Brand New Poll Without Rubio Released… No One Could Have Predicted These Results

By Jack Davis. A new poll of New York State voters has devastated the theory that the demise of Marco Rubio’s candidacy could somehow transform the dynamics of Donald Trump’s dominance in the Republican president contest. In fact, it shows him getting stronger.

A poll by Boston’s Emerson College, taken earlier this week as the Florida senator was fading away, shows Trump with what Emerson College Polling Society adviser Spencer Kimball called a “commanding lead.” New York’s GOP primary is April 19.


Trump polled 64 percent of the support in the poll, 52 points ahead of Sen. Ted Cruz at 12 percent. Rubio, who suspended his campaign Tuesday night, about midway through the polling cycle, received 4 percent support. Ohio Gov. John Kasich only garnered 1 percent support.

“Trump has the highest favorable ratings with GOP voters, 71%/23%, followed by Cruz at 52%/44% and Kasich at 54%/34%,” according to a press release announcing the poll results. “Consistent with other primaries, Trump supporters are the most loyal, with 89% of those who see him favorably planning to cast their ballot for him. In contrast, only 21% of Republicans who have a favorable opinion of Cruz say they will vote for him.”

On the Democratic side, the poll shows Hillary Clinton, a former U.S. Senator from New York, leading Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., 71 percent to 23 percent. (Read more from “Brand New Poll Without Rubio Released… No One Could Have Predicted These Results” HERE)

Trump Still Holds 15-Point Lead Over Cruz

By Rasmussen Reports. Support for all three of the remaining Republican candidates has grown with the narrowing of the field, but Donald Trump still holds a double-digit lead over both his rivals for the GOP presidential nomination.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Republican Primary Voters finds Trump with 43% support to Senator Ted Cruz’s 28% and Ohio Governor John Kasich’s 21%. Just five percent (5%) of GOP voters like some other candidate, and three percent (3%) remain undecided.

In our last survey of the Republican field just after the February 20 South Carolina Primary and Jeb Bush’s departure from the race, Florida Senator Marco Rubio and Dr. Ben Carson were still in the running. At that time, it was Trump 36%, Rubio 21%, Cruz 17%, Kasich 12% and Carson with eight percent (8%) GOP support.

Despite Trump’s wins in most of the state primaries since then, all three of the candidates have experienced similar gains in support, but the billionaire businessman still holds a 15-point lead over his closest rival. Carson has endorsed Trump; the other candidates who have left the race over the past month have not thrown their support to anyone else at this point.

    I keep hearing of the 40 to 60% of Republicans who “will never” vote for Trump … but I haven’t met one yet. I’m in Texas and everybody I talk to is pulling for Trump.

    • RWS

      Texas is exceptional, but so is my northeastern State, where no one says he’d vote for Trump. It would be interesting to hear results from the Midwest and Upper South.

      • Sam Hain

        They’re loyal to Ted. That’s admirable but they’ll vote Trump in November. Once Hill gets out there, they’ll see what the choice really is.

        • KDC

          Sure hope so. This is our last chance.

        • MikefromNC

          Nope.

          Evil A is not an acceptable option to Evil B.

      • leewacker

        Everyone I talk to here in Western Kentucky is for Trump!

    • Craig Kinnowr

      Here in Alaska I am hearing the same thing — people are moving over to the Trump side.

    • CSN

      All of the people I would have voted for have gone out of the race, and guess what???, they went to Trump! Sounds like that’s what most of us will be doing. He’s far from perfect, but not part of the Globalist Agenda, which is why they’re disparaging him so much.

    • ONTIME

      The truth about support will be hard to come by, the MSM, the left and right elites are going nutz but Trump keeps getting better poll numbers in all the states…

    • Flayer

      They are ridiculous. I have nearly as much contempt for them as I do Hillary and the Democrats. You can count me in the #NeverHillary movement, or more precisely, #NeverDemocrat. If only some of these Republicans used half the energy fighting Democrats as they have use fighting TEA Party, Conservatives and Trump.

    • MikefromNC

      Well by all means, allow me to introduce myself…

      • Bill Meeker

        Mike, Betty, Glad to meet you! So if Trump is the Republican nominee, do you guys vote for Hillary or stay home?

        • MikefromNC

          I speak only for myself, so there is no “you guys”.

          I will neither vote for Hillary nor stay home.
          I will vote, and I will cast a vote for President.

          I have struggled with what to do, and as it stands today, I will not vote for Trump. My vote is my endorsement. With McCain and Romney, my endorsement was tepid at best, but by voting for them I agreed to stand behind them.

          For me, an acceptable candidate should bu guided by two documents; the Constitution and the Bible. I have seen no evidence that Trump is even remotely familiar with either one, much less both.

          I continue to struggle and I pray that I don’t actually have to make that decision in November.

          Nice to meet you as well.

    • Betty Clouse

      Same here in Tennessee!!

    • Sam Hain

      Lots of scare tactics being used to put people off Trump. The latest is Eric Ericksen and his gang of stooges having a “meeting” to talk about a third party candidate. The establishment is certainly panicking.

  • liberty49

    The ‘establishment’ RINOs are scared to death of Trump and they are still trying to defeat him and saddle us with another weakling that will lose yet another election to the left.

    • Flayer

      As I heard it put the other day, “The Trump Train has a limited number of seats. They better jump aboard or be left behind.”

    • pFeather

      Why do you ignore the real outsider and anti-establishment candidate, Cruz?

    • j0e cave

      the establishment democrats are just as scared because both parties know that if anyone other than trump is elected they will have business as usual in the district of corruption they will keep their jobs and kickbacks an bribes

  • vaquerobob

    The worthless career RINOs are “delusional” if they think for one minute that We the People will believe, support or abide by ANYTHING they do or say. It’s time for them to SHUT UP, PACK UP and GET OUT!!!

  • Nam1

    The the best thing that can happen for Trump is for the GOP to back Cruz, which would undoubtably push more people towards DT… For Cruz, that would be toxic backing.

  • Daddy Kickass

    –“Screws Cruz”

  • Greg Stoddard

    What would Trump haters do if a unity ticket were to emerge? Trump-Cruz?May not be likely but possible. Never say never?

    • Flayer

      I like them both. On Rush today a lady summed it up exactly: “Trump has the messaging and Cruz knows the Constitution.” If only we could have both I would be happy and between them they’d have 80% of the voters. The establishment, of course, would need IV fluid and sedatives.

      • KDC

        He must not know the Constitution very well, he’s ineligible. Cruz the warrior pitted against the establishment motif is another slick subversion directed at the political elite’s most puissant opposition.

        • Flayer

          I was born overseas to an American father and a mother who was a refugee and “Stateless,” and who was only naturalized the following year. Although I was born overseas and immediately issued an American birth certificate and held an American passport from birth. I did not live permanently in the US until I was 20 when I came to complete college. Hmmm. I guess I’m not eligible but my younger brother is.

      • leewacker

        Yes, and it would be even greater if we could keep Cruz from preaching his “religion” that is so authoritarian—don’t remember the word it comes under, but the man is almost a zealot! Also, he is for NWO, which is a strike against him, he voted for TPP, and would most likely go for amnesty!

        • KDC

          Cruz is a seven mountain dominionist like his insane father who said “my son is anoinTED, to go to war and win and bring back the spoils to the priests.”. the video is on youtube for anyone that actually CARED to see.

          • Richard Long

            I saw it. Big deal. His father is not insane. I don’t agree with that theological tenet, but give me a break, insane, give it a rest! Your own bias might be showing up in your comments. Last election, we had a committed Mormon running, and a quasi Islamist masquerading as a disciple of Rev. Wright, but not really, he just sat there for 20 years, and never listened!? In perspective, Cruz’s father’s faith is small potatoes. and his dad is not running, is he?

        • Flayer

          His religious enthusiasm (or, as you put it, “zealot”) doesn’t bother me (and I’m not Christian). I find it reassuring that he won’t go after my 2nd A rights to not only hold religious views but express them too. And I don’t see his Justice Deparment forcing me to cater a Neo-Nazi event or bake a birthday cake honoring Hitler. I don’t think of him being “authoritarian.” Furthermore I don’t see amnesty coming from him. But he ain’t gonna win this time around. He’s young and has demonstrated an amazing ability to run a campaign. He will be even better and more battle-hardened the next time. I have an admiration for him and will vote for him in the primary, however am perfectly prepared and ok to vote and campaign for Trump in the general. I still would like him as VP. If not then. Attorney General.

          • Richard Long

            Cruz’s faith is a plus, not a negative. We have had 7 years of living under a pro muslim, anti Christian, anti Semitic president. The pendulum needs to swing back the other way before we lose our country.

          • Wayne Langley

            When you say “our country”, who are you referring as to “our”? I live here too. I would like to think it is everybody’s country, not just for white neo-con semi Nazi conservatives.

            Sieg heil………… :^=[

          • Richard Long

            Of course, it is your country too, Wayne. We even have equal opportunity laws for the mentally disabled, like you.

          • Wayne Langley

            Gee, Dick, that’s a low blow. But that’s what you’re known for.

      • Flayer

        Which is why I wish we could have both. I am more concerned by the GOP establishment that is on a mission to give Hillary the nomination. The more they get up to their high jinks the more I feel the need to defend him and dig in my heels FOR him. I’ve never seen so much energy to defeating Democrats as they are putting into getting Trump. Makes me queasy and I’ll NEVER give them a dime. I will only ever contribute and campaign directly for a particular candidate.

        • Richard Long

          I agree with your comment about the GOP establishment, the RINOS. They are all fired up to kill Trump’s candidacy. But they did nothing for us the last 7 years. All talk/no action. No fight, a bunch of pansy waists. Cruz supporters/Trump supporters are both committed and passionate. Much respect for both candidates and both sets of supporters. But the wishy washy sellout Republicans. It is hard for me not to hate them personally, but since I don’t know them, I will just say I hate what they represent. They might as well be Democrats. They are the enemy, not Trump. And if they are successful with burying Trump, they will join forces to beat down Cruz. That much, you can take to the bank, in my opinion. Whether it is valid or not is up to legal scholars, but Cruz’s not being a natural born citizen will be a tool in their arsenal, if and when they need it. And the judicial branch of government is ruled by Obama.

          • Flayer

            He’s more of a citizen than any anchor baby born to illegal trespassers. Trump said he’d have a second look at the Amendment. I am especially hopeful that the phrase “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof…” A child born in the US of Japanese illegals are subject to the jurisdiction of Japan and are entitled to Japanese citizenship. If they are here legally they can choose, but likely we should grant it.

          • Richard Long

            I agree about the anchor babies born to illegal trespassers. Ridiculous situation we find ourselves in, and we are about to lose the country. Illegal Immigration will kill us and kill the republic unless it is reversed. I am old enough to remember when amnesty was granted in the 1980’s, and they were supposed to build the wall then, and the problem was supposed to be fixed. Liars, Scoundrels. This is one of the reasons why people like Trump. They sense somehow he means it, and they know the politicians can’t be trusted, none of them, since Reagan. And they tricked Reagan into amnesty. He was too trusting. He should have dealt with the illegals they way he dealt with the Soviets. I like Ted Cruz, but it is hard for me to trust any politician these days. Ted has judicial experience and commitment to the Constitution on his side. He obviously is a very ambitious man, because he is running for President after one term in the Senate. He has more political experience than Trump, but Trump has more executive and managerial experience. I am just praying that God’s will be done, and that my own steps are directed by the Lord in these grievous days for our country. I do not presume to tell God what His will his in USA politics. I will leave that for those who are more spiritual.

          • Flayer

            Nothing wrong with praying to the Almighty that our country makes the right decision. But G-d only helps those who help themselves. In other words we cannot rely on prayer alone.
            I like both men, They have been tremendously successful in different professions. Some of their skill sets are different. This is why I wish we could have both. They would compliment each other: Trump for his messaging skills and Cruz for his knowledge of the law, government and the Constitution (which he tries to support). I pray that we get a better government but we won’t until we have a better, more moral, population that is allied with our Founding Principles.

          • Wayne Langley

            When you use the word us, who are you referring to exactly? Try not to include the word patriot since that is a crock of s**t!

          • Richard Long

            Don’t know what you are referring to. “When you use the word us”
            I will try real hard to talk about patriotism since it gets under your thin skin so much!

    • MikefromNC

      At that hypothetical point, I would realize that I have seriously misjudged Ted Cruz.
      My loyalty is not to a person, but to principles.

    • Richard Long

      I can still see this happen, if the convention becomes a brokered convention. Unless Trump chooses Carson, way ahead of time. That might not be a good move on Donald’s part, if he does that, but time will tell.

  • CSN

    For the good of the Country, if Cruz would bow out, it would be enough delegates to prevent a contested convention. As it is now, they’re trying to say it is inevitable for a contested convention, because they just don’t want a Trump win….they’re pulling out all of the stops….PRAY!

    • Brian Artzberger

      For the good of the Country vote for Cruz! Cruz is the only constitutional conservative in the race. Cruz is the only one who has gone against the RINO establishment in deed.

      • Sam Hain

        He also voted for massive increases in H1B visas and TPP. Not exactly conservative moves. He now has Neil Bush on his staff and is backed by PAC’s connected to McConnell, Ryan and Boehner..

      • KDC

        Bologna. He is the Estsblishment. Did you not see his voting record, or his involvement in globalist agendas. Every other sentence is a lie. Ted Cruz is a puppet for the New World Order’s UN Agenda 21. Yes, Cruz is pushing the Wildlands Project. From The Marshall Report, “He is coming in through a partial truth – that states want their federal confiscated lands returned. He then is on your side. Then he says – states have to maintain these, and if they can’t, they can sell them. So the land will be sold to foreign entities for minerals and logging, etc. We the people lose our resources and our land. This is all part of the Wildlands Project to aggregate the land into NWO globalists’ hands and steal it from the people.

        • pFeather

          You are insane. Where do you get this drivel? Cruz is hardly a new world order supporter. Cruz is the real outsider and the true anti-establishment candidate. Trump is a con artist and a blowhard.
          Choose Cruz- 2016

      • Richard Long

        Have you considered a little variety in your posts?

    • Sam Hain

      Cruz and Trump should reconcile and partner up.

      • KDC

        Two opposites. I’d rather see Carson/Trump

      • Richard Long

        I actually thought it was headed that direction early in the campaign. Trump/Cruz would be an unbeatable ticket, in my opinion. However, I think Ted got advice along the way, that he could be President if he would take Trump down by becoming the candidate who criticizes Trump for everything instead of being his friendly competitor. Just an opinion, no need to attack me, Cruz and Trump supporters! I love you all!

  • ONTIME

    The political world is about to make changes if we can get thru this election and attain the WH for the R’s but the left is going to inflict any and every kind of damage they can before the campaign and after if the R’s win it all…..

    • leewacker

      To be brutally honest, and, I hope it doesn’t happen, but I would NOT be surprised if there wasn’t an attempt on either Cruz or Trump before the Republican Convention, and maybe BOTH!
      Three guesses who would be behind it, and two don’t count!

      • Richard Long

        I don’t think that is paranoia on your part. This country is on the cusp of a Communist revolution, in my opinion, and when they are this close to achieving their goal, I don’t think they are going to give power up without using every evil tool at their disposal.

  • Flayer

    This is the fight against the TEA Party all over again. They didn’t listen then and they are still not listening. We have to fight a battle with two fronts: the Democrats and the so-called establishment/RINO Republicans.

    • Brian Artzberger

      Cruz is the only candidate with TEA Party values. He is the only constitutional conservative in the race.

      • KDC

        Hate to say it, but most of the reformulated Tea Party Republicans are not the same true conservatives as when they first started. With all their donations, exactly what do you see your money going towards?

        • TJL

          I’d have to agree with you on that one.
          I keep getting political emails from various Tea Party groups, and individuals, and they are split up.
          Some are going for Cruz, but most are for Trump.
          At first they weren’t being honest about their support of Trump.
          They kept sending bad news slamming Cruz and good news praising Trump.
          It was so disingenuous that I have unsubscribed to most of them because they were acting deceitful.
          People need to be honest and say who they support or what they like and dislike and let the process work.
          When Palin supported Trump it became obvious what direction the Tea Party groups were going to primarily go.
          When the primary process is done we will likely be given either Cruz or Trump to vote for in the general.
          Here shortly we will know which one will win the primary, and hopefully those of us on the more conservative side of politics can regroup, and start working together again.
          I can’t wait for that to happen.
          Primaries are really brutal with the infighting, but it is, to some extent necessary… except for the nastiness and when they loose decorum. And, neither Cruz nor Trump are wearing halo’s on that one.

  • Brian Artzberger

    Ted Cruz is the only constitutional conservative in the race. He is the only person running who has fought against the RINO Establishment.

    • Sam Hain

      He also voted for massive increases in H1B visas and TPP. Not exactly conservative moves. He now has Neil Bush on his staff and is backed by PAC’s connected to McConnell, Ryan and Boehner.

    • KDC

      Well, he’s not a christian either, he is a seven mountain dominionist like his insane father who said “my son is anoinTED, to go to war and win and bring back the spoils to the priests.”. the video is on youtube for anyone that actually CARED to see. there are a slight few who don’t care at all that he is ineligible, sent out shame letters, lied about carson dropping out, and helped fast track TPA on TPP for barack obama. facts though, are stubborn things. even his law school
      professor, laurence tribe said he is trying to “slip AROUND the constitution”. that is his greatest lie of all, trying to be POTUS when he may not even be even a us citizen, let alone a natural born citizen!

      • RWS

        KDC, Mr. Cruz is certainly an American citizen. Under the Constitution as it was written (and for generations applied), he is indeed not a “natural born citizen” and could not become president. However, current judicial interpretation well might differ.

        As for his faith, he appears to me to be Christian. About his sectarian beliefs, though, I again know nothing. If he’s nominated, probably all will come clear.

    • leewacker

      YET, he is fully in the NWO camp! He might be against the establishment, but the NWO, and his vote for TPP are strikes against him!

    • Richard Long

      Undeniably true. However, I am very concerned that he does not win many voters in purple and blue states, even in the conservative dominated Republican primaries. I think that might be a clue that he will struggle in the general election. I don’t trust the polls before the Republican nominee is chosen, and the battle begins between Hillary and ?
      Just an opinion- no need to jump on me, Trump and Cruz supporters!

  • Sam Hain

    Trump is really better on immigration. It is a leap of faith given that he hasn’t been in office before and has made some questionable donations and comments about Hill and Bill in the past but he’s a definite outsider. If he does half of what he says he’ll do, he will have been the greatest president since Ike.

  • KDC

    The RINOs want their gravy train. Show up to work once in awhile, free medical which is not Obamacare, that we the people have to take, pensions, and lastly to further their elitist agendas. Trump has shown and exposed their corruption. Just shows these Establishments types cannot be trusted at all.
    Vote Trump for soverignty.

  • pFeather

    I don’t get Trump’s support but with all the anger with the establishment GOP and the contempt for the radical Marxist democrats, maybe it’s understandable. People ignore the anti-establishment candidate Cruz who is the better candidate, which I also don’t understand.
    Choose Cruz- 2016 if you want to win and defeat the Hillary.

  • scxjpfe787

    As the year 2016 ticks on…Donald Trump will win the election for the messed up Republican Party. Why? Because of the last two presidents messed up leadership, or lack there of. Completely understandable outcome. After GWB and BHO, no way in the world of rationale thinking would Cruz even have a chance to win Clinton, let alone Trump.
    Just after reading the low number of Americans who are religious and go to church. Cruz is not going to be appealing to the majority of voters. Trump is the candidate because of the entire societal reality.

  • CSN

    For all of those who do not want a contested convention, you need to go to the RNC website and either call Reince Prebius or email him, or both. Don’t let the RNC pick a candidate to run for President. It’s we the people or bust!

  • Richard Long

    What did Heidi say to Melania? I am so jealous. Your husband has such big hands! and he is such a sniveling coward.
