In U.S., New Record 43% Are Political Independents

Trump has been securing about 35% of the Republican primary vote and that would only represent about 8.75% of the people but it's actually much less because of the extremely low turn-out for primary elections. As noted this small precentage really represents a hamster in a herd of elephants.

This isn't the real problem for Republicans of course. The real problem is that Trump only has a 33% approval rating and a whopping 60% disapproval rating. This is the worst disapproval rating of any presidential candidate in recent history and it alone would prevent Trump from ever being elected President (we can thank our lucky stars).

Hell, Trump couldn't even defeat President Obama if Obama was running again because Obama's sitting on a 50% approval rating this week.

Obama's Job Approval at Highest Level Since May 2013

As I've mentioned previously the GOP leadership is justifiably concerned about Trump possibly becoming the Republican candidate for president because he's a slam-dunk loser in the general election. It could be the greatest landslide loss in Republican history because Trump could actually lose in all 50 states because the vast majority of Americans, including a significant number of Republicans, can't stand him.
Hillary doesn't fare all that much better.

It's a long way to go before November, but Hillary is working hard to catch up.

BTW, Obama won't be running in 2016.
