    From the standpoint of the rural/urban red/blue divide, it isn't surprising at all. I would expect some rural populist Democrats to support Trump. Families don't easily change political parties. The descendants of Woodrow Wilson supporters have been looking for someone like Trump.

    There's no stopping him now. He's even got a sizeable portion of the black vote.

    Yeah, although a Trump presidency will probably be the most interesting and entertaining thing to happen in politics for a while.

    The only people who would shake up the system is either Sanders or Trump.

    A shockingly high percentage of Americans describe themselves as being angry. In fact, voter dissatisfaction seems to be the one common thread regardless of party affiliation.

    We will, for a moment, ignore the fact that most of these "angry" Americans live lives of comparative ease and comfort. Well-fed; well-clothed; warm and comfortable at night. 1300 channels of **** on the TV to chose from, choose from, choose from ....

    It seems to me that this anger manifests itself in two very different ways. On one hand we have the Bernie Sanders acolytes. Angry at the banks and the financial system thats got them screwed three ways to Sunday. Anxious to bust up Goldman Sachs and Bank of America; and if it means lopping off a few (figurative) corporate heads along the way - so be it.

    On the other, we have a much darker; sadder; and more frightening cohort of Trump supporters. Bewildered by a world they can scarcely comprehend, they lash out viciously at the other (Muslims; Mexicans; immigrants; gays; socialists; liberals....)

    Neither Donald Trump nor Bernie Sanders are going to be our next President. But I'm saddened to the extent to which so many in our proud nation have fallen victim to the philosophy of hate.

    We're a better country than that.

    There's a long time before the election. History reveals the vast shift in voter sentiments that typically occurs between now and then.

    Hillary isn't even going to be the democratic nominee, so this poll is moot.

    Sanders demolishes Trump in pretty much every poll taken recently.

    Total disaster?

    Am I the only one with a decent job, and looking forward to a nice retirement in this country?

    Why can't the rest of you get your **** together?

    C'mon! Pull yourselves up by your bootstraps!

    You're right. 20% of democrats are voting for Trump, but now that there are probably only 2 or 3 democrats left in this country since Hillary will be the nominee, it's not that many people.

    1. You do not know if Clinton will be the nominee, since a single primary or caucus has been conducted.
    2. You do not know if Trump will be the nominee, since not a single primary or caucus has been conducted.
    3. You do not know if 'millions of democrats' will vote for Trump, because not a single primary, caucus, or election has been conducted.

    Furthermore relative to #3, the Blues can't vote in a Republican caucus or primary, so not a single democrat will be able to vote for Trump, contrary to your belief. The only way for them to vote for Trump will be if Trump wins the Republican nomination, and continues on to the general election, and none of that has occurred.

    My point still stands: "millions of Democrats?" The epitome of hyperbole.

    You fail to actually understand what the article says, lets recap.

    But wait there's more

    So if we were to say that even in the best chances these numbers are correct, that only gives Trump a 6% boost in his potential numbers and says nothing about general election numbers.

    With almost a year still out, these numbers don't really mean much, for any of them.
