New Michigan Poll – Donald Trump 51%, Ted Cruz 15%, Marco Rubio 12%…

An independent poll from Michigan – SEE HERE – conducted by Mitchell Research shows candidate Donald J Trump with a commanding lead more than three fold greater than nearest rival, Ted Cruz.

The size of Donald Trump’s lead is in direct alignment with the massive rally attendance noted in his last visit to the state:

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 Fox2) An exclusive Mitchell FOX 2 Detroit Poll of Michigan finds that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton hold large leads over their nearest GOP and Democratic opponents, respectively.

In a head to head matchup, Trump holds a 47 – 43 percent lead over Clinton with 10 percent undecided.

The latest Mitchell poll data has Trump holding a 3-1 lead over his two closest opponents in the Michigan Republican Presidential Primary.  (read more)

          Thank you! I am a Utah Trump Supporter as well. I recently took an online poll for Utah and I was suprised when I saw the results. I do not remember the poll but Trump was at 40%. I was totally shocked, especially since Rubio has the support of two of our representatives Love and Chafetz (my own district’s representative) so I thought that I was alone in my support of Trump. We need a World Savvy Businessman. I pray every day to protect him because deep in my soul I know that he is the right person for the office. I also am quite sure that he will surround himself with the best and the brightest in his cabinet,especially after his rally for Our Brave Veteran’s. Any veteran out there reading this Thank You for your service in defense of my families freedom. Do not be discouraged there is many more like us. I totally agree that Cruz is constitutionally ineligible to be president. I will not go into all the details. I am furious at Cruz and Rubio for trying to usurp our constitution. Cruz not only was born in Canada but to only one Citizen Parent. I need to research Rubio a little further but so far my research has shown that Rubio’ parents were not citizen’s when he was born. Obama already had one usurper we do not need anymore. I am also a little preterbed that Rubio has used the fact that he was once a Member of the LDS Church to his advantage in Utah. Anyway enough of my rant. I am inspired by Trump’s love of Citizen’s and Our Veteran’s. Go Trump. To all the Treeper’s out there thank-you for all of your great information and also a shoutout to Sundance for this wonderful forum of intelligent discussion. I love all you Treeper’s.

      • Remember the Republican voter is the Mormon church in Utah, and that is very establishment. Now the only bright part for Trump is that the Mormon vote is split 4 ways. The statewide establishment (Governor, and Hatch) is behind Jeb. The young and upcoming Republican politicians like Mia Love are for Rubio. The in the pew Mormon is for Carson. And then there are the Glen Beck Mormons that want Cruz. The only voters that leaves out are the non-Mormons. Yes, there are a lot of non-Mormons in Utah. Heck we have an openly Homosexual a mayor of Salt Lake City, just like the big states. But almost all those are Democrats. We don’t have a lot of Evangelicals and independent minded conservatives. Now if the Mormon vote is evenly split between Jeb, Rubio, Carson, and Cruz, then Trump might eek out a win because he has 20% support. Without that he will get second. If your wondering about Mike Lee, he agreed to not endorce anyone, in exchange for not being primaried.

    As much as I want to connect this poll result with last night, Sundance attempted to connect the poll results with Michigan rally attendance… a rally which was well before. We won’t see the new poll results until next week I imagine…or later… or never if they are good enough. Then again, the primaries begin next week, so maybe it’s closer to never.

    What we WILL see are smaller samplings of negatives attempting to influence the polls and the votes.

    Sure does.

    Over the last 48 hours Trump has put himself on display as a true leader and very Presidential.

    He was down to earth and genuine, patriotic and able to unite people, and he showed he can get a lot done in very short amounts of time with very little notice.

    He looked like a giant last night compared to the rest of the field. Everyone else is just playing out the string now. The best any of them can hope for is a position in the administration, with some of them being so inept they probably can’t even land that anymore.

      I was thinking the same thing – all of Ted’s talk about how the voters deserve someone who has humility – only One person came across as having humility last night.

      Good calls again this morning on Washington Journal (cspan) – many people finally saw who Trump truly IS, vs. who he’s been painted as. It made such a difference to those who have never seen him unedited, without cutting to commercials or pundits every time he says something worth hearing.

      It was such a smart move on Trump’s part – to present a platform for the people to see the actual man. He also chose some really interesting Veteran’s groups to receive the donations (list on his website) – I think the media already had the teleprompters loaded and ready to criticize him over Wounded Warrior Project, etc. but they selected smaller groups who will really put these donations to good use.

      Happy Friday, all – one more weekend and then the revolution begins!

        I think that’s a definite yes. in addition to playing his hand well, he has executive experience.

        Santorum on the other hand has no executive experience, he’s a professional politician, so I fail to see a place for him. Running a vast bureaucracy is the same as being a CEO or governor. Perhaps Trump can negotiate with FOX for Santorum to host a show.

        Ditto Ben Carson as a FOX contributor. His campaign organization failures prove he has no place in government in charge of a vast bureaucracy. But he’d be pretty boring as a TV host.

        If dopey Cruz had played his hand better, he would have had a place too. But he can kiss that goodbye. At this point his only option after losing his senate seat will be in the private sector. Perhaps Goldman Sachs has a satellite office in Calagary?

It made me think he had an ego problem with not being an equal with Trump in that situation. Hit me that he thought his joining in added something real worthwhile to the event – I wouldn’t have missed him. Enjoyed Huckabee a lot. He seems like he gives his all when he is committed. I think he would be a helpful part of Trump’s admin – wherever he was appointed.

The Task Force advocates a greater economic and social integration between Canada, Mexico, and the United States as a North American region. (The North American Union)

      …. Ted Cruz taking in so much money from Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway, who is affiliated with Heinz, which of course is related to John Kerry. What the hell is that all about?

      Carville is partners with Stan Goldberg who is the propagandist for the globalists and CAGW. They are political strategists who helped get politicians elected in 60 different countries including Tony Blair and Bill Clinton Clinton and Blair are pushers of the Fabian Socialist Third Way – government for the international corporate giants by the corporate giants.

      In other words Cruz is a slimy traitor to the American people.

  21. 51%%%%!!!! What a great morning. Way to go Michigan! I want 50 or greater from all states. It will happen. He is the true LEADER, he has lead on ALL the tough issues since he announced!

    -Trump proposes wall – nation freaks out – illegal Immigration becomes a major issue. All candidates jump to securing the border when most were for AMNESTY months/years before.

    Trump tells Black Lives Matter – All Lives Matter and stands by it, ridicules those that apologized for saying it. First candidate to say he stands with the police and they are being horribly misrepresented for the poor actions of a small percentage of officers. He said it when it was NOT popular to defend them.

    Trump reminds the world that Muslim populations within the country were celebrating when the towers came down. The statement took massive courage in this political climate. He was attacked by both parties and the world! Stood firm, the truth came out. Substantiated by news reports, calls to radio hosts, and law enforcement.

    Trump says there are places in France and England that non Muslims and police don’t go. Country leaders call it preposterous! World freaks out. Police officers finally come out to speak the truth. Admit it’s true.

    -Trump speaks out about the serious mass immigration policies are having in Germany Etc. People call him a racist. Coordinated sexual and physical attacks happen simultaneously across 5-6 countries with over 1000 attacks reported in just Germany on News Years Eve. Hmmm, who was right?

    Trump says no more Muslim immigration until we can figure out what the hell is going on and secure the entry process. World goes crazy. Stands firm. Other candidates say similar things but without the word “Muslim” because they are no different than O, can’t define the real problem.

    Trump has been the only republican candidate in recent history to take on the media, and I mean take on…head on, like running into a Mack truck. Except the truck ends up splitting in two, leaving a brave man still standing, stronger and more respected than ever. The recent decision to skip the debate on the network with the largest republican viewing audience (highest rated too) days before the first important votes are cast in Iowa. This took courage and amazing vision, all while raising millions for the people he loves the most, vets and wounded warriors.

    He is the only one who has come out strongly against obamatrade TPP, which will kill American jobs. Republican and democrat elites want it passed so you know it is just a massive payoff to their special interests and donors. Trump says it must be in the best interest of America and this is NOT!
    And lastly and most importantly he is the most pro-American, pro-military, pro-border candidate we have probably ever seen that is using his OWN MONEY to fund his campaign!

    The reasons above are clear. He is the ONLY one who can lead this country out of the horrible mess created by all talk, no action, bought and paid for politicians. It’s time to stop the madness!

    Trump or No One!

      They still have plenty of guests on that are not yet believers, and they all pretty much would prefer anyone to win but Trump, but they look at the numbers and see the writing on the wall and make fun of all these nay sayers who still keep trying to say, but so and so is going to sneak in there and Joe will say right, show me the evidence of that.

      Since the Trump rally in Joe’s hometown, that his brother emceed, I think Joe finally started to be won over. He even said it’s one thing to see all of Trump’s Yuge rally’s, but to see it in your own hometown, it just seemed so surreal.

      And Joe definitely gets a kick out of watching Trump make his moves. I enjoy listening to Joe crack up about it all, makes me smile too! Does the heart good, especially during these stressful times just hoping beyond all hope that the votes come in as all of us here in the tree house believe they will!

A person who loves to write and analyze and who hates fallacious reasoning. The mother of two adopted children both with certain special needs who have been a total delight to us. Follower of Jesus since 1970. Lover of my nation. Born in Massachusetts in 1949, raised in Michigan, immigrant to the South in 1977, and have never looked back to the increasingly liberal great Mitten State.

    I consider myself a rational person and my reasons for putting my trust in Trump are rational as well as spiritual. It would appear that no man could be exposing the corruption in the media or the Republican establishment if God were not with him. I am also enjoying watching him express talents that I did not know even existed. We usually put our trust in someone if we think they think like us, or are as smart as we are. This is the first time I am realizing it is wise to put our trust in someone who is more highly skilled than we are, and I believe that watching Donald Trump I am learning new things all the time.

    I do not consider myself a maniac or dope for supporting Donald Trump,and I think all you who think you have us pegged are arrogant and wrong.

    We need to start doing the math. 51% for Trump in Michigan is awesome, but Michigan’s 56 delegates are allocated proportionately and the threshold is 15%. Using the current poll as a model, both Trump and Cruz would win delegates, something like for 38 for Trump and 18 for Cruz? If we can get Cruz below 15% then Trump will win all 56 delegates.

    Trump needs 1236 delegates to win the nomination outright. Forget about Rule 40, because Trump is the only candidate likely to win 8 states the RNC will either lower the threshold or get rid of the rule altogether so that their chosen boys are still eligible. I do believe that if Trump doesn’t win the nomination outright, after the first vote they’ll declare the convention brokered and all candidates will be eligible, including Bush. Trump needs to get 1236, then the RNC cannot screw with him…. or us.

    Anybody see this! Not good.

    This morning Governor Merrill was adamant that New Hampshire primary voters would choose an establishment candidate to represent them in the GOP nomination process. He specifically pointed to the campaigns of Jeb Bush and John Kasich as those he approved of.

    He also appeared dismissive of the possibility that either Donald Trump or Ted Cruz would win New Hampshire.

    Then he dropped a bombshell that clearly had Fox Business host Neil Cavuto a bit stunned.

    Merrill indicated it would be a brokered Republican convention regardless, and from there a proper candidate would be nominated.

    This would be a process by which all previous primary election decisions would effectively be dismissed during the Republican convention scheduled for July 18th-21st in Cleveland, Ohio.

    Delegates would then no longer be obligated to cast votes as determined by earlier primary elections. Instead, Republican power brokers are allowed to intervene and attempt to coordinate/trade/cajole/threaten, a desired outcome. In such a scenario, a majority of the convention delegates could for example, ultimately decide to nominate Jeb Bush to be the 2016 Republican candidate for President even if Mr. Bush did not win a single primary race.

    If Trump doesnt come out in support of legalizing medical marijuana these polls wont matter, Bernie will win. Lots of states have recently made the push to legalize and in my state we will be voting in November along side presidential ticket to legalize it….lots of young voters are registering as a result….he needs a full plan that will outline how he will use the new tax revenue from marijuana sales….im pro medical but im against recreational. He needs to get out ahead of this prior to NH. Mark my words he will lose if he does not have plans to legalize it…..he would absolutly gain the black vote too and thats not racist. Criminal statistics show high arrest rates of blacks due to marijuana. He has positioned himself best to have a solid plan because his would include getting cartels and gangs off the street first.

      Maybe medical marijuana is a big issue to you, but I’m sure it’s not to most people, especially Republicans. We have much bigger issues, jobs, ISIS, illegals, health care, etc.

      And by the way, if you think that legalizing pot is going to get the cartels and gangs off of the streets, I want to remind you that heroin is far more profitable, and I think NH is suffering a major heroin problem.

        I want to add that I was a pot smoker when I was young but now view the drug as harmful. If people are dying or suffering from medical problems and marijuana helps them, then I support their ability to access it. But I suspect the vast majority of “patients” are no more than smokers who have no medical issues other than an addiction to pot. And the dispensaries, could they be any less professional or more laughable? If it’s a serious drug with serious medical uses, then why not sell it like other serious drugs? Have a real pharmaceutical company produce it and package it properly, and let it be sold in a regular pharmacy.


      • Right you are Sandra. This medical pot, is a ruse. Drugs are Bad, and more importantly they are bad because drugs make you happy right where a person is at.

        Life is painful, boring, and unpredictable. That is normal. The unpleasantness that is felt is the motivation to better ones self, not give into being happy right where they’re at.

        The best example of drugs making a person happy where they’re at, is morphine on the battle field. A soldier could have his guts hanging out and after the morphine shot, feel okay about it.

    If the Republican Party doesn’t treat Trump fair, there won’t be a Republican Party. He can form a new Party.
