Skip to comments.Donald Trump Surges To Commanding Lead In Post-McCain Backlash Poll
Posted on 07/24/2015 1:20:45 PM PDT by Red Steel
While his favorability rating took a hit, a new poll shows that Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trumps comments about Senator Sen. John McCain (R-AZ)s war record are not the silver bullet many in the GOP and media hoped. A YouGov poll taken after Trumps ill-considered remarks show his support among Republican voters has surged by double digits and well-ahead of Scott Walker and Jeb Bush, his two closest competitors.
During the week of July 4-6, Trump was in first place, with 15% choosing the billionaire businessman over the rest of the field. Bush sat at 11%, which tied with Kentucky Senator Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY).
The latest poll was taken between the 18th and 20th. Two of those days occurred after Trumps McCain comments. Regardless, Trump not only held on to first place, he surged to 28% support. Bush came in second with just 14%. Walker came in third with 13%.
Trump is not only in first place, he earns twice the support of second place.
The GOP and the media have done everything in their power to destroy Trump. Hes not only gotten strong, but he is becoming a much better candidate.
Only a snob would underestimate such a man. And now those snobs have cream pie all over their smug faces.

Oh, gosh, it’s worth it just to hear the liberal heads explode.
But the stakes are so high I wonder if they're gonna take that next step.
McDork is slime.
The Vietnamese rued the day when that incompetent officer landed in their prisons....he was doing much more damage to us than to them whilst attempting to play pilot.
And he has been even worse as a senator.
“Senator” - a United States employment job scheme for incompetent idiots who cannot hold a real job in industry.
Call John a turd in the debate and gain another ten points.
Trump totally owning of a MSNBC reporter:
Most amazing take down of the liberal media ever
The GOPe would rather lose with a squishy RINO than win with an outspoken Republican who isn’t afraid of being called names.
Looks like folks were pretty fed up with McCain as well...
funny, these anonymous polls just don’t seem to obey the normal PC rules!
The establishment better find out who’s supporting McCain and out them real quick!
Rush’s analysis is pure gold this week. This is a test of how to push back against the relentless attacks from the media/left/GOPe. The proof is evident...push back twice as hard and win.
So... can we post the word “shit” now?
Trumps up to 28%. Linda is down to 0%. And McCain is just a Zero,
not hero. Oh my.
Online polling...take with grain of salt compared to traditional polling.
Go, Trumo, Go!! Diss the RINOs and make them cry.
Now that's gotta hurt.
Could it be that the typical GOP voter is sick and tired of McCain hiding behind his “war hero” status while back-stabbing his own party?
Not so sure a guy is a war hero just because he is captured, tortured, and forced to sign fake confessions. There are other soldiers and marines who valorously charge into battle and truly are heros.
That speaks for me, at least.
the effete campaign manager class are acting as sycophants to their aristocrat patrons and say “tis nothing to fear mah lord. It will fizzle out and you will rule unimpeded.”
Just Say ‘No’ to Wussy Republicans.
