Sorry Trump, New National Poll Has Cruz Re-taking Top Spot
Donald Trump has been the front runner for months now in the 2016 GOP race.
However, the party is sharply divided on whether or not he should be the nominee.
The establishment can’t stand him and many traditional conservatives can’t stand him.
But yet everyone else, including many non-Republicans can’t get enough.
A poll came out today that showed Donald Trump’s support might not be as strong as his team is saying it is.
Check out who is leading this national poll.
From Washington Examiner:
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has surpassed Donald Trump for the top spot in a new national survey of the Republican presidential race from NBC News/Wall Street Journal.
Cruz leads the poll with the support of 28 percent of those surveyed, followed by Trump at 26 percent, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio at 17 percent, Ohio Gov. John Kasich at 11 percent, and Ben Carson at 10 percent.
Trump dropped seven percentage points since last month, and hit his lowest point in the NBC/WSJ poll since October 2015 when Carson took the top spot. Cruz and Kasich each gained eight percentage points since January, the largest improvement of any candidate, and received their highest level of support ever in the poll.
