Donald Trump leads GOP field in latest poll By Nick Gass 7/14/15 3:38 PM EDT Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Donald Trump continues to resonate with likely Republican primary voters, coming out on top in the latest Suffolk University/USA Today poll, out Tuesday. Among voters identifying as Republican, or independents who plan to vote in their states’ Republican primaries or caucuses, the real-estate mogul picked up 17 percent. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush followed with 14 percent, with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker at 8 percent, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz at 6 percent, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio at 5 percent, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee at 4 percent, and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie grabbing 3 percent. Those receiving less than 2 percent: former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, former HP executive Carly Fiorina, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, former New York Gov. George Pataki and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham. The latest poll comes on the heels of a Trump event in Phoenix last weekend, which drew thousands of supporters and a fair number of protesters upset with his various statements in which he declared that rapists and murderers are coming across the border from Mexico and from elsewhere. Last Friday, he met with the families of people killed by undocumented Mexican immigrants. And last weekend, he was joined on stage by Jamiel Shaw, a man who talked about how an undocumented immigrant shot and killed his son.
