NEW NATIONAL POLL REAFFIRMS DONALD TRUMP’S FRONTRUNNER STATUS
|| By FITSNEWS || A new national poll is reaffirming billionaire real estate mogul Donald Trump’s status as the frontrunner for the GOP presidential nomination – further evidence of the failure of Fox News and other “Republican” establishment forces to take him out.
According to the new CNN/ ORC poll (.pdf here), Trump has the support of 24 percent of registered “Republican” voters and GOP-leaning registered voters – putting him well ahead of former Florida governor Jeb Bush (13 percent), retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson (9 percent), Wisconsin governor Scott Walker (8 percent), U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida (8 percent) and U.S. Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky (6 percent).
Trump is up six percentage points from last month’s CNN/ ORC poll – the biggest gainer in the field – and could do even better in the next survey after GOP voters have had a chance to digest his sweeping immigration reform proposals.
Since June, Trump’s support has doubled.
In addition to national polling, Trump also currently enjoys leads in early-voting Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina. In the “First in the South” Palmetto State, Trump is currently outpolling his nearest three rivals (Carson, Bush and Rubio) combined.
While Bush, Carson, Walker, Rubio and Paul all fight for second-tier status, another field of candidates is struggling to break through the five percent threshold.
Three of them – U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina and Ohio governor John Kasich – hit that mark in this survey, placing them ahead of former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee (4 percent), New Jersey governor Chris Christie (3 percent), former Texas governor Rick Perry and former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania (1 percent).
Three other candidates – Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal, former New York governor George Pataki, former Virginia governor Jim Gilmore and U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina – failed to hit the one percent threshold.
CNN/ ORC’s poll was conducted between August 13-16. Its GOP presidential results were based on interviews with 283 registered “Republican” voters and 183 independent registered voters who say they lean “Republican.” The margin of error of that survey is plus or minus 4.5 percentage points.
Unreal – ain’t it?
Unreal it could work out so well. Trump moves the Republican Party to build the Wall and NO anmesty/citizenship and NO voting for 100 years if ever.Democrat Party is eliminated.
Trump has defeated Bush (the only candidate Hillary had a chance of defeating) and will throw support behind Rubio,Walker or Carson.
That was a lot of dumb for one comment. I’m jealous. Congrats!
Golly Flip. You’re imagination – couple that with a screen writer – what we could accomplish.
Invest in Uhaul, Rocky.Gonna be lots of people moving south of the border shortly.
Yeah, moving to Florida.
Why would Trump throw his support behind anybody? He is in position to win the nomination.
The GOP has given up on 2016. At least Trump is the Pied Piper, leading all the crazies away from the party.
I now believe that Trump may be a long-term factor on the Republican side. He is exhibiting staying power and seems to be getting more at ease with the routine.
Still hedging a bit, but not as much as before.
Meanwhile, on the Democrat side, a survey was conducted of Hillary Clinton supporters, and it was found that one in three Hillary supporters were just as f**king stupid as the other two.
A Trump supporter calling someone else stupid?
Lack of self awareness seems to be a prerequisite for your lot.
“exhibiting staying power”
Just like Viagra!
Yeah that Trump is running around with a political hard-on.
Running around popping his boner into the establishment I suppose.
“If your erection lasts more than four hours, call your friends and brag.” (HT SNL’s “Dr. Porkenheimer’s Boner Juice” infomercial)
I had a neighbor that told me that if I have a Viagra boner that lasts for four hours, please give her a call, anytime, day or night.
Better make sure that puppy is all wrapped up. You don’t want to share too much with such a generous neighbor. She’s probably giving it away to all the neighbors, bless her heart.
You have a good point, but when the “call of the wild ” hits, there is no such thing as overused poontang.
It’s your wiener, not mine.
Hell, take a chance, Columbus did and he discovered Miami.
lol, yea…but Miami is a place….with my luck I’ll discover a new form of VD that will make my dick drop off.
That would be bad, you would become a dickless prick.
You can get that in Miami too.
You live next to Grand Tango and Flip?
According to Mrs. Trump (who I hear is pretty busy in the mid-town hotel circles) – that’s the only one he’s running around with.
Damn you taking my line. I’m still cracking up over that one.
It’s working like a charm!
I look forward to working with Hillary, We have a great baking cookies program.
I’m so glad you guys approve of what I’m doing!
Story’s really not Trump. He’s just voicing how THE PEOPLE of America feel.
Real Story: is seeing how the pundits, pseudo Conservatives and Wish-They-Weres are responding to Trump.
And the question here is: Why has FITSNews not attacked Trump yet?
Conservatives are responding to Trump in droves. Conservatives are a group that FITSNews passionately hates.
Has the fact that Trump has maximized the abject Disgust w/ pop culture and the Democrat Party, to standing ovations, drawn FITSNews into the typical idol-worship practiced on here. Or maybe FITSNews is one of those who believes Trump is in bed to save the Democrat Party.
Or will FITSNews eventually “trump” up some issue that tears it with The Donald, in order to resume the usual hatred directed toward Conservatives.
Watching the America-Haters, who want more Democrats to screw up the country – especially as Hillary implodes- that’s what will be fun to watch.
You realize that poll represents a small fraction of REPUBLICAN voters and likely voters, right? That’s hardly THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
Like those polling for Bernie Sanders…hahahahahahahahahahahah…You stupid fuck….Hahahahahaha..
Nice effort to deflect from the core story – Trumps selling shit sandwiches, and you’re eatin’ ’em with two hands.
They are what they eat. They can’t get enough of Trump’s shit sammies.
You miss the point. Trump has hit a nerve with the American people. It is immigration.
He speaks plainly. A Wall can be built.Illegals can be deported.No amnesty or citizenship.
Democrats are shitting their panties because they can’t win elections without opening the borders to illegals and a whole new group of voters. America has rejected the Democrat Party.
Dems are finished.
Flip, Trump’s hit a nerve with 15% of the American people. Let’s not turn that into a mandate.
No amnesty=No path to citizenship=NO Democrat Party
The IMMIGRATION issue will decide the 2016 elections and Trump already won the debate for public opinion on that issue.
Oh it will, no doubt there buddy. Just not the way you’re thinkin’
We’ll pick them up, leave the gassing to us.
He’s hit a nerve with white bigots. He just gets on everybody else’s nerves. He speaks on a fourth grade level. That’s why it seems ‘plain’ to his undereducated supporters. I imagine Democrats are dancing a jig and trying to not look too excited at the prospect of Trump handing them a easy victory. You need to leave the house and Internet echo chamber. You sound clueless as hell about the real world.
No he hit a nerve with middle America on immigration and the 70% in this country that say if Obama was able to run again they WOULD NOT vote for him.
Keep typing. We’ll talk next summer. When Trump is no longer in the race and you then have to scramble to pick a loser to get behind come November. Until then, enjoy your Derpistan.
No, he hit a nerve on post-middle aged America.
Another kook. Another Goldwater.
Voting for Trump is the ultimate FU to establishment Republicans, Democrats, the ruling Elites, divisive, race baiting, self-serving, shakedown artists who do nothing for their community, career mega-termed politicians, etc…. They all need a wake-up call. Even if he serves one term, you can bet he will accomplish more for the people and the US in that term than the last several Presidents combined. Trump is just programmed that way: to expediently solve problems and cut out the nonsense.
He doesn’t want to be a spectator to America’s downslide into a third world country. Do I recognize he can be a bombastic windbag? Sure. But is Hillary such a prize? Jeb, Rubio, Cruz, …? Heck no.
Obama specializes in moving his failed socialist agenda forward but not our country and it’s citizens.
We’ve been in worse hands.
Its fun watching Trump shit all over the election process, while the other GOP candidates just stand there helplessly. They’ve been courting these wingnuts who only respond to dumb, bigoted crazy talk for so long, that acting even somewhat sensible is seen as a sell-out of ‘traditional values’. You reap what you sow…
Trump is considered right of just about all in the GOP now, and he’s much more VOCAL about it. And he’s drawing ovations, for telling idiots like you to STFU.
The stupid fucks in the media, loathe Trump, and call him the same names you’re calling the Republicans you hate. He’s telling you to get fiuucked, and most of yall are standing there w/ piss running down your legs, while the American people cheer.
Well, let’s be fair. About 75% of Americans are getting to loath Trump.
Bottom line is that Trump won on immigration.
NO amnesty or path to citizenship for a century. This issue connects with the American people as it ties to jobs,crime and national security.
No, what Donaldo did was ensure the GOP will lose the 2016 election. Hint – what state does the GOP have to, and I mean, have to flip (no pun intended) – in order to have a dream of a chance of hitting 270 erectoral votes? Now, how do you think deporting Hispanics plays in Florida? Bye bye.
BTW – did you see the note I had for you where now my own 11-year-old daughter, born here, to US citizen parents, is afraid of being deported. Great job Donald. Even better than Rubio hitting that little kid with the football.
Quit playing victim Rocky.If you aren’t smart enough to explain the law to her and be a daddy then call DSS. Maybe they can help.
Oh I explained it. I explained the law, and that Donald is a ………
Oh.You explained that 11 million people broke the law and as her father you believe law and order doesn’t matter in this country?
I get it.
That and I explained that Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush are “gatos” which in english means pussy cat, only without the cat part, and that Trump would just run third party and ensure the Democrats win.
Oh.Whatever works.Got to be tough teaching your children to hate America and that the rule of law doesn’t matter.
I am sure you will figure it out my friend. :)
Learnign process :)
Hey, don’t we have a bet going on that seafood place in Flagler?
You got it.
“Papaya” in Cuban Spanish.
You still SWEAR Hillary will win in 2016?….Hahahahahaha…You are one Dumb Fuck…Hard to campaign from a jail cell…Hahahahaha…
And just because you and FITSNews ignore her collapse, it’s still happening. (:
This from the man who predicted, Perry, Santorum, Gingrich, Romney in 2012. You sure didn’t pass Political Science in college did ya’!!!!
We have a simpler, more cost effective, final solution to the immigration issue. Send your Untermenschen to us, we have solutions for your third world vermin.
Have you noticed that the elevator company around here is Thyssen-Krupp?
What percent like Hillary?….Hahahahaha…
About 55. Enough. Sorry. Say after me – Madame President.
She’s the only Democrat running with a chance, and all she can get is 55% in her own party.
Hahahahaha…thank you. No one would believe how fucking stupid you are, if you did not demonstrate it. Gracious.
No, 55% nationally. 90% in the party – see our party isn’t fractured into a bunch of nutjobs chasing a snake oil salesman who promises to deport all the brown people. Duh!!!!
I’d stand and clap too if I was being paid to be there. The stupid fucks who watch FoxNews all day are the ones being played. NOBODY is afraid of Trump except the GOP. He’ll have dipshits like you sitting out the election. You are literally handing the election to the Dems by supporting Trump. You are Hillary’s biggest ally right now.
The chickens come home to roost.
Or coots, wingbats, old crows, daffy ducks, loons, and cuckoos.
You know how presidents look when they’re elected,and how they look,later? What’s he gonna fucking look like? Exactly like his anus,although his asshole is better at public speaking;a whiter shade of honky-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=St6jyEFe5WM
He’ll look like – – – – an old fat, aged Irishman with a boozed up red face and a flabby tool in his extra large size 44 pants, somewhat sad as he realizes his wife has done most of the Secret Service in the Lincoln bedroom, sometimes one on one, sometimes three on one, and that she gave Putin a twirl in the private residence. Like that maybe?
how big the flabby tool?
2 incher – not like you. We keep viagra away from you because it endangers air traffic.
you’re incredibly considerate that’s what I like about the South
Keep the pole flying buddy.
yeah,well.i don’t vote,anymore.it isn’t worth the trouble
Your candidate is Hillary….Hahahahahahahahahahaha…you ignorant fuck…hahahahahaha…
What America needs is a crazy Third World dictator like Sadaam or Kahdaffi. The Donald has what it takes to be that.
When asked a tough question by a snappy journalist, The Donald displays the signature: ‘meh’ shrug. (link to picture below) He wants everyone to know who’s boss. He ain’t got time for that shit.
What America needs is a crazy Third World dictator like Sadaam or Kahdaffi….y’all elected on in 2008, you brain-dead and ignorant fuck.
Wrong again, bucktooth.
Yeah, dictators destroying my country kinda piss me off. I’m kinda American like that.
To put in your perspective; Imagine how you’d feel if you had your welfare, Obama-phone, Medicaid and Food stamps taken from you?
I value freedom. You value sitting on your lazy liberal ass, and getting handouts.
Trump said he’ll slap the piss out of you. That’s why you hate him.
Obama phone, LOL.
Spelling bee question one – spell the word – ONE.
What I’m seeing (and FITSNews will pick up on it, when he is told by someone in a couple months) but the Black Community is getting increasingly pissed over Obama sucking off the illegals. Especially when there are no jobs, unless you ‘habla espanol’…
Trump – or the GOP -could exploit that fissure BIGTIME. Especially if the only leader among the Democrats would come from Hillary, Biden of Gore…
Lots of tension between hispanics and blacks. Blacks will not relinquish their status as the top victims in this country. If there is NO race excuse, there is no reason to be on the dole of the Democrat Party…
Couple that with the fact that Obama has bankrupted us, so funds are almost all gone…it could real ugly, real fast, when the handouts stop.
Hi Tango, how’s your blog doing?
I think you’re confusing the parties there big guy.
Bottom line, Trump will not get the launch codes, AKA, failure to launch.
U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina – failed to hit the one percent threshold.
Why doesn’t Lindsey switch parties and run against Hillary? He certainly couldn’t do any WORSE.
Good point, fem vs fem, I love cat fights.
Love him or hate him, but the trump is causing the press and establishment republicans to wet their pants and I don’t see how you can think this is not good.
