Last week was the first Republican debate, and the polls revealed that most Americans believe that Trump won by a landslide. However, after Trump’s campaign was hit with “bloodgate” over the weekend, many wondered if this was the end of Trump.

Luckily, the polls reveal that the scandal has not negatively affected Trump in any way.

According to Breitbart, Trump is at an all-time high of 32% in the polls today. Not only that, he leads the next three candidates – former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Dr. Ben Carson and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) – by all of their scores combined. 

Bush is currently in second with 11% while Carson is in third with 9%. Walker and Rubio are each at 6%, meaning the four of them combined add up to Trump’s 32%.

This poll was conducted by Morning Consult from Friday through Sunday, meaning it was being done during the height of bloodgate. Despite this, Trump went up seven points from Morning Consult’s poll last week, when he was at 25%.

“Trump’s support shows no evidence of slipping after he told a CNN anchor on Friday night that Kelly, one of three moderators overseeing the Fox News debate, had ‘blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever,’” Morning Consult’s Reid Wilson wrote about the poll.

“The share of Republican primary voters who say they view Trump favorably increased since the last tracking poll, to 62 percent from 57 percent,” Wilson continued. “But the number of registered voters who say they see Trump unfavorably remains high — 52 percent of all voters say they see him in a negative light. That makes Trump both the most popular candidate within the Republican field and the least popular candidate Republicans could nominate for next year’s general election.”
