Donald Trump Dominates In Connecticut – Trump 34%, Carson 14%…

If the primary election were held today, Donald Trump would take all 25 of the 28 available delegates.  No other candidate exceeds the minimum primary threshold of 20% within this winner-take-most (closed primary) state.

CONNECTICUT – […] Trump is far ahead of establishment candidates such as Jeb Bush, according to a Quinnipiac University poll of Connecticut voters released Tuesday morning. Two other GOP candidates who have never held elective office — Dr. Ben Carson, a pediatric neurosurgeon, and Carly Fiorina, the former CEO of Hewlett-Packard — also drew double digit support.

“Republicans are looking for an outsider,’’ Quinnipiac poll Director Doug Schwartz said. Trump captured 34 percent of the Republican vote, while Carson drew 14 percent and Fiorina received 11 percent. (read more)

    Speaking as a hard Core Tea Party person from 2008 I can tell you that WE DO NOT TRUST the GOPe and I don’t think there is enough money in the country to change that. In Cleveland we worked really hard to get conservative republicans elected to congress in ’10 ’12 n1d ’14 and as soon as they got to congress they turned in to RINO’s so we said three times was it no more we want an outsider like Trump and I actually think he would make a GREAT president.

    IMO, Trumps support probably is pushing 40+ percent. If these polls were accurately reflecting sentiment on the ground ( instead of pushing a narrative) this Primary would be verified as already over.

      I tend to agree, but there are a lot of people who keep toying around with different candidates – as if they could miraculously win. People need to get it through their skulls that the rest of them would throw their delegates to Jeb in a brokered convention.

    Jindal is crying now, He wants to be included on the main stage for the CNBC debate in a couple of weeks. His reasoning… polling better in Iowa, and New Hampshire. If history tells us anything, he might actually make it, Rove inc. definitely wants him on the same debate stage as Trump.

    Connecticut is within the NYC media market. They know Trump better than those of us who’d never heard of the ice rink.

      I used to live in CT and work in NYC. Never heard about the rink until the other day.
      The local CT TV stations – especially in New Haven – tend to report on all the wonderful things government does for the people. Since Trump showed how private enterprise can out perform government, you’d never see or hear about it in the media.

      What does the ice rink have to do with anything? Trump rebuilt it way back in 1986.
      Trump should win the closed primary hands down. That said keep an eye out for MS style tricks should those 25 delegates be needed by the GOPe.
      The RNC has all but abandoned the Nutmeg State.
      That is a conversation for another day how many states have been ceded to the DNC by the RNC.

    “If the primary election were held today, Donald Trump would take all 25 of the 28 available delegates…”

    I thought this was an interesting statement. Would it be possible to model the total convention delegate count using the same approach (“if the primary election were held today”)?

    You could apply each state’s delegate assignment rules to the current polls in each state to come up with a delegate count for each state, as you did for CT. (For those states without meaningful polls, use the national polling.). Then add them up to come up with a total convention delegate count for 1) Trump and 2) “everybody else” assuming all the other delegates end up voting at the convention for whomever the GOPe tells them to.

      YES not only can it be done It is being done and updated with the release of every poll
      as well as internal polls that candidates or groups on their behalf do.
      That is why you are seeing the GOPe swarm to prop up Carly, Carson or Rubio
      they are testing the splitters and any delegates they might be able to peel off from Trump and in theory hand over to “the guy who gets girls to fight for him” at the convention.
      FYI not only do they model by State but by County and Precinct level as well.
      As Primaries get closer you will hear of a candidate going to some odd place
      and you will know why: they feel they can pick up votes there ( read delegates ).
      Hope this helped, enjoy this day.

    That’s great. I live in CT and changed my registration to R so I could vote in the primary for Trump. People think everyone in CT is wealthy but if you leave the golden corridor in lower Fairfield County you’ll find plenty of fed up, hurting people.

      Dee – You’re right about the people in the “other CT counties”. They are steaming mad. I stay in touch with plenty of friends, and I travel there from time to time. But, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Trump getting stronger even in Fairfield county the further away from Greenwich one goes. Besides suffering under Obama, they’re suffering under that moron governor Malloy. And they’re close enough to the sanctuary city of New Haven (don’t know if Bridgeport is a sanctuary, but it probably is) to be very concerned about further declines in their living standards. I hope many of the people in the Naugatuck valley switch to R and vote. There are so many terrific, hard-working people there.

        Hey Boss – Bridgeport, as far as I know, is not a sanctuary city. New Haven, Hartford and Danbury are the ones I’m aware of. (I’m very concerned about New Haven, I’m too close for comfort)

        Malloy is an idiot and even D’s are getting fed up with him finally. I’m also stuck with DeLauro as a Rep and Murphy and Blumenthal as Senators.

        The Naugatuck Valley is still a blue collar area. Many, many fine hard working people.
        I’ve been talking up Trump and found a lot of support. People are mad. But CT usually goes the way of the est candidate on the R side. That’s why I was very pleasantly surprised to see this poll.

          CT is hopelessly a blue state as is the rest of New England. Has been for many years and will continue to be so. Any state that would elect that nut DeLauro as a Representative is hopeless. It’s a shame because as you move farther east in the state, you have a lot of working poor people. Basically, if you don’t work for the government (local or state) is some form or another, you’re hosed. Not exactly the most business friendly state in the union.

          Can’t quite figure out why Greenwich has DeLauro. Trust-fund babies & the noveau riche feeling guilty about having all that money? Or is the change in demographics(umhum!) in Greenwich & environs’ other side of the tracks the best kept secret?

    Just to let you know, CT is the state that gave Congress irrelevant Senator Blumenthal & braindead Sen Murphy. I would take the poll results with a grain of salt.

      Look at internals of the poll, it really is 2 polls combined into 1 as it is a closed primary state. > 500 registered GOP polled that said I think it is reflective as it relates to Primary.
      While the GOPe has long written off CT in general election, I can see Trump fighting for CT due to his much wider voter base, don’t see Trump ceding any state he is a fighter!
