How each Republican fares against Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, in 1 cool chart

I'm generally pretty skeptical of any polling this far out from an election. I am, however, very skeptical of the value of general election head-to-head match-ups this far out. 538's Harry Enten has a good articulation of why, in case it's not self-evident, but consider the situation. We're asking people who they'd pick before each party has settled on its candidate -- meaning while there's still internal partisan tension -- before any campaigning and before a year's worth of economic shifts happen.

There is some value though in one subset of head-to-head data, I think: Looking at how demographic groups view different candidates relative to one another.

On Tuesday, McClatchy and Marist released a new poll looking at the Republican field. Included in the results were a phalanx of head-to-head match-ups, pitting Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders against six different Republicans: Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina, Marco Rubio and Donald Trump.

2. I sense numbers for Carson and Rubio might decrease.

Call it a [strike]nut[/strike] gut feeling as to Carson and a money shot as to Rubio.
