There you go, ladies and gentlemen. The NH Primary looks ripe for the GOP frontrunner to win and move on to South Carolina. It’s not in the bag, and it’s not over until the end of the race. However, it’s starting to look pretty good.
The latest CNN/ORC poll has the businessman ahead of his rivals BEFORE the GOP debate last night so the real numbers could affect Marco Rubio after Chris Christie laid into him really bad.
From the Hill:
Thirty-three percent of likely Republican primary voters said they support Trump, giving the billionaire a 17-point lead over his closest GOP rival. Trump gained 5 points from a similar tracking poll last week.
Trump now has more than double the support of Sen. Marco Rubio, who came in second with 16 percent support.
Sen. Ted Cruz has 14 percent for third place.
Gov. John Kasich follows with 11 percent, while no other GOP candidate broke single-digit support.
The poll, according to CNN, was completed as Saturday’s debate in New Hampshire started.
