Skip to comments.New [week old] poll shows Trump widening lead after CNN debate (Trump 33% Carson 13%)
Posted on 09/26/2015 3:58:06 PM PDT by Red Steel
A new poll conducted by Zogby Analytics after last weeks Republican presidential debate on CNN shows Donald Trump leading Dr. Ben Carson by 20 points.
According to the survey, conducted September 18-19, made up of 405 likely Republican primary/caucus voters nationwide, Trump garnered the support of 33 percent, which is an increase of 2 percentage points since Zogbys previous poll. Dr. Ben Carson remains in second place, but dropped 3 points to 13 percent.
Former Florida Governor Jeb Bushs support stayed flat at 9 percent, while support for former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina has grown from 2 percent to 7 percent.
The recent Zogby poll is in contrast to a post-debate CNN/ORC poll showing Trump losing support, but still maintaining the top spot in the Republican field. In that survey, Trump garnered 24 percent support, down 8 points from earlier in September. Fiorina skyrocketed from just 3 percent earlier in the month to second place at 15 percent in the CNN/ORC poll. Dr. Ben Carson stands at third place in that poll with 14 percent support among Republicans and Republican-leaning independents.
The latest Zogby poll has a margin or error of 5 points. The CNN/ORC poll has a margin of error of 3 points.
The wishful thinkers are going to deny this.
Yeah. I thought I’d post this post-debate poll since I don’t believe it got much play. Some people may have missed it here, and it goes against the Media’s constructed narratives.
“According to the survey, conducted September 18-19, made up of 405 likely Republican primary/caucus voters nationwide”
That’s the key, likely voters.
I have asked this question of several people but no one has the answer. Did Carson vote for Obama or do we know?
NBC’s post debate poll was similar. But they played up the CNN poll.
Is her 15 minutes up yet?
This poll got huge play. Zogby and his “special sauce” polls used to be impugned and laughed at by Freepers, but with this latest entry, Zogby is the supreme pollster of the moment.
In the meantime, he posted a huge lead in NH (post debate). If Carson and Fiorina were going to show something, it would have been there.
Zogby is a muzzie and a lying push-poller.
He usually has some game he’s playing with the numbers, primarily to benefit his own air time, I think.
I wish it were someone other than him putting up this particular result, but what the hell.
Beats Fox running the Bloomberg Poll all day long even though Fox’s own polls have Trump at much higher numbers.
I just looked and I wouldn’t call 2 article postings of this poll in 6 days getting huge play. Special sauce or not, I’d say the special sauce now goes in the opposite direction giving the media falsified hope.
That’s an excellent question!
What, are you kissing her huge rallies with 20000 attendees?
oops kissing is missing, sorry LOL
They the MSM played up Fiorino
They ain’t covering her I LOVE HILLARY ad
They ain’t scrutinizing her sale of computers to Iran during
They ain’t covering her 41 million dollar golden parachute
They ain’t covering her layoffs at home while sending jobs to china.
They ain’t covering her pro abortion pro amnesty positions.
Does the MSM think they like Rubio can hide a candidates true positions and resume?
Not any longer since we have the internet.
I’ve read iCarly set herself a new world, iCarly record of 200 people!
It is an improvement over her usual crowd of about 20. LoL.
We all have to remember, polls are like noses, everyone has one. I believe that indeed Trump is well out in front of the other wannabe’s but exactly how much will ONLY BE IMPORTANT on two days, when he wins the primary and when he wins the BIG ONE.
NBC News won’t be referencing this poll anytime soon.
This poll will never be mentioned on Fox, it doesn’t match their agenda.
Pray America wakes
Has the presumtive nominee of The Cheap Labor Express, ¡Yeb! The Joyful Amnesty Tortoise, broken single digits yet?
