Trump pulls even with Clinton in general election poll

After a series of wins to end April that included a big victory in NY and the eastern seaboard states, Clinton has grown her delegate lead to almost 300 over Bernie Sanders.

Paul Ryan urged to make nice with Trump. His fundraising has fallen off and so, too, has his advertising, with only about $525,000 in ads planned for California and $63,000 each in West Virginia and OR, according to advertising tracker Kantar Media's CMAG.

In the most recent Marquette poll of swing state Wisconsin, 11 percent of Sanders fans say if Clinton wins the nomination, they won't vote for Clinton or Donald Trump.

As a consolation, Clinton won the Nebraska primary, but she is not getting any delegate from it. The delegates were allocated in the March 5 primary, which was won by Sanders. Now, The New York Times reports that Clinton is now using Trump's remarks in her campaign. She has won 23 states to Sanders' 19, capturing 3 million more votes than her rival along the way.

Meanwhile, Carville said he thinks that the Clinton campaign will need to bring Sanders into the fold, just as Clinton joined with Obama. But what he has shown the party, I think, is that the left flank of the Democratic party is alive and well.

"Four statewide polls ... in every one of those polls, we beat Trump, will do better against Trump, than does Secretary Clinton".

Bruce, in the same poll last week, Clinton held an 11 point lead over Trump.

Upholding impartiality in the Democratic primary was a carefully calculated attempt by the White House to maintain some semblance of party unity, even as Clinton and Sanders divided traditional Democratic voting blocs in their respective bids for the nomination. He added that Sanders' crowds have exposed some of Clinton's weaknesses and he would not have generated that energy "if the Democrats were so enamored of her candidacy". Clinton's position isn't unprecedented, but it is a little tougher than Sanders's, whom Trump has largely ignored.

Two in three Democratic primary voters who favor each of the remaining candidates claim they are strongly for their choice. While Trump appears to have bullied the establishment into submission, Sanders has come up short.

Clinton supporter Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers, pointed to the results in West Virginia, where 4 in 10 voters said in exit polls that they considered themselves independents or Republicans.

Just 144 delegates short, Clinton remains on track to reach the 2,383 delegates needed to win the nomination early next month.

"I'm glad I can vote for her now", she said.
