Why Poll Numbers Count, Trump Leads, Security Tops Voter Concerns

Every day the 2016 Presidential Election is getting a day closer to fruition. And the key figure (front runner) in that election is multi-billionaire Donald Trump. Poll numbers show how committed voters are trending .

CNN/ORC poll, Dec. 4: DonaldTrump 36%; Ted Cruz 16%; Ben Carson 14%; Marco Rubio 12%; all other candidates > 5% or less. Qunnipiac poll, Dec.2: Trump 27%; Rubio 17%; Carson and Cruz 16%.

Jennifer Agiesta, CNN Polling Director, Dec.4: “The poll reflects Trump’s dominance over the rest of the field on issues voters deem most important to them. He holds massive margins over the rest of the other Republicans as the candidate most trusted to handle the following:

  • Economy 55% which is 46 percentage points over his nearest competitor
  • Federal Budget 51%,up 41 points
  • Illegal immigration 48% up 34 points
  • Foreign policy, 30%, up 13 points

How to Handle Trump?

The Washington Post, Dec. 3: Robert Costa, Philip Rucker report that a seven-page confidential memo issued by the head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee Executive Director, Ward Baker urges Republicans to adopt many of Trump’s tactics, issues and approaches – right down to adjusting the way they dress and how they use twitter…note tough talk about China and ‘grab onto the best elements of (his) anti-Washington populist agenda’…Trump voters see him as authentic, independent, direct and firm – and believe he can’t be bought. That’s Trump lesson #1.

Security at Top of Voter Concerns post San Bernardino Terrorism, Carnage

James Comey, FBI Director, stated Dec. 4 “this was terrorism.”

Immigrants not sufficiently vetted weigh heavily on the minds of voters.

The United States has to get tough with active Islam within the borders of the United States claim Reuters reporters Steve Holland and Erin McPike.

“Speaking to the Republican Jewish Coalition Conference in Washington, D.C., Texas Senator Ted Cruz said President Barack Obama failed to take steps to protect the United States. Most of those seeking the Republican nomination in the November 2016 presidential election planned to address the conference with pro-Israel speeches.

Cruz said the California attack proves the country needs “a war-time president.” Contrary to Democrats, who have called for tougher gun laws to prevent violent attacks, Cruz announced plans to hold a “Second Amendment” event in Iowa on Friday, in reference to the Constitutional right to bear arms.

Presidential Candidate Carly Fiorina in an interview on Fox News, said “Everything points to a terrorist attack, a homegrown terrorist attack” in San Bernardino.

Republican front-runner Donald Trump said the California attack was likely related to what he called “radical Islamic terrorism”

Florida Senator Marco Rubio said the West is waging against radical “apocalyptic Islam…we must not separate the threat to Jerusalem and Tel Aviv from the threat to Paris or London or New York or Miami,”

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham wants to “kill everyone of these bastards that we can find.”

“We stand as one in our common effort to defeat the enemies of civilization,” said Jeb Bush.

George Pataki, former New York governor and long-shot candidate cited other domestic killing sprees as evidence of a warped form of Islam and said free speech rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution do not extend to speeches urging American Muslims to take up arms against other citizens. “We do not have to tolerate that kind of speech in America,” he said. “It is a crime and we must stop it.”
