    Minorities line up behind ... Donald Trump

    WND/CLOUT POLLING
    Minorities line up behind ... Donald Trump
    New poll shows billionaire solidifying support
    Published: 15 hours ago

    Editor’s Note: This is another in a series of reports on the polling by Clout Research, a national opinion research firm in Columbus, Ohio, for WND.com.

    Pundits might point to billionaire Donald Trump’s huge lead in the GOP presidential primary race as being the result of his generally anti-Washington, anti-government, anti-establishment, anti-politically correct attitude.

    If so, it’s not just whites who are ticked at the bureaucracy, but minorities too.

    Because a new poll, which still has Trump leading the race, shows 40 percent of blacks are lining up behind Trump, as are 45 percent of Hispanics, and even nearly 19 percent of Asians.

    Blacks and Hispanics, in fact, even support Trump at a higher level than whites.

    The results are from a new WND/Clout poll by Clout Research, a national opinion research firm in Columbus, Ohio. The telephone survey of registered voters was taken Dec. 18-27, except for the holiday, and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.35 percentage points.

    Only Dr. Ben Carson pulled more support from the black community than Trump, at 50 percent, and no one had more support from Hispanics than Trump. Among Asians, 37.5 percent supported Sen. Marco Rubio, with Sen. Ted Cruz matching Trump’s 18.8 percent.

    Among whites, Trump was far and away the leader, with 37.7 percent of the respondents. Cruz was second at 25.1 percent.

    The rankings put Trump in the No. 1 slot, Cruz second at 23.3 percent, Rubio third at 10.1, Carson fourth at 9.4 percent, and Jeb Bush fifth at six percent.

    Explained Fritz Wenzel, chief of Clout Polling, “The Republican presidential primary preference nationally remains unchanged through the Christmas holiday and heading into the New Year, as Donald Trump continues to lead by double digits.

    “The newish development of Sen. Ted Cruz rising and now solidifying his top-tier stature is likely going to remain for the coming weeks before the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary. But the rise of Cruz signals nothing new in this race, as voters continue to voice their complete dissatisfaction with the GOP establishment. Cruz merely supplanted Carson as a more conservative outsider alternative to Trump.”

    He said a key will be whether Republicans, whose divisions have been opened by Trump’s brash criticism of the establishment and refusal to go along, can come together.

    “There really is just one more act to come and question to be answered before the nomination is sealed: ‘Will the establishment coalesce behind one moderate candidate and mount a serious challenge, or will they remain divided and be conquered?’” Wenzel said.

    “For this challenge to develop, three of four candidates – Bush, Rubio, Kasich and Christie – would have to step aside, and given the stakes involved, it is hard to imagine that happening in time to make a difference. The clock has now become a serious factor in this race.”

    He said moderates like Trump, with a sizable chunk also favoring Marco Rubio, while conservatives favor Cruz.

    “Cruz does so badly among moderates that it is hard to make a case for him as the consensus candidate. Trump’s ability at this stage of the game to gain solid support among all demographic groups makes him a significant favorite to win the nomination. It is interesting to note that there is a significant gender gap inside the race for the GOP nomination – as Trump wins only 29 percent support among men but wins 47 percent support among women who will be voting in the GOP primary elections. Among conservative women voting in the GOP primaries, Trump wins 53 percent support,” Wenzel reported.

    The survey shows Trump collecting nearly 40 percent of the GOP support, but also 31 percent of the independents and even 26-plus percent of the Democrats.

    While Ohio Gov. John Kasich gets 31 percent of the Democrats who responded to the poll, most other candidates share tiny fractions. Only Cruz was event close to Trump, with 21 percent of the Democrats, 24 percent of the GOP and 21 percent of the independents.

    It showed Trump dominates among those voters who think of themselves as very liberal or liberal, with 60 percent and 40 percent support, respectively. But he’s no slouch among the moderate and conservatives either, with support higher than 41 percent in each group.

    The rest of the support was splintered among the candidates.

    The question: “If you were voting today in your state’s primary or caucus election for the Republican nomination for president, and the candidates were, in alphabetical order, Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Chris Christie, Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina, John Kasich, Marco Rubio and Donald Trump, for whom would you vote?”

    Among men and women, Trump also had far and away leads, with 30 percent of the men and more than 46 percent of the women. Only Cruz was within sight, with about 23 percent of support from each group.

    Trump dominated, too, among the religious categories, getting 40 percent support from Protestants, 30 percent from Catholics, 40 percent of Jews and more. Trump also dominated among the age groups as well as across all geographic regions in the country

    Everyone but Trump needs to withdraw from the race and hand him the nomination so precious time and money is spent on winning the General. If these other candidates really gave a hoot about our country, they would have already backed out and given Trump the ball.

    Trump's not only the only candidate who can win this election, he's the only one who can and will fix our country, and everyone knows it.

    All these other candidates are doing at this point is wasting money and energy splintering and dividing our party and making it more expensive and harder for Trump for no reason other than stoking their own personal career aspirations. If they cared one hoot about our country, they'd all, every single one of them, announce their withdrawal from the race in their opening remarks at the next debate on January 14, hand Trump the ball and let him run with it.

    Even though these polls must be taken with a grain of salt, I'm certainly glad to see Trump and Cruz distance themselves from the rest of the so-called Republican crowd. Actually, we should all be happy considering Trump finished #1 and Cruz #2 in the ALIPAC poll that was conducted recently. We couldn't have asked for a better scenario than the one playing out right now (IMO).

    This isn't a Hedge Fund. This is the most important Republican primary election since 1860. It's all in to win with the sole purpose of fixing our country. There's only one person in the race who can and will do that. Everyone else needs to get out of the race ... now.

    Ignoring reality for fantasy could blow up in our face. Nope, I'm not taking the bait. Folks can take your advice and load all their eggs in one basket if they so choose, however, with Cruz as a viable option, I will not be one of them. If something were to happen to Trump, I like having a plan "B" readily available. Unfortunately, as we all know, there is no plan "C" option available. I prefer Trump, but can live with Cruz if Trump, for whatever reason, were knocked out of contention.

    This process is determined by the American People, which includes all the candidates. When something as simple as withdrawing from a race that you're not winning, to ensure the front-runner wins now and wins big, why wouldn't these candidates want to join the movement and do that? Why continue a battle of ads and statements that cost money, time and unity and empower the competition in the general election?

    Because their own career aspirations are more important than fixing our country.

    There's a movie based on a true story called Remember The Titans. It's a movie about teamwork, it's a movie about winning and losing, it's about sacrificing your spot on the field and going to the bench so a better player takes your spot to win the state championship, it's about coaches and supporting the right person for the job at the right time even when it means sacrificing your own spot in the Hall of Fame. It's about many of the same good and evil issues, we're dealing with now in the 2016 Presidential Race to save our nation.

    This young team of high school students while dealing with all types of social and political issues of the times, won because they put winning the end game ahead of their own personal aspirations. It would be nice to see the players of the Political Season of the Republican Party deploy this type of character, the same type of character we expect of our people in all walks of life every day, including the military.

    It would be a wonderful thing to see politicians do the right thing, give their donors their money back, stop the battles, end the infighting, take one for our country, and withdraw, so we can all be all-in now to win the decisive battle in November to elect a President we all know can and will win the war to fix our country, save our nation and bring peace on earth.

    Anyone who thinks asking Republican candidates to withdraw from a race they can't and shouldn't win is not a fantasy, it's doing the right thing for our country and citizens.

    The suggestion is now out there. We'll see how many have the character to act on it.

    If Trump were knocked out of the race for some reason, I believe he can. Let's just hope we don't have to find out.
