Donald Trump clobbers Hillary Clinton in a national match-up — among regular viewers of The Apprentice, that is. According to new poll results, loyal Apprentice fans from Trump's hosting years prefer him to Clinton by a margin of 28 points, while those who never really watched the show favor Clinton by 15 points.

"While there is nothing counter-intuitive about these findings, they are the first mathematical measure of the extent to which Trump has been able to cash-in on his celebrity," the poll notes.

And for Republicans who aren't Trump fans but are convinced of his inevitability, maybe this means watching a few Apprentice re-runs will help you warm up to the GOP frontrunner.
