Trump Makes Debate Decision From Position of Strength

Donald Trump maintains a dominant lead among Republican primary voters across the nation, with Senator Marco Rubio and Senator Ted Cruz effectively tied for a distant second place, according to a Bloomberg Politics poll released Wednesday.

The poll of 1,020 likely Republican primary voters, conducted online by Purple Strategies from Jan. 22-26, found Trump leading with 34 percent. Rubio grabbed 14 percent and Cruz 12 percent, a 2-point difference that falls within the poll's margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 points. No other candidate registered in double digits.
