National polls at this point in the presidential primary process are not good predictors of what’s going to happen in November, but they’re by definition indicative of where national sentiment is at—and polls out today, at least, found that there is no clear national frontrunner in either party. First was a Quinnipiac survey that found Hillary Clinton leading Bernie Sanders by only two points nationally among Democrats, while a few minutes ago, the Wall Street Journal published the results of a poll that found Ted Cruz taking a two-point national lead over previous frontrunner Donald Trump.
