GOP hopeful and real estate billionaire Donald Trump has double the support of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and leads the pack by 14 points, according to a new Economist/YouGov poll.

According to the poll, 28 percent of registered Republican voters picked Trump as their first choice, meaning Trump has nearly doubled his support in two weeks.

Only 14 percent chose Bush as their first pick, though The Hill notes it’s expected he will win the nomination.

    Trump, unlike the rest of the Republican deadbeats has NEVER asked me for a dime. That is enough for my support, but I like the fact that he is the only one talking the truth about the illegal invaders and securing the border.

    I was leaning toward the Trump Camp until he recently made comments suggesting he would be willing to provided some sort of amnesty for “good” illegals. There is a report of this on the NumbersUSA website if anyone is interested. Search “trump pro-amnesty?” in the websites search field. I don’t care how much of a goody-two shoes an illegal is; they don’t have the right to jump to the head of the line in front of those who are immigrating legally.

    So far, Rick Santorum and Scott Walker, in that order, have the best stances on illegal immigration issues, with Trump coming in third according to NumbersUSA.

    For those unaware of NumbersUSA; it is an organization whose policy is to inform others about our nations current unsustainable immigration policies, both legal and illegal; it’s impact on our culture, society, environment and resources, and how we can create a unified voice to make those policies sustainable.

    If Bush is the nominee…….I will write in my choice as a protest vote. So will 8 members of my family. Bush is only a democrat in republican clothes. It wouldn’t matter if Hil -liar- y wins. No difference. I absolutely will not mark a Bush on my ballot. Wake up GOP.

    Trump just blew his chances for Presidency by changing his platform on immigration to please the Elite/Corporates. For many this was the only thing they liked about him

    I still find the most remarkable part of this article is where the author caveats the report by almost declaring that no matter the fact that Trump has garnered the surprising lead, the “established” Republican is still going to be the only one allowed to win the nomination. When the press decides how America will vote, it says a lot about what the press thinks of itself, and what it thinks of the American citizen. Since when do the politicians, and the mass media, declare that only they will decide what America thinks and wants?

      Your concern is well placed but it doesn’t go far enough. It’s not the press that decides how America will vote, it’s the billionaires – either working independently or together (as a cabal, perhaps?), that determine what we hear and how we will vote. Courtesy of the Supreme Court and their Citizens United decision. To some extent, we’re all pawns, being manipulated by the small group of unimaginably rich people.
