Last week, Donald Trump’s haters were stunned when he was named as the frontrunner in the GOP race. These poll results have forced everyone on all sides of the political spectrum to take Trump seriously as a presidential contender in 2016.
After Trump made negative comments about Arizona Senator John McCain this past weekend, however, many predicted that his presidential hopes were dead in the water. Unfortunately for these haters, they turned out to be very wrong.
According to The Political Insider, polls conducted after the McCain controversy have revealed that Trump is further in the lead now than ever before. Despite saying that McCain is not a war hero, Trump still has almost twice as much support as his closest rival, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker.
Trump is still leading the GOP polls with 24% of the vote. Walker is in second with 13%, and Florida Governor Jeb Bush is in third with 12%. The next seven placing are Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.), retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), Sen. Ted Cruz (Tex.), former Texas governor Rick Perry and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
Senator Lindsay Graham, who has been an outspoken critic of Trump, didn’t even make the top 10!
Trump is continuing to come out on top of the polls because of his unapologetic attitude and his willingness to offend people. In today’s overly PC culture, it’s refreshing to someone who isn’t afraid to make some people mad.
