New Hampshire Poll – Donald Trump 30%, John Kasich 14%, Rubio and Bush 13%…

The ever inconsistent Monmouth University pollster Patrick Murray presents yet another one of his grand political estimations (full pdf below).  However, multiple notes of caution:  #1) This is Patrick Murray, who hasn’t done an accurate poll in all of 2016 campaign season.  #2) This poll was conducted prior to the GOP debate.

In addition to the prior notes of caution – a one day “private poll’ conducted on Sunday (post debate), shows Marco Rubio support has dropped significantly.  This was reported in politico:

[…]  Donald Trump holds a wide lead in the survey, receiving 35 percent. He more than doubles runner-up Kasich, who has 15 percent. In third is Jeb Bush, with 13 percent. Behind Rubio in fifth and sixth place, respectively, are Christie and Ted Cruz. Both receive 8 percent.  (link)

The Sunday post debate poll shows a wider lead for Trump and a significant slip for Rubio – but again, polling this close to the vote is notoriously sketchcy.

Here’s the full Monmouth Result:

    So it’s Kasich’s turn to be number 2 and Jeb!’s turn to be number 3 in the polls. The debate is cover for this unsurprising turn of of poll numbers. Such machinations is supposed to keep everyone glued to the New Hampshire Primary and beyond.
    Anything could happen breathlessly reported. (sarc)

  2. Trump needs a good ground game. I’m hoping he decides to let his people do their thing. I’ve read articles where he doesn’t let them put in the effort…my opinion is it might cost too much? Don’t know. I so hope he pulls NH out. I so cannot go for Cruz after what happened in Iowa.

      Please stop with the useless negative speculation which is totally un-grounded in fact.

      Do your part to openly point out to others every fact you read here. You can lead a horse to water but it won’t drink if it’s too lazy. This poll is shows Trump doing well just like the Iowa polls to drop people’s guards and motivation to go vote……because someone else can do the lifting. He doesn’t have to spend a single penny in addition to going to rallies. You do the work, and stop blaming him. This is what is wrong with Americans. Blame everyone else except asking yourselves how you can help even if you can’t reach Trump HQ. You’ve read a lot, know a lot…….then speak up. If you can’t and won’t, then it’s over. Because times a millio this not-my-problem-not-my-duty-and-leader-will-do-it-all attitude is exactly how Obama got into office both terms.

      New Hampshire is famous for a huge primary vote. Almost 50-70% of all eligible voters vote during primaries. Since turn-out is so huge, value of a ground game is not as high as a place like Iowa. He will be fine.

        Well, I have to DISagree with both of you. Trump took 7 delegates in Iowa. Cruz took 8. Hardly a ‘crushing defeat’. And Cruz likely took the lead due to underhanded tactics vs Carson. Time may tell that tale later, but it doesn’t matter: Cruz didn’t help himself with that smarmy display of sneakery, and he has a whole one delegate lead. BIG DEAL.

        Despite all the sneering that Trump doesn’t know what he’s doing, he seems to be carrying a rather HUGE lead in every…single…poll…

        So, I don’t buy your negative attitude at all. One wonders if you’re a provocateur, here to spread discontent…

          And if Trump spent less per delegate than what Cruz spent per delegate, that proves he’s a more competent executive manager. Part of the key to his success is not just earning money, but spending it wisely. Feeding Jerry Falwell Wendy’s hamburgers. 🙂

              When Jerry Falwell Jr. endorsed Trump in Iowa, they did a couple of events together. At the events, Falwell told how he was just a simple boy from Virginia and he expected to be served champagne and caviar on Trump’s airplane — and instead they had Wendy’s hamburgers. It was a good laugh line.

            That is, as my Brit friends would say, bollocks. I thought this site was supposed to be known for it’s openmindedness and generous sharing of opinions, regardless of whether everyone happens to agree on all points. The longer I’m here the more it’s looking like everyone is expected to believe Trump is perfect and had better not say otherwise.

            I’m a strong Trump supporter. In fact, I recently registered as a Republican for the first time in my life, as distasteful as that is to me so I can vote for him in my state’s primary. (I was an Independent, and years before that a Democrat) Trump’s an intelligent man, and seemingly a very strategic thinker (see Scott Adams’ blog). That doesn’t mean he’s doing everything exactly right (he himself admits that); though he is, in fact, doing a whole lot right, especially since he hasn’t done any of this before.

            But why insist that he can do virtually no wrong? You — and a good handful of others, I’ve noticed — make what seem to me amazing leaps of judgment about other people posting here when you don’t even know them/us, which apparently to you justifies making nasty comments about them. This whole “concern trolling” thing is mostly BS it seems to me. Maybe there are a few such real trolls here. But there ARE also legitimate concerns that can, and might, be expressed and people ought to be allowed to say so without the wrath of God falling on them. We didn’t park our brains at the door when we came here. What’s the problem with letting people express what bothers them? How does that threaten any of the rest of you? I don’t get it.

                Serious Trump supporter here, but I have to agree that an inadequate ground game, including lack of resources to identify and prevent fraud at the caucuses cost Trump Iowa. As I’ve watched the polls and Trump’s rallies, I have to think that the polls showing him 20 or more points ahead of every other candidate are probably closer to the truth than the Iowa caucus results. It is not believable that with the agenda pollsters’ best efforts, they couldn’t deliver a significant majority for Cruz or Rubio, yet on caucus day, with Mr. Softy helping in the background and their “infantry” blocking at the caucus doors and at the voting tables/boxes they suddenly make all the polls irrelevant or liars. Does not make sense.

                Secondarily, Trump needs to be Trump and not get bogged down in minutiae of policy arguments, but when eminent domain comes up, it’s just plain incompetent not to be prepared to address the GOPe’s lies. I’d suggest he have some photos in his jacket pocket: 1. Ms. Coking’s house when Mr. Guccione offered her $1M and built the framework of the Penthouse Boardwalk Hotel and Casino around it; 2. Ms. Coking’s house after she moved to CA in 2010, which is also after Trump had completed his Casino project, without taking the Coking property. The house sold for $530,000 in an auction on July 31, 2014, but not to Trump or to the NJ Casino Reinvestment Development Authority, which was the government entity that condemned the property for eminent domain. He should also have pictures of Texas Ranger stadium, built by the Bush family using eminent domain. Also some pix of highways built using eminent domain. Maybe a copy of the government resolutions that condemned the Ranger stadium property and the Coking property to show that it was government action, not him privately doing these things. That takes the focus back to how very much it matters who you have in government and whether they’re going to represent you or some fat cat donor.

                I doubt Trump goes into a negotiation for a golf course without knowing land values, the topography, geology, and environmental regulations applicable. It’s simply critical information; a matter of due diligence. His campaign team needs to step up on this. It’s a matter of even more than national security. It’s a matter of national survival.

              Missing the debate was a great strategy. Trump new the fix was in and he was to be set up. His debate performance against Cruz would have been spun as bad, so he would have lost and there would have not been any questions. His not showing up caused a great unknown for both the Cruz camp and the RINOs. So they were now forced to cheat to win and doing so he exposed their hand. Also his remarks at the last debate reference the donors further exposes the corruption and he needs to hit home on this issue everyday. I think the GOP was going to cheat from the beginning. Let Cruz win. Cruz was not going to get any momentum from Iowa in the other primaries. Rubio would have been second and Trump third or tide for second, but that would have been equviliant to coming in third. Missing the debate let Trump avoid this trap and destroying the uni-party momentum that would have been generated in the media for the RINO canidate. Similar traps will be set at each primary but I have faith Trump can out smart them. It is just the computer counts that worry me. I have faith Trump will have experts working on this problem now.

        Rubio’s 10 point swing out of nowhere, from 14% to 24%, was garnered in just a few counties, inexplicably, suggesting fraud. Marco Rubio got 12,000 of his votes in just 3 counties.

If no Carson voters had changed their minds, though, Trump probably still would have come in second to Cruz. 3-4 votes per precinct is a LOT. Cruz won because 64% of Iowa caucus goers were self-identified evangelicals and Cruz had snookered enough of them with his “awaken the body of Christ” rubbish. Cruz spent a ton of time and money getting the evangelicals out in Iowa, but he can’t win the nomination that way. He’ll be lucky to win my state of MN on March 1 (another caucus state that favors the most religious candidate).

The Cruz campaign did not verify because they saw it as something they could use to win. Knowing how many times networks have had to backtrack on pronouncements any person concerned with honesty would have checked to be sure it was true. Oh, and as far an apology goes here’s what Cruz should have done. He should have sorted out who did what and fired those responsible for such bad judgement then apologized to Carson saying this is what he did instead of trying to spin it.

I suspect they played up Trump’s no show like grand opera. As I said that’s all speculation since I didn’t watch. Megynecology Kelly said the race would be different, and she was right. Fox undermined Trump and succeeded. On the plus side, I doubt they’ll be able to pull the same thing on him again. We have moved on from Fox. But turning off Fox won’t affect their ratings (if you’re being counted) — you have to turn ON a competitor even if you mute them. I’m hoping they;ll suffer a YUGE rating drop. We cancelled the Wall Street Journal and written them a letter saying why. Murdoch has turned both into a yellow tabloid. Sad to see.

          Exactly. I don’t know if there is a way to do that unless you want to “recount” all the votes by matching the selection one-by-one versus the machine. I guess you can do that w/ a smaller state, but it is virtually impossible in bigger states (basically double count). I’d hope he will add additional ground resources by having “observers” at these precincts to see if there are any “shenanigans” going on like Iowa. But it is very difficult to track w/ the e-voting. I believe there are only 27 states that require a particular e-voting system has a paper trail mechanism for “verification” if needed. There are at least ten vendors or more utilized by each state and they don’t share their “process” (i.e. source code). So there is no consistency or transparency in how they tabulate and count the votes from each vendor. For example, Microsoft was the vendor in Iowa and happened to be very “active” w/ its political inclination. So even if it “did” it job the perception still didn’t look good at all. I guess I am old school, but I still prefer the “hanging chad” ways of doing thing. The process is so critical to our democracy and it needs to be as transparent as possible.

      I agree that Trump needs a better ground game. Trump’s supporters aren’t like normal voters. Trump draws support from working class people without university degrees, and those people don’t tend to vote unless pushed. If Trump had got people without degrees to turn out to the polls at the same rate as people with degrees, then he would have won in a landslide. We aren’t talking about Trump getting just one extra delegate.

      I’m in Australia, so I can’t help with Trump’s ground game. Those of you in the USA need to get out there and volunteer.

The people who originally started this roll appear to be highly educated, economically savvy, understanding of leadership and entrepreneurialism, individualistic, etc. That Mr. Trump also has a platform appealing to people from all walks of life, education, cultures, religions, experiences only speaks to the fact that voters are tired of and angry about a self-serving political class run by lobbyists.

They’ve bought into that none of their peers support Trump. So even if they do, they won’t say so. This only exacerbates the meme the pundits are pushing. I can’t remember but I bet the same meme was pushed about Ronald Reagan. Keep in mind it was used on Sarah Palin, Christine O’Donnell and anyone who challenges the establishment elite.

            I agree that there are a lot of educated people who are also silently for Donald Trump for President. But they are afraid to speak up.

            I happen to be the opposite of silent and am an outspoken supporter of Donald Trump. For example, when I comment on online articles that I have 3 degrees and have an engineering and management corporate background and I support Donald Trump for President to refute the story that only the uneducated blue collar people support him, you would not believe the comments belittling me and telling me that I am just a Motel 6 housekeeper, etc. The people trying to get rid of Trump in this election, both Democrats and Republicans, will do anything to smear the supporters of Donald Trump. They really hate it when educated people say they are for Trump for President.

            I loved it when Donald Trump, at his New Hampshire town hall meeting today, said he would rather talk to people, like the people in his audience, to find out what the real problems and concerns of the people are then to hire expensive consultants to tell him. That is the right way to be a leader and sadly many corporate management personnel do not do this. I love that Trump takes the team approach and is willing to listen to everyone to make America Great Again!

            I proudly stand with all the men and women, whether educated or uneducated, that support Donald Trump for President! His ideology truly speaks to my heart.

          Maybe it’s because of the size of the rallies – you can’t dress up in business clothes because you’re dealing with long lines, walking long distances, waiting in the elements like you’re going to a football game or concert. So everybody looks pretty ordinary in the crowd.

          I have an MBA and worked for a major US corporation, my husband has a double major and is an entrepreneur, and my dad is a surgeon and we are all supporting Trump. At our local rally I saw an eye surgeon, local author and our state senator among many other professionals. And there were plenty of “working class” folks too and everyone around us was polite, happy, and enthusiastic. Probably the safest I’ve ever felt in a crowd – even than in some smaller ones.

          I guess the constant “working class appeal” comments are a hit at how blunt Mr Trump is – surely that wouldn’t appeal to the more refined, classy voter. Wrong! This voter is about as prissy as you get. But I respect a strong, brave man who speaks the truth and Mr Trump is that hands-down. I’m so sick of wormy little sniveling suck-ups (sound like a certain Cubanadian?) that say and do anything to get power. Begone, Wormtongue!

You cannot conclude that people without degrees are in some way deficient, are politically naive, or need help.

      Not quite sure where this “ground game” or lacks of is coming from. If you based it on from Iowa, then you need to go back and learn more about it. First, in Iowa, he lost w/ about 6K, less than the junior senator from texas from 1,681 precincts, where he spent half of the money. That is about 4 votes per precinct. The junior senator had invested heavily in the state w/ great support from the Evangelicals and still needed to pull dirty tricks to steal the “election” w/ a claim of having about 5K volunteers on the ground. And he still only “managed’ to win by 4 votes per precinct. Second, Trumpy won most of the rural areas where I assumed new voters came out versus urban where most of the “old” voters resided. Trumpy executed his strategy by driving for new voters and he did and almost pulled it off. There is one thing I’d agree w/ you about the “ground game” and it is not about the strategy or tactics of it. It is more about logistic in the context of I’d spend money to have resources in monitoring these voting stations and observe if there are any “shenanigans” going on, but can’t do w/ e-voting, which is a shame.

The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to the doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead the two parties should be almost identical, so the that American people can ‘throw the rascals out’ at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy. — Tragedy and Hope

          China trade improves economy AND makes fight less likely
          When I was about ten years old, like many conservative middle-class families, our inclination was to resist anything to do with Red China. In that black and white world, you were either for us or against us. Trade with China was thought to be trade with the enemy. A funny thing happened, though, along the way. Many conservatives came to understand a larger truth. As trade began to blossom with China, many conservatives, myself included, came to admit that trade improves our economic well-being AND makes us less likely to fight. The success of trade with China made many conservatives rethink their view of the world. — Rand Paul

He managed to convince 1.5% of Iowa’s population to vote for him. That’s fine. That’s how you win Iowa. He can’t win the nomination, though. There aren’t enough religion-first voters, and a couple of filibusters do not a president make. When Cruz comes up short, he’ll throw his support behind the GOPe candidate and wait for his “turn” in some future presidential race.

        The Bush name has a stigma attached to it up here, after GW’s incompetence, we can’t afford another Bush in The White House.
        College students dislike Bush, much of the southern tier of the state had swapped over to democrat in 2008 & 2012 elections, but appears disillusioned with corrupt DC as usual politics & they’re coming back home for Donald Trump.

        I rarely get out to the NH seacoast region, but I could imagine Bush has support along the border with south & central Maine. However further up the coast such as Bangor, Eustis & outlying areas, the support for Bush very likely tapers off rapidly due to democrats dumping masses of Somalis in & around those towns a while back. Mainers up there surely resent the democrat’s transplanted public assistance leeches.

        I’ll give you that the Bush name likely has some support from the bizarre alternate culture along the seacoast of both states, but otherwise Bush isn’t popular & definitely not to the tune of 13%.

          I have posted this before and will post it repeatedly. It is a true story and it happened to me in Virginia.

          I went to vote for Ken Cuccinelli (a Republican the establishment DID NOT WANT)
          I touched the touch screen for Cuccinelli I thought
          The Check mark came up next to McAuliff
          Thinking I may have touched the wrong box, I backed out and revoted
          This time I watched my finger touch Cuccinelli
          The check mark came up next to McAuliff
          I backed out again and did the same thing. Same thing happened. McAuliff.
          That’s THREE times I voted Cuccinelli and THREE times the machine checked McAuliff
          I stepped back and boomed out “This machine has been rigged!”
          The poll watches came running
          They told me what to do. The same thing I’d done three times.
          The fourth time the check came up next to Cuccinelli
          I refused the “I voted” sticker because as I told the man “Im not sure I did.”

          If anyone can explain how it was that the FOURTH time I did what I’d done four other times allowed the check to come up next to Cuccinelli. I know it happened but can’t figure out why it EVER let me vote Cuccinelli.

          McAuliff won VA by the way and is our governor.

      if it helps you, I signed into my wordpress once and it just kept me signed in. I never sign out I just click on the “x” from CTH to exit CTH but not exit wordpress itself. Perhaps you need to click somewhere that says “keep me signed in” or something to that effect. Is there some box that you need to check or are your settings set to have to sign in each time? Check your preferences on wordpress.

      The only time I had a problem similar to yours is when I signed out of wordpress (not out of CHT but signed out of wordpress all together, Are you logging into wordpress each time you get on your computer — or — do you just stay “signed in?”

    FLASH POLL=> Rubio Drops to 4th Place Following Disastrous Debate

    The poll, conducted by the pro-John Kasich New Day for America Super PAC, shows Rubio plummeting to fourth place in the primary here, with 10 percent of the vote. Most of the polling conducted in the immediate days before the debate showed Rubio in second place.

    The survey, which was based on phone calls to 500 likely voters (margin of error plus or minus 3 percent), was conducted Sunday, the day following the latest Republican debate. Rubio came under scathing attack from Chris Christie, who cast the first term Florida senator as too unready, ambitious, and superficial to occupy the Oval Office.

    Donald Trump holds a wide lead in the survey, receiving 35 percent. He more than doubles runner-up Kasich, who has 15 percent. In third is Jeb Bush, with 13 percent. Behind Rubio in fifth and sixth place, respectively, are Christie and Ted Cruz. Both receive 8 percent.

        I respectfully disagree. Trump does not advance his argument or his cause by calling BO evil as opposed to stupid. Stupid covers everything Trump wants to say. Evil is irrelevant to Trump’s argument AND requires additional time proving, proof which is more complicated than the proof of incompetence.

        By now people have figured out that BO hates America and is actively destroying this country, or they have not. Folks who have it figured out are already voting for Trump, or for Hillary/Sanders (so the latter can continue the destruction).

        Trump is a wise man. For those with ears to hear, he reveals what he really believes. When he says about BO, his incompetence is so bad you have to wonder if something else is going on, Trump means something else is going on (BO’s hatred for America).

        And when he says “we have to look into the hatred causing the “medieval” violence in the world and get to the bottom of it, he means medieval islam’s message of hatred is causing the violence in the world.

        Thus, Trump sidesteps all sorts of shaggy dog narratives which are useless and distracting to a political campaign (like a discussion of mohammedan “theology” better discussed in other contexts).

        A wise man.

    Rubio 13 to 17%
    Kasich 11 to 17%
    Cruz 9 to 16%
    Bush 7 to 13%
    Christie 4 to 6%
    Fiorina 2 to 6%
    Carson 1 to 4%

    Those low numbers for Trump do not agree with the polling company I trust the most. “Rasmussen Reports’ latest weekly Trump Change survey [of 1,000 Likely Voters] finds that most Likely Republican Voters (61%) still believe Trump is likely to be the GOP nominee, but that’s down from a high of 74% a week ago. …. Voters remain pessimistic about America’s future and continue to believe cutting the size of the federal government may help. Just 31% of voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
    Voters still express skepticism about the fairness of elections in this country. Just 21% believe the federal government today has the consent of the governed.”

    I wish Rasmussen showed the polling numbers for the top ten candidates individually.

    I don’t mean to sound like a spoilsport, but based on what I’ve seen on the ground, this poll is not too far off the mark. There is quite a lot of enthusiasm for Kasich and it would not surprise me if he were to get second place in NH. I do think Christie should be a bit higher and Rubio should be lower, but overall this poll is quite reflective of what I’ve seen on the ground for a while now.

    I honestly wouldn’t mind if Kasich & Jeb/Christie were to get 2nd & 3rd place on Tuesday. It would certainly slow the ‘Marcomentum,’ would hurt Cruz and would help Trump. Neither Kasich nor Christie will go on to win other states & I do think that Jeb would not be that difficult to beat. Yes, the deck is stacked in Jeb’s favor, but Trump isn’t going to rollover and let the Bush machine intimidate him.

    Just my two cents.

      Agree NVH The sooner the splitters get out of the human shield position they have taken to protect Bush from too much heat and light, the better Trump can focus the electorate attention on the critical existential problems we are facing and eliminate the
      globalist candidate.

      My brother from Virginia is a volunteer with the Trump campaign there, and drove up to NH to help out in the primaries. He is also observing what you observe about voter preference, although fewer for Kasich and more for Christie. I don’t think Momma Bush helped her little boy out too much — imagine getting your 91 year old mother out in a snow and ice storm because you don’t have the energy or charisma to motivate people. My guess: Trump by double digits, then Christie, Kasich, Jeb!, Cruz, Rubio

          I have said all along that it’s 50/50 whether the Establishment can drag an establishment candidate (Bush, Rubio or Kasich) over the finish line. I have never seen a candidate have so many politicians against him as Trump. Does he have a single endorsement? I got a video yesterday where the Nebraska Senator (can’t remember his name, claims to be a “conservative” is on a “Stop Trump Tour”. That’s how bad it is. Frankly I’d rather vote for a Democrat whom I don’t expect to look out for me than a Republican who is lying and telling me he while at the same time doing everything the Democrat will do. But that’s just me.

    I don’t care what the polls say. People of New Hampshire – get out and vote!!!

    No doubt that Teddy’s dirty tricks stole Iowa but if more had voted it wouldn’t have made enough impact to matter. I have a suspicion that there were some Trump supporters in Iowa who saw Trump leading all the polls by a decent amount and thought, “Well, I don’t need to vote, Trump has got this, he’s going to win anyway. My one vote won’t matter. I’ll just stay in. It’s kind of cold out anyway.” Let Iowa be a lesson to New Hampshire Trumpers – your one vote DOES matter! We love you, New Hampshire, and we’re counting on you!

    I don’t care if we’re leading in the polls by 99 points – don’t believe the polls! You have to vote!!!!

    You don’t sound like a spoil sport to me at all. I can live with a Trump double digit lead, even a small one.
    And I agree about Kasich,Trump and Christie. Let the establishment candidates split their vote for as long as possible. Cruz and Carson as outsiders are the ones take votes away from Trump so if they drop it is good for him. Rubio is now a laughing stock in my opinion so no Boy Wonder to worry about, but never believed the Rubio surge hype anyway.
    Thanks for keeping us posted on the comings and goings in NH over the last little while by the way.

      Huntsman will debut as “an objective reporter”, before becoming a regular panelist, and, eventually, hosting her own show in a highly condescending manner.

      Aside from the fact that you are ignorant of the facts, you are spreading disinformation to Americans who need to learn the truth, unfiltered by ideological bullish*t.

      China is a huge trading nation. They have one million millionaires. They have more billionaires than any nation (or close to it), and they have hundreds of thousands of bright students in colleges and universities all over the West learning Western values.

      They would have no interest in a police state.

      Their relationship with North Korea is actually more distant than with South Korea. The South is another trading nation, has huge investments in China, sends its students to Chinese universities and they operate in the region very intimately.

      China relationship with NK comes from the closeness of the Communist Parties in both nations. Just that link exists. History in the Korean War 1950-53 is a bond between the peoples of both nations. Chinese lost many thousands of soldiers fighting to preserve the North Korean nation. So they spent blood and flesh there.

      Beyond that, China has zero interest in mimicking North Korea.

    Iowa was the practice ground for the future. The Cruz cheating was the work of a single slimmy politician that exploited a situation. The big concern is the Rubio factor in the three counties where there was a major vote shift. You could drive a truck through this manipulation in the counting but it was completely ignored. GOPe success test for phase 1, of change the vote ! There has been little if nothing said about this in the media or other web sites except this one. With Micosoft counting the votes and the chaos at the caucus sites as a cover, it was easy to shift the votes. The test for future fraud was a complete success in Iowa. Now the exact way of rigging the vote will be refined in each state with a combination of computer counting manipulation and false polling data that will set the narrative to provide cover for the deceite. It is happening before our eyes today ! Christie took out Rubio so Jeb could act tough against Trump. This allowed the the uni-party to say Jeb did great. He has found his voice and is surging. The votes will show a huge increase in NH, no win but second or third. Now the Jeb train is rolling and more of the same shanaigans will done will be done in each state by the RINO establishment, until he is the nominee. Each candidate will drop out intern and endorse Jeb along the trail. Also all previous endorsements will switch to Jeb. Under the guise of party unity or pay off for a job in his administration. Come convention time Trump will have 40-45 % of delegates but no majority. No brokered convention needed and Bush wins on the first ballot. Now all is right no need to worry about Hillary and her criminal troubles. A win for the globalists is if either Bush are Clinton are in the Whitehouse. Now this insured even before the Nov election. The computerized counting fraud and poll manipulatation are the giant elephant in the room. Everything else is just a smoke screen. This must be addressed by Trump now just like he called out the donors at the debate . lf this is not done soon all will be lost. But with that said it is still critical all Trump people vote in the primaries at all costs. This will only help to expose this fraud when the time comes. Go Trump give’um hell.

    After the Iowa primary I complained that wikipedia had put Rubio in the second position in their results table even though Trump was the true second place finisher. I see it has since been updated.

    But no such luck with Google. They show Rubio in the second position. Obviously this was purposeful. Psy Ops at work. They probably use alphabetical order as their excuse. (Google “2016 republican primaries” to see what I’m talking about.)

    Don’t have time today to read through all the comments, so apologies if this has already been said: in all probability, all the ballyhoo about how the polls are inaccurate and can’t really predict election outcomes is assbackward–it’s the caucus/primary results that are wrong and cooked. The polls are, depending on the quality of the polling criteria, accurately stating the relative support for the candidates. We saw (and may see more from Iowa if objections by da Bern and Carson, et al. push forward) that the caucuses and primaries are unreliable and rigged. Hopefully, Trump and Carson can come together to coordinate a poll watching campaign in addition to amped up GOTV efforts. This insurgency can’t work entirely undercover or with drive-by voter engagement. It requires overwhelming popular involvement. We have to ram the truth of the polls down the liars’ full throats.
