CNN New Hampshire Poll – Donald Trump Extends Lead 34%, Cruz 14%, Rubio 10%…

CNN/WMUR have conducted another poll of New Hampshire voters (full pdf below).  Candidate Donald Trump extends his lead and is now positioned (34%) solidly 20 points higher than second place Ted Cruz.  Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio are tied for third place with 10% each.

Notice how Kasich is no-where close to the continual ARG polls (20%)?

Candidate Donald Trump is also winning significantly on the key issues.

Washington (CNN) – Donald Trump holds a 20-point lead in the New Hampshire Republican primary, a new CNN/WMUR poll shows.

Behind him, there’s still a scrum for second place — with support for No. 2, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, on the rise.  Trump is backed by 34% of those likely to vote in New Hampshire’s February 9 GOP primary, more than double his nearest contender, Cruz, who has 14% support. (read more)

    So basically Trump’s up by 20 pts or more everywhere except Calgary – where it’s a mere 18 pts.

    They were just discussing this on CNN – Navarro talked about Bush “surging”, and Toobin’s jaw just dropped. It was classic…”Nothing in that poll shows Bush surging! Going from 5% to 10% is not a surge!”

    • Heard the same type of thing on the radio this afternoon. Kasich? Really? However, and this is interesting, Mr. Newt seemed to me to be very even-handed. His idea is: if the candidate is an R, vote for him/her! Period. OTOH, Shaun Hannity’s head was exploding. Or was that Mark Levin? Anyway, one of them was all bent out of shape b/d of ethanol. As a card-carrying Libertarian (but R for the duration!) I, too, oppose the ethanol situation. But that is minor.

        I missed portions of Hannity today, but I doubt it was him. I listened off and on throughout his three hours, and his whole focus was on giving Trump and Cruz (with lesser time given to the also-rans) as much air time as possible on his TV show and on his radio show tonight and tomorrow to “make their closing arguments.” A couple of days ago he openly admitted that he personally favors Trump or Cruz, and will be happy with either of them.

    For all of these latest polls… I would take whatever the MOE is, subtract that amount from each of the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place candidates, combine those amounts, and add to Trump’s reported total. Then, you might have something much closer to the truth.

      If you forgot the [/sarc] I get it. If not, I’m lost. The SEm’s on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place candidates don’t necessarily predict that a voter for those lower tiers would cross over to Trump (or someone else) if one or all of the lower tiers dropped out. If the “favorite” of a lower tiers drops out the voter might just stay home. They might all go for Trump. Who knows. The SEm only measures the variability of respondents answers to the question. The confidence interval only predicts that the population mean is somewhere within the confidence interval 95% of the time.

      So, what I’m saying is that your method biases the Trump mean without much justification.

      What could be done is take all of the poll means from summer to now, use that grand mean, and then attempt something with confidence intervals. That way the n of the sample increases, which will drive down the SEm. But, even that is confounded. Why do that when we know that attitudes and choices change every 500 msec or so, especially with the news flow and flood of propaganda. Polls are dime a dozen…That’s why Rasmussen got out of the poll business and does other stuff now regarding opinions.

            Hey Ark…Lighten up! I fully appreciate your vigorous defense of a more scientific approach to these polls. If that is what works best for you (or anybody else), great.

            However, it is my position that even the most carefully applied scientific analysis of these polls is unlikely to provide one with significantly more reliable information when the baseline data being analyzed is fundamentally flawed; and, I happen to believe that the data compiled into these agenda-driven polls is absolutely flawed (skewed to create/maintain a desired narrative).

            So, no voodoo magic here. Just some good ‘ol common sense and a healthy distrust of the pollsters. Anyone with an IQ over 50 and access to a news feed can see all of the current trends quite clearly. No poll results needed for that.

            You go ahead and put your faith in the method that works best for you, and I’ll do the same. No hard feelings – OK?

      There it is – thanks, NJF

      In order for Ted Cruz to have “become” a US citizen at birth in 1970, his mother would have had to retain exclusive citizenship to the US and filed a CRBA (Consular Report of Birth Abroad) to “obtain” exclusive US citizenship at the time for her son Ted and renounced his automatic “naturally acquired” Canadian citizenship. The process in itself is considered a very abbreviated form of “naturalization”, thereby making such persons born outside of the OFFICIAL territories of the United States absolutely ineligible to become President of these United States in at least this one circumstance alone. Given that Canadian law did not allow dual citizenship at the time, then IF his mother filed a CRBA in 1970, his Canadian citizenship would likely have needed to be renounced before a new US citizenship could be granted.

            For trump to make the “deal” you propose, he is in essense selling influence to the donor class – you even state they get “a seat at the table”. He therefore would be a puppet of the donor class, because their withholding from others, at his request, is the same as he himself accepting the money.

            Trump did not cut a deal with Aldeson. He has known and been close friends with Aldeson for over 40 years. Did you know that ?

      The objective of candidate Donald Trump is, as it was originally stated and continues to look, to have an empty desk clear of IOU’s in the oval office upon entry.

      Part of the hope behind his candidacy will be a call to reform campaign finance and eliminate this upper-hand of corruption the Citizens United decision gave to unlimited campaign contributions.

      Obviously, it could be fixed without congress but neither party is willing to do it.

      Lobbying and special interest legislation will always be a problem, but the more urgent aspect is to block donor-classes from controlling candidates outright. The people must be put back in charge of campaign contributions to make viable candidates.

      That oval office desk needs to be clean upon arrival if Trump is going to be able to lead the charge on this needed impact.

      Bob Dole on Cruz: “NOBODY LIKES HIM”

      “Bob Dole Warns of ‘Cataclysmic’ Losses With Ted Cruz, and Says Donald Trump Would Do Better”

      SNIPPETS:
      Bob Dole, the former Kansas senator and 1996 Republican presidential nominee, has never been fond of Senator Ted Cruz of Texas. But in an interview Wednesday, Mr. Dole said that the party would suffer “cataclysmic” and “wholesale losses” if Mr. Cruz was the nominee, and that Donald J. Trump would fare better.

      “I question his allegiance to the party,” Mr. Dole said of Mr. Cruz. “I don’t know how often you’ve heard him say the word ‘Republican’ — not very often.” Instead, Mr. Cruz uses the word “conservative,” Mr. Dole said, before offering up a different word for Mr. Cruz: “extremist.”

      “I don’t know how he’s going to deal with Congress,” he said. “Nobody likes him.”

      But Mr. Dole said he thought Mr. Trump could “probably work with Congress, because he’s, you know, he’s got the right personality and he’s kind of a deal-maker.”

      The remarks by Mr. Dole reflect wider unease with Mr. Cruz among members of the Republican establishment, but few leading members of the party have been as candid and cutting.

      “If he’s the nominee, we’re going to have wholesale losses in Congress and state offices and governors and legislatures,” said Mr. Dole, who served in the House and Senate for 35 years and won the Iowa caucuses twice. He described Mr. Cruz as having falsely “convinced the Iowa voters that he’s kind of a mainstream conservative.”

      The only person who could stop Mr. Cruz from capturing the nomination? “I think it’s Trump,” Mr. Dole said, adding that Mr. Trump was “gaining a little.”

      He said he had met Mr. Trump only once, 30 years ago. “But he has toned down his rhetoric,” he added. As for Mr. Cruz, he said: “There’ll be wholesale losses if he’s the nominee. Our party is not that far right.”

      Mr. Dole repeatedly said he was strongly supporting Jeb Bush, the former governor of Florida, although he acknowledged that Mr. Bush has had trouble gaining traction.
      “I question his allegiance to the party,” Mr. Dole said of Mr. Cruz. “I don’t know how often you’ve heard him say the word ‘Republican’ — not very often.” Instead, Mr. Cruz uses the word “conservative,” Mr. Dole said, before offering up a different word for Mr. Cruz: “extremist.”

    • LOL… I think it is over anyway. No candidate in history has ever polled like this at this point in the cycle. It is just over. Also, don’t forget, most of these polls are fudged so he may even be higher when the data is looked at behind closed doors.

      Also, if Bush had these poll numbers the RNC would be calling it over, canceling the rest of the debates, and sending Jebbie out to fundraise for the general!

      But, do not get complacent! We need to follow through with votes. Like a golf swing, without good follow through we may hook it onto the next fairway and lose.

      I think the VP will come from the Tea Party, so Rand is a possibility. I think Trump will choose Rand for VP if he is against Sanders, and Katrina if it’s Hilldog.

        Rand is closest to Trump on many things and might pull the libertarian wing.
        Romney’s mistake was to trash the Ron Paul supporters and alienate them so badly they stayed home instead of working for Ron as VP.

          It’s an interesting thought, but I don’t think it can happen. Rand Paul loathes Trump, and even insults Trump supporters as “stupid” and “easily led”. And didn’t he say recently that he’s sort of given up on winning, and is only really still in it to try to stop Trump?

          Under those circumstances, I don’t think Trump would offer, and I don’t think Paul would accept.

        Sorry, but there is no Tea Party anymore and when there was one Dandy Randy had nothing to do with it except take their votes and sell out once he got to Washington. Not only no to Rand as Veep, but HELL NO! Personally, I hope Trump chooses someone not currently serving in Congress.

          It would have to be someone registered, and loyal to the Republican party due to the nomination rules. It may come down to a choice between Kasich, and Rand as the GOP has to approve of his pick. Think Rand would be the best pick to go against Bernie, Hillary is another matter, he would be best to choose a female.

    Ted Cruz is not a NBC. Why can’t people understand that? I saw on BB that some kid gave him the Naturalization Law paper and Ted signed it and underlined the part about one parent being a citizen. So he’s naturalized and being disingenuous about it which is so wrong on so many levels. Yet people still want to vote for him. I saw this article which states O, Cruz and Rubio are not NBC. http://freedomoutpost.com/2016/01/natural-born-citizen-status-is-inherited-its-not-bestowed-by-the-constitution-or-acts-of-congress/ We haven’t even gotten to Rubio not being a NBC.

    • I keep pointing out to people citing that law that by doing so, they are actually offering proof that Cruz is a naturalized citizen.

I wish people could see that this is part of the subversion behind the North American Union – it’s the globalists behind the curtain that need to be brought up short, regardless of whether we have Obama, Cruz, Rubio or the next sucker on stage.

      You noticed, others are noticing, and there is a Trump versus Bill Clinton the woman abuser class kill shot lined up in the queue for the Palin attackers.

      Palin is more than just a tool to cover his back.

      She is a staked goat for Liberal/GOPe stalkers to very publicly express their sexist issues and get cobbered about it by Trump like Hilary was for her history as an enabler for Bill.

      And consider, Sarah volunteered for this mission.

          …but McCain’s people never defended her and degraded her afterwards to save their own reputations with the Uniparty elites.

          That Sarah was loyal to McCain for long afterwards says a great deal about her gratitude for her selection as VP.

          That she joined Trump says a great deal about her intelligence and wanting to effectively strike back at those who hurt her and her family.

I could be wrong, but kind of think Rush might be repenting, but wow, Levin sounds like Medved, but Levin for Cruz and Medved for Rubio or Jebbie, or Kasich or, anybody but Trump or Cruz. The only one I can listen to is Savage, and he sounds like he’s jealous that Palin is getting recognition for endorsing Trump, because he endorsed Trump from the early days.

      Medved, surprisingly, has come out and stated on his show that he will support Trump if Trump is the Republican nominee, which is more than the Republican party leadership or any of the “party-approved” candidates have done.

      Medved definitely isn’t fond of Trump, but he’s at least declared that he’ll “hold his nose” in the voting booth like we’ve had to do so many times. I do have to give the guy some props for that, after seeing so many establishment-oriented pundits vote for Obama (twice!) even when they actually got the GOP nominees they wanted.

      And I look forward to helping make Medved hold his nose and vote for Trump.
