Now that same poll has released the national results of their survey (done on July 29th of a random national sample of 1,555 registered voters, with a margin of error of 2.5 points).
The results for Democrats nationwide is not surprising. The survey just reflects what other polls have shown for many weeks now -- that Hillary Clinton has the support of a significant majority of Democrats (54.9%). Bernie Sanders is second with about 18.4% -- about 36.5 points behind Clinton.
I don't know why, but the poll included Elizabeth Warren -- even though she has made it clear numerous times that she is not a candidate (and will not be a candidate in the 2016 election). It doesn't really matter though, because if none of those supporting her wound up voting for Clinton (which I would doubt), Clinton still has a majority.
On the Republican side of the ledger, Donald Trump is still leading the field of GOP candidates -- and may have extended his lead. This survey puts his support at 30.8% -- 17.5 points ahead of Jeb Bush (13.3%) and 18.3 points ahead of Scott Walker (12.5%).
We are only a few days away from the first nationally televised Republican debate, and it will be interesting to see if that debate affects Trump's numbers. For the first time, he will be onstage with the other leading candidates. Will the comparison help or hurt him?
