WASHINGTON D.C. — Donald Trump is yet again on top of the latest national poll of Republican voters, taking his biggest lead in weeks with 32% of support.
And while Trump has spent recent days feuding with Jeb Bush over former President George W. Bush’s legacy on keeping America safe, the former Florida governor is stuck in the single digits with 7%, according to the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll released Wednesday. That puts Bush in fourth place, behind Ben Carson at 22% and Sen. Marco Rubio at 10%.
“He’s way down in the polls, he’s doing very poorly,” Trump said of Bush on Wednesday morning on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “So he has to attack me to try to get his numbers up.”
Close behind Jeb Bush are Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas at 6% and former Fortune 500 CEO Carly Fiorina at 5%.
The poll was conducted October 15-18 and surveyed 364 registered voters who leaned Republican and had a margin of error of plus or minus 6 percentage points.
