Donald Trump is still leading in polls conducted in South Carolina and Nevada. According to the recent CNN/ORC Poll released On Oct. 14, voters are seeing Trump as the perfect candidate to deal with the problem in economy and illegal immigration, making him the most vetted candidates among the Republicans.
Thirty-eight percent of Nevada voters favor Trump while Carson came in second with only 22 percent. In South Carolina, Trump got the confidence of 36 percent of voters while Carson got only 18 percent. The candidates in third place in each state got less than 10-percent support.
According to the 67 percent of voters in Nevada, Trump is the best man to handle the economy; 59 percent in South Carolina think so, too. He is also is the man who can deal with illegal immigration: 55 percent of voters in Nevada and 58 percent in South Carolina are confident about his capability.
Among those voters already decided to vote for a candidate, 53 percent supports Trump, 21 percent support Carson while Mark Rubio is far behind at 7 percent. So who has the best chance of winning the general elections in November 2016? Forty-seven percent of voters in Nevada and 44 percent in South Carolina think it’s going to Trump.
Curiously, polling expert Charles Franklin noted an interesting pattern. Trump apparently reflects large numbers in polls conducted with not-live interviews as compared to live interviews. There is a 10-point difference and no other candidate reflected as large of a difference.
