National poll: Clinton, Sanders both top Trump

If this poll is at all accurate it would seem to confirm what I’ve been saying for a while, i.e. that the US has leaped sharply leftward over the past decade, as evidenced by the apparent fact that a self-proclaimed socialist or a woman who personifies 70s feminism is more electable than a populist-nationalist and widely perceived racist, and that the right is becoming more militant and trying to go down with a fight as it continues to lose power. Trump appears to represent an insurgency by the militant right which is popular within the context of the GOP, but unpopular within the context of American society as a whole. These patterns would seem to fit well with the ATS position of attacking the Left from the left (i.e. revolutionary overthrow of state, capital, and empire, not “democratic socialism,” “progressivism,””identity politics” and other crap)  while cultivating the Right as coalition partners towards decentralization (the pan-secessionist strategy).
