  • Trump’s Lead Over GOP Field Is DEFINITELY Shrinking

    Republican presidential candidate Donald’s Trump lead over his Republican primary opponents is shrinking, recent polls show.

    His numbers dropped sharply following the second GOP debate, while Carly Fiorina surged and former Gov. Jeb Bush and Sen. Marco Rubio saw a boost. The gap between Trump and no. 2 Ben Carson has fallen from 16 points before the second debate to an average of just six points.

    Trump’s initial lead on the field increased following the first debate, when he was up about 12 points on Jeb Bush in his national polling average. In a series of eight national polls following the first debate, he led the pack by as many as 16 points, and his lead fell below 10 percent in only one poll.

    “I think I did win the debate,” Trump told Fox News. “Some of the candidates told me I won the debate.”

    He achieved a new high in the one of the last national polls before the second debate, with 33 percent of support, and was up about 10 points on Carson in his national polling average.

    But Fiorina is widely considered the winner of the second debate, and Trump’s lead has fallen below 10 percent in every national poll since. His national polling average fell to 23 points, and in the most recent national poll he is statistically tied with Carson. (RELATED: Trump Falls, Fiorina Surges In New Poll)

    The next debate will air Oct. 28 on CNBC.
