Sixteen Republicans are running for the party’s presidential nomination in the November 2016 election. Should I pander to the hatreds of my most prejudiced primary voters?
But “normally” doesn’t apply to Donald Trump.
That made Christie the leading candidate among Trump voters. It’s set for August. 6.
The poll found that Trump is doing better among independents and those likely to be first-time primary voters.
Other candidates are fighting for attention.
Priebus added that having so many Republicans fighting for the nod is actually a benefit to voters.
But that does not mean he will cease to be a problem for Priebus.
Trump’s incendiary comments about immigrants have been particularly problematic for the National Republican Party, whose 2012 “autopsy” report called for a million outreach effort to Latinos, African-Americans and Asians. He is also highlighting lines of division within the party and the broader electorate that are problematic for the GOP.
Trump is scheduled to be the keynote speaker at an August. 11 Lincoln Day joint fundraiser for the Genesee and Saginaw County Republican parties.
The implication there is that both Trump and Bush have caps on the support they’ll receive, which is probably the case to some extent.
If anyone tells you they know who will be the Republican nominee for President – they’re lying.
Trump expressed his disdain for politicians who constantly debate. Orderly debates would have been boring, but that was the point.
Trump, the billionaire real estate mogul, has risen to top of the crowded Republican field in recent polls – fueled by a sometimes contentious campaign. “Absolutely, if they’re not fair, that would be a factor”.
Taking positions that appeal to the party faithful keeps your poll numbers high.
America is a politically divided country.
Real-estate magnate Donald Trump has vowed for weeks that if he wins the Republican presidential nomination, he would win the Latino vote in the general election.
Still, Priebus noted that he believes “our candidates should pledge not to run as a third-party candidate”. But those who try can change the dynamic of a race – and history. A Republican congressman from South Florida has a theory that Trump may have been planted by democrats to help get Hillary Clinton elected.
Republicans recognize offending Trump is politically risky. If the celebrity businessman were not in the race, more than 4-in-10 of his supporters say they would be backing Chris Christie, Scott Walker, or Ted Cruz-all three of whom would likely pick up 3 to 4 additional percentage points, according to the pollsters.
CNN’s new poll shows Donald Trump at the head of the pack with 18% support.
