Three articles published Thursday by CNN, Politico, and The Washington Post used recent polls from Quinnipiac and CNN/ORC to argue that the surge that propelled Trump to the head of the GOP pack may be ending. Biden is in second place, with 15.9 percent, while Sanders is close behind with 15.2 percent.
None of the other Republican contenders for the presidency were tested in the poll. Mr Trump said the network hasn’t treated him “fairly” and that he would stop appearing on Fox for the time being.
Trump had about the same amount of support in a July poll of New Hampshire, according to CNN. Ben Carson, who owns a home in Florida, was the only other candidate to reach double digits, coming in fourth with 10.3%. Carson’s s net favorability is +42 percent, Rubio’s is +36 percent and Kasich’s +21 percent.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gets 43 percent of the votes of Democrats, with 25 percent for U.S. Sen. Although Bush’s “super PAC” has amassed more than $100 million since the former governor began testing the presidential waters, Rubio’s increasing viability as a general-election candidate could persuade some supporters to switch their allegiance, Wagner said.
That lack of strength among regular primary voters is one of several negative indicators for Bush in the poll. Interviews were usually performed on the phone among 820 New Hampshire tenants, along with 344 who exactly said they actually desired to choose in the Republican presidential principal.
Trump, the Republican front-runner, spoke in South Carolina at a meeting of the Greater Charleston Business Alliance, which supports minority businesses and is affiliated with the South Carolina African American Chamber of Commerce.
But that isn’t the case for Clinton’s closest Democratic competitors, who may have better chances than the national polls indicate. Just half of Floridians find Trump favorable, while 40.3 percent gave him an unfavorable rating, the highest of any candidate.
Trump has come in for a lot of criticism, mainly for his stand on immigration, but stories about his rapid rise in the polls dominated coverage during much of the summer.
On Thursday morning, Politico’s Kyle Cheney published a piece that pointed to the CNN/ORC poll, predictions from rival campaigns, and the widespread impression that Trump “faded a bit” during the debate.
