Media deception that Trump can’t beat Hillary?

Donald Trump mean decisiveA Christian political analyst contends the polls that show Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton beating either Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) or the other leading Republican candidate, Donald Trump, are not accurate.   

In a recent Real Clear Politics compilation of head to head polls, Clinton leads Trump by an average of more than 10 and a half points.

And the supposed odds against Cruz aren’t much better, as the Democratic front runner leads him by an average of nearly three points. Ironically, John Kasich — who has no chance of getting enough delegates to secure the nomination — beats Clinton by an RCP average of more than six points.

American Family Association Director of Governmental Affairs Sandy Rios is not confident with any nationwide poll showing that Clinton can beat any Republican candidate.  

"We see what's happening in her own primaries,” Rios contends. “She cannot even win among her own voters.”

The pro-family advocate also points out that current scandals have also marred her electability with progressive voters.

“She's also in serious trouble with the FBI,” Rios explains. “It's only a press that paints a picture that is not a true picture that could make people think the Democrats are not in severe trouble in their primaries.”

Therefore, Rios is far from convinced that polls often touted by the media are much to be concerned about.

“I do not believe that polls at this point that show that Hillary can beat Republicans are accurate,” she added. “I really don't."

Consequently, Rios — who supports Cruz — believes that in spite of the polls, Trump can defeat Clinton.

"I think [if] Donald Trump [is] pitted against Hillary Clinton, he would be a formidable candidate against her because he is so much more likeable,” Rios argues “She is really so terribly unlikeable."

Speaking of Trump …

Clinton is not the only one worrying about Trump in the presidential race, as one conservative organization that pushes pro-growth economic policies hopes that an anti-Trump ad it has been running in Wisconsin will help Cruz win today's Republican primary in the Badger State.  

The Club for Growth Action (CGA) launched a $1 million dollar television and digital ad campaign in Wisconsin. The ad encourages Republicans to rally around Cruz in a bid to knock off his real estate mogul contender.  

CGA Spokesman Doug Sachtleben says that his organization’s latest ad has a focused message.

"What we said this time is if you don't support Donald Trump, then vote for Cruz — don't vote for Kasich,” Sachtleben shared. “And it's not necessarily intended to be an anti-Kasich ad.”

The conservative spokesman went on to explain the rationale of the ad in greater detail.

“The ad is called ‘MATH,’ and that's really what the ad says” Sachtleben continued. “It comes down to simple math at this point. Cruz has the best opportunity. Kasich doesn't have a path to the nomination at this point, and so we've said to voters in Wisconsin vote for Ted Cruz. He's the guy that you want."

Sachtleben says his organization is encouraged by the recent Marquette University poll which has Cruz leading Trump by 10 points.

"If you move from Marquette's poll in February to March, you see Cruz go from 19 to 40 which is really dramatic,” the CGA representative concluded. “Now obviously you've had some candidates who dropped in the meantime and take it down effectively to a two man race. We really believe this could be a game-changer in terms of momentum and going forward."

Club for Growth Action has officially endorsed Cruz in his 2016 GOP bid for the White House.
