In a head to head battle Hillary Clinton not only beats Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, she annihilates them.

Courtesy of Business Insider:

An Electoral College projection released Wednesday from Morning Consult found that Hillary Clinton would secure massive victories in the general election against either Donald Trump or Ted Cruz, the two most likely Republican presidential nominees. 

The study, which surveyed more than 44,000 registered voters across all 50 states, showed that Clinton would have the advantage in nearly every Midwestern swing state against Trump, the GOP frontrunner, and Cruz, the Texas senator nipping at his heels.

According to the projection Clinton beats Trump 328 to 210, and Cruz 332 to 206.

The study also suggests that John Kasich would be able to beat Hillary in a face to face, however I really think that is only based on a lack of name recognition and that once they got to November his lead would evaporate.

Not only is Kasich just as bad as Cruz, if not worse is some cases, he is also has reams of opposition research just waiting to see the light of day.

Plus let's face it if he were to get the nomination after being so far behind all this time Donald Trump would go after him like a rabid dog and irreparably fracture the party before the election.

The thing about Clinton, Trump, and Cruz is that the public pretty much knows all about them, so these would essentially be their numbers going forward.

    2. I'm currently head-banging over Kasich's visit to a New York Jewish bookstore, at which he took it upon himself to "school" (quote marks mandatory) a group of Talmudic scholars about the Bible.

    Agreed. I get on some sites and people are pushing Kasich because 'he'll beat Hillary,' and I always respond that they need to look at Katich's Lehman history, his religious beliefs which are just as outlandish as Cruz' and his treatment of women and workers in Ohio, which are as bad as Walker, Abbott, and all there eat of the GOP creeps. Hillary would annihilate him in a debate-in fact, I am looking forward to fall!

    1. Kasich would have to do some serious walking back of his beliefs and positions to win over Hillary.

      As you say, his record of caving in to (or outright agreeing with) the far-right on issues like abortion is not something he'll have an easy time defending (for liberals, women, most democrats and most independents). I am less certain that Bernie would beat him, only because I have not decided whether I think Hepped-Up Hillary Hate would cause more voters to vote for Kasich, or Sanders Socialism Scare would.

      I fear a Kasich v. Sanders match would bring out a rather false "economy v. social issues" race - i.e. people will act as if the social issues are less important (which they are not, plus when it comes to access to abortion and creating more humans who need social services, you can hardly say the issue of abortion is not an economic issue!) and that independents and moderates will think - or be convinced by negative TV ads - that Sanders "Socialism" will be far scarier than Kasich's "supporting a couple of abortion bills".

      If anyone wants to try to talk me down from that position, I am all ears to listen.

    2. But that's the point.

      He unifies all of the ugliness each of the other candidates have attracted.

      I think we have a lot to fear of the brokered RNC convention nominates Kasich. They could even do something outlandish like shut up Trump by offering him the VP spot. He'd love that. All the prestige and none of the work. And he'd be in charge of Congress. Sorta.

      Didn't Mrs.Todd Palin do that a couple of years ago. She was campaigning for some low life in Alabama and went on about Bear Bryant and the Crimson Tide. But it turned out she was in the part of the state that supports Auburn and hates the other team. Lots of crowd booing.

      But I don't think she referred to Bear Bryant in the present tense so I guess she would have considered it a big success. Poor thing.

  12. It's Kasich you need to worry about. That's why I think he may be the nominee in a brokered convention.

    Kasich beats both Hillary and Bernie. Bernie and Kasich are an even heat or on a point or two apart. Much wider margin if Hillary goes up against Kasich. Kasich isn't as obviously wacko as the other two but can unite the misogynists and the zealots.

    Don't dismiss Kasich.

    Or Bernie.

      Kasich has flown under the radar because of Cruz and Trump. He wouldn't be able to hand the general election.

      (none of these head to heads mean anything when one or more of the candidates is a relative unknown who hasn't had the full force of the opposing party against them).

    3. Cruz is generally despised and look how well he is doing. Of course, he is despised by those who know him well, his colleagues in the Senate.

      Kasich isn't so much despised as dismissed. I have to wonder if given a choice between the three, the party leaders will choose Kasich over the other two.

    3. Actually Sanders has the same issue that I identified with Kasich.

      His numbers seem high only because he has not been vetted completely yet.

      When the Republicans are done with him, and let's face it they probably don't have to go far past "He's a socialist," it will be an entirely different story.

      That socialist thing does not seem to bother the millenials but it is a deal breaker for many older Americans.

      3:38 -
      New voters had to register by March 25 to be eligible to vote in the NY primary, which is only open to those registered as Democrats or Republicans. Voters who wish to change their party had to do so by OCTOBER 9, 2015!

      Many of the young voters who would have supported Sanders in the primary are either unregistered or registered as Independents, which means they are unable to vote in the Democratic primary unless they are new voters who beat the March 25 deadline.

    She's got this one in the bag. Trump and/or Cruz are way too gullible. Cruz is on msnbc, believes every frame of the planned parenthood baby parts selling tape, and campaigning on it. Blasted Obama for fighting with our sisters of charity over contraceptives. He's a baptist and thought it was wonderful they have machines in men's rest rooms that sold condoms. WTF? They don't sell condoms in the aisles of supermarkets and drug stores?
    He's for the law against transgendered using restrooms of the sex they were born with. "It's nuts.... like girls showering with boys" Hey Cruz, last I checked, folks don't take showers in public restrooms, and if you're looking under the stall watching people eliminate, you're even sicker than I thought.

    Clinton: 'The people of New York voted for me twice.'

    Clinton quickly highlighted her connections to New York, saying in her opening remarks that she represented the state for eight years.
    "During those eight years, we faced some difficult challenges together," she said, citing the terrorist attack on 9/11 and the need to create new jobs as examples. "We worked hard to keep New York values at the center of who we are and what we do together."
    "The people of New York voted for me twice," she said shortly after.
    In her closing remarks, she added that she is asking for the state's support again so she can take "New York Values to the White House."
