Rasmussen: Clinton vs. Trump

According to Rasmussen:

If the 2016 presidential election was held today, 37% of Likely U.S. Voters would vote for Clinton, while 36% would vote for Trump. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that a sizable 22% would choose some other candidate, while five percent (5%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

These findings are nearly identical to those measured in October when Trump picked up 38% support to Clinton’s 36%.

Sub-findings are quite interesting:

Seventy-five percent (75%) of Democrats back Clinton, up five points from October. Trump draws support from 63% of Republicans, virtually unchanged from the previous survey. Unaffiliated voters prefer Trump 36% to 25%, but 29% of these voters like some other candidate…

Men prefer Trump over Clinton by a 41% to 31% margin, while women prefer Clinton by a similar 42% to 31% margin.

Voters under 40 give Clinton a 39% to 27% edge over Trump, while middle-aged voters are evenly divided between the two. Senior citizens prefer Trump 45% to 33%.

White voters prefer Trump 41% to 31%, while black and other minority voters give Clinton substantial leads.

Seven percent (7%) of Republicans prefer Clinton in a matchup with Trump; 12% of Democrats opt for Trump if those are their choices.

Voters are evenly divided when asked whether Clinton or Trump would best keep this country safe from terrorism. Trump holds a double-digit lead in voter trust when it comes to the economy and immigration

Despite intense criticism from both his Democratic and Republican presidential rivals, Trump’s proposed ban on Muslims coming to the United States has the support of a sizable majority of Republicans – and a plurality of all voters.

Voters are far more likely to think the media is biased against Trump than against Clinton.
