Carly Fiorina jumps into 2nd place in new CNN GOP presidential poll

in 2017/Top Headlines by

After Carly Fiorina earned nearly universal praise as the big winner of last week’s Republican Presidential debate from the Reagan Library, the big question was whether that praise would translate into a bump in her poll ratings, which have languished in the lower tier this year. The answer to that is a definitive yes. According to a new CNN/ORC poll released Sunday morning, Donald Trump continues to lead the field with 24 percent, but Florina is now in second place with 15 percent. That’s…

The latest Public Policy Poll survey released Tuesday shows that, as is the case in virtually every other poll in the country right now, Donald Trump and Dr. Ben Carson are the top two favorites of Republican presidential primary voters in Florida, more than four months before the first votes start counting. Trump and Carson’s ascendancy is bad news for Florida native sons Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio, who now reside in third and fourth place, respectively in the new…

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

So the field is set for the two GOP debates scheduled for next Wednesday night in Simi Valley — and they’re the exact same lineups as were displayed in Cleveland last month, with two exceptions.

A look at the big GOP post-debate winners and losers

in 2017/Top Headlines by

Carly Fiorina seems to be the biggest winner in polling since the GOP debate last week, says Harry Enten of fivethrityeight.com. “She gained ground in every poll taken after the debate,” he writes. “In five of the seven polls, the gain was six percentage points or more.” Scott Walker was the biggest loser. “This one surprised me a little, but the polling is clear. Walker is the only candidate who lost ground in every single post-debate poll.” Donald Trump gets a…

in 2017/Top Headlines by

“Has ‘The Donald’ Peaked?” That’s the headline of a new national public opinion survey of Republican voters from Rasmussen Reports that was released Tuesday afternoon. The survey shows New York City real estate magnate Donald Trump continues to lead the crowded GOP field of presidential candidates with 17 percent support. That’s a nine-percentage- point drop from a similar poll taken approximately two weeks ago and before last week’s debate, which had Trump up with 26 percent support nationally. The new survey has…

in 2017/Top Headlines by

An online Reuters/Ipso poll of 278 self-identified Republicans taken after last Thursday night’s GOP presidential debate continues to show New York City real estate magnate Donald Trump dominating the GOP presidential field nationally.

Mitch Perry Report for 8.11.15 — Will Rick Perry be the first one off the GOP island?

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

First of all, let me give a public welcome to the newest addition to the Florida Politics/SaintPetersBlog family, James Rosica, late of the Tampa Tribune. I am looking forward to reading his reports. The advent of the super PACS, we’ve been told, will keep presidential candidates around a lot longer than before, since there’s a separate venue for fundraising. The idea is that a few rich millionaires can singlehandedly keep a candidate alive. We’re about to see if that’s going to work…
