‘Cause Bitches Get Stitches: Donald Trump Still in the Lead After Debates

Donald Trump

If Donald Trump’s comments about Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly are hurting his standing in the Republican primary, it’s not showing in the numbers.

According to the latest NBC News Online Poll conducted by SurveyMonkey, Trump is at the top of the list of GOP candidates that Republican primary voters would cast a ballot for if the primary were being held right now.

The overnight poll was conducted for 24 hours from Friday evening into Saturday. During that period, Donald Trump stayed in the headlines due to his negative comments about Kelly and was dis-invited from a major conservative gathering in Atlanta.

None of that stopped Trump from coming in at the top of the poll with 23 percent. Sen. Ted Cruz was next on the list with 13 percent.

During the Fox News debate Thursday evening, Trump was the only Republican candidate to say he would not rule out a run as an independent candidate. According to this poll, that’s just fine with over half of his supporters.

Fifty-four percent of Trump supporters said they would vote for him for president, even if he didn’t win the GOP nomination.

    Trump only punches back; he doesn’t punch first. But he does punch back, and that is a characteristic that conservatives are looking for in a candidate. Also, people see that he is being treated unfairly, so they give him a lot of leeway in how he responds. The media attacks only make him stronger.

      This has really shown me where the actual dividing line is between conservatives enraged at the GOP and those “pragmatists” carrying their water actually is at.
      If you look, it’s pretty easy to tell just whom is bought and paid for.

      • Trump is bursting the PC bubble.

        It is long overdue.

        Go for it Trump.

      The Republican Party has really shot themselves in the foot by letting things over the last 25 years even get to this level.
      Either the man they hate and whom will not do their bidding gets nominated, or his supporters at the very least stay home on Election Day.

      For them, that might be a feature and not a bug as they would prefer Hillary over Trump means they are both merely different sides of the same coin.

    The backlash (a very real one, not the phoney CAIR kind) against Erick Erickson at Red State and Megyn Kelly of Fox has taken me by surprise.

      They beginning to pay off old scores. Once Trump is gone, they can kiss and make up.
