Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton both lead in Connecticut ahead of their respective parties’ presidential nominating contests in the state next week, according to polling released Wednesday.

Mr. Trump was at 48 percent support in the Quinnipiac poll, ahead of Ohio Gov. John Kasich at 28 percent and Sen. Ted Cruz at 19 percent.

“Connecticut Republicans have gone for outsider candidates such as Linda McMahon and Tom Foley. They continue that trend with Donald Trump,” said Quinnipiac University Poll Director Douglas Schwartz. “The conventional wisdom that Sen. Cruz is too conservative for Connecticut looks true, as he comes in a distant third in the Republican primary. Kasich clearly is outpacing Cruz for second, but running well behind Trump.”

Fifty-six percent of Republicans in the state said they have at least a somewhat favorable view of Mr. Trump, compared to 37 percent with an unfavorable one. Mr. Kasich had a 58 percent/18 percent favorable/unfavorable split, while Mr. Cruz had a 38 percent/45 percent split.

    Trump will win the nomination, and my win it outright. Politicians = scum of the earth.

    My take on the eventual Presidential Election is
    “Do you want a President who barks,,, or one that bites?”

  • mabera19

    Donald will stand his grounds when he faces Hillary. Donald is the only person that can beat Hillary because Cruz is a Demo backer also.

    here is some logic…..In the beginning we had 10 commandments, these were laws….now we have attorney’s that wrote 3,957, 788,211, 931, 108 laws just last year….all from the 10 laws we have already in place…..why is that,? It so you couldn’t live without an attorney to represent you….wow….now if we had only ten laws…you could represent yourself and wouldn’t need an attorney…..think about that. Attorney’s in WH is not good.

    David Sherfinski, why did you not tell us how Hillary is polling. You only told us how Trump is. Are you biased against Hillary because she is smarter than Trump and all TPs and Repubs? That is why I do not respect right-wing people and media. They make me sick.

      I see the Left Wing LUNATIC Troll, pmbalele, is baaaaaaack.

        You need to market that…before someone else beats you to it.

      • pmbalele

        I like Trump more than you and Repubs. Do you know Cruz does not know where Israel is on the map. Cruz think Israel is in Egypt.

    • kbfallon

      Hillary smart? HUH! I guess you may have a point there as she is still walking the streets and has not been locked up for all of the atrocious acts she has commited against the USA and citizens….we shall see how much longer…her dirty deeds will come back and take her down…its called KARMA.

      • E Swisher

        Smart, no. Another crooked lawyer whose attitude/mentality is deny, deny, deny…ignore the evidence and then it will all go away… Unfortunately too many Democrat go right along with that mentality, and are willing to sacrifice this nation in the process.

  • disqus_BAvz0LV7zw

    I’m tired of lawyers at the WH. They are expert in manipulating facts and deceptively making wrong things right. E, g. Political Correctness has replaced the Constitution. Lawyers like Obama, Clinton Hillary and Bill, are too big mouthed people who manage to use legal terms to escape their crimes. Results, they are so corrupt, dishonest, liars, and deceptive. The victims are the American people.
    It is better for Trump, straightforward talking, without any hidden agenda but to serve his duty as president of the people. He will not enrich himself because he is already rich. Unlike our current president, Hillary, they all amassed wealth and power via lies and corruptions. America, away from these people!

            that could happen, a couple of retired General’s names have been thrown around lately, but the G O P boys had better be very careful in what they do, and how they do it.

          • The Redhawk

            yes, I have to agree with that.

          • Merle Dickey

            Kasich is getting supported by George Soros !!!

          • used_to_be_a_liberal

            Yup, George Soros, a Nazi collaborator, who turned in hundreds if not thousands of his fellow Jewish people. He should have been given the death penalty at the end of the war.

          • The Redhawk

            TRY saying this with your HEAD out of your Impacted COLON T_RUMP will do another “GOLDWATER” to the GOP.. he has HIGH NEGATIVESwith VOTERS of al KINDS

      • snowyriver

        Our Constitution states clearly that to be eligible for the office of president you must be a natural born citizen of the United States.. Meanwhile Cruz is a natural born citizen of Canada..It is a felony on his part and the person that swears him in to be sworn into the presidency.. He has already broken his Senatorial oath to protect and defend our Constitution by running for the presidency when he is not eligible.

    • Mike N

      You are entitled to your opinion. When the press gets to him he will be doomed. If he is the nominee they will begin their attack on him.

      • Richard Schwartz

        What planet do you live on? When has the media been “nice” to Donald? Have you noticed the only people not affected are the voters. Trump means view ship which mean money. The more Donald screams the more press he will get. Negatives still keep him in the limelight. What seems to be lost is how brutal he will be on the media.

        • Mike N

          He has hardly been touched. There has been hardly any talk about his bankruptcies, his failed enterprises, his support single payer health care, etc. The press has hardly been unleashed on him.

      • Smart Southerner

        The Liberal attack dogs aka the MSM, George Soros’ foundations, their PACs & Super PACs will destroy Teddy over his Canadian birth certificate.

        • Mike N

          It won’t work because Cruz has already been challenged and has won every court decision. The latest being New Jersey.

      • Smart Southerner

        I still haven’t seen an answer to my question on another thread.

        Did Ted Cruz get any foreign student grants for college?

        • Mike N

          He wouldn’t be eligible since he has always been an American citizen.

      • used_to_be_a_liberal

        One commercial could sink Cruz, here is an example of what they could do.
        Cruz descending from the clouds, wearing a white robe, a halo over his head, carrying a bible in one hand, and a book of rules in the other.
        That is all that is needed. Cruz would be finished, it would not matter what he says, does, or acts. The religious right is less then 20% of the population, that is no where near enough to get him the presidency.
        I read that 80% of the population believe in God, however they will not overwhelmingly support what they perceive to be a religious zealot. I said perceive, perception need not be factual, true, or even an honest assessment, and there in lies the problem for Cruz

        • Mike N

          Interesting take. First I want to congratulate you for seeing the light and are no longer a liberal. I guess I am what you would probably call a bible thumper so I probably don’t see it quite the way you do. With that being said you may be right. Personally I believe it is God’s hands. If he desires Ted to win he will otherwise he will lose. My personal belief is that we as a country have turned away from God and become morally corrupt so we are being punished as Israel was when they turned away from God. There is no other explanation for Obama being elected for two terms. I’m not so sure that Cruz’s christianity will hurt him so much as the fact that he stood up to the establishment and they successfully tainted his name.

          • used_to_be_a_liberal

            Mike, I do not intend on besmirching your faith, obviously it is stronger then mine. I do not dismiss out of hand anything that you have said, besides you may very well be correct too. There are a couple of “sayings” I am not sure of the exact wording, but I think that they go something like this. God works in mysterious ways, and the other is, God helps those that help themselves. So as you have said in so many words, we had better get back on the ‘ball”

          • Mike N

            I don’t disagree with a thing you are saying. I don’t believe that is contrary to anything that I said. If we want a better job we can’t just sit around and have faith that God will give us a better job. We have to do everything that we can to get that job. We still have free will. I just believe we need to change the direction our country is headed and hopefully we will regain God’s blessings. We need to make that effort. I believe the success of our country was because it was based on Judeo Christian values. When those values go so goes our country. I strongly favor Cruz because I believe he has the values to change our country. Trump said he does not need God’s forgiveness. That concerns me because we all need God’s forgiveness.

          • used_to_be_a_liberal

            What you said here, “I just believe we need to change the direction our country is headed and hopefully we will regain God’s blessings.” is absolutely true.
            What instrument is finally chosen remains to be seen. A Bull in the China Shop, or a Sly Fox, perhaps they should unite, they would be pretty much unbeatable.

          • BlessedtoServe

            Mike Trump never said he did not need God’s forgiveness, he said ” As of yet I have not asked for forgiveness”…please quote precisley….big difference here….this does not by any means as him saying he does not believe in God…for some say “I love you” means a lot and once said has more impact than for those who just toss the words out… we are all sinful, but God knows what’s in a mans heart, and we will all bend our knee to HIM in the end…each of us comes to God in different times and circumstances….this is not to say Trump won’t ask for forgiveness…But even God works through a sinner…lest you need examples…I shall provide

          • Mike N

            Technically you are right. He said something like I haven’t asked for God’s forgiveness because I don’t have much to apologize for. Isn’t that saying he does not need God’s forgiveness? I think we are splitting hairs here.

          • BlessedtoServe

            the exact words were ” I have yet to ask for forgiveness”. No other words were said thereafter. We are not splitting hairs. He did not say he would not, shall not, had not a reason etc…He did not say he did not need God’s forgiveness…just “I have yet to ask for God’s forgiveness” that leaves it wide open to happen…
