Trump at the top of GOP poll

Donald Trump is in first place in a new national GOP primary poll from theEconomist and YouGov. Despite several corporations cuttings ties with the presidential hopeful after inflammatory comments he made about Mexican immigrants, 15% of Republicans who are registered to vote put him as their first choice for presidential candidate. That puts him ahead of Jeb Bush, who got 11% of the vote, and is widely considered to be the frontrunner in the race for theRepublican presidential ticket.  Continue reading Trump at the top of GOP poll
