Trump Lead Hits Record In New National Poll; Hillary Slides

Tyler Durden's picture

A new fox poll was released yesterday, and it shows Donald Trump jumping out to a commanding 18 point lead over Ted Cruz in the Republican race for the nomination. As Fox News notes, Trump's best numbers are coming from voters without a college degree (54%), and who describe themselves as "very conservative (50%).

This is a significant boost to the Trump campaign, as just last month he only held a 3 point lead on Cruz.


Trump is also beating out Cruz by a wide margin among voters when asked which Republican has the best chance to beat Hillary, should she win the Democratic nomination.


On the other side of things, the race for the Democratic nomination has significantly tightened. Yesterday's poll showed Hillary Clinton holding a slight 2 point advantage over Bernie Sanders, who has a full head of steam heading into the New York primary. According to Fox, Clinton's support has declined 11 points among women, while support for Sanders is up by 9.

The tide seems to be shifting in the Democratic race, and all eyes will be turned to New York next week as Sanders tries to ride this momentum and somehow achieve the once unthinkable - winning Hillary's "home state."

Trump, our next king.

Colorado backlash, I wonder?  Cruz strikes me as a smarmy douche, and if this is as a result of that fiasco, it is a well earned comeuppance.  That kind of tonedeaf maneuver seems to me to be a perfect character tell.

He reminds me of Richard. Nixon to the letter.  Another lying POS. Even his nose is shaped the same. lol

To be fair, Nixon had more talent.

And yet National Propaganda radio bashed The Trumpmeister unmercifully this morning.


The liberal media is a real trip; how biased and unbalanced can they get?


Americans love Donald esp because he is a no bullshit guy who is self-funded and not a parasite from DC.

Now Loki Jr., how many times have I told you to stop listening to that unicorn-skittle pellet crapping libtard poison, especially in the morning? All it does is make you constipated.

Trump should consider when choosing his VP how likely that VP and his supporters are to try and "move" into the presidency by any means.

Seeing the slimy scheming Cruz has engaged in already disqualifies him.

That is no surprise that National Propaganda Radio and the Propaganda Broadcasting Service bash the crap out of Trump every chance that they get...if he gets in he would probably eliminate their then the slime balls on Capitol Hill would have to justify to the public why they are keeping the propaganda machine funded.  The headline would read something like "Trump Kills Big Bird!"  

It has always been interesting to me that you have these chefs and these kids show creators that make millions of dollars on books, toys, and other schlock that are licensed with their names or characters that they have pushed to people through the propaganda services but they don't have to give any percentage of the revenue back to the Propaganda Broadcasting Service or Propaganda National Radio.  If these broadcasters received 5% of the licensing royalties from Seasame Street over the years they would be self sufficient and would need not Federal money and they also would not have to beg every two weeks with membership drives.  But, the progressives argue that "asking for a cut of the royalties would mean that they would not get any of the wonderful shows that are provided on PBS/NPR"   While we are at it the Trumpmeister should abolish the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Department of Education, Department of Energy, and privatize Amtrak just in his first 100 days.  Then he could start killing off all of the crap that is lurking at the Agency level...stuff like the Rural Electrification Agency.

He can kill off a lot agencies but, please, not the Rural Electrification Agency.

Yea, he is another type of parasite, I'm sure you'll feel the difference if you are lucky enough to live long enough to feel it.

"Liberal" media is a political fiction. If it existed, Sanders would get at least some air time from the MSM, much less some positive reports. He doesn't. The media isn't "liberal," it's War Party. It is enthusiastic over whomever will wage war and feed the complex. That isn't Trump--but it isn't Sanders. The one gets bashed (because you gotta admit, he produces plenty of bash-worthy sound bites.) The other gets ignored. Warmongers get approval and air time. Lately, that's been a lot of Democrats for sure. But the press loved Bush just as much, which is why all those obvious warmonger lies never got called.

There is NOTHING liberal about NPR, ya has to tow the conservative line because of all its Corporate/Wall Street/Big Bank funding

Wow that is a tough one.  I like Trump - he is the only choice.  Oddly, I think I might trust Putin more.

Anyway - I hate that lying, vote denying Cubano See Eye Aye stooge.  Daddy was there in new Orleans in 1963.  After JFK gets murdered - daddy the preacher races to Canada in a panic then comes back to Texas when the Bushes get control? 

WTF!?!  Texas inflicted LBJ, the Bushes and this Cubano shitbag on us!

F*ck Caspar Gomez and F*ck the f*cking Diaz brothers! 

And also F*ck Rafael Eduardo Cruz-Bush!

@ Freddie,

"questions have surfaced about the 1960s activities of Rafael Cruz, Sr., the father of GOP presidential hopeful Rafael Cruz, Jr. (Ted Cruz).
Based on the presence of the elder Cruz, an anti-Castro activist, in Dallas and New Orleans before the November 22, 1963, assassination of President John F. Kennedy, there is a strong reason to believe that Cruz was associated with Central Intelligence Agency’s anti-Castro operations.
Furthermore, a Cuban hired by alleged JFK assassin Lee Harvey Oswald and who bears a striking resemblance to Cruz is seen in an iconic photograph of Oswald and a group of Cubans Oswald hired who were distributing “Hands off Cuba!” pamphlets in New Orleans in the summer of 1963. The photo of Oswald and other Cubans he hired for the Fair Play for Cuba Committee was taken outside the International Trade Mart in New Orleans on August 16, 1963. WMR has been informed by a source that the individual to Oswald’s left is none other than Rafael Cruz. The photograph at the trade mart was favorably compared to a 1954 photograph of Cruz attached to an official Cuban Ministry of Education document."

And he knew Jack Ruby (Rubenstein). Quite a coincidence.

Never know when you'll need a favor.

Comparing a lying shitbag like Ted Cruz to Nixon is a gross insult to Nixon. Richard Nixon was a patriot and a great statesman. His biggest mistake was letting John Dean fuck him royally, and he stepped right into the jaws of the Watergate trap that was carefully laid for him by rats within his own administration. He made a few real mistakes in office, but every president has spots on their record. Nixon was a Congressman, a Senator, a Vice President, and the President of the United States of America, a tremendous force against Communism and a world-class statesman. Ted Cruz is a Cuban-Canadian of rather dubious provenance whose signal accomplishments have been employment as a midlevel bureaucrat in the Bush administration, and four years in the US Senate. Ted Cruz is a product of two divorced parents who married, produced him, and then divorced again; an ideological poser who stands for nothing, he is a slimy little shit, personally disliked by everyone he has ever worked with; and a religious weirdo whose father is an even bigger religious nutjob. He has no hope of winning the nomination, but is gleefully carrying water for the Republican Establishment that he claims to hate solely to thwart the will of the people.

Here's a funny Cruz story which tells you everything you need to know about the guy. When he graduated from Harvard Law School, he interviewed at a big law firm. When some of his classmates, who also interviewed at the firm, learned that Cruz was also a candidate, they told the firm not to bother extending them an offer if they hired Cruz, as they'd simply turn down the offer if that meant having to work with him. They hated the guy that much.

If a human turd could walk and talk, it would look a lot like Ted Cruz.

Damn. Spank my ass and call me sally.

Voting for Cruz is much like trying to pick up a turd by the clean side...

Orc from Mordor's picture

Trying to find something good in American history is quite the same. And you are very good at that picking-up of turd, most of you are even proud of it. Proud of the genocide of many millions of people who belonged to hundreds of various peoples and used to live where you are so proud to live. Judgement day will find each of you motherfuckers.

I suppose I would have that coming if, you know, I was 230 years old... can't you pick a more recent example?  HINT: there are many to choose from.

I would give anything for Republicrats to support Nixon's levels of taxes, social program support. Closest one to Nixon's tax levels is Bernie. Plus Nixon understood the geo-political game much better than ANY of these retards we are offered this time around.

Nixon was a big government guy.  That's patriotic?   Have you read.our founding documents?

"Have you read.our founding documents?"


Fondling documents? Are those the diaries of Bill Cosby?

Nixon was the last President in office who made an honest attempt to slow the growth of the welfare state. He reached across the aisle to Moynihan, and working together, they put together a very smart plan to reform the entitlement system. The bill was shot down in Congress by a strange combination of republicans and ultraliberal democrats and then a few years later, Nixon was driven from office.

Ol tricky Dick also closed the gold window sealing the fate of the dollar and the citizens bound by its issuance and taxation.

To my way of thinking he was just another used car salesman for the MIC and bankers.

The permanent destruction of sound and honest money was not the act of a patriot.

OSHA, EPA, price controls, resupplying The Hex during the Yom Kippur war, gold window already mentioned, Arthur Burns, other than that though...

So every personal story about Cruz is filled with bile and hatred. Then how did he get the fine people of Texas to elect him to the U.S. Senate? It shows once again that people are placed in these positions and the elections are for show. And now this hated douche knuckle is a contender for my presidency. Fuckin' A!

Freddie's picture

Seriously - F Texas!  I get sick of hearing about Liberty Texas BS.

They gave us LBJ, the Connecticut See Eye Aye Bush klan (they keep voting for them!) and this shitbag Canadian Cruz.

They did nothing after Waco 1 and 2.  Texas also gave us a dead LBJ who wanted to end the Fed and the See Eye Aye.

He's a slimy little shit just like LBJ, but lacks that man's political smarts or substantial experience.

Yes.  My mistake.  It should have been dead LBJ.   LBJ should have faced the guilotine.

Former CIA death squad creator and friend of Nazi Klaus Barbi, lieutenant governor David Dewhurst was Cruz's contender (another Bush operative). He actually made Cruz look good!

Look, anyone can get fooled.  Ron Paul supported him strongly in his race for the senate and this was no small aspect of why he won.  He seemed to be a genuine Tea Partier, being one of two senators (Rand Paul) being the other to filabuster the Patriot act renewal as well as a co-sponsor of the FED audit bill.  Tried to shut down the government to stop funding for Obamacare as well as opposing obama's unilateral amnesty program (unlike Rubio).

So, what happened?  He was seduced by the possibility of more power I'm guessing.  The first hint of it was when he missed the audit the FED bill vote to campaign in New Hamshire.  And then he pulled all this crap of stealing delegates and the mask was ripped off.  In total, his positions on the 2d amendment, obamacare, taxes etc. are conservative and in line with other tea partiers and are exactly my positions.  Its his character that is the problem just like the Hildebeast-but without the body count.

The first thing Cruz will do is sign the TPP.  Hillary might wait an extra day to do the same if she wins.
