Those that said they “would definitely not support” Clinton stands at 11 percent.
The Democratic front-runner runs about even with Bush, Fiorina, and Trump.
Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson also beat Clinton in a matchup, 49 percent to 42 percent.
And he’s still hurling insults at his Republican rivals, calling Florida Sen.
The pollsters said the survey results indicated a “major shakeup” in the race for Florida’s 99 delegates, as the political “outsiders” of Trump, Carson, and Fiorina have surged.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump loves to remind people he’s at the top of the GOP presidential field nearly as much as he enjoys perpetuating the myth President Obama is a Muslim from Kenya.
Speaking at a meeting in South Carolina, Trump cited a poll from SurveyUSA showing that he has the votes of 25 percent of the black respondents in a match-up against Democratic front-runner, Hillary Clinton.
One thing Fiorina (as well as a number of other emerging candidates) has going for her is a decided lack of polarizing baggage – baggage that alienates an entrenched segment of party voters from embracing candidates, like Trump, with abundant name recognition.
Trump later said he was talking not about Fiorina’s appearance, but her “persona”. Meanwhile Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz have been waiting patiently for their opportunity to snatch the nomination. Biden, who continues to struggle with a potential campaign, gets support from 18 percent of Democrats.
“I personally have said that I don’t want there to be millions of people that are permanently barred from (ever) becoming Americans“, Rubio said Monday, adding: “Even though I’m personally open to green cards, that’s a debate that we can have down the road after we’ve seen how the (border security) program has worked”.
The results reinforce a recent CNN/ORC poll that showed an ascendant Fiorina in the wake of her strong debate performance last week.
In terms of overall net favorability, Carson performed better than any candidate of either party, 48 percent favorable to 16 percent unfavorable.
Separately, a new poll in New Hampshire, which holds the first primary of the contest, showed a similar pattern: Trump is atop the field with 26 percent in the survey by the University of New Hampshire, which was released Thursday. Trump led Carson by a 28-to-12 percent margin in an August Quinnipiac poll. But if that proves to be a ceiling on Trump’s support, his long-term prospects would dim as other candidates dropped out. Interviews were conducted by phone among 820 New Hampshire residents, including 344 who had said they planned to vote in the Republican presidential primary.
