    New Polls Show Support for Donald Trump Is Holding Steady

    New Polls Show Support for Donald Trump Is Holding Steady

    Despite a debate performance last week that some analysts described as lackluster, Donald J. Trump is holding on to his lead in the field of Republican presidential candidates, according to two polls released on Thursday.

    A survey of registered Republicans by Bloomberg Politics found that Mr. Trump’s support held steady at 21 percent, unchanged from a month ago, while Ben Carson (16 percent) and Carly Fiorina (11 percent) saw big increases. Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor, also saw an uptick, coming in third place with 13 percent.

    The poll represents another indication that Republican voters are craving a political outsider to bring reforms to Washington.

    “At some level, it is a risk to elect a person with no experience in government,” said J. Ann Selzer, who conducted the survey. “Republicans, especially, seem ready to take that risk.”

    On the Democratic side, the dynamics remain less volatile, with Hillary Rodham Clinton garnering support of 33 percent of Democrats, trailed by Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont with 24 percent and Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. with 25 percent. The polls have a margin of error of 5 percentage points.

    A separate poll from Quinnipiac University shows Mrs. Clinton holding a more commanding lead among Democrats. In that national survey she has support of 43 percent of registered or Democratic voters, with Mr. Sanders at 25 percent and Mr. Biden at 18 percent. If Mr. Biden does not run, more of his support will shift to Mrs. Clinton, according to the poll.

    Quinnipiac also finds Mr. Trump retaining his lead, with support of 25 percent of Republicans. Mr. Carson and Mrs. Fiorina follow with 17 percent and 12 percent. The survey found that most thought that Mrs. Fiorina won last week’s debate and that Mr. Trump gave the worst performance.

    In head-to-head matchups, Mrs. Clinton trails Mrs. Fiorina, Mr. Carson and Mr. Bush, while narrowly beating Mr. Trump. Voters continue to have serious questions about the honesty of Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Trump.

    The Quinnipiac poll, which has a margin of error of four percentage points for Republicans and Democrats and three percentage points over all.

    Republicans need to 1. Reach out to independents. It is shocking how low Congress is rated in public approval. This really shows something---- that Americans are flat out disenchanted with both parties. 2. GET OUT THE VOTE. LaRaza is already planning a vote drive, more than one year prior to the election. No doubt all of the others are, and warming up the schoolbuses beforehand! 3. Articulate to the public exactly what the Platform is, and how they have arrived at it. All the other side has to do to win is to keep yapping away and painting the GOP as dastardly villains. Right?

    We lost a gubernatorial election here in 2010 very narrowly----because "Constitutionalists and Libertarians" siphoned off more than enough votes. Of course it would have gone then into recount and who knows what the Dems might have pulled? But as it is, we have had five years of grief and our Governor resigned under scandal and FBI investigation.

    Republicans can win---they just need to motivate their voters to get going----and we know that Dems will be honing their vote getting schemes much more intensely. Also stop the infighting. I am pretty sure Romney would have won in 2006, if the Reps had just worked together. Would have spared us this national tragedy.
