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 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.
