Washington, DC — With Super Tuesday voters heading to the polls in 13 states, a new poll shows either Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders would defeat Republican front-runner Donald Trump in a hypothetical general election match-up.

The CNN/ORC poll, released Tuesday morning, particularly shows Clinton’s lead growing over Trump in a head-to-head race.

However, Clinton would likely face a stronger challenge should Florida Sen. Marco Rubio or Texas Sen. Ted Cruz capture the Republican nomination for president

Sanders, who enjoys the most positive favorable rating of any presidential candidate in the field, according to the poll, tops all three Republicans by wide margins.
