Posted on 04/30/2016 12:30:30 PM PDT by MaxistheBest
Riding on a string of big victories in the presidential primaries, Donald Trump has not only extended his lead against his GOP rivals, but also he has gained ground against Hillary Clinton, according to the latest IBD/TIPP Poll.
The poll finds that Trump now leads Ted Cruz by 19 points 48% to 29% which is more than double his lead last month. At the same time, Hillarys lead over Trump is now just seven points (47% to 40%), down from 12 points last month.
Whats more, 65% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents now pick Trump as either their first or second choice for the GOP nomination compared with just 49% last month. Cruz dropped from 63% to 57%.

Trump will keep closing the gap between him and Clinton, and by the end of June, he’ll be beating her in most polls.
Just wait until Trump turns his guns on Cankles. Her negatives will hit the stratosphere.
I’d be interested to ask voters -
Would you rather work for Trump or Hillary? Who would be the better boss?
They are both beating the candidates with more favorability in their respective parties. So this means nothing. Trump will cream Hillary come November.
What is that?
Ask t the secret service who they would rather work for.
Fiorina has high negatives but that didn’t stop Cruz from picking her as his nonsensical VP
Can you imagine the Butcher of Benghazi doing that? Not a chance in hell. If by some chance she was forced to, she’d demand that she be carried.
That’s Trump having to jump fences and everything just to get in the back door of the convention to give a speech because of the Mexican thugs.
Rather than be made late, he had his motorcade pull off the highway and he and his entourage basically walked through concrete barriers and up and down an embankment so that he could deliver his speech on time.
This shows we are now a nation under siege within our own borders by terrorists who force our citizens to jump & crawl through muck least they don’t get attacked....think about it.
I appreciate the explanation. I hadn’t see that yet.
This guy doesn’t take B. S. does he.
The HILDERBEAST is going to burn in HELL!!!
Who would you follow into battle - Hillary or Trump?
As a Cruzer who knows when it is time to pack it in and unify under Trump, I would say that the difference between Trump’s and HRC’s negatives is that Hillary has been on the political scene for so long that it is well nigh impossible for her to convince those who are disaffected by her to change, while it is possible for Trump, who can still become “more Presidential” without completely dropping the brashness and bluntness that got him here, to lower some of his negatives between now and November.
Nevertheless, there will ALWAYS be a plurality who are negative towards Trump, in small part because he is Trump, and in large part because he is Not Down With The Struggle Where Resist We Much. If you think the animus towards Reagan was difficult, it will seem like a Sunday School picnic compared to the out-and-out rebellion that will be planned and funded for a Trump Presidency—and it would have been the same for Cruz, and probably even for Jeb! as well. The left will not go quietly into the good night.
The Donald’s “negatives” will seem more and more insignificant in relation to those of Herself, and one huge (or is that YUUGE!) positive, The Donald is a far more entertaining person in face-to-face match-up with Herself, who comes off as a sort of shrew on her best day, and may fall into some senior moments in heated debate.
The Donald can think and talk rings around Herself in a one-on-one debate. Just reflect on the number he did on Rosie O’Donnell after she called him a “snake-oil salesman”. The Donald can get pretty harsh, but remember, the attack came from Rosie first.
“Don’t hit the girl” was never an overriding rule for The Donald. Not after the first swing comes from the girl in question.
Trump might actually make her cry. And I don’t mean fake tears calculated to elicit voter sympathy. I mean that Trump make actually make the Hildebeast break down and cry.
