New CNN Poll: Trump, Carson Surge Continues

September 10, 2015

by Maggie Gallagher

Trump_CarsonIn the latest CNN national poll, Trump continues his surge–up 8 points since the August poll–to lead the field with 32 percent support. Carson doubled his support, rising ten points to 19 percent.  The Fiorina surge appears to have stalled: she’s down to 3 percent in this poll.

More GOP voters believe Trump will be the nominee, even though they say they would prefer Ben Carson. Bush, declining 4 points to 9 percent, is in third place. Huckabee and Walker are tied at 5 percent, continuing the Walker slump. (In August, 14 percent of GOP voters thought Walker would be the nominee. That number is down to 1 percent).

32 percent of white Evangelicals back Trump, but 28 percent now support Carson.

    Trump is NOT a corrupt politician, he has EXPERIENCE in creating jobs and
    negotiating multimillion dollar deals succesfully. Carson has NONE. he is more equivalent to just another organizer and he does not come across STRONG enough to fight his way out of a wet paper bag.  Trump will kick butt in
    Congress and will help solve our illegal immigrant issue the way it
    should be, with a wall and by ENFORCING our immgration laws that have
    needed to be done for decades. Our government has put us into a huge
    financial and immgration mess that if it is not stopped it will bankrupt
    our Country and put us into a 3rd World country. TRUMP is the only
    non-political man with the strength and integrity to keep that from
    happening. We the People have to get this right this time. Our
    politicians have proven to many times that they will let us down, from
    BOTH parties. I will not trust a politician to do what it takes to get
    it done, they are all bought and paid for by their campaign supporters
    and THAT is who they will work for. NOT WE THE PEOPLE. Carson is a nice guy, but we don’t need another NICE GUY, we need a REAL LEADER. TRUMP FOR 2016.
