GOP 2016 presidential polls: Surprise candidate no longer surprises

Real Clear Politics provides a solid, one-stop-shop aggregation of the major presidential polls. The focus HERE is on the Republican candidates seeking the 2016 nomination.

Scroll down to see the interactive graph followed by polling data going back to earlier this year. Nothing has remained static since Donald Trump has taken the country by storm. In poll after poll, Trump has dominated, blowing other candidates previously considered first tier out of the water.

When throwing the imploding Hillary Clinton into the mix in a head-to-head match up, Trump still leads. This new SurveyUSA poll shows that when matched up directly, Trump garners 45 percent to Clinton’s 40 percent. This is a dramatic turnaround from earlier polling,

Do you have a favorite at this point? Who and why?

    At this point, I’m with Trump. He’s dominating because of the weak positions of his opponents on the issues that matter most to me, my family and the USA.

    On the Dem side, Hillary is far from the invincible ‘sure thing” she was portrayed to be. Her trust level is in the toilet since the email scandal broke. It should have been in the toilet from the onset of her entry onto the political stage decades ago with everything going back to the Clinton’s Arkansas days. The Benghazi debacle, resulting in the senseless deaths of our US Ambassador and others at the US embassy in Libya (and the relentless lies she contrived as SOS and put out for public consumption) was given short shrift by the liberal and fawning media,. They can’t cover for her any longer and see her as damaged goods. They’ll kick in with Obama’s third term insurance Joe Biden.

    WND has a list of Hillary’s 22 biggest scandals.

    I see the overriding domestic issue as the invasion of the United States by lawless mobs who want to remake our country into the image of the one they left because of poverty and crime. They are costing American taxpayers billions of dollars a year as we provide endless benefits, including schooling and health care. Their massive impact on the criminal justice system is undeniable. We suffer from their criminal acts and then have to provide them with public defenders to put them back on our streets. If they’re convicted, we pay to keep them incarcerated. When they’re deported, they repeatedly return and create more mayhem and often as in the case of the young San Francisco woman, Kate Steinle, murder innocent Americans.

    Trump says he’ll deport the criminal aliens and build a wall, but then turns around and says he’ll “put a door in it and expedite bringing the good ones back.” What the hell does that mean?? I want to hear more from Dr. Carson.

    After the election of November 2014 when we wanted Harry Reid gone and put the GOPe in charge of the Senate and got stabbed in the back, I don’t want to see any of the D.C. crowd winning. I like Trump for the upheaval he’s causing the establishment on both sides of the aisle. Also like Scott Walker, who has to make his immigration stance more clear – and Ted Cruz, but he’s another H1-B supporter. I’m as conservative as one can get, but when it comes to Donald Trump and illegal immigration – I think somebody who can attract Democrats, Independents and Republicans of all strains – might be what we need after what Obama has done to this country. We need a change – not the same old dirty D.C. games.

    Ben Carson is weak on the Second Amendment and Carly Fiorina is too close with Mitt Romney and John McCain and is a liberal Republican who says on the stump “I am a Conservative.” I’ve heard that one before. Any of these candidates are better than any Democrat however. But – that’s “settling” again.

    Those I loathe are Jeb Bush, John Kasich and Lindsey Graham.

    I will support whichever candidate not only gives lip service to shutting down the illegal invasion, but tells us specifically how and gives a timeline for implementation. I’ve had enough double talk from double crossers.

    Building a wall can be beat by digging a deep and wide canal and filling it with piranhas. There will be no way to dig under it or put a ladder over it. Back hoes, piranhas and piped-in water are all that’s needed. No need for workmen, bricks and mortar or spending billions. According to this 2007 estimate the number was $49 Billion. That was nearly a decade ago. How much in today’s dollars???

    Gov. Scott Walker blew a hole through the unions that were bankrupting Wisconsin. They tried to disrupt the state and even recalled him. He survived and came back even stronger and more determined. He’s shown me he can tend to business. He’s not a show horse, but diligently gets the job down. He’s not a tired RINO retread or an amnesty supporter like Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio. Which is another plus. Best of all Walker’s been meeting with Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions who is the most vocal senator against the invasion and for protecting American jobs for American citizens. I think Walker will rise like cream when the Trump hoopla dies down.

  6. LEO IN TSN says:

    Senator Ted Cruz is the man. He has the experience and the knowledge to get the job done. He has not had to “evolve” on anything, unlike all of the other candidates. He not only talks the talk, he has walked the walk. He is the only one who has fought the fight. He has stood firm for America on the floor of the Senate numerous times, taking the bullets & arrows of the Leftists in both parties without a backstep or a flinch. He has repeatedly called out a cowardly federal government, House-Senate-White Mosque and Supreme Circus, with bulls-eye critiques of their betrayals of the Constitution.

    He is not cowed by a hateful “moderate” party nor by a destructive media. He says exactly what he thinks is good for America, and his values are constant. His history is exemplary for US, from his work to defend and support the citizens of Texas, to his courageous wars in the Senate against McEstablishment “leadership.” He is an American patriot, supported by other strong conservatives. He is the man who can bring the Congress back to life.

    Look far past campaign rhetoric. Campaign ads and appearances are just a televised opportunity for “moderate” candidates to lie about their beliefs and values, and hope nobody looks at their records. Only one man fits the bill-Ted Cruz.

    God bless America.

      Terrorism tops my list of concerns. We seem to have forgotten that ALL of the 9/11/2001 terrorists were Muslims. I’m sick and tired of hearing about the “Religion of Peace.” We have no idea who’s coming across our border illegally. The Border Patrol has a designation known as OTM (Other Than Mexican) that also includes Middle Easterners, not using the ruse of “looking for a better life,” but to destroy ours.

      This report is almost 6 years old: It’s undoubtedly worse today.

      Now the news is filled with reports of the Muslim invasion of Europe, obscuring the national cultures with their own and bringing Shirah law with them as they claim “refugee” status. The actual aim, which they admit, is complete takeover.

      Americans are tracked daily in ways we can’t even fathom. Every conceivable item we purchase has embedded tags or codes. The amount of money we have with us when traveling is noted by detection devices that scan the implanted security threads now in our currency. Whether we pump gas, stroll through the mall, drive on the freeways or enter a grocery store, our every move is tracked by cameras. Yet somehow it’s impossible for the feds to keep tabs on the illegals who are taking over the United States? Give me a break!! It’s clear they don’t want to or they would.

    Ted Cruz is a statesman, but seems to get little media coverage.
    Each and every time he is confronted by the Gottcha crowd, whether it be at a State Fair or at a scheduled speech, he is able to calmly and eloquently educate the liberal plants.

    I read the transcript posted from last weekend, when Cruz was ambushed twice in the same day by two “recent college graduates” who wanted to lecture Cruz on climate change.

    He was able to get control of the conversation and make it a teachable moment—not so much for the two who ambushed him—but for those standing nearby and for those of us who read the transcript.

    The very fact that Cruz is still considered an outsider in Congress is enough reason to like him.

    I do like Donald Trump because he has been able to do something that no one else can—–pay his own way; befuddle the media, and pizz off the inside-the-Beltway elitists who have sold US out.

    Let’s just hope and pray that there will be an election in 2016.

    Dr. Ben Carson intrigues me. He has a compelling story and his calm manner are refreshing. He is definitely conservative and pro-life. I saw him when he visited Phoenix and there were thousands that turned out to hear him. I doubt many of them were on the fence when he finished his presentation.. If Dr. Carson is on the ticket, it puts an end to the lie that Republicans are racist because we can’t stand the radical leftwing policies and overstepping of Barack Obama. Obama has routinely conducted himself as a tyrant as he bypasses congress and imposes unconstitutional executive orders. His race is not the issue. His megalomaniacal overreaches are.

    • Conservative Since Birth says:

      Ben Carson was a democrat until Reagan was elected then became a republican. He got mad at the Republican party over their treatment of Bill Clinton – called the republicans hypocrites, then became an independent for years. He voted for Obama in 2008. He decided to run for president as a republican.

      He told the truth about about prison turning some into homosexuals, was chastized by the liberal media and apologized, taking the comment back. No backbone.

      He was for open borders.

      He has been for gun control.

      Some say that Ben Carson is not presidential material. He’s done nothing whatsoever to be second in the polls, other than proving that keeping your mouth shut is the way to run a campaign. He’s been good at that. He can be called the Invisible Man.

      His quiet, reserved demeanor is attractive and that’s what many see as so favorable and he’s a good, God-fearing man. I wonder, however, if he is forceful and tough enough for the job.

  9. Doc says:

    Trump has engaged the white gorilla (illegal immigration) in the room. However, Ted Cruz is th’ MAN in my not very humble opinion. Carson’s weak on the 2nd Amendment. Therefore, he’s not even on my screen.
