Poll: Trump Lapping the Field in Georgia
Donald Trump is pulling away from the pack in Georgia. The Republican presidential candidate netted 43.1 percent of the vote.
In contrast, Ted Cruz received 16.2 percent, Marco Rubio 10.6 percent, and Ben Carson came in fourth with 6.7 percent.
Despite Trump’s disastrous comments about Muslims, he continues to lead the party and looks unbeatable at this point.
The Hill reports:
The retired neurosurgeon’s decline comes amid a visit to Atlanta on Tuesday. Carson spent much of his speech at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center trying to bolster his foreign policy credentials in the wake of a series of recent terrorist attacks.
Carson made waves Friday when he threatened to leave the Republican Party, one day after a report that senior GOP officials had met to discuss a potential brokered convention.
The poll surveyed 800 likely Republican primary voters in Georgia on Dec. 10. The margin of error is 3.3 percent.
