As Clinton Slips, Bernie Beats Trump in Every Poll

If Americans don't change their current views, the matchup between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton could be a race between the two most disliked nominees in at least three decades.

An NBC poll from May the 10th that showed Clinton with a 5 percent lead over Trump and Sanders with a 13 point lead over the presumptive Republican nominee pointed to two areas that Sanders has an advantage over Clinton against Trump: young Republican voters and Independent voters.

Clinton's win might give her some momentum, but it won't get her any delegates.

Going on, Sanders had 2,124 delegates to Clinton's 1,722.

With 126 pledged delegates at stake, New Jersey offers Clinton more than what she needs to clinch - even if she were to lose the state.

However, Sanders rebuked Democratic superdelegates - party office holders and lawmakers who can vote. They choose at the convention - for overwhelmingly coming out for Clinton early in what he said was an "anointment" by the establishment and big money interests. For example, the press reported claims from state party officials that Sanders supporters threw chairs, but no one has substantiated the accusations.

Respondents, however, said they would back Sanders 53 to 41 percent over Trump in a general election matchup - a larger margin than Clinton, underscoring the Vermont senator's campaign argument that he is the best candidate to face the businessman in November.
