First Post December Debate Poll Shows Trump Gain +8, Cruz +4, Rubio +0

The first poll taken after the December debate on Tuesday 12/15 was produced by PPP December 16-17 2015 and shows Donald Trump was the clear winner gaining +8 points over the previous PPP poll (11/16-17) with Ted Cruz gaining +4.

In the November poll, Trump was at 26% and he now stands at 34%. In November, second place was held by Carson with 19% and he has now fallen to 6%, a steep decline. Cruz has moved from third place in November with 14% to second place now with 18%.

In November, Trump had a +7 advantage over the rest of the field and that lead has expanded to a +16 point lead, more than doubling the lead.

Some interesting results can be found in the cross tabs where Bush’s favorable ratings are upside down with 34% favorable and 49% unfavorable. Also upside down on favorable/unfavorable were Graham (22%-50%), Kasich (26%-40%) and Paul (34%-44%).

Most favorable was Huckabee with 63% followed by Carson at 61%. Cruz bests Trump win favorable by 1 point at 59% with Trump at 58%. Bad news for those not named Trump is that Trump rose from 51% in November to 58% in December. Rubio is at 49% favorable.

Another interesting bit is in a head to head matchup between various candidates,  Trump comes out on top in every instance vs the other candidates. But Cruz is closest losing to Trump 45%-44%. But both Trump and Cruz beat Rubio with Trump 54%-38% vs. Rubio and Cruz besting Rubio 48%-34%.

Banning Muslims from entering the US wins 54% in favor of the ban and 25% against.

46% to 37% support a national database of Muslims in the US.

    I\’ve got some bad news for the Cruz and Rubio fans.
    At the time of our framing, coveture was in full force and effect. So it was the father\’s citizenship which counted. That was the original intent and that original intent remains until Article II,-Section I,-Clause V, is amended pursuant to Art V of the constitution.
    (The Author, Publiushuldah, proposes an amendment stating that both parents, Mother and Father, must be US Citizens at the time of their child\’s birth) for the child to be a\”natural born citizen\” within the meaning of Art.-II, Sec.-1, Cl.-V.

    Ted-Cruz was born Dec.22, 1970, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. His father gave up his Canadian citizenship in 2005 and became a Naturalized U.S. citizen when Ted was 35 years old.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
