Michigan: Trump Continues His Dominance over the Republicans

The latest Michigan polls by Detroit News/WDIV-TV and FOX 2 Detroit/Mitchell have revealed that Donald Trump holds a commanding lead over his Republican opponents.

Detroit News/WDIV-TV:

  • Donald Trump – 25%
  • Ted Cruz – 15%
  • Marco Rubio – 12%
  • John Kasich – 11%

Fox 2 Detroit/Mitchell:

  • Donald Trump – 41%
  • Ted Cruz – 11%
  • John Kasich – 11%
  • Marco Rubio – 10%

With South Carolina behind us, Donald Trump has emerged victorious and has managed to amalgamate more Republican voters.

One of the biggest stories out of South Carolina, besides Trump’s victory, was Jeb Bush suspending his campaign. After wasting nearly $150 million to finish near last place, Bush threw in the towel.

At this point, Trump seems unbeatable. He continues to win primary after primary, the polls all favor him, and he striking the right tones with Republican voters, who are tired of the establishment and want a candidate that is willing to speak his mind. Trump fits all of these labels and will more than likely win the Republican nomination at this point.

Ted Cruz is a little too far right for some voters and his intense devotion to religion might hurt him in more centrist conservative states. The fact that Cruz lost in South Carolina, a state with a large religious population, should indicate that religion alone will not propel him to the White House.
