Donald Trump is in First Place in GOP Primary Poll
Vox News ^

Posted on 7/9/2015, 8:09:00 PM by Din Maker

Donald Trump has been inching upward in the polls lately, and now we finally have one from The Economist and YouGov showing him in a clear first place.


“Trump supporters may be making more of a statement than voting for someone they consider a contender,” Kathy Frankovic writes at YouGov. “Just one in five of Trump’s supporters think Trump will win the nomination.” Other tidbits Frankovic points out are that Trump’s supporters tend to back the Tea Party and to identify as “very conservative,” and are less likely to be college-educated.

The new poll is probably a bit dispiriting for Jeb Bush, though. He had gotten a small bump to first place in three national polls conducted after his June announcement, and his team clearly hoped this would finally let him break away from the rest of the large field. Now, though, he’s down at 11 points, tied for second with Rand Paul. This new poll could be an outlier, or it could be the first sign that Jeb’s announcement bounce has worn off. (Bush’s fantastic fundraising news should help with any disappointment he feels, though)

But Trump’s 15 percent is not a particularly impressive performance in a crowded field — Bush, Scott Walker, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Ben Carson, and Mike Huckabee have all hit or passed that number in at least one poll. Also, Trump hasn’t yet led any polls in Iowa or New Hampshire, which are generally more important than national polls. Still, it’s national polls that are being used to determine which candidates qualify for the first GOP debate, and Trump clearly makes that cut at this point.

But the big question about whether Trump will show up on stage in Cleveland on August 6 isn’t about his polling — it’s about whether he’ll actually turn in the required financial disclosures to the FEC. As Slate’s Josh Voorhees writes, many are skeptical that Trump would publicly disclose so many details of his “business empire.” It’s up to Trump to prove them wrong.


For all you FReepers who say if a RINO is nominated you will stay home or vote Third Party, here’s your Third Party guy.

Any third party that isn’t Communist pretty much guarantees a Dem win.
As Trump himself said the other day, without Ross Perot, nobody today would remember who the Clintons are.

Look, people – I’m not saying that Freepers have no long-term memory issues, but let’s look at these same Freepers just three weeks ago, when it was – Trump and Oprah sitting in a tree :

Trump wants Oprah as his 2016 running mate

After declaring his run for the White House Tuesday, Trump appeared on ABC and said Oprah Winfrey would complete his presidential dream ticket.

“I think Oprah would be great. I’d love to have Oprah,” Trump said. “I think we’d win easily, actually.”


Can’t believe anyone here is dense enough to think this clown is a either a conservative or a serious candidate.

He is to conservatism what Rachel Dolezal is to the black race. He wasn’t born one; he didn’t share our experience or our values until it was a way to get ahead.

OK, people – these were just the first six responses, in order.
Want more?
To: elhombrelibre

Heh, true.

Except, does anyone really think he “shares our values” now? Sure, he said a lot of conservative-sounding things yesterday. But this is a guy who will say anything, do anything, if he thinks it will benefit him (and “benefit him” can mean anything from make him more money to get him more attention).

I was wondering when we would see Ross Perot II. Its the only way Bill Clinton got elected (with 43% of the vote) because Ross pulled 20%. I think Trump will eventually run as a third party, pull enough votes from republicans to put Hillary in the oval office.

One Freeper jumps on the “he was only funnin” bandwagon, to no avail:
To: rrrod
You are right on the money…..Donald Trump was kidding……the left-wing, Obamabot media, like the buffoons they are, jumped right on it….making fools out of themselves, as they usually do!!!

You mean like everyone else in this thread (but you) just did? I had no idea that the left-wing Obamabot media had so many Free Republic accounts,

LMAO!!! Democrats are in full panic mode. Not only will Hillary be beaten badly…but the stain of failed, incompetent, POTUS, Obama will cause the entire Democrat Party to suffer a devastating defeat in 2016!!!

He’s going to win..

Trump continues to be an utter clown. He has zero chance of winning a Republican nomination – none. His highwater mark is probably within the next week. His schtick will grow old very fast.

The problem with Trump is that what he will do is fairly predictable (not guaranteed, but likely). He will lose in the GOP primaries, blame the “establishment” for his loss and then jump over and and finish out his bid for President as a 3rd party independent where he will pull another Perot and help Hillary get elected. There are just enough politically ignorant people on the right to waste their vote on him.

Trump is not a conservative btw, his past statements and donations prove that.

“I am certainly not a Trump supporter, but this mention of Oprah was in 1999…not yesterday. And given what we know about Trump, he wasn’t serious.”.

Did you read the article? He said it 1999, yes, and again on ABC news yesterday, after his announcement.

Trump is enjoying his joke run, that’s for sure.

Well, it looks like this was a complete false alarm, but it brings to mind the 2013 mass shooting where 12 people were killed. The shooter was black so the incident has been consigned to the memory hole, unlike the current hysteria over the Confederate flag and the white shooter of 9 black church members.

  1. Freeper, re Trump: “But this is a guy who will say anything, do anything, if he thinks it will benefit him”

    Learned something from Willard’s 2012 run, did he? But did the freeperati?
