Trump Leads Quinnipiac’s Republican Presidential Nomination

The latest results for Quinnipiac’s Republican presidential nomination are in. Donald Trump led the back by a decent margin and was followed by Ben Carson, while Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, and Ted Cruz were all tied for third.

Which Republican candidate would you vote for?

  • Donald Trump – 28%
  • Ben Carson – 12%
  • Jeb Bush – 7%
  • Marco Rubio – 7%
  • Ted Cruz – 7%
  • Scott Walker – 6%
  • Carly Fiorina – 5%

Trump is still king of the polls and all of the other candidates are struggling to dent him in the standings. His momentum is unparalleled and even his cringe worthy media appearances can do little to slow down the Trump train.

Carson continues to conduct a respectable campaign, but he doesn’t have the same name recognition that Trump enjoys and he is having trouble making inroads to the average American.

Bush’s slump has lasted for too long. His campaign is in danger of becoming irrelevant—if it already hasn’t—if he doesn’t step up and work harder to attract Americans towards his platform. Bush refuses to take a stand on major issues and he frequently dodges the important questions.

The election is Trumps to lose and the only way that he will fall in the standings is if he stops running to be president, something that seems highly unlikely given the level of effort that he has put into campaigning so far.
