VIA| This is very, very good news for Donald Trump. There are a number of polls this morning that are showing his numbers are up even more after taking a strong stance on halting immigration into the country, with the emphasis on Muslims, until we can put a system in place that will adequately vet them. Ted Cruz is now is second place and it is an anti-establishment race out there. From the beginning, Trump’s detractors have claimed he would quit. He is saying he’s not going anywhere and why should he? He’s massively ahead in the polls. Now, they claim he will lose in one or two primary states. I doubt it, but if he does, that’s not the end of the game. Trump looks unstoppable at this point.
From Conservative Critic:
Donald Trump has a dominating lead of 35 percent in the GOP presidential primary, a new poll shows — outdistancing his closest competitor, Sen. Ted Cruz, by nearly 20 percentage points.
The New York Times/CBS poll shows, however, nearly two-thirds of all voters say they’re concerned or frightened about the prospect of Trump in the White House.
The Times reports its survey was taken most before his controversial statement calling for a temporary ban on Muslims being allowed entry into the country.
Here’s the standings in the GOP race:
- Trump: 35 percent
- Cruz: 16 percent
- Retired pediatric neurosurgeon Ben Carson: 13 percent
- Florida Sen. Marco Rubio: 9 percent
The Times reports the rest of the field stands at 4 percent or less.
The full results of the survey are being released late Thursday afternoon.
According to the survey, 64 percent of Republicans haven’t made up their mind about their final choice of candidates, though the majority of Trump supporters say their decision is firm, the Times reports.
Overall, 24 percent of voters expressed concern and 40 percent fear about what Trump would do if elected president.
The figures were far different among Republicans; 24 percent were excited, and 41 percent optimistic about a Trump White House, while a full one-third of Republicans say they’re scared or concerned about the prospect, the survey shows.
On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton holds her lead against Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders 52 percent to 32 percent. Only 2 percent support Martin O’Malley.
The margin of error is plus or minus 4 percentage points.
Notice how they couch the results in saying how so many are afraid of Trump. No they aren’t. They are afraid of Obama and Hillary. They are screaming for Donald Trump or Ted Cruz and the establishment putz’s just can’t admit it to themselves. It terrifies them. Per CBS: “Thirty-five percent of Republican primary voters support Trump, up 13 points since October, and his highest level of support in CBS News polling. Ted Cruz (16 percent) has moved into second place, while Ben Carson, who led the October poll, has dropped to third. Trump voters continue to be more firm in their support. Fifty-one percent of his backers say their minds are made up about him, compared to just a quarter of voters who support a candidate other than Trump. Trump leads among both men and women. He has more than a 20-point lead among non-college graduates (and a smaller lead among those with a college degree). But Cruz has made inroads with evangelicals. Carson led with this group in October, but now Cruz and Trump are running neck and neck among them; the two candidates are also close among very conservative Republicans.” Ted Cruz is the only candidate who would not turn on Trump. They are friends. One of them will get the nomination and it will turn the Beltway inside out. I can’t wait.
