TRUMP Dominates All GOP Polls Ahead on August 6, 2015 Republican Primary Debate

By Susan Duclos - All News PipeLine

With the first Republican primary to be held on August 6, 2015, with great interest by many to see Donald Trump in his first political debate alongside of career politicians, a snapshot from Real Clear Politics taken on August 4, 2015, shown below, shows Trump dominating all GOP polling.

(Full GOP debate schedule shown at the bottom of the article)


Trump at 23.2 percent has an average of a 10.4 percent lead against Jeb Bush who comes in second with just 12.8 percent and Scott Walker takes third place with an average of 10.6 percent. All other candidates hold a sigle digit rating as seen above.

Interestingly, if you remove the NBC/WSJ poll which was conducted at the end of July with no polling done for August at all yet, Trumps average increases to an 11.8 percent lead.
