The latest on the presidential horse race.

Trump Stops the Slide, Wins Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania

The latest string of polls by Quinnipiac have revealed that Donald Trump is back on top of the Republicans. He was briefly knocked out of the lead, but has managed to regain it in a series of three important polls in Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.

Which Republican candidate would you vote for?

Florida

  • Donald Trump – 28%
  • Ben Carson – 16%
  • Marco Rubio – 14%
  • Jeb Bush – 12%

Ohio

  • Donald Trump – 23%
  • Ben Carson – 18%
  • John Kasich – 13%
  • Ted Cruz – 11%
  • Carly Fiorina – 10%

Pennsylvania

  • Donald Trump – 23%
  • Ben Carson – 17%
  • Marco Rubio – 12%
  • Carly Fiorina – 8%

Trump won all three polls, well over the margin of error. Trump decimated both Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush in Florida, despite the two having strong ties to the state. Ben Carson came in second, but was a notable 12 points behind.

In Ohio, Trump’s lead over Carson was much smaller, but he managed to edge out the other candidates decisively. The same story occurred in Pennsylvania where Trump narrowly defeated Carson.

Trump supporters were worried that the candidate was losing steam, and while this may still be the truth, he remains a powerful candidate who understands how to pander to American voters with his “pro-American” agenda that is rooted in the American dream and a government that favors big business and making money.
