The 2016 presidential election continues to pick up steam as the year progresses. Many candidates have now dropped out of the race and the field has narrowed considerably since it began late last year.
While Donald Trump has maintained a lead on the Republican side, it has narrowed as Ted Cruz has gained after the first few months of primaries. On the Democrat side, Hillary Clinton’s lead has narrowed considerably as Bernie Sanders has picked up big wins in some of the more recent primaries such as Michigan and Wisconsin (the latest USA Today poll tracking shows Clinton and Sanders nearly deadlocked).
Federal employees tend to vote in high numbers, pay close attention to the candidates and the issues that matter to them and, of course, are impacted by the results of a national election both as an American citizen and also in their employment as a federal worker.
