Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday has confirmed that Americans are increasingly “feeling the Bern.” The poll reveals that in all scenarios of a Bernie Sanders v.s. GOP match up, Bernie wins every time. In a race between Donald Trump and Sanders, the Democratic Socialist runs away with 49 percent to Trump’s 41 percent.


“Against Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Sanders leads 44 percent to 43 percent. He also beats Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) by 10 percentage points and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson by 6 points.

Fifty-nine percent of voters also say Sanders is honest and trustworthy — placing him well above former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, his chief rival for the Democratic nomination, and above all top Republican candidates tested in the poll.”

Unfortunately, Hillary Clinton’s lead over Sanders has widened by 12 points, leading 60 percent to 30 percent.

There are of course still 11 months until the election. Polls will continue to roll in with varying results both positive and negative, but this one showing that Bernie has a proven advantage over the GOP will hopefully encourage unsure voters that he has what it takes to defeat the conservative party.
