The new poll comes a day after another poll of the Hawkeye State displayed mixed signals for the real-estate magnate in the wake of the first presidential debate, which generated another round of controversy for Trump.
Trump’s campaign so far has been dominated by one firestorm after the next, the latest involving Fox News personality Megyn Kelly’s debate questions.
In part of his long speech where he covered many topics, Trump said as president he would fight Ford Motor Company’s decision to move production south of the border. Before Kelly could get to her full question, Trump quipped, “Only Rosie O’Donnell”. “Very weak and that bothers me”, Trump said. “That’s what I’m doing”, he said. However, Trump is a big draw for Fox News and, as Trump will remind you like a vegan who does CrossFit, he continues to lead the polls.
For now, Nugent is on team Trump and isn’t sure what to make of Kelly: “I think she’s playing some games. The people we are dealing with, it is what it is”, he said.
Ailes and Trump both acknowledge speaking by phone this week in the wake of a feud over last week’s GOP presidential debate on Fox News, but Trump said Ailes “couldn’t have been nicer” on the call.
Donald Trump’s campaign office issued a statement about the Megyn Kelly “blood coming out of her wherever” comment after it caused quite an outrage.
Trump’s presence in the race is causing widespread panic throughout the Republican Party. And it also gives me hope that someone in the mainstream media is saying so out loud.
Trump posted a video posted on his Instagram account Thursday showing a masked ISIS executioner and a scene from the deadly September 2012 attack at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.
He added that running as an Independent is “not something [he wants] to do” at this point. He’s at 44% in the poll, and no other Republican candidate is even close.
Rivera later asked if Reagan if his father would be entertained by the current state of the GOP, and the son replied, “I don’t think he would be entertained”.
Trump also took a swipe at the American campaign finance system in general, suggesting too much money being donated to candidates leaves politicians in debt to donors.
