Call it the “Spinal Tap” debate — because it’s going up to 11 candidates, and you might need to get an actual spinal tap after watching it.
A new poll from Democratic-aligned Public Policy Polling shows a remarkable state of belief among Republican voters, about who exactly was or wasn’t born in America.
Ben Carson is emerging as the new alternative to Donald Trump in the key early caucus state of Iowa — bringing all the right-wing Tea Party appeal, but maybe with a more appealing, polite sort of style.
If someone wants to look at the polls showing Donald Trump ahead, the best place to look is… Donald Trump’s Twitter account, where the candidate is more than happy to talk about it. And when he’s not touting his own poll numbers, he’s badmouthing someone else’s.
Hillary Clinton might be falling behind Bernie Sanders in New Hampshire — but she’s still ahead by a huge — even overwhelming — margin in the first caucus state of Iowa.
The new poll even finds The Donald leading a variety of other candidates in potential two-way races — which would dispel the idea that Trump might just have been ahead because of divided opposition in a very wide field.
With Hillary Clinton getting knocked about by press coverage of her emails, could there be another Democratic hope? A new round of polls suggest that it’s someone who’s been under our noses the whole time: Vice President Joe Biden.
The latest polls are showing continued momentum for the bombastic Donald Trump — and also for Ben Carson, the right-winger with a more calm delivery.
A funny thing happened to Donald Trump after the controversy of his loud, public crass remarks aimed at Fox anchor Megyn Kelly: He’s still blowing the competition right out of the water.
Trump is ahead with 24 percent support — the same level he had before last week’s debate — and trailed by Jeb Bush at only 12 percent.
Both polls also show the same list of the top ten contenders: Trump, Bush, Walker, Cruz, Huckabee, Carson, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Chris Christie, and John Kasich.
John Kasich might just edge out Rick Perry for the coveted last podium in next week’s big debate — a vindication of his late entrance into the race less than two weeks ago, which gained him publicity at a crucial time.
The polls show Hillary Clinton trailing in crucial swing states — but at the same time, the Democrats have advantages nationally in some key fundamentals.
The polls that have come out this week show a clear pattern: Donald Trump is on the rise among Republicans. And that might just be their worst nightmare.
An actual billionaire on the Democratic side — someone like George Soros or Tom Steyer — could simply set up a pro-Trump SuperPAC, funded by “dark money.”
At the same time, the Kaiser poll also found that those who disapprove of the decision largely remain set in their views even if it is explained that the decision will help people.
