The latest round of PPP national polling (pdf below) reflects the absolute disconnect between punditry and reality. Despite a month long campaign to push Carly Fiorina to the top of Mount Trumpet she’s going backward. Ergo, we see why the latest Fox News efforts shift to their last best hope to assist Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio.
Accordingly from PPP: Rubio is really the only candidate who can claim any sort of momentum. He’s gone from 5th place at 7% to 3rd place at 13% over the last five weeks. And he has a 57/24 favorability rating that puts him only behind Carson when it comes to the most broadly liked of the Republican hopefuls. No one other than Rubio has seen more than a 2 point gain since our last poll. (link)
You can read the desperation inherent between the lines of the Beltway Narrative as Donald Trump and the vulgarian assembly continues to retain a significant lead. Only in 2016 electoral politics would the current theme be displayed:
Trump is going to lose his way to victory !
Check out this tweet from the PPP pollsters:
Yes Alice, Trump’s “weakest groups” are the groups he’s leading.
Think about that for a few moments.
Indeed, it would appear Donald Trump and the Vulgarian uprising are going to lose their way to victory….. WOLVERINES !
Nothing on the foreseeable horizon is going to change the current status of the race. Despite Fox News embedding with the Marco Rubio campaign for a three day exclusive courtesy of John Roberts, and despite broadcasting Team Rubio’s message on Murdoch’s network at every possible opportunity, the reality of Marco Rubio is going to lead to the same dead-end venue as previously traveled by Carly Fiorina.
Rubio just has too much baggage. He’s bought and paid for by Wall Street, the Chamber of Commerce and Donor Norman Braman. The latter even hired Rubio’s wife to work for his charitable foundation at a cost of $1,000/week and the foundation doesn’t do anything charitable. Well, unless you call paying the wife of your chosen candidate, “charity”. This will all come out soon enough. ~ FULL BACK STORY ~
