Republicans trust Trump on economy, nuclear weapons: Reuters/Ipsos poll


Donald Trump is the Republican candidate most trusted to manage the economy, deal with foreign leaders and serve as commander in chief, according to a new Reuters/Ipsos poll of Republicans conducted after the party’s third debate.
And more Republicans would trust him with the nation’s nuclear weapons than most of the rest of their party’s presidential primary field.
In terms of overall support, Trump was favored by 31 percent of Republicans polled by Reuters/Ipsos in an online survey conducted Oct. 28 to Nov. 2 that had a credibility interval of plus or minus 4.4 percentage points. Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson placed second with 18 percent. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida and former Governor Jeb Bush tied for third place with 10 percent each.
For anyone still confused about why Trump is holding strong onto a double-digit lead in most presidential primary polls, look no farther than at how much Republican voters trust him. The growing trust shows Trump’s campaign message - that his experience in business means voters should pick him to negotiate trade deals or take on Russia’s Vladimir Putin - is resonating.

Another poll another result. One thing Trump has going for him is the fact he understands business unlike many politicians who have spent their career in politics and yet want to play God with the economy. No politician running really has a working relationship with foreign matters which includes Hillary and her little red button. We do know he will support america unlike some who will toe the GOP line or forward the democrat’s goals.

It is still early so as this all shakes out and we reach the point of going to primaries hopefully we will have only those to pick from who will try to reform the country and bring us back from the brink of economic and military collapse.


As has been said, funny how Cruz never moves one way or the other in these polls; especially after his slamming debate performance.

For whatever polls are worth, and I don’t think much, I do think it’s pretty funny that Jeb & Rubio somehow keep managing to tie with one another.

Near forgot to add, Sam, that I wholeheartedly agree w/your assessment on Trump’s business acumen over all the others. Also, his relationships/experience w/foreign leaders.
