Donald Trump’s latest poll numbers are bad news for the rest of the GOP Presidential field.
Trump has the support of nearly 50% of Republicans nationwide, nearly tripling his closest competitor, Texas Senator Ted Cruz.
According to The Hill:
“Donald Trump has more than double the voter support of any other Republican White House hopeful nationwide, according to a new poll.
Four in 10 Americans are backing the real estate mogul’s campaign after his victory in the New Hampshire primary last Tuesday, according to a Morning Consult survey released Friday.
Trump earns 44 percent support from registered Republican and Republican-leaning independent voters. Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) comes in a distant second, with 17 percent.
Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson and Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.) are in third, with 10 percent each.
Trailing them are former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, with 8 percent, and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, with 4 percent.”
