Poll: Fiorina Does Little to Change Cruz’s Support Among GOP

May 3, 2016

For most Republican voters, last week’s announcement by Sen. Ted Cruz that he would pick former Hewlett-Packard executive Carly Fiorina as his running mate would do little to move the needle in the Texas Republican’s favor, according to a new Morning Consult poll.

The survey, conducted from April 29 through May 2, found that Fiorina’s placement on the ticket with Cruz caused 25 percent of Republican voters to say they are more likely to vote for him, while 24 percent said they are less likely to vote for him. About half (51 percent) said they did not know or had no opinion.

Since Fiorina’s favorability was last tested, before she suspended her own presidential campaign in February, very little has changed. According to the most recent survey, 41 percent of Republican voters have a favorable view of her, while 36 percent have an unfavorable view of her. That is up just slightly from February, when her favorability was split evenly at 36 percent.

Despite Cruz’s vice presidential announcement last week, Donald Trump holds a strong lead in the presidential race as voters head to the polls Tuesday in Indiana. If he secures his party’s nomination, the most important thing that Republican voters are looking for in Trump’s running mate is government experience. Among Republican voters, 50 percent said it is important that Trump choose a current or previously elected official.

About one-third of Democratic voters (32 percent), say that if Hillary Clinton is the nominee, it is important that her vice presidential running mate be a woman. About the same percentage of Republicans (28 percent) say that if Trump is the nominee, it is important for his running mate to be a woman.

      I come from your generation, and I think you are crying over imaginary spilled milk.. American has never lost her greatness and thru the years America has no always been perfect but slow but surely the wrongs of the past are corrected as we progress as a country. People like you sit back and whine and see everything wrong and never see anything right with America. Well, I am pushing back on your cry of doom and gloom ! I have always been proud of being an American back when I was 13 and now as I am older.

      obama’s latest speech…. “Obama speech.. the end of the republic”…
      Just google that.

    • kbfallon

      Well Rick–you can live in hope or die in despair…keep your chin up and be happy that you are here to witness the country and our values being turned back to a path of greatness. Trump will get us back on track. My grandfather was killed fighting for this country and I now feel as though his and all others like him were not sacrificed in vain.

    Again! Demonocracy has failed…the polls show just how uninformed and unengaged the electorate is.
