Donald Trump leads in Ohio, Florida

Washington (CNN)Donald Trump is narrowly leading Ohio Gov. John Kasich in his state’s Republican primary although the GOP front-runner holds a substantial lead over his rivals in Florida, according to analysis from CNN’s Poll of Polls released Friday.

Hillary Clinton is leading Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders by more than 30 points in the Florida Democratic primary, that same analysis shows.

Ohio and Florida voters go to the polls Tuesday.

In Ohio, Trump has support from 36% of voters while Kasich has 34%. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has 17% while Florida Sen. Marco Rubio is at 8%.

Trump has a much more substantial lead heading into the Florida Republican primary with 40%, according to most recent CNN Poll of Polls averages. He is ahead of Rubio, who is attracting 26% of the vote, by double digits. Cruz has 18% of the vote and Kasich is at 8%.

On the Democratic side, Clinton is leading Sanders by more than 30 points in Florida. The former Secretary of State has 62% of support while Sanders has 31% of the vote.

The analysis for Florida’s Republican primary Poll of Polls comes from an average of the results of the six most recent Florida polls among likely Republican primary voters. The Poll of Polls includes: The Suffolk University Poll conducted March 7-9; the Fox News Poll conducted March 5-8; the Quinnipiac University Poll conducted March 2-7; the Monmouth University Poll conducted March 3-6; the CNN/ORC Poll conducted March 2-6 and the Washington Post/Univision Poll conducted March 2-5.

It’s been so long!

Hi Folks! I apologize that it has been so long since we’ve given you an update. A lot has happened since our last post! Unfortunately we had to leave our home of 3 years at 10 Boylston Place because the lot is being turned into condos. We planned on moving into a warehouse space in Allston in May, but that fell through as well. SO we are back at square one and are looking for a space! If you know of anyone who has a spare garage or other space that they would be willing to let us use for no or very low cost, please email us at thecommunityspoke@gmail.com or get in touch with us via our facebook page. In the meantime, we hope you’re having a great summer and look forward to being able to host you in our new space!

We now have a PayPal account

Hi Folks,

We setup a PayPal account, which you can find a shortcut to on our website. We had a meeting yesterday and decided that we would take donations, as we either need to pay for some sort of security measures and/or start to think about rent. The money would also be going towards replacing the stolen items and, like your previous donations, would go towards purchasing disposable items such as cables and housing.

 

We have decided to hold off on accepting donations of bikes, tools and parts, as the shop is completely empty right now and may remain that way for the remainder of the winter. We are having another planning meeting next week to determine our path forward, and we’ll be sure to keep you updated.

 

Thank you so much for your generous offers of all kinds that we’ve been getting. We appreciate you so much!
