Republican presidential candidate and front runner, Donald Trump just received great and huge news.
According to a new NBC News/Survey Monkey Weekly Election Tracking poll released on Tuesday, conservative businessman Donald J. Trump has been leading the Republican presidential primary by a historic margin for months.
Many polling experts will argue that 50% is the magic number candidates should hit in public polling to determine their strength. When Trump says he’s a “winner, he now has the numbers and delegates to prove it.
Here are the numbers:
-Donald Trump, 48 percent
-Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, 27 percent
-Ohio Gov. John Kasich, 18 percent
More than half of those polled, 58 percent, said they are “absolutely certain” they will vote for the candidate they selected in their state’s primary or caucus in the general election. Another 57 percent believe that Trump should win the nomination should he win a plurality of delegates, even if he fails to capture the majority needed to officially be the GOP nominee.
This poll shows Trump is clearly the winning candidate leading up to the RNC convention in Cleveland, Ohio. Any other outcome of the presidential primary would – at this point – be the establishment stealing the election from Trump.
