NH poll: Trump at 40%, Bush and Walker sinking

Goodbye to the Elites
To Hell with the Elites. At this point I am Trump all the way.

CBS News poll

And the Monmouth Poll

(Washington Examiner)  -  A new poll of GOP primary voters in New Hampshire shows politically inexperienced presidential candidates at the top of the class, with Ben Carson improving his position most.

Trump maintained the top spot in Monmouth University's poll with the support of 28 percent of Republican voters. Carson moved into second with 17 percent, and gained 12 percentage points since Monmouth's last survey of the Granite State near the end of July.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich held onto third place with the support of 11 percent of those surveyed, with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz at 8 percent and Carly Fiorina and Jeb Bush each tied at 7 percent.

"Once again, the three candidates who have never held political office combine for a majority of support in a GOP primary poll," said Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute, in a statement. "This race has turned into the 'Festivus' campaign. It appears that GOP voters are using the 2016 nomination contest to air their grievances with party leadership."

Following Carson's double-digit jump in the polls, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz gained five percentage points since Monmouth's July poll of New Hampshire, while Trump, Fiorina and Kasich each gained four points. Likewise, Bush and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker dropped five points in the poll. Walker earned the support of 2 percent of those surveyed.

Reasons for the change appear to focus largely on the voters anger with the Republican Party in Washington, D.C., and around the country. Approximately 68 percent of GOP primary voters prefer the next president come from "outside government," while two-thirds are somewhat or very "dissatisfied" with Republican leadership in Congress. A majority think the GOP is doing a "bad job" of representing the concerns of voters like them.

New Hampshire, the Tree State
It is an act of national insanity for a micro-state with more trees than voters to have this kind of power in national elections.  Why the legislatures of the other states allow themselves to be screwed over is beyond me.
