Poll: Trump Leads as Carson Fades
Donald Trump continues to dominate the field of Republicans, maintaining a 10 point lead over Marco Rubio. Former second place candidate Ben Carson has started to fade.
Trump has been leading the Republicans for several months, while his opponents have swapped second place. Carson managed to topple Trump in a few obscure polls, but Trump has been consistent when it comes to polling averages.
The Hill reports:
Trump has 27% support from likely GOP primary voters nationwide in a survey released Wednesday. He’s followed by a second tier that’s bunched closely together: Florida Sen. Marco Rubio is at 17%, while Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and neurosurgeon Ben Carson are at 16% each.
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has 5% support, and no other candidates top 3%.
It’s a major drop from Carson, who a month ago was neck-and-neck with Trump, whose lead was then just 24% to Carson’s 23%.
