Trump has 2-1 lead

by Jim Shay  |  published on February 17, 2016

Donald Trump has scored his highest numbers in a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday that found him with a 2-1 lead among Republican voters nationwide, with 39 percent.

He’s followed by Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida with 19 percent and Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas with 18 percent. Ohio Gov. John Kasich has 6 percent with former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Dr. Ben Carson at 4 percent each. Nine percent are undecided.

This compares to the results of a Feb. 5 survey by the independent, Hamden, Conn.-based Quinnipiac University poll, showing Trump with 31 percent, Cruz with 22 percent and Rubio with 19 percent.

In the Democratic race nationwide, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has 44 percent, with Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont at 42 percent, and 11 percent undecided, unchanged from February 5.

The top three Republicans are closely matched in terms of voter opinion as Trump gets a 62 – 31 percent favorability among Republicans, with 64 – 17 percent for Rubio and 62 – 23 percent for Cruz.

    Natural born American citizens do not have a foreigner parent or foreigner parents at their birth, Obama, Rubio, Cruz, and the American people all know they are not natural born American citizens. Cruz, Obama, and Rubio alll have gone as far they can legally go in the federal government.
    Where is Cruzes State Department, Consular Report of Birth Abroad of a Citizen of the United States of America? The form is used for children born of two American citizen parents and children with one American parent. The child born with one American parent is considered a dual national. Cruzes Cuban father and American mother had Canadian citizenship when he was born. Rubio parents were still Cuban citizens when he was born on American soil in Florida-a 14th Amendment Citizen. Obama was born to a British Kenyan citizen father and American mother in Hawaii-a dual national born a 14th Amendment citizen. To be a natural born citizen of the nation and country of one’s mother and father-both parents have to be citizens of that country and nation. Place of birth does not matter. The children of two parents that are citizens of the same country can only inherit the citizenship of his or her parents, no matter where in the world born.
    The RNC knows that Rubio and Cruz are inelgible to be president or vice-president, so does their supporters but they do not care-because if the Democrats and Obama can do it, so can they. The DNC has hired illegal immigrants for salary to work in America’s 2016 presidential election. Trump made the American citizen subversive traitors afraid-he can simply take a pen and strike everything lawless Obama has done down. Then Trump can prosecute Obama, Pelosi, and every Congress since 2008 for allowing the foreigners son Obama to stay in the Whitehouse because of being afraid of being called racist-Obama is not 100% racially Negro either.

    Go Cruz. Just run around Trump with his phoney, lying deals. It always catches up with them.
    Trump seems like those guys just outside the base gate trying to husstle a deal with you. Know what I mean?

  • Upward Trend

    Not true!

  • JIMBO

    Rubio has to go. He is 100% for immigration. Not something we need more of. Cruz and Trump seem to be the only reasonable candidates.

  • NativeCA

    btw I TOTALLY support Donald Trump!!!!!!

  • NativeCA

    Does anyone here look things up on the web? I was researching last night on the Bush Reagan connection because Prescott is a family name in both families. The guy who shot reagan was a family friend of Bush. After reading the unauthorized Bush Family Biography (Grandpa financed HITLER) I thought Bush tried to get in the WH the EASY way.

    • frank_o_anerican

      Roger Stone has a great book out about the Bushes and all the illegal stuff they did. go to WND ( world net daily) to see it. can’t remember the name right now.

    • Upward Trend

      I will not vote for a questionable lying candidate like Trump!!!
      I will Vote Cruz all the way to the WhiteHouse!
      Go Cruz!

      • frank_o_anerican

        Trump is the only one that doesn’t tell lies. Carson is truthful also.

        • Upward Trend

          Wrong again Franky! Trump is not only lying, but he’ deceptive. You know that, right Franki?

  • Seedman

    Donald Juvenile Trump has enough baggage from a lifetime of Democrat
    ideology that it would take a Boeing 757 to lug it around. At 69 plus
    years of age Donald has yet to even vote in a Republican Primary
    Election. In a telling quote from the 2004 Daily News Donald says, “All
    of the women on The Apprentice flirted with me – consciously or
    unconsciously. That’s to be expected.” In his much hyped book Donald
    brags of habitual adultery. This election cycle may be remembered as the
    year of the scam. Ted Cruz on the other hand has the character and
    resolve to be a great president!

    • Ace Dragon

      he does not qualify. just like Obama.

      • Seedman

        The natural born citizen is a smokescreen ruse that Don Juvenile Trump uses to coerce votes. Notice no other candidates stoops to that disgusting level. Mark Levin, a constitutional scholar says Ted is qualified. The recent Washington Post article by a different scholar says the same thing. I have read the constitution and Ted Cruz is indeed qualified. Don Juvenile Trump is fool’s gold, empty promises, changing positions and parties like the wind. Ted Cruz has the intelligence and resolve to make a great two term president, and nominate a worthy successor to the honorable judge Antonin Scalia!

      You mean like the polls in Iowa? Cruz won there! Your polling data is clearly wrong.

      • SABER

        Wow! Get lost you ignorant zombie Cruzbot!

      • frank_o_anerican

        Cruz didn’t win, he stole Carson’s votes. You need to keep up.

        • Upward Trend

          Nope

      • Robert Russell

        Trump polls are higher like 38%.

  • rayhause

    What that should tell us is there are a lot of people who are not only desperate for a fix but can be scammed by a left wing Democrat. One thing we also know is that none of his supporters are TP Conservatives, we do not compromise our principles.

    • JC

      WRONG—-i am and i know a lot of tea party supporters that are for Trump and intend to vote for him—-nice try but it doesn’t work !!!!!

      • rayhause

        Then you are saying that your TP are not conservatives and stand by our initial principles, would that be a safe assumption?

        • Ace Dragon

          tea party all the way!

          • rayhause

            Ace, many of these who are saying the are TP are not as they say. The TP Conservatives had principles and we demanded that of our candidates that we elected, they were verifiable and as Trump has been verified as a liberal. Point is, you can’t be TP and a Trump supporter.

          • frank_o_anerican

            Trump is not a Liberal, I’ve know him since 1988 he was a DEM way back but has been a Republican since 1987 that I know of. We can change you know.

          • Upward Trend

            Trump does not believe in our constitution! He does not believe the Republic is correct. That makes him a fascist. He’s an ego monger. Trump is pretty Liberal.

        • Robert Russell

          I may be a conservative don’t know, just what is a conservative how do i know??? I did belong to the tea party for a few years. Now i am a MR Trump for president.

          • frank_o_anerican

            They keep up with this conservative bit, but no one can tell what it means. every one has their own ideal of what one is. Trump is enough of one for me, he’s the best we have to choose from. He has my vote and respect.

    • I don’t know who you are referring to with the Us, the WE, and the Ours. Is that the Royal WE or do you have excrement in your pocket??
      I have been involved with 3 T Parties for years and know a lot of people who are sick of what we got, and are ready for Trump. People went to T Party because they were tired of business as usual, not because they were republican or even conservative, in the religious sense of the word.
      I just love it when some fool who doesn’t understand how things work tells me that all tea party conservatives read from the same playbook. I am fiscally conservative, that means TRUMP.
      GO TRUMP!!!

      • rayhause

        You obviously must not or those TP’s you’re referencing do not belong to a conservative wing, sounds more like a moderate or independent that is subject to change with the wind.

        • SABER

          You must not have been part of the Tea party for very long for you not to know as it has been comprised of many groups and parties that are fed up with Federal Government. People from Republican, Conservative, Democrat and Libertarian. This is why both the Washington DC Republican GOP and Democrat DNC mainstream are confused by the many different opinions and reactions that come out of the Tea party and they like to lump everyone as whackjob radicals.
          People are all just people first and most want honest government. The Tea party gives all a voice whether they be Republican, Conservative, Independent and Democrat. It does not matter your religion or your race or your gender. We are ALL one voice of the people and all that are disillusioned with Washington Politics desire their voices be heard.

          • rayhause

            I go back to the original TP days and just one of the TP principles are anti Partial Birth Abortion, I’ll not go into all but I will give you more than 10 things that are the foundation to the TP principles. What are you? Should you think that Trump is your answer then must also agree with Hillary because Trump is just as liberal.

          • SABER

            Well then you should know the TEA, in Tea party stood for Taxed Enough Already. I have been in it from the very beginning. Do you even know what the original Site was called or when it started? I do.
            And YES, of course I am against partial birth abortion and many other immoral things I find disgusting.
            I find it strange that legal abortion was never repealed many, many years ago. I guess all of a sudden people seem to care more about it today. The Tea party was and still is a place for people to sound off on todays issues in politics, and staying informed, voting and resources. It is not necessarily for trying to push or sway others’ religious beliefs, even though I have seen this happen quite a number of times. The Tea party is the instrument for the voices of America’s people that are fed up with the corruption they see in the government.
            Trump is not a liberal. He has had liberal positions in the past and he has changed his positions like most do over time. Have you never changed your mind on anything before? I bet you think differently today then when you were 20 years old? I would hope so!
            I have listened to many of his speeches and rallies. I can tell that he speaks from his heart and he has a solid conviction of why he has the positions on the issues today. Body language and tone are great ways to discern if someone is lying or not. Trump truly wants to make America Great AGAIN! This is not about personal gain. He has already said that his children can run his businesses. He wants to fix America and overturn what the left has done to this Country.
            You can believe me or you can reject what I say. Another thing, try reading Trumps old book from 1987, “The Art of the Deal” and then check out his newest book, “Crippled America”. You will learn much about what drives Donald Trump to do what he does. He is a hard worker, a man who truly loves his Country and a true patriot!
            This is the challenge I present to you!

          • Ace Dragon

            do you know how many young girls had baby’s in the 60’s, because of anti abortion? there lives where ruined! i’m 63 and today i know some from the 60’s that there kids are rat basterds.the moms are on drugs, or in a bad relationship. no teen should go through birth until she is over 21.

          • SABER

            I agree. What things ought to be and what they are, are two different things. Its sad that there are too many couples that want to adopt right here in this country but are forced to go overseas to adopt children instead.

          • Ace Dragon

            trump is niether. hes trump!! your iq must be 12!

          • rayhause

            Ace, my IQ is 13 and your’s must be 11.

          • I think you may be on to something, at least in the first half of your statement.
            GO TRUMP!!!

          • rayhause

            You must be one of those cross over Dems that Trump keeps saying he is getting. We have principles in the TP Conservative movement and we do not buy any liberal snake oil.

          • frank_o_anerican

            Booo

        • If you could get your idiotology out of the way for a moment you might notice that in the last paragraph I mentioned that I am FISCALLY CONSERVATIVE. Do the little voices clue you in about who is acceptably conservative and who isn’t?? I suppose in your world only people who agree with you 100% about everything are allowed in your T party. Must be a really exclusive group.
          GO TRUMP!!!

          • Ace Dragon

            narcasist!

      Then you Lose.

    • frank_o_anerican

  • ClarenceDeBarrows

    The political establishment on both sides of the aisle, in conjunction with the main stream media and sleepwalking voters, is doing its best to denigrate and destroy Trump, but to no avail, as informed voters know Trump speaks truth to power, the very thing the establishment cannot abide as exposure, the truth, threatens their corrupt, comfortable grip on power in our Country. They know if the People have their way and Trump is successful in his run for the White House the People win and the corrupt back room deals, in conjunction with the UN, which have been instrumental in enfeebling our Constitutional Republic, rendering us just another participant in the global disaster taking place around us, are subject to exposure and are on the way out. Go Trump!

    • Upward Trend

      You mean the back room “the Art of the Deal” crap we’ll se with Trump in the WhiteHouse. No way Amigo!
      Go Cruz!

      • frank_o_anerican

        Cruz thinks running all his negative ads on Trump will help him, don’t see that it helped him. Trump has twice what Cruz has.

        • Upward Trend

          Wrong again Franki, it’s closer than you think. Of coarse you know that and you would just come right out sell Trump to everyone! You’d lie to make the deal!

        • Upward Trend

          Trump is an angry cry baby!

      • ClarenceDeBarrows

        If you want to call someone “Amigo”, make it Cruz. It would be appropriate with his background. As for me, I’d prefer Patriot, being a native born American Citizen who’s voting for Trump!

  • paulyz

    Trump all the way, only one that knows how to get things done, the others know how to talk!

    • Hgeyer

      He obviously knows how to file bankruptcy! Not sure I could support bankruptcies as a business model…. But I guess that because I have morals.

      • SABER

        Trump never went bankrupt. There are chapters that allow for restructuring. Businesses do this all of the time. Don’t drink the liberal Kool-Aid.
        TRUMP 2016!

        • Hgeyer

          He mismanaged his business’s and put them into massive debt and stuck his investors for billions of dollars!!! FOUR TIMES I guess that’s just what our government does…… I’m kinda thinking that’s one of the thing we need to FIX with our government. He’s hardly the one to do that!

          • SABER

            You must be talking about Atlantic City where everyone was taxed into oblivion by the Blue State of New Jersey. Corporations file for reorganization all of the time to save their businesses from government. Trump never went Bankrupt. This is a misnomer perpetuated by the left.
            Now if we want to discuss some real issues. I think eligibility to be POTUS is a huge problem. We have a foreign born triple citizen and also an anchor baby who want to run this nation. Yet there is nothing NATURAL BORN about these guys. Citizen yes, Natural Born no. Isn’t Obama enough? We didn’t learn and we are going to try to do this again? Really!? ONLY true Natural Born citizens can be POTUS/VPOTUS! I have heard all of the excuses.

          • Upward Trend

            Cruz is Natural Born.

          • frank_o_anerican

            Cruz is Canada born.

          • frank_o_anerican

            You need to know more about what you are talking about before you trash Trump. He has done more for people than anyone that I can think of. Trump could fix the government, He loves America, not like the one we have now.

          • Hgeyer

            Trump’s only love is Trump! The only thing he is interested in “FIXING” is his own pocket book! And YOU just jump right on his bull$hit lies.

          But you are a liberal SABER!

        • Upward Trend

          Yes he did!

        • Upward Trend

          While you drink the Trump kool-aid have you checked out Trumps veterans hotline? It truly pisses me off to NO FREAKING end!!!! It is automated and sends us off to an email that sends an automated freakin’ message. If Trump ever gave a SH$T about veterans, then then phone and email would be manned! What BS you are SPEWiNG all over the place Saber!
          Trump is self serving and full of Bull Sh$T. He started that that when he began to run for President! Why not before then???? Huh. Your out of your FREAKING mind with this Saber!!!

          • SABER

            Get lost downward spiral. You whine more than Cruz himself. Boo-Hoo for you. Cruz is BS and Cruz will lose. Case closed.

      • NativeCA

        he didn’t personally file but just reorganized his business debt my boss did the same thing. not a big deal at all

      • Robert Russell

        So MR Trump filed for bankruptcy but not one person lost money. There are several ways for bankruptcy 11 & 7 you have to look lt up your self???

        • SABER

          Chapter 13 and a couple more. Also a corporation going through the process is not a person going through bankruptcy. A corporation is an entirely separate entity.

          • Upward Trend

            A tidy way to hide mismanagement!

        i got sick and now disabled.i had to file bankrupcy. so your telling me i’m inmorall!! trump is niether

        • Hgeyer

          No! You didn’t get there by mismanaging your businesses ….. You got there because you don’t live in a country that cares about the sick and poor like the rest of the civilized world….. and you would still vote for a republican…… amazing!

          • frank_o_anerican

            You Are SICK!

          • ClarenceDeBarrows

            Are you really as deluded as you sound? Trump got where he is by, “mismanaging” his businesses? He’s a multi billionaire. If that’s mismanaging, our government needs one who mismanages like Trump at the helm to correct the “managing” incompetent politicians have saddled every Citizen of this Country with. Do yourself a favor Hgeyer. Wake Up!

          • Hgeyer

            I think YOU may be the one that needs to wake up!

        • Upward Trend

          Yeah ok. That’s the same.

      • TOM

        Experienced!!!!! That is what we need when this country has to file due to your Obammy’s gross neglect for our financial future, nearly 20 trillion in debt. Keep spending Barack, just look at his budget he submitted to Congress, asshole is unbelieveable!!!!!

      • paulyz

        And Obama certainly knows how to bankrupt our entire Country, only $19 Trillion & growing! What happens when you choose a man with zero work experience or business experience, just a radical, anti-American community organizer. LMAO.

      • ClarenceDeBarrows

        Really, you have morals and you think our Country is solvent not bankrupt? You’re asleep, how can you have morals and vote for the type of people who have put our Country in the miserable financial position it’s in? Vote Trump!
