A new poll is shocking the political establishment to its core. The national poll conducted by Rasmussen Reports is showing GOP frontrunner Donald Trump neck-and-neck with likely Democratic nominee, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely U.S. Voters finds Trump and Clinton tied at 38% each. But 16% say they would vote for some other candidate if the presidential election comes down to those two, while six percent (6%) would stay home. Only two percent (2%) are undecided given those options.
Although the poll is seemingly good news for the billionaire, it also shows that Trump has more ground to gain within the GOP than Hillary does amongst her political base. The poll purports to show that if the real estate mogul does win the nomination 16% of GOP voters say they would choose a third-party candidate, while five percent would stay home. On the other side of the aisle, 11% of Democrats would vote third-party, while three percent would stay home.
