The Establishment branch of the Republican Party is in desperation mode right now and is beginning to realize that Jeb is doing it for them. Jeb has moved into 3rd place behind 2nd place Scott Walker.
Donald Trump has taken his biggest lead to date and many are agreeing with the Donald that John McCain is now a war hero but someone who should have been court martialed for aiding the enemy during the Vietnam War.
In a new nationwide poll done by the Washington Post and ABC News, Donald Trump is soaring over his GOP rivals. The poll was conducted amid his “media manipulated” controversial comments about Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) “war hero” status.
According to the just-released poll, Trump — with 24 percent support among likely Republican voters — holds a comfortable, double-digit lead over nearest competitor Scott Walker, who captures 13 percent support.
Jeb Bush, Mike Huckabee, and Sen. Marco Rubio round up the top 5 with 12, 8, and 7 percentage points of support, respectively. Sen. Rand Paul, meanwhile, sits in sixth place with 5 percentage points.
