Remember this the next time the Orange Menace claims he beats Grandma in all the polls.
Republicans are eager to win back the White House in 2016. A new Fox News national poll finds both John Kasich and Ted Cruz ahead of Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton in hypothetical matchups, while Donald Trump trails her.
Kasich does best against Clinton. He has a double-digit advantage and also comes in above the 50 percent mark: 51 percent to Clinton’s 40 percent.
Cruz is preferred over Clinton by three percentage points (47-44 percent).
Clinton tops GOP front-runner Donald Trump by 11 points (49-38 percent).
The Ohio governor’s advantage comes mostly from independents; they support him over Clinton by 36 points. Plus, Kasich steals the largest number of Democrats (17 percent).
Kasich and Cruz also outperform Trump against Bernie Sanders. The Democrat leads Trump by 14 points — and tops Cruz by a narrower four-point margin. Kasich has a one-point edge over Sanders (44-43 percent).
There’s still time to regain our sanity, folks. The psychopath Trump keeps lying, but here’s the reality:
Next time Trump says he beats Hillary in most polls, show him the last 27 polls where he only leads in two of them. pic.twitter.com/t3jRIrfhUv

This is a crazy thought, but considering Trump is the worst possible GOP candidate come November, perhaps Fox ought to consider offering his opponents equal airtime? Meanwhile, here’s a good laugh. Enjoy:
