Donald Trump Enjoys Commanding “First In The South” Lead

MOGUL DRAWS MORE SUPPORT THAN NEXT THREE CONTENDERS … COMBINED || By FITSNEWS || Say-anything 2016 GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump has opened up a commanding 3-to-1 lead over his closest rival in early voting South Carolina.  In fact he’s outpolling his nearest three competitors in the Palmetto State ……


|| By FITSNEWS || Say-anything 2016 GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump has opened up a commanding 3-to-1 lead over his closest rival in early voting South Carolina.  In fact he’s outpolling his nearest three competitors in the Palmetto State … combined.

Just … wow.

According to a poll from Florida-based Gravis Marketing (.pdf here), Trump is supported by 34 percent of “First in the South” GOP primary voters.  That’s more than the combined support of the next three candidates in the poll – retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson (10.9 percent), former Florida governor Jeb Bush (10.5 percent) and Wisconsin governor Scott Walker (10.3 percent).

“He’s kicking serious ass,” one Palmetto politico told FITS.

Kicking ass … and taking names.

Previous Palmetto polls had Bush and Walker enjoying frontrunner status … but that was before Trump’s surge, which is capitalizing on widespread voter disaffection with the status quo.

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida is in fifth place according to the Gravis survey with 6 percent, followed by social conservative favorite Mike Huckabee, with 5.5 percent.  Home state U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham is in seventh place – supported by only 4.9 percent of South Carolina voters.

That’s awful ….

Behind him is U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas (3.4 percent), Ohio governor John Kasich (3.3 percent), New Jersey governor Chris Christie (2.5 percent), former Texas governor Rick Perry (2.5 percent) and former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina (2.4 percent).

Wait … aren’t we missing someone?

Yes … Rand Paul.

The one-time frontrunner – whose national campaign has been in disarray of late – received the support of only 1 percent of those surveyed.

Ouch …

Gravis polled 609 GOP primary participants between July 29-30, 2015 on behalf of the One America News Network.  Its survey has a margin of error of plus or minus four percentage points.  A separate survey of 209 Democratic primary voters found Hillary Clinton enjoying the support of 77.5 percent of those polled.  That’s more than a 10-to-1 lead over her nearest rival,  Socialist independent U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, who is supported by 7.6 percent of Palmetto State Democrats.

The interesting thing about DJT is that by in large people are saying the same things about him that were said about Ronald Reagan. We’ll see how the ball bounces in this case.

erneba August 3, 2015 at 5:34 pm

In certain respects, Trump is the antithesis to the two former Republican nominees, McCain and Romney.
You are right in respect to Reagan, Trump is outspoken with a different style than Reagan, but infinity more powerful than the last two nominees. But, I still think more Republicans are contrasting Trump to the last two nominees, and they are liking what they see. For example, I think many Repubs are seeing Jeb Bush as a “democrat lite” candidate and that has no deep appeal. People can get emotional about Trump because you can sense he is speaking from the heart, even if you don’t agree with him.

euwe max August 3, 2015 at 7:13 pm

From the HEART?

erneba August 3, 2015 at 7:43 pm

Yes, meaning you try for open and honest communication.
I am not trying to imply that Trump has a “big heart ” in a humanitarian sense.
Just saying I thought he was honest and straightforward in what he said about illegal immigration. I f he was to act like the normal politician, he would not have touched that subject with a ten foot pole.(ten foot pole meaning ten foot pole)

Trump is kicking ass. He has fought Hillary and at the same time he has been the only candidate forced to fight both the Republican establishment and the Koch Brothers. The people like what Trump has to say. They don’t want the same old establishment line, and now more and more people are beginning to see the dangers of a candidate owned by the Koch Brothers. Anyone who went to California this week, to kiss the feet of the Kochs should never be President. Trump cannot be bought. He will do what he thinks right regardless of what the establishment says, and he sure as heck won’t be owned by the Kochs.
Those who doubt he is real are in for real surprise.

LOL August 3, 2015 at 6:20 pm

No surprises with Trump. Zero chance of being elected. If he’s even allowed in the primaries.

jerseydave August 3, 2015 at 6:27 pm

He is currently in the Primaries. Unless the Party moved to try banning him. Even if they do, it is the local party folks in the states who run the Caucuses and Primaries. Any attempt to strong arm them into excluding a popular candidate would spark a massive backlash against the National Party.

Poll out today also said 33% would NOT vote for Trump. 24% would NOT vote for Bush.

It is Walker or Rubio.

Trump 2016 August 4, 2015 at 10:06 am

Walker is dumb as dirt. Already punked twice now, once by a radio show host pretending to be Charles Koch, and once by a guy who got him to hold up a picture of a billion dollar check from the Koch Brothers. Walker is the guy who walked around school all day with a kick me sign on his back. Not to mention he is bought and paid for by the Kochs.

Rubio, is an anchor baby. He should not even be a citizen. He and his parents should go back to Cuba where they belong. We don’t need another immigrant president.

CalvinCool August 4, 2015 at 10:20 am

This is from an interview from a month ago with David Letterman. Does this man really sound like a genuine conservative to you?

Trump 2016 August 4, 2015 at 10:30 am

Well I trust Trump way more than the son of an immigrant Communist, who says he has changed. I ain’t running the risk on that one buddy.

Trump is a business man, I trust him to do what is right for the country and speak his mind. You say he is a liberal, Bush and Romney say they were conservative. I am sick and tired of you dividers trying to break us into camps and label us. We need a lot of new ideas, instead of the same ole establishment line. We need someone who will speak his mind and let the people decide.


CalvinCool August 4, 2015 at 10:11 am

I am one of those voters that would stay home in an election between Trump and Hillary. Both are progressives, at least Hillary is honest about it. Any idiot that thinks Trump isn’t a liberal or a crony capitalist needs to do research to listen to the words that have come out of his mouth over the last few decades. I’d rather sit it out and give a real conservative like Cruz a chance to win 4 years from now against a President Hillary.

Trump 2016 August 4, 2015 at 10:22 am

Yea, well sit it out. We sure as heck don’t need people like you to win. Cruz, is the son of an immigrant born in Canada. Hell, his father,Rafael Bienvenido Cruz, was not even a US Citizen until 2005 and he fought for CASTRO during the Cuban Revolution. Cruz did not even give up his Canadian Citizenship until last year. We do not need another immigrant president. Much less the son of a Communist Guerilla. What is it with you dumb asses.

CalvinCool August 4, 2015 at 10:44 am

I won’t be the only one sitting it out, moron. He is mistrusted by 40% of Republican voters and over 60% of the rest of the country. He’s about the only one that Hillary could beat aside from Jebbito. Where was Trump during the battle to defund Obamacare, stop the Gang of 8 bill, prevent a debt ceiling increase, etc? When has Donald Trump ever personally put himself on the line to stop the GOP establishment? That’s right, never. I don’t care if Cruz is the son of an immigrant, he loves this country and his record in the Senate and his actions prove it more than anything Trump has ever done.

Trump 2016 August 4, 2015 at 11:00 am

Cruz has done nothing. Absolutely nothing. He has alienated even his own party in the Senate, so he is totally ineffective; and he has never even had a job, that wasn’t on the taxpayer’s dime.
As for what Trump was doing, he was running a business, making money, employing people, paying taxes, and paying payroll. He is not an elected official, thank god. We sure as heck have had enough of givng the job to ass holes who can’t support themselves other than on the Taxpayer’s dime. That includes Rubio, Cruz, Rand, Walker, Graham, Christie, and most of the rest of the pack.

I want something different. AND I WANT SOMEONE WHOSE PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS WERE BORN IN THIS COUNTRY. I don’t want the son of a communist guerilla or the son of an exiled Cuban Batista.

Soft Sigh from Hell August 3, 2015 at 7:59 pm

I don’t care if he makes it to the nominations. I just want his backers mad. (And that’s a natural condition for them.)

I have no problem with Trump but I think his numbers will drop some after the debate when all of the top 10 candidates have a chance to express their views on the issues.

Jack August 3, 2015 at 8:30 pm

What is there to hear?. At least 4 of the ten are just going to say what the Koch Brothers tell them to. And we already know what they want. To run the Country.

Speak D Truth August 3, 2015 at 9:10 pm

Other than Trump that leaves you with 5 that won’t say what the Koch Brothers want them to say.

Jack August 4, 2015 at 9:58 am

Actually, we know what Bush is going to say as well, and the remaining contestants have no chance at winning. Well, for that matter there are really only three possible winners. Trump, Bush and Charles Koch.
