HAMDEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Republican front-runner Donald Trump continues to be the choice of a majority of GOP voters, according to a Quinnipiac University poll.
The poll shows Trump with the support of 28-percent of those surveyed, an increase of eight-percent from a poll the university took back in July. The new survey has Ben Carson in second place with 12-percent, followed by Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz with seven-percent. But, the poll could also give the Trump camp some pause, because 36-percent of Republican voters say definitely won’t support the businessman.
On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton continues to lead Bernie Sanders, but her margin has decreased by 10 percentage points since late July, according to the poll. Sanders is now getting the support of 22-percent of Democratic voters, his highest total ever. Clinton is getting support from 45-percent.
