Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is climbing to his highest support yet in a new national poll.
The real estate mogul earned a broad 41 percent support from Republicans and Republican-leaning registered voters in a new national Monmouth University poll released today. This is Trump’s highest support and widest lead of any national poll yet this election cycle.
In the poll conducted Dec. 10-13, after unveiling his proposed Muslim ban, Trump holds a staggering 27-point lead over Sen. Ted Cruz, who holds 14 percent support. Sen. Marco Rubio has 10 percent support and Ben Carson has 9 percent. Trump climbed 13 percentage points since the last Monmouth University poll in late October.
According to this poll Trump is now 27 points ahead of his closest rival Ted Cruz.
That is an almost unbelievable number.
As I said in the headline tonight is yet another GOP debate.
As usual I will feature an open thread that I will periodically update with drunken tweets and posts as the clown car careens along.
Maybe I should start drinking now. After all like my father used to say, it must be happy hour somewhere.
