If the 2016 Presidential Election Was Held Today, Here’s How GOP Contenders Would Fare


These ‘election results’ are based on a voting poll which currently appears on the website Breitbart.com on 8.27.2015.  Interestingly, neither Jeb Bush or Chris Christie got enough votes to even make the top five. Hmmm. Trump’s whopping 38% of votes is decidedly larger than other official media polls and news broadcasts which show him at about 24-28%.


As I was completing this post, the poll statistics on  The Donald jumped once again, and he is now polling at 40%. Here’s related info along with some other interesting poll numbers:
