Given the state of the Republican presidential race, it’s time to acknowledge a very uncomfortable truth: Donald Trump is probably going to be the Republican nominee.
The question for Democrats is simple. Who has the best chance to defeat Trump? And by any objective measure, the answer is Bernie Sanders. In almost every recent head-to-head poll against Trump, Bernie leads by a wide margin while Hillary Clinton either trails or is within the margin of error. Take a look at these recent polling averages:
Huffington Post Average of Recent Polls
Sanders: 51% to Trump: 41%
Clinton: 48% to Trump: 44%
We have momentum, we have one less pledged delegate than Hillary Clinton, and we’re closing the gap in the national polls. But with 26 primaries and caucuses in the next three weeks, Bernie needs you now:
Contribute to our campaign today. It could mean the difference between victory and defeat — between taking back our country from the billionaire class, or President Donald Trump.
The truth is, it’s going to take more than establishment politics and establishment thinking to beat Donald Trump.
But together, we are building something unprecedented. That is why we’re doing so well in the polls, and why we’ve seen grassroots enthusiasm unmatched by any candidate on either side of this primary. Only Trump comes close. And that is why what we are building is what will be required to defeat him.
