Polls and preferences

A recent poll jointly conducted by the New York Times and CBS News reveals that the people are confused. Though 60 percent of Republican primary voters are “embarrassed” by their party, nearly half support Donald Trump, the most embarrassing of them all—and it’s not even close.

On the Democratic side, “excitement” reigns for Bernie, but not so much for Hillary. Disturbing to me is the percentage of both candidates’ supporters who will stay home in November should their preferred candidate fail to win the nomination. Yikes.
