2016 is Make or Break
America will simply cease to exist if we do
not get control of our borders.
(Rasmussen) - The outsiders are still leading the pack in Rasmussen Reports’ latest look at the Republican presidential primary race following Tuesday night’s debate.
Twenty percent (20%) say they would vote for Dr. Ben Carson if the GOP presidential primary were held in their state today.
Senator Marco Rubio of Florida picks up 16% of the vote, while 13% prefer Senator Ted Cruz of Texas.
Eight percent (8%) say they would vote for former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, while support for ex-Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina has fallen back to four percent (4%). Seven percent (7%) say they would choose one of the other candidates in the race. Five percent (5%) are undecided.
Trump took the lead after the first debate in early August with 17% of the GOP vote, followed by Bush and Rubio each at 10%. Then it was Fiorina and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker with nine percent (9%) support each, followed by Cruz at seven percent (7%). Walker has since dropped out of the race.
Carson gained ground in surveys following the second and third debates. The latest survey shows Rubio and Cruz as the beneficiaries of strong performances at this week’s debate.
Most Republican voters still see Trump as their party’s likely presidential nominee in our weekly Trump Change survey. Those numbers will be updated again at 10:30 a.m. Eastern today.
