BREAKING: New Hampshire Poll – Donald Trump Extends Lead – More Than Cruz, Rubio, Bush Combined…

A new poll From Franklin Pierce (full pdf below) on behalf of the Boston Herald shows Donald Trump gaining an additional 5 points in the past week.  Trump now dominates the New Hampshire polling with 38%, Ted Cruz with 13% and Bush/Rubio with 10% each.

In addition, almost 60% of New Hampshire voters now see Donald Trump as inevitable Republican Presidential Nominee:

BOSTON HERALD – […] Trump has a massive 25-point advantage over his nearest rival Cruz while Sanders has grown his lead over Clinton to a 57-37 percent margin , according to the poll of likely Granite State primary voters conducted Jan. 26-30.

New Hampshire Most Likely

[…]  Trump now gets 38 percent of the vote in New Hampshire — up from 33 percent a week ago — while Cruz has stalled at 13 percent, according to the poll of 439 likely GOP primary voters.

Rubio and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush are getting 10 percent, while Ohio Gov. John Kasich has dropped to fifth place at 8 percent, according to the poll. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, businesswoman Carly Fiorina and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul are winning just 5 percent support, the poll shows.

Trump’s popularity has remained steady in the Granite State, with 56 percent of GOP voters saying they hold a favorable view of the billionaire business mogul. (read more)

    (AP) –
    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is infusing his closing argument to Iowans with Biblical references as his campaign visits some of the state’s conservative strongholds.

    Cruz has made courting Iowa’s evangelical Christians a cornerstone of his campaign and he has long tapped the Bible in his stump speech.

    At a stop Saturday at Darrell’s Place in Hamlin, Iowa, Cruz urged his supporters to “awaken the body of Christ that we may pull back from the abyss.”

    The line drew loud cheers from the western Iowa crowd.

    This is brilliant and why there has not been a surge in registrations.

    http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/01/31/iowa-ground-war-ted-cruzs-well-oiled-machine-versus-donald-trumps-secret-army/

    There’s no metric you can really apply though to figure that out. The Trump campaign is not telling people to go change your registration. This is where Chuck Laudner is really savvy. What they’re telling their people, they’re giving them voter registration forms, telling them to fill it out, register as Republican and take it to your caucus night because the little trick is the state party had to print its list long ago. So you run the risk of really frustrating the voter if they change their voter registration to participate and then they show up but they say ‘Hey, you’re not on the list.’ So this is where Laudner, being a former executive director of the Republican Party who knows the ins and outs of all this stuff, just says ‘Hey, we’re just going to arm our people with voter registration forms. We’re not going to rely on the Republican Party to have enough forms. We’ll just take them there that night and register them because then there’s no little problems that could upset our supporters.’

          Yep, you can see it in his poster detailing “how to caucus in Iowa” that Sundance is now using as his graphic for his Presidential Election open threads.

          Step one says, “Call us if you don’t know your caucus location, and we’ll tell you where to go.”

          Step two says, “If you’re not already a Republican, you’ll need to change that. But just bring these two forms of ID to your caucus location, and we’ll take care of the paperwork for you.”

          These things are not possible without having a solid ground game in place. It’s an unconventional ground game, to be sure, and a stealthy one, too. And if it works like I’m hoping it will, Trump’s numbers will be astonishing in Iowa. They’ll show such an unexpected and hidden level of support that the GOPers will find themselves at a complete loss for how to regroup and recover.

            I would wager to say that Trump’s ground game is more massive than any of the other candidates. It’s just not as visible as the others. I heard that he wasn’t using regular stationary offices with dumpsters. Instead he is using mobile units that move around and takes all paper trash with them. He’s not going to let the others spy on his operations and he isn’t allowing the media to come inside. That’s why the media says he must not have a ground game. Landslide today.

    “DONALD J. TRUMP FIRST TO ANNOUNCE STATEWIDE GRASSROOTS ORGANIZATION IN GEORGIA

    Georgia Operation Solidifies Grassroots Teams in All 159 Counties

    (New York, NY) January 28th, 2016 – Today, Donald Trump for President Inc. announced that it is the first 2016 Presidential campaign to organize County Managers in all 159 of Georgia’s counties. These committed volunteers consist of veterans of the Tea Party movement, GOP activists, local elected officials and political newcomers energized and inspired by Mr. Trump’s candidacy to get involved in the political process for the first time in decades.

    Mr. Trump said, “We have such tremendous support all over the country, the people of Georgia have been amazing. We are leading in all the polls, with 33% in the most recent Georgia survey. The support from this state is so important to me — with their help we will Make America Great Again!”

    Is this just another case of the pollsters re-cooking the books back closer to reality so that they can at least APPEAR to be objective and relevant to match up with the polling results this week? Seems to me all the polls are starting to converge on Trump being so far ahead of the rest of the pack as to be alone in the running.

    They can cook the books all they want when they are selling their personal private narratives, but when reality comes knocking on the door they have to choose between looking irrelevant, or being honest with the voters. Guess it sucks for them that reality is still needed to pay the bills.

    What really are the recently exposed Cruz negatives going to do to those Evangelicals and consistent conservatives?

    We know he’s been sliding for 10 days and they have two choices, Rubio or Trump. There is not much hope for Carson. Rubio is flawed in many ways. I believe he is merely gaining ground off the the ones behind him, not the man ahead. Cruz’s slump has gone to Trump.

    The leakage from Cruz may be a full blown hemorrhage by tomorrow night. And it won’t matter which way it goes. 4-5 pts kills him. It puts Rubio right next to him and sends Trump to a huge win.

    The unknown is what effect will the ‘Black Masses’ conducted by Beck can have on voters? (or whatever voodoo that sick man conjures as he tries to reap money from others’ need to believe).

    About 34 hours from now, we’ll have some idea.

  21. Microsoft (Bing) has been analyzing the social media sites and web activity and is predicting Trump and Clinton will win Iowa. They also predict Trump and Sanders will win New Hampshire. Trump and Clinton will then win South Carolina and Nevada. This is exciting news as it means:

    1) Trump has the real potential of winning all 50 states.

    2) Jeb!, who has been told he needs to win in Iowa and/or New Hampshire or lose his financial backing, will lose his financial backing. He may drop out after South Carolina.

    3) Kasich, the madman, will lose New Hampshire where he has been “all in” with his campaign, will be through. Christie as well.

    4) The GOPe will have no choice left but to back Rubio after South Carolina and we all know how that will end with his Senate voting record, his stance on amnesty, his spending issues, his ‘odd jobs’ issue with the Cuban Mafia, and his anchor baby status.

    5) Rand Paul is done already he just will not admit it. He will drop either right after his loss in Iowa or right after New Hampshire is lost.

    How does the level of excitement, (or in my case nerves) compare with previous elections. Were you guys this excited and sure of the candidate in previous years? It feels like Christmas Eve when I was a child, like it will never get here, and the expectations…oh my!!

    I never followed politics until this election and I have learned so much from this site. With that said, however, I’m going from anxious to elated, from completely sure to letting doubt creep in. We can’t get this one wrong!!

      It’s an excitement for a candidate this time, instead of just the enthusiasm against the dreadful specter of what the libprog candidate would do to the country.

      Donald Trump is not another career politician that we have to ‘make do’ with and reluctantly support because he is the lesser of two evils.
      This is an exciting moment in history, to have such a candidate…and it was so heartening for me to see my beloved Treehouse site get behind him so enthusiastically, that it has inspired me to come out of the shadows and join the conversation.
