Trump Leads in National Polls

Billionaire GOP primary candidate Donald Trump is now leading the Republican field in the latest national poll from The Economist/YouGov.

Trump is four points ahead of both former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, who are tied for second place. The poll was taken July 4-6 of 1,000 registered voters.

  • Donald Trump: 15 percent
  • Jeb Bush: 11 percent
  • Rand Paul: 11 percent
  • Scott Walker: 9 percent
  • Marco Rubio: 9 percent
  • Mike Huckabee: 9 percent
  • Ben Carson: 7 percent
  • Chris Christie: 6 percent
  • Ted Cruz: 4 percent
  • Carly Fiorina: 3 percent
  • Rick Perry: 2 percent
  • Rick Santorum: 2 percent
  • John Kasich: 2 percent
  • Lindsey Graham: 1 percent
  • George Pataki: 0 percent

In addition, 12 percent of registered voters said that Trump is their second-choice pick. When the two numbers are combined, that means one-in-four Republican voters see real estate mogul as either their first or second choice.  Hard to argue with that, no matter what the mainstream media is trying to spin about his candidacy. 

Seems Trump’s recent comments on immigration may be hitting a nerve. Two-thirds of those who said Trump was either their first or second choice also said that they are tea party supporters, and several of his supporters identified as “very conservative”.

Trump’s favorable rating has continually increased in recent weeks. In mid-June, 38 percent of Republicans had a favorable view of the reality TV star. That number has since jumped 11 percentage points, with 49 percent of GOP voters now saying they view him favorably.

However, many Republicans don’t think Trump will actually win the nomination… or is that just what the GOP establishment is trying to sell them?

Right now, only 7 percent of registered Republican voters think Trump will be the GOP’s presidential nominee in 2016. Twenty-nine percent said it will be Bush, 12 percent expect Paul to win the nomination, and Rubio and Walker are tied with 8 percentage points.   But Trump has said, he is not used to losing!

These new number come out just as Trump heads to Los Angeles.

Trump is also leading the GOP field in North Carolina, according a new poll by the Public Policy Polling group.

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
