Morning Consult poll: Democrats hold clear lead
Morning Consult disclosed the results of a new national poll on March 28. In this poll, which was conducted on behalf of CNN, respondents were asked for whom they would likely vote if Hillary Clinton were the Democratic Party's candidate and Donald Trump were the Republican Party's candidate. The results show that 44.0% of respondents intend to vote for Clinton, while 38.0% said they would vote for Trump. This poll was conducted via Internet from March 24 to March 26, among a random sample of 2071 registered voters.
Translating these results into two-party vote shares yields figures of 53.7% for the Democrats and 46.3% for the Republicans. In comparison, the PollyVote currently foresees the Democrats to win 53.2% of the two-party vote, which is 0.5 percentage points lower than their polling results.
