Surprise: Trump Now Trails Cruz in National NBC/WSJ Poll Taken After Saturday’s Debate

Feb 18, 2016  •  Post A Comment

Donald Trump has fallen behind fellow GOP presidential contender Ted Cruz nationally, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, AOL News reports.

“In the poll, Cruz is the first choice of 28 percent of Republican primary voters, while Trump gets 26 percent. They’re followed by Marco Rubio at 17 percent, John Kasich at 11 percent, Ben Carson at 10 percent and Jeb Bush at 4 percent,” the story reports.

In a video accompanying the story Trump says about the new poll, “I have never done well in the Wall Street Journal poll. I think someone at the Wall Street Journal doesn’t like me.”

The poll was conducted after Saturday’s GOP debate in South Carolina, and followed a primary victory by Trump in New Hampshire. In a similar poll last month, Trump led Cruz 33% to 20%.


  1. No one likes you. You’re a dumbass.

  2. When one poll says what all the other polls do not say, it’s called an “outlier” — although no one can “outlie” Cruz.

  3. Prediction: Once the Republican Party coalesces behind either Rubio or Cruz, “The Donald” can go back to making the “Best Deals in the History of Mankind” in his real estate business, and once again start hosting “The Biggest Loser”….Whoops…You’re FIRED !! 🙂

  4. Only Rupert Murdoch’s poll shows Cruz ahead of Trump. No further comment necessary. Love your comment Doug, well done.
