Nearly 30% of Democrats in Alabama would like to see Donald Trump win the election.
Between August 29 and September 1, Gravis Marketing asked 1,616 participants in Alabama, “assuming you had to vote today, which 2016 GOP Candidate would you vote for?”
Trump took a large lead at 38%. This number nearly matched the numbers of all other candidates combined (38.8%).
Interestingly, Trump scored 28% with self-identified Democrats, a fact that undoubtedly has the political elite worried.
A poll conducted by SurveyUSA released on Friday showed Trump besting Democrat Hillary Clinton in a head-to-head matchup. He also beat out Sen. Bernie Sanders, Vice President Joe Biden and former Vice President Al Gore. Biden and Gore have yet to declare their candidacy.
“Trump is still breaking all the rules on a daily basis, but it’s becoming a very real possibility that the people out there getting ready to vote in the primary and the general election as well don’t really give a hoot about our rules,” notes Jazz Shaw, writing for Hot Air.
He is also shaking up what the political class took for granted — party loyalty — as a large number of Democrats, at least in Alabama, have signaled they may cross party lines and vote for a candidate who does not play by the rules.
