Anticipate all national polls showing the same result. However, due to Media and GOP aversion to Trump, anticipate paid political polling silence (if possible) until the last minute for debate #1 lineup. PPP’s newest (independent) North Carolina poll finds that Donald Trump’s momentum just keeps on building. He’s the top choice of Republican primary voters in the state:
♦ Donald Trump 16%
♦ Jeb Bush 12% (CoC Supported √ )
♦ Scott Walker 12% (CoC Unknown yet possible)
♦ Mike Huckabee 11% ( Foster Friess √ )
♦ Ben Carson 9% (Sheldon Adelson √ )
♦ Marco Rubio 9% (CoC Supported √ )
♦ Rand Paul 7%
♦ Ted Cruz 6% (CoC Unknown yet probable)
♦ Chris Christie 5% (CoC Supported √ )
♦ Carly Fiorina 4% (CoC Unknown yet probable)
♦ Rick Perry 2% (CoC Supported √ )
1% each for Lindsey Graham, Bobby Jindal, and Rick Santorum, and less than 1% each for John Kasich and George Pataki.
Candidate Trump is also leading the field amid young NC voters (by a mile), and men.
It is important to determine, research and note the CoC (U.S. Chamber of Commerce) support because it’s the only TRUE method to keep track of the Jeb Bush strategy.
To understand the larger Establishment GOP -professional political class- election strategy the methodology is simple. Take the percentage of predictive polling (per state) favorable to Jeb Bush, then insure a sufficient number of candidates, each targeted to a specific constituency) below Jeb’s threshold – to create the largest possible share of the total voting electorate for Jeb.
It is a specific Five State Plan (Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Florida, Nevada) with emphasis on Florida’s biggest delegate count.
Example: If Jeb were polling 20%, the CoC would coordinate campaign funding for as many candidates needed to reduce the next closest candidate below the 20% margin.
If Walker was polling 35% (candidate example) with Bush at 30%, the CoC would fund Rubio and Christie to fracture the Walker 35%. The CoC will fund as many candidates as needed to keep the Bush margin at/near the top until FL.
The CoC (through the establishment GOP structure) quietly constructed the Florida Primary to a “Winner Takes All Delegate” position two months ago (no-one was paying attention).
This is part of the CoC/Wall Street/GOP “5 state strategy” to insure Jeb Bush wins the nomination.
After the Florida primary, if the GOP plan is successful – and with Bush winning Florida, Rubio will endorse Jeb Bush….. then it’s coasting to the nomination.
Rubio’s loyalty reward is $$$ because he’s given up his Senate Seat to work for the Wall Street (CoC) team.
This was/is the strategy between the CoC, the GOP, and the hierarchy of the Republican political machine. We cannot make it any more clear than this.
