VIA| Whatever he’s doing, he’s doing it right, apparently…
In the Reuters/Ipsos 5-day tracking poll that samples 534 Republicans, over the last week, Donald Trump has surged to a massive national lead in the GOP presidential primary. Currently, the billionaire businessman sits at 42% with likely Republican primary voters. His closest competitor is Ben Carson, who sits at just below 25%.
Last week both men were pretty much tied up at around 25%. That is a 17 point surge for Trump.
Among all Republicans, Trumps enjoys a 34% to 20% lead over Carson.
It seems like Trump can’t lose, no matter what he blurts out of his mouth on any given day.
His major talking point is of course illegal immigration (and he said he’d have all illegals gone within two years), but who are we kidding?
That’s not going to happen.
I’d like to see more substance out of Trump, rather than just telling people what they want to hear.
See the elections of 2008 and 2012.
If the general election were held today, the billionaire real estate mogul would earn the GOP nomination hands down, and I’m sure he’d carry more Independents than Hilary Clinton.
Sen. Marco Rubio is said to be the establishment favorite at the moment (seeing as how Jeb Bush is tanking like crazy), but a Trump victory is still a Republican victory, so the GOP had better start making nice with “The Donald.”
Even though he’s not my first choice, I think we can all agree that Trump over Hillary or Bernie is what’s best for the country. Yes, I understand that that might be the understatement of the year.
