With the presidential primaries in full swing, Donald Trump maintains his sizable lead over the rest of the Republican field. Among Republican or Republican-leaning registered voters, Trump has 35% support compared to 18% for Ted Cruz and 13% for Marco Rubio, according to results from the latest NBC News|SurveyMonkey Weekly Election Tracking Poll for the week of December 28, 2015 through January 3, 2016. The poll was conducted online among a national sample of 3,700 adults aged 18 and over.
Trump leads among men with 39% of support, compared to 21% of men who support Cruz and 13% of men who support Rubio. Trump also leads among women with 29% support, while Cruz and Rubio have about equal support from women—13% and 14%, respectively.
Trump leads among women? Can you believe that shit?
But that's not all.
According to the poll Trump also receives the lion's share of the Evangelical vote, even against Ben Carson and Ted Cruz, who specifically targeted that demographic.
Okay I think somebody needs to just say it, so here it goes.
Unless Donald Trump decides for himself that he no longer wants to campaign for this nomination, I think it is safe to say that it is his for the taking.
I know that is the opposite to what I, and just about everybody else have been saying, but I think it is time to face facts.
The 2016 presidential race is going to come down to Hillary vs Trump, and it is going to be the weirdest thing any of us have ever seen in politics.
