In a newly-released CNN/ORC national poll conducted among Republican and Republican-leaning voters following last week’s GOP debate, Carly Fiorina has jumped to a 15 percent second-place rank, up from 3 percent in a poll conducted earlier this month. Donald Trump remains the front-runner with 24 percent, an 8 percent drop, while Marco Rubio has also experienced a post-debate bump, now registering 11 percent support and fourth-place status, also up from 3 percent in a previous poll. Ben Carson has dropped five points to 14 percent, still good for third place, and rounding out the sub-10-percent field are, in order, Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul, Chris Christie, and John Kasich. Meanwhile, the struggling Scott Walker has finished his descent to the bottom tier of candidates, registering less than half of one percent. Looking at candidate favorability, the poll showed a 9-percent increase for Fiorina, while Trump dropped six percentage points. Fifty-two percent of respondents picked Fiorina as the winner of the debate.
Mini Mike Bloomberg is playing poker with his foolhardy and unsuspecting Democrat rivals. He says that if he loses (he really means when!) in the primaries, he will spend money helping whoever the Democrat nominee is. By doing this, he figures, they won’t hit him as hard….
….during his hopeless “presidential” campaign. They will remain silent! The fact is, when Mini losses, he will be spending very little of his money on these “clowns” because he will consider himself to be the biggest clown of them all - and he will be right!
