New Virginia Poll: Trump (41%) Leads Rubio (27%) by 14. Cruz Collapsing With 14%

The Monmouth University Poll was conducted by telephone from February 22 to 24, 2016 after the Trump victories in Nevada and South Carolina so the poll appears to show a lot of momentum for Donald Trump.

Donald Trump dominates the Old Dominion, earning the support of 41% of likely GOP primary
voters there. Marco Rubio is currently in second place at 27%, followed by Ted Cruz (14%), John Kasich
(7%), and Ben Carson (7%).

Trump leads among every demographic:

Male voters give Trump (49%) a strong advantage over Rubio (23%) and Cruz (15%), while
women more narrowly prefer to Trump (33%) to Rubio (30%). Trump leads among nearly every other
demographic group, though, with some of his strongest support coming from voters who have only a high
school education (54%).

An interesting question in this Monmouth poll asked voters to opine on the race if some of the candidates drop out, as many are calling for.

If Carson and Kasich drop out, the poll shows Trump with 42%, Rubio 32% and Cruz with 19%.

If Rubio and Carson drop out Trump would get 45%, Cruz 27%, and Kasich 22%.

Who is most hated, Trump or Cruz?

Well, according to this poll, 26% would be upset if Trump won and 23% would be upset with Cruz winning.

    Donald J. Trump will be a huge upgrade at POTUS, over what we\’ve had the past two decades.

    • George Mansour says:

      Yes agreed.

      If Mr. Trump ONLY fixes the VA Hospitals and Illegal immigration, America will be much improved over the last twenty years of OPEN BORDERS and a WELFARE STATE.

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