Super Tuesday: Clinton leads Trump in Harvard poll of young voters

Voters cast ballots in five northeastern states Tuesday, with frontrunners Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump both looking to overwhelm their respective Democratic and Republican rivals in the race for the White House. With Hillary Clinton poised to sweep the northeast and with an already strong lead among the influential wise men of her party, Bernie Sanders' claims to have a path may hit a dead end, reports The Guardian.

A very strong showing in primaries in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island would Clinton on the cusp of Democratic victory, a monumental step in her quest to become the nation's first female commander in chief.

Young voters favor Hillary Clinton for president over Donald Trump by a landslide margin, a new poll of 18- to 29-year-olds finds, and their interest in any Republican for president has dropped significantly over the last year of campaigning. On the same day, Trump reached for the first time a 50 per cent plus rating among Republican leaning voters in a new NBC poll.

The new youth poll by Harvard’s Institute of Politics found that when likely voters under 30 were asked about a general election match-up between the two parties’ front-runners, 61% said they would vote for Mrs. Clinton, 25% said Mr. Trump, and 14% were not sure.
