Trump drops 12 percentage points in poll

Trump drops 12 percentage points in poll

Donald Trump's support among Republicans has dropped 12 points in less than a week, marking the real estate mogul's biggest decline since he vaulted to the top of the field in July, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll.

Trump was the favorite of 31 percent of Republicans in a rolling poll in the five days ended on Nov. 27. That was down from a peak of 43 percent registered on Nov. 22.

The dip follows criticism of Trump for comments he made in the aftermath of the Nov. 13 Paris attacks that killed 130 people and wounded hundreds more.

Following the attacks, Trump told an NBC News reporter that he would support requiring all Muslims within the United States to be registered to a special database, which his critics have likened to the mandatory registration of Jews in Nazi Germany.

Trump has also been criticized for flailing his arms and distorting his speech as he mocked a New York Times reporter, Serge Kovaleski, who is disabled.

Trump mocked the reporter as he defended his unsubstantiated assertion that during the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the United States, he watched on television as "thousands and thousands" of people in New Jersey cheered while the World Trade Center fell.

Not surprised I sure hope people start to wake up about Trump, there are better people to pick from.. I wish Perry was still in it but we will see.

I am not rooting for Trump to win, but I understand why he is
so popular: He is saying all the right things, and he is not backing down.
He is acting like a leader, something that few GOP candidates are willing to do.

Right now, I am hoping Cruz can pull it off, but if Trump, Jeb, Lindsay
Grahamnisty, or even Mickey Mouse becomes the nominee, I will vote for that
person! The stakes in this election are too great to make the mistakes
we made in 1992, 1996, 2008 and 2012..

We would have had a communist free White House from 1980 to present if we had not
made serious mistakes; First, disaffected GOP voters fell for a false populist.
Then, we blew two more elections because single issue voters in our party threw
two elections to Obongo by sitting out 08 and 12.

Keeping that lesbian in the Mao Jacket out of the White House should be
far more important than sitting out the game because our guy did not make
the team! Even with a majority in both houses, we are 1 or 2 Supreme Court
appointments away from the stacked court FDR lusted after back in the thirties.

An activist court can can make all the leftist wet-dreams come true and do
more damage than Carter, Clinton and Obozo combined. If you don't like the
nominee, hold your nose at the ballot box!
