It found Republican voters, more than two-to-one, now want a candidate from outside the governor. Trump is tied at 23 percent with retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson for the top spot in Iowa. Carson has 22 percent support among those who have made up their mind.
Mr. Trump had a 59 percent/29 percent favorable/unfavorable split – an improvement from what had been a positive 52 percent/35 percent split a month ago and a marked improvement from a negative 20 percent/55 percent split in June. The conventional wisdom immediately following the first Republican debates seemed to be that Donald Trump would sink as his bombastic style would sink most politicians, but Trump has bucked that trend and continues to rise among Republican voters.
However, only 12 percent of likely Republican caucus-goers say they are completely decided on which candidate they will support in February. Trump does slightly better than Carson among those who claim their mind is made up.
Sixty-seven percent of the Republicans surveyed said that the USA needs a president from outside of the government so that he can bring fresh perspective to the White House, while only 26 percent wanted someone with government experience. So if you believe the poll, people still like Walker, but his support has been cut in half. That number may not sound good, but it’s actually an improvement. According to Google Trends, the real estate tycoon is the most-searched candidate in every state except Vermont. None of the remaining candidates, including established political players such as Jeb Bush and Scott Walker, managed to crack the double digits. Walker’s rating is now 64% favorable and 16% unfavorable, compared to 73% and 9% last month.
