Latest polls for 2016 presidential election: Another massive win for Donald Trump before next GOP debate

Super Tuesday 2 came with a huge jolt for Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton. Her opponent and only rival left in the Democratic nomination fight, Bernie Sanders scored an upset win over her in Michigan, the biggest catch in terms of delegates count.

Is this going to be a game-changer in Democratic nomination fight that seemed to be going to former secretary of state Hillary Clinton? Will 74-year old Vermont Senator do what a very young Obama did to Hillary Clinton in the year 2008? Despite her early advantage over Obama and the backing of Democratic establishment, she miserably failed in the nomination fight.

A sure way ahead for nomination for Hillary ended abruptly and Obama ran away with nomination at the age of just 47 years.

republican debate on fox news last nightNow her impressive win in Mississippi looked small compared to the loss suffered in Michigan. Now it is apparent that Clinton has advantage in those places where African American community has a large presence. An analyst says, “There’s a large percentage of African-American voters there who typically are favouring Mrs Clinton but at the same time, [Sanders’] message of income inequality, of being left behind in a ‘rigged economy’ resonate with those voters who have felt the impact of globalisation and seen the auto-manufacturing industry really crumble…This is a tremendous psychological as well as political victory.”

After winning Michigan, sanders directed his attack against Clinton and Washington and said, “The American people are saying they are tired of a corrupt campaign, finance system and super packs financed by Wall Street and the billionaire class…They are tired of a rigged economy.”

On the other hand Donald Trump won handsomely yesterday winning three states including Mississippi and Michigan. Trump built his victories in the industrial Midwest and the Deep South with broad appeal across many demographics, winning evangelical Christians, Republicans, independents, those who wanted an outsider and those who said they were angry about how the federal government is working, exit polls showed.

For Donald Trump Michigan win was very important. “I’m not a normal Republican,” Trump said last week in Macomb County, the place where the fabled phenomenon of Reagan Democrats, who dropped their party affiliation to side with the Republican president, was first identified. “A normal Republican cannot think in terms … of bringing in Michigan. And if you don’t bring in Michigan it’s tough. You have a very narrow road,” Trump said.
