GOP front-runner Donald Trump just got great news from a Bloomberg poll released Thursday showing the businessman leading a new revolution of voters holding a commanding lead in seven Southern states that will cast their votes on March 1.
This is critical as it shows Trump shoring up his base and watching it strengthen for a huge day next Tuesday. Voters are dissatisfied with the way Washington DC is run and tired of career politicians who do nothing by talking on the Senate floor instead of making the tough decisions that deal with everyday lives.
From The Hill:
Trump has 37 percent support in the seven states, with Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz tied with 20 percent each.
They are followed by Ben Carson with 8 percent and Gov. John Kasich (R-Ohio) with 6 percent.
Trump also defeats the two senators in hypothetical head-to-head match-ups. When pitted against Cruz, the billionaire business mogul leads 49 to 40 percent. Rubio comes slightly closer, trailing Trump 48 to 44 percent.
Still, the poll shows that there is still some wiggle room among the voters, with 53 percent saying they are still open to voting for someone aside from their current first-choice candidate.
The survey showed slim prospects for potential third-party candidate former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Fifty-six percent say they view him unfavorably, while just 18 percent view him positively.
The poll surveyed more than 1,200 likely Republican primary voters in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia. It has a margin of error of 2.8 percent.
If you look at the grand scheme of things, it’s going to be a long day for all of the candidates trying to catch up with Trump. Senate candidates are not a great fit in my humble opinion for the office of the presidency. If I had my way Gov. Scott Walker Or Gov. Rick Perry should still be on the stage, but they have left so I am pushing trunk as I can.
