Trump Wins Primary Polls in Wisconsin, Florida, South Carolina

The latest polls have revealed that Donald Trump has successfully parried off the other Republican candidates and won his match-ups in South Carolina, Florida, and Wisconsin.

South Carolina:

  • Donald Trump – 29%
  • Ben Carson – 16%
  • Carly Fiorina – 11%
  • Ted Cruz – 8%

Florida:

  • Donald Trump – 25%
  • Marco Rubio – 14%
  • Jeb Bush – 13%
  • Carly Fiorina – 11%
  • Ben Carson – 9%

Wisconsin:

  • Donald Trump – 20%
  • Ben Carson – 16%
  • Marco Rubio – 14%
  • Carly Fiorina – 11%

Trump managed to win all three of the states listed. He won decisively in South Carolina and Florida, but struggled in Wisconsin. His popularity as a candidate is waning as voters discover how disastrous his policies are and his lack of knowledge about the inner workings of the political system.

Another interesting stat from these polls was how poorly Ben Carson polled in Florida. He came in fifth place, polling behind Trump, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, and Carly Fiorina. Florida was also Bush’s best poll of the three, but part of that is due to his past service as the state’s governor.

Rubio is starting to gain traction in the polls and seems like the perfect candidate for the Republicans to ride into 2016. If he can gain momentum and secure votes, he will easily be able to embarrass Trump in a legitimate political debate.

Fiorina is still holding on, but her time as a top candidate is fizzling out. She has been caught lying over the whole Planned Parenthood debacle, and instead of admitting fault, she is sticking to her story, digging her grave deeper and deeper by the second. In addition, her poor track record with HP makes her a dangerous candidate and someone that is unfit to lead the United States.

Trump Wins the Latest Georgia Primary

The latest poll in Georgia by WSB and Landmark has revealed that Donald Trump is in the lead for the Republican Party, followed in second place by Ben Carson.

Which Republican candidate would you vote for?

  • Donald Trump – 31%
  • Ben Carson – 18%
  • Carly Fiorina – 13%
  • Marco Rubio – 9%
  • Jeb Bush – 8%
  • Ted Cruz – 8%

Trump maintained his lead in a traditionally Republican state. If Trump wants to win the Republican nomination, he will need to lock down the major red states and win over votes of voters that are on the fence. He currently holds a respectable lead over the rest of the candidates, but there is a real fear that he is running out of steam now that he has announced his major tax reform plan.

Carson continues to trail Trump, but he has maintained second place for several weeks. His campaign is in healthy shape, he is receiving a lot of donations, and he continues to appeal to Republicans who view religion as an important topic. Carson hasn’t shied away from calling out Muslims and has made claims that they couldn’t effectively lead the country.

Carly Fiorina is barely hanging on to third place. Her campaign is pushing forward using the fake Planned Parenthood tapes. The existence of the evidence Fiorina cites has been proven fake, but she continues to cling to her delusional reality that these tapes actually exist and are relevant in a scientific discussion. Still, the majority of Republican voters will side with any candidate who stands against Planned Parenthood and she may be able to siphon votes from angry conservatives who are looking for a strongly pro-life candidate.

Clinton Defeats Trump, Bush, Loses to Fiorina, Carson

The latest poll by NBC News and the Wall Street Journal had Hillary Clinton beating Donald Trump, while losing to both Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina.

Head-to-Head Polls:

  • Hillary Clinton 49% – Donald Trump 39%
  • Hillary Clinton 44% – Carly Fiorina 45%
  • Hillary Clinton 45% – Jeb Bush 44%
  • Hillary Clinton 45% – Ben Carson 46%

Clinton polled well against the majority of the Republican candidates. She defeated Trump and Jeb Bush, but lost to both Carson and Fiorina. Trump still leads the Republican Party, despite his decline in the polls. Clinton’s defeat of Trump shows that she is able to beat the top rated candidate. Her losses to both Carson and Fiorina were well within the margin of error. If Fiorina and Clinton were to win their nominations for their parties, it would set up an interesting race for president.

In terms of credibility, Clinton is a more credible candidate than Fiorina, who has continuously stood by her claims about the existence of the fake Planned Parenthood tapes. The media has dissected her story and proven it false. Regardless, she stands by the story and is using it as fuel for her campaign.

If the election is between Trump and Clinton, Trump may find some support through his new tax plan. His new plan lowers taxes for the poor and middle class and raises them for the wealthy. The average American may see this as a massive boost and may consider voting for Trump, who has vowed to run the country like a business and to improve the economy. Still, Trump’s overt racism will hurt his chances and he will need to push forward with genuine and helpful ideas if he wants to stand a chance in an upcoming election.

National Polls: Trump and Clinton Maintain Their Leads

The latest poll by NBC and the Wall Street Journal has placed Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in the lead of their respective parties.

Which Republican candidate would you vote for?

  • Donald Trump – 21%
  • Ben Carson – 20%
  • Carly Fiorina – 11%
  • Marco Rubio – 11%
  • Jeb Bush – 7%
  • Ted Cruz – 5%

Which Democratic candidate would you vote for?

  • Hillary Clinton – 42%
  • Bernie Sanders – 35%
  • Joe Biden – 17%

Trumps time as the top contender of the Republicans may be over. Ben Carson is no suitable replacement, but he is popular amongst extreme conservatives and he is more knowledgeable on issues like foreign policy, healthcare, and other important issues beyond Trumps Mexican wall solution to immigration. Carly Fiorina, Marco Rubio, and Jeb Bush, are all fighting for third place. For now, Fiorina and Rubio hold it, but the three have been swapping third place for several weeks and will continue to do so.

Across the line, the Democrats are still led by Clinton. Bernie Sanders continues to dent her lead and is coming close to replacing her as the top candidate. In select polls, Sanders has polled better than Clinton, but he is starting to gain traction in larger polls, demonstrating that he is a legitimate candidate and that he may be able to top Clinton come nomination time.

Sanders and Trump Top New Hampshire Primaries

The latest poll by CNN and WMUR has revealed that Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump are ahead of their respective parties.

Which Democratic candidate would you vote for?

  • Bernie Sanders – 46%
  • Hillary Clinton – 30%
  • Joe Biden – 14%

Which Republican candidate would you vote for?

  • Donald Trump – 26%
  • Carly Fiorina – 16%
  • Marco Rubio – 9%
  • Ben Carson – 8%
  • John Kasich – 7%
  • Jeb Bush – 7%

Once again, Sanders has taken the top spot for the Democrats in a major poll. The same outcome occurred in the previous week in other polls, but Hillary Clinton quickly regained the lead in our national and state-side polls. The race for the Democrats ticket is heating up and Sanders is battling hard to try and overtake Clinton and win over undecided voters.

Trump continues to struggle in the polls. He topped the Republicans in this poll, but Carly Fiorina is quickly catching up, and she has overtaken Ben Carson. Prior to this poll, Carson enjoyed second place in the polls for several weeks, but his radical views may be costing him votes with moderate conservatives who are more in line with Fiorina. Trump will continue to lead for the next few weeks. However, his lack of political knowledge is beginning to show and he may start to drop in the polls if other candidates can embarrass him on important issues that require more than one line answers.

Trump and Clinton Win Their Iowa Primaries

The latest poll by PPP has revealed that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have topped their respective parties. Both candidates have maintained the lead for a steady amount of time and look poised to keep the lead heading closer to their party’s official nomination vote.

Which Democrat candidate would you vote for?

  • Hillary Clinton – 43%
  • Bernie Sanders – 22%
  • Joe Biden – 17%

Which Republican candidate would you vote for?

  • Donald trump – 24%
  • Ben Carson – 17%
  • Carly Fiorina – 13%
  • Ted Cruz – 8%
  • Marco Rubio – 8%
  • Jeb Bush – 6%

The results for the Democrats are pretty typical. Clinton holds a 20 point lead over Sanders and Joe Biden continues to steal votes from both sides even though he hasn’t announced a presidential run. Sanders is working hard to secure more votes and he is gaining popularity, but it may be too little too late for him to overtake Clinton and lead the Democrats into the next election.

On the Republican side of things, Trump is still the king and the candidate to beat. Carson remains popular, but Carly Fiorina has started to erode his lead and both Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio have started to gain a few percentage points in recent polls. Jeb Bush continues to decline and appears to be a fringe candidate. Months ago, he and Scott Walker were among the top candidates, but now Walker has officially withdrawn his bid and Bush may be heading in the same direction.

Donald Trump Leads the Latest CNN Poll

The latest poll by CNN has revealed that Donald Trump is still in the lead of the Republican Party, despite the recent surge by Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina.

Which Republican candidate would you vote for?

  • Donald Trump – 24%
  • Carly Fiorina – 15%
  • Ben Carson – 14%
  • Marco Rubio – 11%
  • Jeb Bush – 9%
  • Ted Cruz – 6%
  • Mike Huckabee – 6%

Trump has been slumping in the polls since the debate. His performance was respectable, but voters were attracted to Fiorina and her platform. Trump has continually assaulted Fiorina, making fun of her face and claiming that she was a bad candidate. Despite this, she deflected the criticism and made it clear that Trump was a bad leader because of his reliance on his ego.

Carson has dropped to third, but he is still very much in the race for the Republican nomination. He has slipped in the polls due to the strong performance of Fiorina. He continues to make an impression on Republican voters with his classical conservative platform, but he may struggle to win over voters from states that suffer from racial tensions and issues of prejudice.

Jeb Bush’s performance in the debate was iffy and his frequent defense of his brother’s administration may hurt his chances at being elected. Most Americans are worried about electing another Bush as it would cement the presidency as a pseudo-dynasty, something that is completely against the core values of the presidency and the U.S. Constitution.
