Fox News Poll: New high for Trump, new low for Clinton

Source: Fox News

...
Trump receives the backing of 26 percent of self-identified Republican primary voters -- up from 18 percent in mid-July and 11 percent a month ago. That’s not only the highest level of support for Trump, but it’s also the highest any GOP candidate has received since the Fox poll began asking the question in December 2013.

Trump’s rise hasn’t hurt former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who garners 15 percent and is the only other Republican in double-digits. He was at 14 percent in mid-July and 15 percent in June.
...
Another example of GOP primary voters increasingly liking what they hear from Trump: 34 percent say they would “definitely” vote for him, which is more than four times what it was two months ago (8 percent).

And the number who would “never” support Trump dropped 26 percentage points: it was 59 percent in June and 33 percent now. Graham (40 percent), Christie (34 percent) and Pataki (34 percent) now have more voters than the Donald saying they would never vote for them.

Perry is definitely out of the main debate.

1. FOX? The network that went to the Supreme Court to defend its right to publish fiction as news?

4. Yeah, yeah. Only Fox News would report...

Only Fox News would report Trumps 11 point lead over his nearest rival as a "HIGH"

While reporting Clinton's 29 point lead over her nearest rival as a "LOW"

10. Well, it IS a high for Trump, and a low for Clinton.

The poll shoes the best figures Trump has had, and the lowest figures Clinton has had.

6. That sonic boom that everyone heard earlier today was.......

......the heads of Limbaugh, Hannity, Kelly, O'Reilly, et. al. simultaneously exploding when it was revealed by FOX News that Obama's disapproval rating dropped 2 points and is no longer higher than his approval rating.

What is really puzzling is the previous ratings: Approval 47, Disapproval 48, No Opinion 6!!!

Do the math.

8. Hi New DUer - an unsolicited tip-

Fox News is not considered a reputable source around here, and for good reason.

11. Fox news is pretty much the key source for a Fox News poll which is the poll that will define which

troglodytes will be chosen to participate in Thursday's debate.

You may disrespect FauxNews (I do) but what is a better source for news about how the Republicans plan to game their own primary?

13. I'm from Texas. Perry is not a hero of mine. Seeing Perry fail to qualify for the troglodyte debate

brings me happiness.

The two polls which I posted about are two polls which served as the last two nails in Perry's campaign coffin, and they were a joy to post (plus, I do relish seeing Trump rule the Republican primary because it is a bitter crop that the Republican must now reap from the hate-filled seeds they have been planting for many seasons now).

Trump and his lead? And the 2nd from the enemy of Democrats, Fox news.

16. The headlines were about Trump, but these were 2 of the 5 polls that will be used to determine which

candidates qualify for Thursday's debate. there was a 3-way fight for the last 2 spots at the debate, and these 2 polls put Perry out of contention for the last 2 spots. There is 1 more poll coming out tomorrow, but it is pretty much too late for Perry to come back and grab the 10th spot.

18. Fox/Anderson polls are middle of the road performance wise.

 

According to 538 ratings, they are exactly in the middle in terms of predictive power. That is, they are not great, they are not terrible.

They are better than some polls posted here, not as good as others.

21. There were people like him, and we came closer to it than desirable

For example, the Daily Mail were supporting the Nazis and the Blackshirts almost up to the time that war was declared.
