Hillary Clinton continued to have a comfortable lead, dropping slightly from 63.2% to 62.3%. This is her third straight week over 60%.
Donald Trump had the biggest movement dropping from 23% to 17.6%. This is the lowest he has been in the last 6 weeks as comments about punishing women for abortion (later backtracked) and his nuclear policy took front stage.
Bernie Sanders had a significant improvement moving from 4.8% to 7.3%, his highest in the last six weeks. This was a result of him sweeping Clinton in three states last week (Alaska, Hawaii, Washington)
With Trump’s drop, his two Republican rivals gained. Ted Cruz improved from 3.3% to 5.1%. That is the highest he has been in 12 weeks. John Kasich improved from 2.8% to 4.1%. That is the highest he has been in the race. Previous high was 3.8% two weeks ago.
The person who’s odds have consistently gained the last six weeks is Paul Ryan. He jumps from 0.9% to 1.7%. He was at merely 0.2% seven weeks ago. That is the highest he has been since January of 2015. He has always maintained he is not running. This is a play on both a contested primary, as well as the possibility of an independent run by someone causing no outright winner in the general elections.
