One hundred percent of Lindblom High School students will not vote for the politician Donald Trump, according to a Talon poll. Even though Trump may be the recent talk of the nation it appears that the political front runner for the Democratic party, Hillary Clinton, would receive more support from Lindblom students. 52.6% of students said they would vote for Hillary while 47.6% said they will not.
According to a recent CNN poll,Clinton is currently 71% likely to be the Democratic nominee. 51% of Republican voters believe Trump is most likely to win the republican nomination.
According to the Talon survey, 68.4% of students do not follow current politics even after the recent fiery debates. This data is surprising since the recent political debates has sparked changed in the standings. Hillary Clinton has been winning debates but Bernie Sanders is gaining support. Republican voters have started to gain enthusiasm about upcoming elections, moving from 28% to 34%. Democrat voters have decreased in enthusiasm from 33% to 28%. Since the information was gathered from random students throughout the school it is surprising so many do not stay informed about the world around them.
We are four months away from the primary vote. Trump admits that if his support drops significantly then he would drop out of the race. Currently he has 25% support nationally while Ben Carson has 16% support. He has had a large lead this entire race with support from Republican voters. While Trump’s name holds a strong recognition, 25% of American voters do not know who they would support for the Republican nomination.
Even though Trump has been holding a strong lead his opponents have been gaining support recently with the debates that allowed for them to stick out. Hillary Clinton seems to have Bernie Sanders as her only major opponent in this political race since he is gaining support. Trump is gaining massive amounts of money to support his political race but is still not the candidate with the most financial support.
