Newest CNN poll shows Donald Trump leading his nearest competitor by 21 points.

Courtesy of CNN:

Donald Trump seems set to end 2015 as the dominant force in the race for next year's Republican nomination for president, with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz now a clear -- yet distant -- second after a strong debate performance, a new CNN/ORC poll released on Wednesday has found. 

Trump tops the field with 39%, according to the poll of Republican and Republican-leaning registered voters. That's more than double the share backing Cruz, who, at 18%, has inched up 2 points since the last CNN/ORC poll, which was taken in late November. 

Trump has been a constant atop the polls since his ascent to the lead in July, and this new poll marks the first time Cruz stands significantly apart from the other candidates vying for the nomination. Behind those two, Ben Carson and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio have each slipped a few points and now stand tied at 10%.

The poll was taken after the last GOP debate, but before Trump's most recent remarks about Hillary Clinton having been "Schlonged" in the 2008 race.

But let's face it those remarks will not hurt him at all.

In fact they will probably move him even further up in the polls.

Personally I see this as an early Christmas present for Hillary, as I cannot imagine who she would rather run against more.

Trump himself is already warning her that he is likely to go on the attack.
I suggest he goes for it, Hills could use a little help getting her base fired up.

By the way some have argued that this election cycle is all about changing the way things are done in Washington, and that is why Trump will win the election.

Number one, Ha! 

And secondly let me remind them that Hillary Clinton would be the first woman President. Nothing will upset the status quo more than that.

    Please let it be so, although I still am on the fence as to whether he is actually running. If he does by some bizarre confluence of circumstances win the nomination, the debates between he and Ms. Clinton should prove to be grand entertainment because this silly entitled fuck is going to have his fat ass handed to him by a woman so intellectually beyond him that it's damn near immeasurable. He'll think he's been eaten by a coyote and shit offa cliff.

    1. And when she does, as you say, I hope she loses her shit in doing so! I hope she kicks his ass so bad he tastes his ow shit.

    Anybody But Bush....

  4. I predict that Secretary Clinton—should the need arise—will be able to out-tough Mr. Trump … while remaining ladylike throughout.

    1. Anonymous2:52 PM

      Yes, I think so, too. The GOP has driven the discussion into the gutter. It really has become that: gutter snipe mentality. Sad. Is it the 24/7 MTV reality TV to blame? The nonstop, drivel that pervades the landscape/TV land? Or just crap!

    2. Anonymous3:43 PM

      Hillary is superior to Donald Trump as to being much smarter and very much more experienced than he in government.

      Trump would be a disaster and cost the country one heck of a lot more money based on his proposed tax plan!!!

      Slam dunking an idiot is an entirely ladylike activity. I should know, I do it I'm heels on a daily basis on behalf of my customers every day.

    This "warning" is pitiful. I'm sure he is warning he would go after Bill's past, but Trump has a past also. He has two ex wives and I'm sure many other women. He takes it to the gutter because he has nothing else. Sickening!!!

    The Democrats need to be careful. I've met a lot of people who have never voted for anything but Democrats who plan to vote for Trump. never underestimate the force of celebrity in the US. Arnold the terminator showed me in CA that people will vote for a Republican celebrity. There are a lot of people who watch reality TV and love it.

    I won't vote for Hillary, but I won't vote for Trump either. The DNC coronate Hillary at any cost crowd might be surprised that she is not as big a shoe in as they think she is.

    1. Anonymous3:40 PM

      Hillary has my vote! She is the only one that will beat The Donald IF he is picked as the Republican candidate! She has far more experience than any other candidate on both sides of the aisle!

    2. Sanders beats Trump, and ***any*** of the rest of the Republican field in one-to-one match-ups. He can and will win.

      Clinton has too much baggage, is too much of a theocrat, and is fledged in the Wall Street nest... all besides the sheer arrogance of assuming that her name will assure her the throne.

      No more Bushes. No more Clintons.

    Do you really think Republicans will pick him as their candidate for POTUS? The media is hyping Trump up - it's non stop on MSNBC. Makes me sick to my stomach.

    Trump is already talking as though he IS the POTUS candidate and he isn't!!! The guy is a fucker and a horrid representative of America.

    All the media has to do is stop talking about him. Let him pay for air time to get on their channels. Idiots!

    Watch out Americans, Trump is going for the sophisticate voter now, as well as capturing the lowlife. He challenged George Stephanopolous to say what journalists Putin killed and he obviously couldn't produce any. George asked Trump if he was comparing the US to Russia but Trump didn't quite have the balls to bring up the Iraq war where the US slaughtered a million people on false pretences of WMD's.

  9. Anonymous3:08 PM

    Trump is trying to frighten Hillary. I truly don't think Republicans will pick him as their candidate. She is far smarter than he and will focus on what counts!

  10. "Be careful"? Is he threatening her? He is directing that to a former First Lady and a former Secretary of State. As former First Lady, she has the right to Secret Service protection. I know he's asked for it, but has he gotten it? Who does he think is going to do his dirty work?

    1. Anonymous4:32 PM

      Yes, he and Carson requested it back in October, and it was approved in November. Since he's so rich and all, you'd think he'd pay for his own security. Oh, right. He needs his own crew to rough up protesters and keep reporters out of his "hair".

    Per Andy Borowtiz today, "Experts predicting Trump's downfall vastly undercounting nation's idiots."

    Fox News built this monster: it has been feeding its followers this exact kind of bigotry, hatred, stupidness, hatefulness, and downright idiocy for years now. Make no mistake about this: Fox News and Republicans own this monstrosity. It was getting out of control in 2008 when Sarah Palin literally called the opposition candidate a terrorist. It was 'Muslim this, and Muslim terrorist that.' They own this. Donald the bigot racist Trump is theirs. There's no going back now. The only hope this country has is younger, more intelligent voters of various ethnic backgrounds. The old, white bigots are dying off; but not quickly enough. And they have spawned a new generation of bigots. A Confederate flag, racist, white-only party of illiterate, mindless, trickle-down knuckledraggers.
    Now, let me tell you what I really think!!!

  13. If 39% of GOP voters support Trump, does that mean 61% DO NOT WANT HIM?

  14. Anonymous4:38 PM

    I think it's funny how nobody mentions Bernie in these polls. He's broken records in fundraising, he got more new Twitter followers than the other two during the Dem debate, and more than the clowns during that Republican thing-whatever it was. Hillary has a lot of baggage that Trump can legitimately go after in a debate-Bernie is pretty much Bernie, the same guy he's always been, fighting for us, not rich contributors.

    1. A Superfan In Atlanta5:10 PM

      I think Bernie needs to stick with what's working. Slow, steady and under the radar. Wouldn't want his supporters to get Berned-out too soon before the election. See what I did there?

    2. Anonymous5:51 PM

      How is Bernie going to compete with the Republican funded by Kochs in the general election next November? Is he going to rely only $25 contributions here and there refusing to take money from corporate big donors? The Republicans will eat him alive in negative commercials in all the big media outlets. The Kochs will pull out all the stops and they will spend a billion dollars to gain the White House. Watch the voting machines.

      5:51 Look at the difference here between the popular vote and the electoral vote:

  15. This is how I picture Trump in my head now:


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
