    Donald Trump retakes lead in GOP race; Ted Cruz makes gains: poll

    In the Republican primary race, the newest NBC News/SurveyMonkey online poll shows Donald Trump has the frontrunner spot to himself, with 28% support among Republican and independent voters who lean Republican. Support for Ben Carson, who was tied with Trump in last month's online poll, has fallen off by 8 points and the former neurosurgeon is now tied with Ted Cruz at 18%. Trailing not too far behind is Marco Rubio, at 11%. The next tier of candidates has a lot of catching up to do, with Jeb Bush at 4% and Chris Christie and Carly Fiorina each with 3%.


    During the volatile primary season, the attention that is gained from being the lead candidate in the polls can be a mixed blessing. The media tends to shift its focus to those candidates leading the race - and that spotlight can seem especially harsh to those who are newer to the political scene. At the same time, rival candidates are quick to target any apparent or imagined flaw of those in the lead. This is what happened to Ben Carson during the last two weeks, as he came under scrutiny for biographical details in his memoir and criticism for his lack of foreign policy expertise.

    Carson and the other Republican candidates still have more than two months before the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire primary to gain traction. Looking at a number of subgroups may offer some clues as to how the early contests could go. The NBC News/SurveyMonkey poll was conducted nationwide of 5,775 adults, including 2,440 Republican and Republican-leaning voters, which allows for us to look at key voting blocs.

    Ben Carson is still the preferred candidate of 25% of white evangelicals, but Donald Trump (23%) and Ted Cruz (22%) have clearly eaten away at what used to be the main pillar of Carson support. Among those who identify as very conservative, Ted Cruz now has the highest level of support, with 40%, overtaking both Carson (15%) and Trump (28%).

    Carson has also seen his backing erode among both men and women, and their vote preferences are now being diverted to other candidates.

    Among those with college degrees or more, the Republican race is utterly divided, with Trump, Carson, Cruz and Rubio getting nearly equal levels of support. Trump has regained his lead among leaned Republican voters with high school degrees or less. And Ted Cruz has made gains among all these groups in the last month.

    Rubio is the one to watch out for.

    i'm starting to become convinced that rubio has no chance. he's the new establishment darling but one of these ads will sink him quickly (that's if he ever rises enough to even have ads run against him)

    George Soros he owns the main stream media now, trying to stop Trump because the Left is scared to death of him. No Muslim's would be rounded up and gassed but that is what they want people to think by relating having a list of who is in the country to what happened to the Jews. Muslim's might be deported if they start causing trouble and that is what the Left is really worried about.They might lose some voters which is the true reason the Left is bringing them in anyway!
    You see what the Muslims are doing in all the other countries once they get big enough numbers if you watch the video's on youtube. The media will not show you the Muslim's rioting in other countries all over the world. They make their no go zones and then start making demands for courts with Shariah Law and riot if they don't get what they want. They'll eventually be doing it here too!

    OP should be banned for implying that Trump ever lost his lead :fil:


    Trump's at 39% in the latest Reuters 5-day rolling poll, almost TRIPLE 2nd place.

    He's up by 7 in Iowa, 14 in New Hampshire, and 9 in South Carolina.

    Carson's descent has begun. Rubio doesn't seem able to get above 13%.

    Cruz has basically co-opted Trump's message and has some heat going right now. Carson was easy to take out; Rubio is/will be easy to take out. Cruz is tougher because his conservative credentials are pretty solid, he's smart, and he's knowledgeable.

    I think Trump could easily win the WH if you ask me(which no one has)
    I don't think Cruz could-the dude does seem off somehow

    Rubio-all I got is this picture in my mind--this guy owns him they'll say--the thumbs up seem like he's telling Marco he's a good boy

    yeah, i think cruz will have a much tougher time winning a general. even though i think cruz is probably somewhat honest, he does give off a used car salesman/televangelist vibe.

    i think trump would win very easily. cruz could probably win, but i think it'd be a lot harder and a lot closer.

    i hope trump is able to lump cruz and rubio in together as a couple of overly ambitious career politicians that voters shouldn't trust. the problem is that cruz has been nothing but nice to trump, which makes it harder for trump to attack him.

    Sorry Itd but Trump has no chance of being the nominee.
    He is a fun side show and nothing more.
    People will never take him seriously as a candidate.

    the only one who's running the risk of not being taken seriously is you is you if you don't wise up to reality.

    oops, too late :oops:

    You people know that I am going to be merciless after the July primaries when someone other than Trump is nominated so be careful what you say because I'm taking notes.
