Trump, Carson Take Nearly Half of New Poll
Donald Trump and Ben Carson dominated the GOP in the latest poll released by Fairleigh Dickinson University on Friday.
The poll results had Trump earning 26 percent of the vote, while Carson took 22 percent.
The Hill reports:
The poll was conducted before Carson made his controversial comments about guns this week.
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) finishes third in the poll with 8 percent support, followed by Carly Fiorina, another candidate with no elected office experience, who ties with former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush for fourth in the poll with 7 percent support. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee finishes just outside of the top five with 6 percent.
The poll surveyed 305 Republicans from Oct. 1 – 5. The survey is the New Jersey-based university’s first national poll of the 2016 election cycle and comes with a relatively high margin of error, compared to other national polls, of 5.6 percent.
