I’m a bit worried about the possibility that Donald Trump might win the Presidential election. I don’t personally see how any sane person could vote for him, but US politics never seems to have been ruled by sanity.
I was looking at the poll summaries at RealClearPolitics:
- http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2016/president/us/general_election_trump_vs_sanders-5565.html shows Bernie Sanders with about a 10% lead over Trump (as of 2016 June 1), and the gap has been 6% or more since the beginning of January and gradually widening.
- http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2016/president/us/general_election_trump_vs_clinton-5491.html shows Hillary Clinton with about a 1.5% lead over Trump (as of 2016 June 1), and the gap has been fluctuating from –0.2% to 11% since last August.
I hope that the “superdelegates” at the Democratic national convention are watching these polls also and doing everything they can to make sure that Trump is not elected, even if it means that their favorite candidate doesn’t get the nomination.
