“I understand it’s going to be the nature of any primary for folks to discuss the differences between themselves on policy issues, and I think that’s fine”, Spicer said. “And now that Trump’s at or near the top of the presidential polls, he recognizes that if he wants to have staying power, he has to show he has some general election electability”.

In a pair of new NBC-Marist polls trump has a 7 point lead over Bush in New Hampshire. Trump said. “I am leading across the board, and then you hit me with a poll that I’ve never seen this before”.
