A new Public Policy Polling national survey finds Donald Trump expanding his lead over the GOP field to 29%, followed by Ben Carson at 15%, Jeb Bush at 9%, Carly Fiorina at 8%, Marco Rubio at 7%, Ted Cruz at 6%, John Kasich at 6%, Mike Huckabee at 5% and Scott Walker at 5%.
Key finding: “The new poll finds that Trump is benefiting from a GOP electorate that thinks Barack Obama is a Muslim and was born in another country, and that immigrant children should be deported. 66% of Trump’s supporters believe that Obama is a Muslim to just 12% that grant he’s a Christian. 61% think Obama was not born in the United States to only 21% who accept that he was. And 63% want to amend the Constitution to eliminate birthright citizenship, to only 20% who want to keep things the way they are.”Save to Favorites
