New national poll shows Bernie Sanders with a double-digit lead over Trump in hypothetical matchup

In the latest national poll released this Thursday night, Hillary Clinton still leads presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump by single digits (6 points) among registered voters in a hypothetical matchup.

The poll comes up against two other national surveys which showed Trump having a slight lead over Clinton.

From The Hill:

The latest poll continues to show that Bernie Sanders, Clinton’s Democratic rival, has a bigger lead over Trump. In a hypothetical matchup, Sanders leads Trump by 13 points, 51 to 38 percent.

Both Trump and Clinton remain deeply unpopular among voters, despite Trump status as his party’s presumptive nominee and Clinton holding a huge delegate lead over Sanders.

The survey’s results show that 55 percent of registered voters view Trump unfavorably compared to 26 percent who hold a favorable view, while 52 percent view Clinton unfavorably, compared to 31 percent who approve.

Sanders’ favorability ratings are 41 percent, as opposed to 33 percent who view him unfavorably, making him the only candidate in the race whose positive ratings outweigh the negative.

Additionally, 8 out of 10 Republicans think the GOP should rally around Trump even if they don’t agree with his positions on the issues.

The survey interviewed 1,300 adults, including 1,109 registered voters.
