New Poll: Donald Trump Leads Nationally and Easily Beats Cruz, Rubio and Carson in Head-To-Head Matchups…

Donald Trump 60% -vs- Ben Carson 40%
Donald Trump 57% -vs- Marco Rubio 43%
Donald Trump 57% -vs- Ted Cruz 43%

A new YouGov/Economist Poll (full pdf below) of 2000 national respondents shows Donald Trump with a commanding lead, and beating all GOP rivals in head-to-head matchups.

For the first time Pollsters asked the respondents head-to-head comparisons between Trump, Carson, Cruz and Rubio.   The results eliminate yet another promoted myth:

Head-To-Head […]  The New York billionaire would defeat Rubio and Cruz by the same margin of 57 percent to 43 percent, and would defeat Carson by a margin of 60 to 40 percent, according to the poll. 

The finding is a blow to the hopes of some Republican elites who argue that Trump’s stubborn lead in the race will dissipate once the field winnows and a more mainstream alternative rises (read more).

    This makes Trump the Condorcet winner, meaning he beats all other candidates in head-to-head matchups. This is a strong statement in a field of 14.
    Trump is right where he needs to be among 14 candidates. His growing strength in the past week is characteristic of a competitor in a field of only 7-8 candidates. Very impressive. When Gilmore, Pataki, Graham, Santorum, Huckabee, Christie, Paul, Kasich, and Fiorina drop out, we will see even more of a Trump lead.
    I’m stumping for Trump – Trump/West 2016!
