POLL: Donald Trump Jumps 17 Points, Dominates Field Among Likely GOP Voters

surprising new poll by Reuters/Ipsos finds businessman Donald Trump with a commanding lead over his Republican rivals in the 2016 presidential election.

The poll was conducted over the course of five days and included a sample size of 534 Republicans.

According to Reuters, “The pool of likely Republican primary voters was based on sample of 257 voters with a credibility interval of 7 percent.”

According to the poll, Trump leads with 34 percent while Carson finishes a distant second with 20 percent. Marco Rubio is stuck at 10 percent while Jeb Bush is struggling at 4 percent.

This is big change from the Reuters/Ipsos that was released on November 6th. That poll showed Trump and Carson nearly tied with both around 25% of support.

Since then, Trump has hosted Saturday Night Live and a GOP debate was held.
