  1. Donald Trump's poll numbers collapse

    The Donald went up, and then The Donald melted down.

    In what automated Democratic survey shop Public Policy Polling described as "one of the quickest rises and falls in the history of presidential politics," Donald Trump has plummeted from a field-leading 26 percent in the polls to a mere 8 percent.

    He's now in a fifth-place tie with the man he has often criticized as unelectable, Ron Paul, according to the latest PPP survey out Tuesday. Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney lead the primary pack at 19 percent and 18 percent, respectively, followed by Newt Gingrich at 13 percent and Sarah Palin at 12 percent.

    "As Trump got more and more exposure over the last month Republicans didn't just decide they weren't interested in having him as their nominee — they also decided they flat don't like him," pollster Tom Jensen wrote on the company's blog.

    As the "birther" issue that he championed started fading with the release of President Barack Obama's birth certificate, so did Trump's poll position. Only 34 percent of GOPers still have a favorable opinion of Trump, compared with 53 percent who view him unfavorably, according to the survey.

    The latest poll of 610 Republican primary voters has a sampling error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

  2. Trump picked a fight with Obama and got absolutely destroyed.His reputation is forever ruined.He came out of this fight looking like one of the biggest idiots and racists in the world.Beloved figures like Seinfield,Cosby,Lettermen,Robert Deniro etc all publicly bashed him and the media tore him apart

    Trump should let this season of his show end quietly and stay out of spotlight for awhile
  3. What reputation?

  4. LOL !!!

    Most sane people knew he was a bullshit con artist,but they were a large number of republicans who wanted him to be president.Some like rc822 autaully thought he would win
  5. exactly! he had a reputation for running businesses into the ground. His presidential bid just follows the old pattern. So his reputation only got strengthened. :)
  6. Hello


    Trumps poll numbers collapsed? No big surprise here. Trumps an idiot. It surprised me almost as much as the fact that democrats came out crying "racism" the second that someone took Obama on head on.
  7. Lucrum


    When will the number of new Trump threads collapse?
  8. Hopefully never.

    Trump once led in republican polls to be president.People need to be constantly reminded the intelligence level of republican voters and republicans support for Trump is perfect for that
