Ed Rollins, speaking at the Concordia Summit in New York, said that while he doesn’t think Trump will receive the nomination, his campaign has already caused a major disruption.
Those were among the remarks Trump made during a wide-ranging video interview with CNBC published Thursday.
Surprisingly, Trump has the lead not only among moderate/liberal Republicans, but conservative Republicans as well.
Sixty-six percent of GOP voters say they are more likely to vote for a candidate who brings new ideas and different approaches to Washington, compared to 29 percent who say experience and a proven record in government are more important to them.
Trump’s many negative comments about minority groups are hurting Republican support among Hispanics.
It’s interesting to juxtapose that with numbers for Carson and Paul – they are the only others who have released a tax plan – when it comes to the socioeconomic status of voters. “I know how to solve problems”. In recent days, the real-estate mogul has repeatedly slammed media outlets that have reported polls that show him losing ground to Carson, Fiorina, and Rubio.
Jeb Bush (who earlier in the week was trying to convince early morning television hosts that he was “having fun” on the campaign trail) polled at 4 percent.
“Well, I’m not a masochist, OK?” the real-estate tycoon said. Trump told Harwood. “Right now, I’m leading every poll and in most cases big“.
“I’m leading Iowa, I’m leading New Hampshire, I’m leading South Carolina, I’m leading everything.”
“That’s good. (But) if that changed – if I was like a few of these people at 1 percent and 2 percent, there’s no reason to continue forward”. I go back to the business.
