I’ve heard at least one of Trump’s kids say his father has changed the skyline of New York.
Apparently, if they’re waiting for a “Thank you,” they’re going to be waiting a long time, because the state of New York isn’t returning the love.
POLITICO is reporting on New York polling this morning:
Democrat Hillary Clinton continues to enjoy a commanding lead in the presidential race in New York, according to a Siena Research Institute poll of registered voters conducted last week.
She’s beating Republican Donald Trump by 57-27 in a one-on-one matchup and 50-25 when third-party candidates are factored in. And while her favorability rating continues to be low — 51 percent of voters view her favorably and 46 percent unfavorably — it’s far better than Trump’s 24-72.
It’s not a surprise that a Democrat is winning New York, outright, but Trump has only slightly more than half of the Republican vote in the state he calls home.
Currently, Trump has 55% of the Republican vote, with 24% saying they’d rather vote for the Democrat fraudster than the Republican con man. Those numbers for Trump dip to 52% if you factor in a third party.
Trump’s polling among Republicans was lackluster on a variety of issues. Only half said he’d be better than Clinton on “addressing tensions between the police and communities of color,” 53 percent think he’d make a better commander-in-chief, and 56 percent believe he’d work better with Congress.
New York Republicans also think Bill Clinton would make a better first philanderer… er… spouse than Melania Trump, as well, choosing Clinton over Melania by a margin of 46 to 42.
