FOR RELEASE: FEBRUARY 17, 2016

TRUMP SURGES TO 2-1 LEAD AMONG REPUBLICANS NATIONWIDE,


QUINNIPIAC UNIVERSITY NATIONAL POLL FINDS;
CLINTON, SANDERS LOCKED IN A TIE AMONG DEMOCRATS
The Donald Trump juggernaut rolls to a 2-1 lead among Republican voters nationwide, with 39
percent, his highest total so far, followed by Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida with 19 percent and
Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas with 18 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University National poll
released today. Ohio Gov. John Kasich has 6 percent with former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Dr.
Ben Carson at 4 percent each. Nine percent are undecided.
This compares to the results of a February 5 survey by the independent Quinnipiac
(KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University, showing Trump with 31 percent, Cruz with 22 percent and Rubio
with 19 percent.
In the Democratic race nationwide, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has 44
percent, with Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont at 42 percent, and 11 percent undecided,
unchanged from February 5.
The top three Republicans are closely matched in terms of voter opinion as Trump gets a
62 31 percent favorability among Republicans, with 64 17 percent for Rubio and 62 23
percent for Cruz.
Reports of Donald Trumps imminent demise as a candidate are clearly and greatly
exaggerated. Like a freight train barreling through signals with his horn on full blast, Trump
heads down the track towards a possible nomination, said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the
Quinnipiac University Poll.
There is a but. Trumps raw numbers are formidable, but he trails the pack on some
from the gut character measurements. And the kind of bright spot that Jeb Bush supporters,
few as they be, may grab ahold of. The former Florida governor polls best in the pack on
experience.

Sen. Bernie Sanders and Secretary Hillary Clinton are neck and neck. But while Bernie
has the trust, Hillary has the experience. Two different measurements of two dissimilar
candidates, Malloy added.
Trump has a good chance of winning in November, 77 percent of Republican voters
nationwide say, while 61 percent say Rubio has a good chance of winning and 60 percent say
Cruz has a good chance.
Looking at key characteristics, Bush leads in one area as 74 percent of Republicans say
he has the right kind of experience to be president, with Cruz at 68 percent, Trump at 60 percent,
Kasich at 59 percent and Rubio at 54 percent. On other qualities, Republican voters say:

72 percent that Rubio is honest and trustworthy, with 70 percent for Bush, 65 percent for
Kasich, 62 percent for Cruz and 60 percent for Trump;
80 percent that Trump has strong leadership qualities, with 69 percent for Cruz, 63
percent for Rubio, 60 percent for Bush and 58 percent for Kasich;
73 percent that Rubio cares about their needs and problems, with 67 percent for Cruz, 66
percent for Bush and 62 percent each for Trump and Kasich;
70 percent say Rubio shares their values, with 69 percent for Bush, 67 percent for Cruz,
60 percent for Trump and 57 percent for Kasich.
Clinton Sanders
The Democratic gender gap is shrinking as women back Clinton over Sanders 47 41

percent while men back Sanders 44 40 percent. Clinton would have a good chance of winning
in November, 83 percent of Democrats say, compared to 69 percent who say Sanders has a good
chance. Looking at key characteristics among Democratic voters:

93 percent say Clinton has the right kind of experience to be president, compared to 74
percent for Sanders;
87 percent say Sanders is honest and trustworthy, compared to 61 percent for Clinton;
87 percent say Clinton has strong leadership qualities, with 79 percent for Sanders;
86 percent say Sanders cares about their needs and problems, compared to 78 percent for
Clinton;
82 percent say Sanders shares their values, compared to 75 percent for Clinton.
