Zogby National GOP Poll: Donald Trump 45%, Ted Cruz 13%, Marco Rubio 8%…

The latest Zogby poll of national GOP voters shows Donald J Trump with a commanding lead of 45% a full 32 points higher than second place Ted Cruz.  Additionally an Arizona poll shows Donald Trump at 38% 22 points ahead – LINK

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton greets a supporter following her address at the 18th Annual David N. Dinkins Leadership and Public Policy Forum at Columbia University in New York

(Via Zogby Analytics) […]  Mr. Trump polls over 40% among men (49%) and women (41%), as well as Republicans (47%) and independents (49%), conservatives (46%) and moderates (45%). Mr. Cruz scores double digits among men (10%), women (16%), Republicans (15%), independents (10%), and conservative (15%).

We tested a series of three-way races and found Mr. Trump trouncing all of his rivals — 53% to 20% for Mr. Cruz, and 11% for Mr. Rubio; 57% to 23% for Mr. Cruz, and 8% for Mr. Christie; 57% to 23% for Mr. Cruz and 7% for Mr. Kasich; 55% to 25% for Mr. Cruz, and 10% for Mr. Bush.

In a series of head-to head matchups with individual challengers for the nomination, Mr. Trump led Mr. Cruz 59% to 29%, Mr. Rubio 64% to 27%, Mr. Bush 68% to 22%, Mr. Kasich 73% to 15%, and Mr. Christie 69% to 19%.

National polls may mean less right now – and often do – before the winnowing process begins in Iowa and New Hampshire and voters actually cast ballots. But, at least for now, Donald Trump has captured the imaginations of Republican likely voters nationwide. And his support looks wide and deep. He has defied the conventional wisdom at every turn – including a bold prediction that he will win Iowa.  (read more)

          I’m also surprised at Sowell. I’d like to hear from him, in particular, specifics on why he came to agree with the NR conclusions about Trump. I’m not willing at this point to draw a lot of negative conclusions about him, though I certainly don’t “get it.”

          I found out today a conservative brother-in-law of mine (he truly is conservative) agrees with NR. That greatly surprised me. While I think it’s no doubt true that many of the people who signed that NR piece see things slipping away from themselves if Trump were elected, I can’t imagine what my bro-in-law is thinking — or who he’s supporting, given what I know of his views. Obviously, I can’t (and won’t) just dismiss him, either. Will try to dissuade him.

It’s really a matter of personal opinion of what it is or isn’t but it could be considered a like minded group. My brand of Conservatism would have to totally exclude the Globalists. So maybe I’m a Nationalist and horribly politically incorrect. Turn me in for a macro microagression (then ESAD).

Trump in my opinion is the last hope we have to stop the Globalists in their tracks. I still think the majority of us still believe in Freedom, Liberty and the Rights of the Individual. Although I have Conservative values, now more than ever, I must let my Preservative values take over. We must save our our Republic at all costs. I stand with Trump

        This hits the nail on it’s head. As Sundance has so often said, this is a shoot’n match that involves huge amounts of money and influence. And the insurgency and Trump—GO TRUMP!!—have thrown all of this into question. In one way or another, all the people organized by NR and Megyn, depend upon things as they are. Trump and the insurgency aim to change that. We’re effectively standing on their air supply so it stands to reason that they might be a little upset with us.

      Here’s the problem, Boss. They keep lobbing around the precious word “conservative” and how Trump isn’t one, can’t be one, never was one — and Ted Cruz is the ultimate in conservatism.

      So what the heck does that even mean anymore! In the past the term “conservative” to me meant Republican, but obviously that hasn’t been true in a long time, and is why many of us dumped the GOP party and had to rejoin lately in order to ensure a vote for Trump.

      Calling people conservatives is ludicrous and boring to me .. Lowry and his little crowd at NR don’t even know what it means I promise you, because the fact is that a candidate running in these united states as a “pure” conservative — like Ted Cruz one assumes — would only result in still another loss. We are very sick of losing!

      It’s fine to be a purist, to demand that each of your tests be met, but it ain’t gonna happen. Not now, and maybe never again. What can and must be done is that we hire a competent manager, someone who will get our company/country back in the black and making money rather than losing it hand over fist. Enter Donald J Trump and millions of us believe he can do it.

      This world needs a strong America, a winning America; Trump understands that, and so do we.

The more the amiable Huckabee tried to get friendly with Rush, the more Rush repelled away from him. We were devastated to hear the trash they were talking, making Huck into some religious fanatic, completely ignoring his 11 year successful term serving as Governor of Arkansas. They did this to Ron Paul too, marginalizing him as some tinfoil hat wearer.

      It was even worse with Glenn Beck. Glenn dedicated his entire show even crying on the air over how Mike Huckabee didn’t talk to him at the airport about rejecting Romney’s Mormonism or something to that effect.

      Medved was another one during that time. And Hewitt too.

      Hannity and others like Joseph Farrah liked Huck but said he couldn’t win so they rejected Huck too. Huckabee was actually treated many times better by the left at that time, due to his fantastic personality.

    • That statement doesn’t apply to Trump and anyone who would think that Trump would go “rogue with executive orders” simply doesn’t understand the man Trump.

      Executive orders are not Trump’s style. Executive orders are in complete contrast to his basic nature of being a DEAL MAKER which he wholeheartedly loves doing. He’s a real communicable, personable and deal making guy. To take away the utter joy and chance to make a deal, to negotiate, by the boring, lonely and unfulfilling act of an executive order would equate to taking JOY away from Trump.

      Trump loves making deals, it actually brings him JOY!

        I agree. That concerns me.

        And there’s this: “The GOP nominating contest will be decided by an intricate, state-by-state slog for the 2,472 delegates at stake between February and June. And thanks to the Republican National Committee’s allocation rules, the votes of “Blue Zone” Republicans — the more moderate GOP primary voters who live in Democratic-leaning states and congressional districts — could weigh more than those of more conservative voters who live in deeply red zones. Put another way: The Republican voters who will have little to no sway in the general election could have some of the most sway in the primary.”

        That MIGHT, however, work to Trump’s advantage:

        The quote is from http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/the-gops-primary-rules-might-doom-carson-and-cruz/ (Personally, I’d take some of it with a grain of salt, but it does explain something of the delegate process.)

    STAGE 7: Full-scale and unrestrained meltdown, panic, lashing-out, threats, recriminations, self-important foot-stomping, overt union with the Right, complete fury (I can no longer in good conscience support this party of misfits, terrorist-lovers, communists, and heathens).

    The establishment on both sides of the Uniparty are apoplectic that they might have a populist revolt too big to contain. I love it!!!! Now we just have to make sure everyone gets to the primaries/caucuses/etc. and pushes this thing home!

    I’m hoping for that Huckabee endorsement, also.Please, God, please.!.No Fox, no Breitbart, No talk radio, no Blaze for me. I’m done. I feel so foolish and also totally duped.. No more. I watched all the rallies and I’m obsessed about Trump winning. For me, it’s about security for my children, etc. The economy, jobs and etc. This stuff that’s going on is terrible. Who else has the guts to pick up the pieces and put it back together..No one, no one, no one. I think Gut boy carries Princess Dana’s water so she won’t get dirty. Trump needs to handle this like a Presidential crisis. with grace and dignity. They’d never expect that. This may be in the wrong place. I’m still figuring it out a bit.

      We were totally duped! They have taken the Conservative and Tea Party movements and led them astray. I first started suspecting this when McCain threw the 2008 election for a historic election of the first “black” president. Then it was confirmed by our slimy GOPe leadership in Congress since the 2010 and 2014 elections. Now their cheerleaders in media have been exposed.

      So beware once Trump becomes inevitable that they will turn and try to attach themselves to our movement and once again try to “lead” us to a Trumpian victory. This includes Rush, Levin, Faux and the rest. The GOPe playbook will be just like 1980, where they got Bush the VP slot along with his minions embedded within the Reagan administration. I hope the Donald is too smart for this and will slap them down. The best way to stop this is for DJT to roll into Cleveland with 60% or more of the delegates and its a fait accompli. Then the GOPe will have very little leverage to pull their shenanigans.

        Forewarned is forearmed. They might try but we’re onto their con game. This is a new era–the Trump era–and the landscape will be changed forever for them. Go Trump!

    This time around I’m voting for a candidate who is NOT an attorney, Not educated at Harvard, Not living off of other people’s taxes, and does Not have a picture of Eugene Debs hanging in their office…….I’m voting for that ‘bastard’ businessman. I’m done playing the red/blue game.

    Has anyone (other than me) considered the possibility that Trump is literally “buying America” for us? In so many ways other than just monetary. I don’t know about anyone else, but I am extremely grateful and humbled by his gift. May God bless our future President and ensure his safety and well-being.

    “We tested a series of three-way races and found Trump trouncing all of his rivals: 53% to 20% for Cruz, and 11% for Mr. Rubio; 57% to 23% for Cruz, and 8% for Christie; 57% to 23% for Cruz and 7% for Kasich; 55% to 25% for Cruz, and 10% for Bush.

    In a series of head-to head match-ups with individual challengers for the nomination, Trump led Cruz 59% to 29%, Rubio 64% to 27%, Bush 68% to 22%, Kasich 73% to 15% and Christie 69% to 19%.”

    “But, at least for now, Donald Trump has captured the imaginations of Republican likely voters nationwide. And his support looks wide and deep. He has defied the conventional wisdom at every turn–including a bold prediction that he will win Iowa. Candidates normally try to dampen expectations in early state voting so as to appear to have done better than most thought.”

    “… But it appears that Trump’s political acumen is much better than any of us had given it credit for.”

    In the bag. 😉

    Peviously, via News Max, Zogby made many prognostications reference what he insisted would be the eventual fall of Trump by now. Zogby is eating crow now, as will the National Rino contributors. They will not get their usual invitations to inaugural balls.

    Looks like Cruz is going down. If Trump wins Iowa this is no longer going to be between Trump and Cruz, it will Trump against one of Bush/Rubio/Christie/Kasich. Either way, looking good.

    I predict a little nattering over that AZ poll. Doucey isn’t pure enough for some but he’s light years ahead of his challenger. We actually ended up with a budget and a little surplus after a year and already the many libs around here are making plans to spend it and crying about what a cheapskate Doucey is for not throwing the money at the children. But I had forgotten businessman Fife Symington. Politics were really interesting then as the good old boy network was still first and foremost.

    Before that was businessman Ev Mecham, who was impeached for being a hopeless kook. All are going to be held up as why we don’t want a businessman.

    Every time I see that picture of Marco Rubio drinking a glass of water, I go into giggle fits. In context, it’s a mocking of Marco Rubio having cotton mouth during his rebummal of one of Obama’s speeches. Yes, I typed rebummal and not rebuttal on purpose.

  37. Always great to see Trump polls in the 40s! I always said to myself if Trump attains 42% and above on all national polls from then on out he’d be a safe win. He’s doing that lately.
    Sundance mentioned Trump’s also leading in a new Arizona poll. For some reason it’s not listed on REAL CLEAR POLITICS and not mentioned much anywhere else. So I thought I’d post it here because it is impressive!

    Their preachy, prima donna attitudes are just funny, to me. Funny like a Shakespearean comedy, which means not really ha ha funny. No one is 100% ‘conservative’…the word has lost any clear meaning it may once have had. I consider myself conservative, but I have positionss any Bernie Sanders supporter would be right there with me on, I’m an inveterate tree hugger for one thing (not enough to spike trees, though).
    It’s just silly, and particularly with the present mood in the country will fall flat on it’s face and make people turn away from what they want even further, and faster.
