Wisconsin primary voters prefer Trump, Clinton — Marquette poll

It's time to stop treating the election of the next president of the United States as a game show without serious consequences. For Republicans fighting for both the soul of their party and the White House the best choice is former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush

Folks who watch presidential races may wonder why poll numbers change when they do.

The new poll find tight races among Wisconsin voters in both parties' presidential primaries.

Desire for a third party is not strongly related to various measures of discontent, but instead divides more on modernist vs. traditionalist lines. Behind him are U.S. Sen.

Trump has a 41 percent disapproval rating among voters, mainly Democrats.

Trump stopped at a tree farm in Gilbert on Wednesday night where he picked up the endorsement of Lt. Gov. Henry McMaster, a former state attorney general and S.C. GOP party chair.

It's a dead heat between Sanders and Cruz, however, with each candidate garnering 50 percent from Snap Poll respondents.

For his part, Obama highly praised Clinton during the Politico interview this week, coming close to endorsing her. "I think that what Hillary presents", Obama said, "is a recognition that translating values into governance and delivering the goods is ultimately the job of politics, making a real-life difference to people in their day-to-day lives". Democrats vote on Feb. 27.

Retired Navy admiral Joe Sestak registered a slim lead over former Wolf administration official Katie McGinty, drawing 17 percent to her 13 percent. He has also come out in favor of a new financial-transactions tax. The thought of Donald Trump as president inspires high levels of public anxiety. None moved to O'Malley. And, since the beginning of 2016, it is quite obvious that the mainstream media has shifted strategy from attacking him, to ignoring him. Carson dropped to eight percent in the latest poll. Leaned Democrats are less confident in Sanders; that's particularly true of Clinton supporters.

A significantly smaller 15 percent named Sanders, and 26 percent said they did not know.

In summary, Sanders gained because he converted more Clinton voters than Clinton converted Sanders voters. Most states' deadlines for getting on the November ballot expire in a month or so.

Trump received 24 percent in the poll, with the next closest GOP opponent, Ted Cruz, garnering 14 percent support. Who wants that? The Democrats have had their turn, gotten everything they wanted, and it is a total failure. The irony of logic is that because the mainstream media is currently in lock-step support of a black man who is president, opposition to this politician's policies is interpreted by the media as "racism" and not political rivalry. Almost no one is moving toward him; many are moving away. Eugene V. Debs made a splash a century ago, running five times and topping out at 6 percent in his fourth try.

While "Establishment" Republican leadership is threatened by several "maverick" contenders for the GOP nomination, Dr. Carson is the true underdog amongst all of the candidates that will stand on the stage.

She praised Obama for having "led our country out of the Great Recession", and for negotiating a nuclear deal with Iran which she said represents a step toward stability and peace.

There are more than two parties, you know. Let's take a look, below.

Voter support in Iowa is much more fluid than polls make it appear. When Chris Cuomo of CNN asked Sanders whether he was willing to raise taxes to finance his proposed "Medicare for all" single-payer health-care system, the self-described socialist was admirably frank: "We will raise taxes". There are better Republicans in the field than Trump and Cruz.

Hillary Clinton, by contrast, is a dreary candidate.
