trumpMore than any other Republican candidate for president, Donald Trump has won his party’s trust on top issues and now stands as the clear leader in the race for the Republican nomination. A new CNN/ORC poll finds Trump with the support of 24% of Republican registered voters. His nearest competitor, Jeb Bush, stands 11 points behind at 13%. Just behind Bush, Ben Carson has 9%, Marco Rubio and Scott Walker 8%, Rand Paul 6%, Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina and John Kasich all land at 5%, with Mike Huckabee rounding out the top 10 at 4%.

Trump is the biggest gainer in the poll, up 6 points since July according to the first nationwide CNN/ORC poll since the top candidates debated in Cleveland on August 6. Carson gained 5 points and Fiorina 4 points. Trump has also boosted his favorability numbers among Republicans: 58% have a favorable view of Trump now; that figure stood at 50% in the July survey.

  1. A better way to present the survey would be to measure Trump going one on one with the other leading candidates (Bush and Carson seem to be the leading “others” runners). I suspect that in a two way race with either of them, Trump would not be first.

  2. Clear proof that HKB”H is running the election. Here we had over a dozen well-qualified, experienced candidates — and in comes a billionaire who says he’s a regular guy, with zero political experience, who says (on a daily basis) wild things, that each alone would knock out any other candidate – and he’s winning by a mile! Stand back and be amazed!

  3. With all the scandal surrounding Hillary, I thought it would be a tough election for her…. But if she’s running against trump, she will probably win by a landslide. He’s a big mouth with no clear plan of how to run a government, he only knows how to Criticize without providing any alternate plans. But still…. The fact that he’s even an option for president should be a loud and clear message to the government that they’re all doing a lousy job that people would even consider trump.
