Trump leads the pack. Steve Benen at MSNBC/Rachel Maddow Show reviews the latest polls.
Trailing Trump’s 18% support is Scott Walker, who’s in second with 15%, and Jeb Bush with 14%. No other candidate reached double digits in the Fox poll.
And in this specific poll, that’s not all. Consider this question Fox asked respondents:
"Recently, presidential candidate Donald Trump called for a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. He said Mexico is quote, ‘sending people that have lots of problems…. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.’ Setting aside how Trump worded his comments, do you think he’s basically right on this, or not?"
A total of 70% of Republican voters said they believe Trump’s racially charged rhetoric is correct. That’s not a typo – seven in 10.
There are some ugly attitudes that have pushed Trump to the top of the crowded GOP field, and Republican officials have to come to terms with that.
Why should they? The GOP propaganda machine has manufactured deceptions and lies for years and now "Republican officials" should fear the Nazification of their party? It's already happened and they are along for the ride.
