That is among registered voters and the sampling is 427, claiming a 5-point margin of error. Whilst I do not trust polls, I do go by the pols. This weekend they threw the KKK and the Mafia at him, and made fun of his "small hands," which I guess is a slam at his penis. And he is the vulgar one.
They would not be doing this if they had listened to Mickey Kaus 10 years ago.
Kaus is a veteran journalist who segued to the Internet well.
From Mickey Kaus on March 27, 2006:
No Contest: Much is being made, in the press, the blogs, and the email I'm getting, of the split in the Republican party on immigration: there are pro-crackdown conservatives on the one hand, and rich Republican business backers who need immigrant labor on the other. I'm not sure this internal struggle is such a close thing, though, at least this year. Republicans facing the loss of Congress need to mobilize their base, not their lobbyists. They need voters, not money. That points in only one direction, no? Sometime before November, that should become obvious. ... 4:27 P.M.In 10 years, they have learned not one thing. Trump has.
Trump's supporters are incredibly enthusiastic about the coming election, and largely committed in their support for him. Nearly 8 in 10 say that they are more enthusiastic about voting this year than in previous elections, among Republicans who are not supporting Trump, just 39% say they are more enthusiastic than in years past. Likewise, 78% of Trump's backers say they will definitely support him vs. 22% who say they could still change their minds. Among those backing other candidates, 57% say they are committed to their chosen candidate.
The survey asked those Republicans not currently backing Trump whether they would support him if he became the party's nominee, and just a quarter of Republicans overall say they probably or definitely wouldn't support him in November. That's about the same as the share saying they wouldn't back Rubio or Cruz.
Trump is widely viewed as the candidate in the field who would be most effective at solving the country's problems, 51% vs. 17% for Cruz, 13% for Rubio and 10% for Carson, and as being best able to handle the responsibilities of being commander-in-chief, 48% say so, compared with 17% for Cruz and 15% for Rubio. The billionaire is also seen as the one who best understands the problems facing people like you, 46% Trump vs. 18% Cruz and 15% Rubio.And don't kid yourself. Democrats are for this for the same reason: Donors. If Warren Buffett and George Soros said stop it, Democrats would. Maybe they have and this debate is all for show knowing when push comes to shove, like a kidney stone, this will not pass, but pretending it will keeps Hispanic voters in the Democratic camp
At any rate, welcome to Trumpville, Republicans.
Best thing about Donald Trump? He cannot be bought.
Worst thing? He is still Donald Trump.
