UT/TT Poll: Clinton 54%, Bernie 44%
UT/TT Poll: Clinton Still Leads in Texas, But Margin Has Narrowed
Hillary Clintons lead over Bernie Sanders has narrowed considerably in Texas but remains in the double digits among the states likely Democratic primary voters, according to the latest University of Texas/Texas Tribune Poll.
The former secretary of state is leading, with 54 percent, a week before the Texas primary, while Sanders, a U.S. senator from Vermont, has the support of 44 percent of the respondents.
Texas voters have six other choices on the Democratic presidential primary ballot: Martin OMalley, Roque Rocky de la Fuente, Willie Wilson, Star Locke, Keith Judd and Calvis Hawes. None attracted significant support from the polls respondents.
This race is narrowing, but not narrowing in a way for the lines to actually cross especially in Texas, said Jim Henson, director of the Texas Politics Project at UT-Austin and the polls co-director. Clinton will win, he said, but the question mark, is the states Hispanic voters and their relatively low propensity to vote. This will be a double-digit race, but I dont think its going to be a 20-point race.
And remember, all states allot delegates proportionately. What Bernie needs to do is run ads using Hillary's own words about how we need to send unaccompanied children back to Central American violence to send a message.
And Hillary needs to be exposed as what she really is: Not your nice abuela, but the politician who advocates sending children back to violence.
He needs to hit her with her own ugly, hateful words. And there's plenty there.
my Hispanic husband is for Sanders and says all his friends are for Sanders but most of them can't vote (not citizens).
