Trump has big lead in another poll
Donald Trump is well ahead of the pack heading into Wednesday night’s third Republican presidential debate, according to a new poll.This poll may be an outlier since other recent polls show the race tightening and a CBS News/NY Times poll has Carson in the lead. It could also be an indication of the difficulty of polling this year.
Trump has a 14-point lead over his nearest competitor before the contest in Boulder, Colo., according to a One America News Network survey.
Pollsters found support for the real estate mogul at 35.6 percent, compared with 21.7 percent for retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson. Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.) trails the pair, with 10.7 percent.
“It’s all Trump going into the third debate,” One America CEO Robert Herring Sr. said in a statement Tuesday morning.
“Mr. Trump’s continued top national ranking will also make him the candidate to target Wednesday night,” he added.
Former Gov. Jeb Bush (Fla.) ranks fourth in the new poll, with 7.6 percent. Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina follow, with 5.9 percent to her 5.7 percent, respectively.
