Trump, Carson Combine for Over Half of GOP Support

With a mere 48 hours remaining until the second GOP presidential debate, Republican voters appear undeterred in their commitment to the two non-politicians in the field.

According to the latest WashPo-ABC poll, support for Donald Trump and Ben Carson combines for over half of the numbers for the entire field, with 33% and 20%, respectively.

What’s more, at least 60% of GOP voters say they want a candidate that has experience beyond politics, and two-thirds of those voters indicated either Trump or Carson as their top choice.

Perhaps most surprising among the poll’s results is the collapse of former leaders in the field Jeb Bush and Scott Walker who have fallen from the high teens to single digits in a matter of weeks.
