Donald Trump is hugely popular with less-educated white men. Everybody else hates him, according to Jonathan Martin and Nate Cohn on the New York Times.
“We’re talking about somebody who has the passionate devotion of a minority and alternately scares, appalls, angers — or all of the above — a majority of the country,” said Henry Olsen, a conservative analyst. “This isn’t anything but a historic election defeat just waiting to happen.”
Hillary Clinton is likely to be the Democratic nominee, and beat Trump in the general election. Interestingly, Sanders is less likely to win the Democratic nomination but more likely to beat Trump in the general, The Times says.
The “general-election universe is vastly larger and more diverse than the Republican primary electorate” – about 30 million votes anticipated in this year’s GOP primary, compared with 129 million voters in the 2012 Presidential general election, according to the Times.
