Trump laps field in NH Republican Demolition Derby: 24% to 12%

Original post made by Donald, Duck!!, Woodside: Woodside Hills, on Jul 28, 2015

Monmouth University:
One-quarter of likely GOP primary voters in New Hampshire currently support Donald Trump (24%), with Jeb Bush placing second at 12%. Rounding out the top ten are newly announced candidate John Kasich (7%), Scott Walker (7%), Marco Rubio (6%), Ben Carson (5%), Rand Paul (5%), Chris Christie (4%), Carly Fiorina (3%) and Ted Cruz (3%). Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal, and George Pataki each get 2%, while Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, Lindsey Graham, and Jim Gilmore earn 1% or less.

Wash Post: "With the first Republican presidential primary debate only a week and a half away, one can’t help but sense a rising level of fear from the party establishment. And who can blame them? All their primary polls are being led by a buffoonish vulgarian who is not only scorned by strong majorities of Americans, but happens to be setting out to alienate the constituency Republicans most need to court if they’re going to win the White House. The rest of the field is a chaotic mess of 15 other candidates, none of whom has managed to perform up to expectations in any area apart from raising money.

And it could all come to a head next Thursday in Cleveland — or maybe before."

The GOP proudly proclaimed they mandated less debates in the 2016 election cycle, as they perceived in 2012 that the more they debated their ideas, the worse the party performed.

That helps Trump (and Jeb! Bush) and virtually destroys the chances of the lower tier candidates.

Jeb! Bush, who declared his brother was a great president, that Bush was correct in invading Iraq, and that the Bush economy was good for America.

America is best served by more GOP debates, giving the lesser conservatives a chance to air their opinions about Bush and Trump.

What do you think about the GOP debates?

If Trump stays on top in NH after the debate, all-hell will break loose...

Huckabee's full Godwin about the doors of the oven is only the beginning.
