Iowa Poll – Donald Trump Back To A Commanding Lead 37% – Dominates Key Voter Issues…

The latest Iowa polling from CNN/ORC (full pdf below) shows resoundingly good news for candidate Donald Trump.  With 37% polling support Trump is now eleven points higher than second place Ted Cruz (26%).

Marco Rubio comes in a distant third at 14%, and the collective Rubio/Bush ticket is a mere 17%.

In addition to dominating the top line results, Donald Trump also holds a commanding lead amid the issues that matter most to the Iowa voter, the economy and immigration.

Here’s the CNN/ORC Iowa trend line:

[ Via CNN ]  […] Sarah Palin’s endorsement of Trump came while the survey was in the field, but the sample size is not large enough to assess whether it made any difference in the race.

CNN/ORC surveyed 2,002 Iowa adults by telephone Jan. 15 to Jan. 20, including 266 likely Republican presidential caucus-goers and 280 likely Democratic presidential caucus-goers. Both party samples have a margin of error of plus or minus six percentage points. (read more)

These Iowa poll results are also bolstered by another Iowa Poll conducted by Emerson University:

    So much for the “Donald is desperate because I’m whipping him in the polls” line of attack. Cruz was on Hannity last night. Trump gets to rebut tonight. These polls couldn’t have come out at a better time!

    Hell yes! Go Trump!

    A friend of mine was listening to Levin (I know, I know) and told me that Levin is engaged to a woman whose son works in Senator Cruz’s office. Do any of you know anything about this? I know nothing about Levin except that I’m not a fan of his.

    Let’s say the results of this poll holds on caucus day. What would the delegate breakdown be? Anyone know?

    Iowa is important for Trump because missing it would be like being the favorite in a race, being all primed and ready, and then when the gun goes off, he trips on a shoelace. It could effect momentum. We don’t want that. If Trump can “run the table”, he goes into the convention with such a position that the RNC wouldn’t dare try any shenanigans.

    Any cause for concern by anyone for Trump +4 and Cruz +6? Saw that as “good news” on an Iowa pro-Cruz site. That plus this, “The first two Iowa polls after Sarah Palin’s endorsement of Trump (seen above) and Iowa governor Terry Branstad’s announced opposition to Cruz, and showed conflicting results. Loras College gives Trump a 1-point lead over Cruz, 26 to 25 percent, with Rubio taking 13 and Ben Carson 8. KBUR shows Cruz with a 2-point lead, 27 percent to 25, with Carson taking 11 and Rubio 9.” I’m from Iowa and we are 11 days out, hoping the one-two punch of Palin and the IA Gov slap will move Trump up.

      I think Trump was +3, Cruz -5 in the recent Loras poll.

      Those polls were not conducted after the endorsement or the Brandstad opposition to Cruz, they were conducted before, at least that is what I understood.

      The polls are great news, the trend is TRUMP UP, CRUZ DOWN, how can that be of any concern?

      Then we get the CNN and then the additional Emerson Poll for Iowa, and that shows Trump Up 10 points etc.

      Which is all terrific news.

      Found this. The Outdoor Sportsmen Awards at 8:00 pm (11:00 eastern). That is not necessarily the time that Trump will be speaking though. If you get a channel called the Outdoor Channel, you can see it. Haven’t found any other info where else to watch.


      • Buck Weaver says:

        Correction. Another link says it starts at 7:00. Confusing. No wonder Dan Scavino didn’t have details. Also, it just says Trump is making an appearance.

        Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump will make a special guest appearance at the Outdoor Sportsman Group Networks’ Outdoor Sportsman Awards on Thursday, January 21 at 7 p.m. PT at The Venetian Theatre in the Venetian Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The “16th Annual Outdoor Sportsman Awards” show takes place during the Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT Show) and Conference on January 19-22.

      Oh for goodness sake, this is beyond desperation.

      Trumps platform is build a wall, deport illegal immigrants, toughen existing immigration laws and a temporary ban on Mus.

      and Teddy wants us to believe Trump supports Amnesty ?

      Good grief.

      Trump said from day one that the good ones can come back … Legally. I’m sure others will disagree, but if he allows for somewhat expedited return after “touchback”, I won’t get my undies all in a bunch – if the Wall is complete or nearing completion first. It’s been 30 years since Simpson-Mazzoli. I’m less concerned about the current illegals (the “good ones”) than the next 50 million who will arrive if we don’t build Trump’s Wall.

      Maybe Trump is the reincarnation of Charles Martel?

      Charles Martel was a brilliant strategic general and also a great tactical commander, who in the middle of battle was able to adapt his plans to his enemy’s forces and movement and to defeat them repeatedly, even when, as at Tours, they were far superior in numbers of men and in weaponry. Charles Martel also had another quality, also totally missing in the sorry lot of today’s American generals, including the Benghazi liar Petraeus, he could foresee the dangers of his foes, and prepared for them with great cunning using terrain, time and place to offset the enemy’s superior weaponry and larger numbers and adapted, over and over again, to the enemy on the battlefield, gracefully adjusting to compensate for the unforeseen and seemingly unforeseeable.

        Feralcatsblog, if you have not done so, I think you might enjoy reading the Benghazi Papers that were written by Sundance and readily available in the archives.

        The wheels were already in motion for Benghazi and Leon Panetta and Hillary Clinton required a scapegoat. That scapegoat was General Petraeus. I think you are unfairly judging Petraeus, and because I see that you respect Generals and strategy, I hope that you will look closely at the timeline and recognize that perhaps, Petraeus doesn’t deserve such scorn.

      Meanwhile, Cruz has recently been trying to paint Trump as a politician and part of the establishment career politicians, paid pundits, and the huge campaign-making, politician-lobbing industry. WRONG DECEITFUL PROJECTION by Cruz Campaign.

      Trump is a career businessman who’s finally retired from his business empire to altruistically run for President of the United States—using his own money and his own employees to develop and implement his campaign. He’s groomed and prepared his hardworking honorable children to run the Trump empire while he runs for the most important office in the land and finally becomes our President. He is really enjoying his retirement from his business because this political campaign is NEW. He will also really enjoy being President too because, at heart, he’s a problem solver and decision maker— all great leaders are!

      Cruz is the one who desperately hopes to make politics his career and he and all the rest have to make that career with other entities’ money, not money from their own endeavors, but money made from peddling influence. Cruz can paint himself as an outsider all he wants, but as we say here in the South, “That dog don’t hunt.”

    It all depends on whether all the people who say they support Trump actually go out and vote. I suspect many think that just saying they support Trump will get him elected.

    My prediction.. Trump runs the table. Once it becomes clear to the Democrats that Trump will be the nominee, they will indict Hillary (because the dirty little secret is Trump would crush her) and run Biden instead.

    If Trump and keep up the pace he is on and win Iowa New Hampshire and South Carolina that just might be enough to take him to the top even with all the rest of the crowd trying to bring him down.


  27. andymilken says:

    The interesting thing is there is a poll from KBUR/Monmouth has the “anointed” one at 27 and Trumpy at 25. One peculiar thing is this poll, whether done separately by the university or collaborated w/ someone else, it never polled Trumpy as a leader at some point. They got one tied w/ the good doctor and the rest had the good doctor or the anointed one as the leader. Very strange when other polls always had some fluctuations between candidates. They did a total of 5 since Trumpy’s announcement. Their sample size was 687 conducted between 18-19.


  28. Solo Tester says:

    It is amazing to see how pundits and Trump trashers are STILL wrapping themselves in pretzels trying to over analyze Mr. Trump’s popularity and invulnerability.

    This is the ULTIMATE and ABSOLUTE explanation: Trump supporters have learned to love the Donald UNCONDITIONALLY.

    How and what does this mean?

    Simply, Mr. Trump has built up such a tremendous amount of political capital that his followers will allow him his occasional slip ups. The list goes on and on with his favorables – taking on the media like no other, has boundless energy, fights like hell, speaks with improvisation, funds his own campaign and doesn’t owe anybody anything, makes people laugh, has a self deprecating sense of humor, a billionaire with street cred, (add your own to the list) etc, etc.

    The other candidates don’t have as many positive bullet points and therefore suffer decline when they do slip up.

    Mathematically, for example, if Mr. Trump has twenty or thirty positive reasons to like him and the others only acquire about four or five, it’s no wonder they’re treading water when they do make mistakes. It becomes a wash.

    Mr. Trump’s supporters thus have become UNCONDITIONALLY infatuated with him, willing to brush off the bloody Megyn Kellys, murdering Mexican illegals, and insulted John McCains of the world.

    Next time somebody screams how they can’t understand for the life of them how Mr. Trump gets away unscathed with his “offensive” comments, run that up their flag pole.
