NY Times Poll: Trump Holds Commanding Lead Nationwide

NY Times Poll: Trump Holds Commanding Lead Nationwide
 

By    |   Thursday, 10 December 2015 08:25 AM EST

Donald Trump has a dominating lead of 35 percent in the GOP presidential primary, a new poll shows — outdistancing his closest competitor, Sen. Ted Cruz, by nearly 20 percentage points.

The New York Times/CBS poll
shows, however, nearly two-thirds of all voters say they're concerned or frightened about the prospect of Trump in the White House.

The Times reports its survey was taken most before his controversial statement calling for a temporary ban on Muslims being allowed entry into the country.

Here's the standings in the GOP race:
  • Trump: 35 percent
  • Cruz: 16 percent
  • Retired pediatric neurosurgeon Ben Carson: 13 percent
  • Florida Sen. Marco Rubio: 9 percent
The Times reports the rest of the field stands at 4 percent or less.

The full results of the survey are being released late Thursday afternoon.

According to the survey, 64 percent of Republicans haven't made up their mind about their final choice of candidates, though the majority of Trump supporters say their decision is firm, the Times reports.

Overall, 24 percent of voters expressed concern and 40 percent fear about what Trump would do if elected president.

The figures were far different among Republicans; 24 percent were excited, and 41 percent optimistic about a Trump White House, while a full one-third of Republicans say they're scared or concerned about the prospect, the survey shows.

On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton holds her lead against Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders 52 percent to 32 percent. Only 2 percent support Martin O'Malley.

The margin of error is plus or minus 4 percentage points.
