Bernie shows Clinton vulnerability in rust and coal belt races
These Exit Polls Should Rattle the Clinton CampaignShe probably needs to write off West Virginia. But she also is probably in trouble in other states carried by Sanders such as Michigan. Paul Sperry lists several states where the polling suggests Clinton will have trouble selling her economic message.
One of the most striking—and disturbing—takeaways from Tuesday’s West Virginia Democratic primary were exit polls that found large numbers of Bernie Sanders supporters saying if not Bernie, they would actually vote for Donald Trump next fall.
CBS News reported 44 percent said they’d vote for Trump, 23 percent for Hillary Clinton, and 32 percent for neither. These findings—especially Sanders’ supporters shifting to Trump—seem like a stretch, but maybe they’re not.
