Washington, Apr 28 (Prensa Latina) The democratic political strategist Dave Saunders, today stated his belief that the Republican Donald Trump would easily defeat Hillary Clinton if both candidates face off in the presidential elections in November.
Speaking to The Daily Caller, the politician stated that the exodus of the white working-class voters from the Democratics is not for cultural reasons, but as a result of the economic problems.
I know a lot of Democrats -men, women, whites and blacks- here in Southern Virginia, who would vote for Trump for that reason and his populist message, Saunders told the newspaper.
With extensive experience in campaigns of the "Blue Party", the strategist said that many white working-class voters in the south have already left the party for cultural reasons, and this they will leave in the north for economic reasons.
He added that this is the new era of economic populism, and it is a matter of survival for many people.
In his analysis of the failure of former Secretary of State to win in November in a likely showdown against Trump, Saunders addressed the strong support she receives from black voters, but warned that she has lost constantly against her rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders, owing to the support of white men, especially the youth.
In this regard, he added, Saunders and Trump have very similar messages, but a different focus, and a large number of those supporting the Saunders will go over to the New York tycoon.
He reiterated his belief that the Republican candidate nominee will win the general election, but Paul Begala, adviser to the Super Pac pro-Clinton Priorities USA Action, refuted that idea and said that Clinton's losses are seen as inordinate if you take into account that she has been the target of many more attacks than the other candidates.
Hillary will be president, said Begala.
The average of the polls published by the Real Clear Politics site shows that she will win 49 percent to 40.5 percent, should Trump and Clinton square off in November.
The almost infallible prediction of the political model by Moody Analytics stated in January that the Democratic nominee will win the presidential race, but the election would be a tight one.
The firm also found that she will surpass her Republican rival by 326 votes to 212.
Prior to this, another prediction reported that the Democrat would achieve 270 electoral votes, surpassing the Republican candidate's 268.
