FOX News Poll: Trump gains, Carson slips, Cruz and Rubio climb in GOP race | Fox News

GOP front-runner Donald Trump widens his lead in the nomination race, while Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz threaten to overtake Ben Carson for the number two spot.

Those four once again constitute the top tier in the latest Fox News national poll on the 2016 election.
In addition, Rubio joins Carson as the only candidates at least half of voters say are honest and trustworthy – though Carson’s honesty rating has taken a hit. More on that later.

First, here’s how the GOP race stands: Trump remains in the top spot with a record 28 percent support from Republican primary voters. He was at 26 percent in the last Fox poll, which was completed before the last debate and the Paris attacks (November 1-3, 2015). Carson drops from 23 percent to 18 percent in the new poll. Cruz and Rubio are both up three points and garner 14 percent each.

It’s looking like the Donald has figured out how to channel Reagan at least in the “Teflon” pejorative the Left used to use; just like nothing stuck to Reagan, it is beginning to look like nothing will stick to the Donald. Whether illegal immigrants, John McCain, the Birther comment, or closing mosques it looks like nothing sticks to the Donald and he is still on a path to nomination.

I’m still for Huckabee, though.

Well, at least the other candidates gave it the old college try I suppose, unless Rubio or maybe Carson can make big gain.

The good news is that there is always 2020. Should give plenty of time for preparations to usurp Hillary then.

[/quote]Trump won’t get the nomination. It’s unthinkable. It’ll come down to Cruz vs. Rubio and Rubio wins. Rubio/Cruz then take on Hillary/Sanders. Rubio/Cruz wins.
