Poll Shows Trump Still Losing Big to Clinton or Sanders



Donald Trump’s runaway wins in recent Republican primary contests haven’t helped his standing with the broader electorate, a new poll finds.

A CNN/ORC poll out Wednesday found Mr. Trump trailing Democratic front-runnerHillary Clinton by 13 points among registered voters in a hypothetical match-up, 54% to 41%, little changed from the March CNN poll.

Mr. Trump fared poorly on many hot-button issues that are key parts of the Trump brand. For instance, when asked who would be better on immigration, Mrs. Clinton leads Mr. Trump, 51% to 44%. On foreign policy, the gap widened to 61% to 36%. One place where Mr. Trump was seen as stronger than Mrs. Clinton: the economy, where Mr. Trump was up 50% to 45%.

In a hypothetical matchup between Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Mr. Trump, Mr. Sanders leads 56% to 40%, narrower than the 58% to 38% margin in the March CNN poll.

The poll was conducted before Mr. Trump’s Indiana win, which drove rivals Ted Cruz and John Kasich out of the GOP race and left him as the presumptive GOP nominee.

The CNN/ORC poll surveyed 890 registered voters between April 28 and May 1. The margin of error was plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
