Donald Trump – 28%

“I’m the King of the Tax Code.”

Those words were uttered by none other than businessman Donald Trump. No doubt the average overtaxed taxpayers were speechless to hear that this man of countless money would be going all out to help them.

He began by calling himself “the king of the tax code.” His principal enemies are the folks at hedge funds. “They don’t really build anything. They shuffle paper, they go back and forth, they live beautifully and so do I and so do you and so do all of us, OK?” Mr. Trump said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” When you pay 14 percent, Joe, I don’t know who you’re talking about—I don’t know any of them that pay 14 percent.” Do you know any “paper shufflers?

Dr. Ben Carson – 12%

Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson has surged to the No. 2 spot in the GOP field, overtaking former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and, combined with front-running businessman Donald Trump, gives outsiders a firm grip atop the Republican presidential race.

However, it’s Mr. Carson’s swelling support that stands out. As of Aug. 27 it’s at 12 percent, while Mr. Bush is tied at 7 percent with Sens. Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio.

John Philip Sousa IV, who is running the 2016 Committee, a super political action committee trying to elect Mr. Carson, said grass –roots work and word of mouth are helping the retired doctor, and he credited thousands of volunteers he said are spreading the word without the sort of fanfare that’s accompanied Mr. Trump’s media-saturated rise.

“They’re quiet, they’re efficient and they get the job done,” he said.

The anger of the GOP primary electorate has been palpable for years, and led to tea party-backed candidates ousting incumbents or party favorites in a series of 2010 and 2012 primaries. Voters also seemed to repel from Mitt Romney.

Ted Cruz – 7%

Ted Cruz spent more than two years using his seat in the U.S. Senate to fight the Republican Establishment on behalf of conservative principles, often enduring the scorn of his own party’s brass.

Donald Trump, the billionaire businessman started a tour bashing the political elite in Washington two months ago. Already, the real estate magnate dwarfs Mr. Cruz in media coverage and presidential polls, even though their messages and issues are nearly identical. Cruz did not attack Trump. Trump and Cruz will be speaking together at a rally within the next few weeks.

Marco Rubio – 7%

Marco Rubio is focusing on our military readiness and China. He wants to increase military spending, end defense sequestration, and restore the Pentagon’s budget.

Rubio attacked China’s protectionist economic and trade policies that hurt the U.S. financially. He said Obama should downgrade, President XI Xingping, the Chinese leader’s upcoming visit to a working visit.

Jeb Bush – 7%

Jeb Bush is attacking Trump in response to Trump’s attacks on him. Three of Bush’s fundraisers have quit his campaign. There is concern about his falling poll numbers.

Hillary, the DNC, and O’Malley

Recent polls describe Hillary Clinton as untrustworthy and a liar. Her poll numbers are declining.

Martin O’Malley chided DNC officials who silenced the party and their ability to respond to Republican candidates. Where are our debates?
