Trump’s Pollster: Bernie Would Have Won

Tony Fabrizio, a pollster for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, said on Monday night that he believes Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) would have beaten Trump in a general-election contest. “There’s no question that if it had been anybody other than Clinton or anybody other than Trump, that race would not have been as close as it was either way,” Fabrizio said at a Harvard University Institute of Politics event. “It would not have been.” Asked specifically if Sanders would have had better odds against Trump, Fabrizio said: “I think Sanders beats Trump.” He added: “I think Sanders would have had the ability to reach a lot of the less than college-educated, low-income white voters.” Fabrizio did not immediately respond to a request for additional comment.
