Poll: Trump Drops 12 Points in One Week
Voters are starting to catch on to Donald Trump’s intense racism, which has resulted in a downtrend in the polls. The vocal Republican candidate has lost over 12 points in the polls in one week.
According to the Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted between Nov. 23 and Nov. 27, Trump’s support dropped to 31 from 43 percent.
The Hill reports:
The downtrend comes after a week of controversial comments he made about Muslims living in America, suggesting he would “surveil” mosques to root out domestic terrorist plots.He also suggested a registered database for U.S. Muslims, which drew comparisons to Nazi Germany’s mandatory registration of Jews.
Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson also fell but finished second in the poll with 15 percent support.
Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) tie for third with 8 percent support each. Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush comes in fifth with 7 percent support.
The five-day rolling average sample ranged from 464 to 347 online respondents and has a credibility interval of 5.2 to 6.1 percentage points.
