Maybe you will enjoy them! Or maybe you won't! But here they are either way!
Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton leads Republican front-runner Donald Trump by double digits in a new CNN-ORC national poll as the 2016 race turns toward the general election.

Clinton earns 54 percent support while Trump garners 41 percent support. The numbers come as Trump's main rival, Sen. Ted Cruz, dropped out of the race, virtually clearing the way for Trump to clinch the nomination.

Clinton's delegate lead over rival Sen. Bernie Sanders is also nearly insurmountable, despite her loss in Indiana Tuesday.

The poll shows several major demographic struggles for Trump. The real estate mogul is tied with Clinton among men but trailing her among women by 26 percentage points.

He leads whites by 9 points, but trails nonwhites by a whopping 67 points. He also trails among independents by 11 points.
Here are some more numbers!
Paul Begala, a longtime Clinton adviser involved in the Priorities USA Action super-PAC, believes Clinton would have a shot with Republican foreign policy voters, as well as married women. Mitt Romney won married women by 7 points in 2012, while Trump currently has a 12-point deficit with them.
Whooooooooops that is a 19-point difference! I wonder if it has anything to do with the way Trump talks about women?
