Apr 7, 2011  •  Post A Comment

In a national NBC/WSJ poll, Donald Trump was tied for second as the Republican candidate respondents would most like to see on the ballot, reports MSNBC.com.

The poll found that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney was the clear leader, with 21% of Republican primary voters in favor of him. Trump was tied with former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, with both coming in at 17%, the story says.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich received 11% of the Republican voters’ support, while former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin came in at 10%, the article notes.

Trump finished first among Tea Party supporters, with 20% of those respondents in favor of him, while Romney came in at 17% with Tea Party members, the story says.


  1. I think you could put almost any TV personality from FOX News in these surveys and they would score at least 10%. But I don’t think any of them would win an election when serious people vote. These early surveys are more Q-score than serious consideration of candidates.

  2. My Bovine excrement meter just went off scale.
