seriously and defeated.
While no one could have expected the results for these three, first place in the poll is not surprisingly held by Republican businessman Donald Trump. Trump’s numbers at this writing show him getting 378K votes and holding a shockingly small lead of 2 ½% over Sanders.
The wild ride is just beginning. Trump has to redouble his efforts and retool his attacks toward Sanders and forget about Cruz and Clinton. They are done for.
