Billionaire Donald Trump is strengthening its position, five days before the first primary in Iowa. A majority of Republican voters, 56 percent, sees him as the strongest candidate who can win in November. 67 percent think he will win the nomination. In a nationwide poll by CNN Trump reached a record high: 41 percent say he preferred.
While Trump is expanding his lead and increasingly the impression that his victory is inevitable, the billionaire yesterday took a bold step. The real estate magnate decided not to participate in the last Republican debate before the Iowa caucus on Thursday. Trump finds that one of the Fox News debate leaders with whom he has been since august war, MegynKelly, must withdraw. He crashed last year in the first debate a lot with Kelly after she had confronted him with several misogynistic comments from the past. Fox News is refusing to go into Trump's requirement. "She's a third-rate journalist," Trump said at a news conference, after Kelly earlier in a tweet 'biased' had called. "We do not give in to the terror of the Trump campaign," the broadcaster later in a statement. "This debate will continue, with or without Mr. Trump," the presenter in its news There Kelly File. Boycotting Trump is risky. It offers its rivals, particularly Senator Ted Cruz, the chance to cut in on the Republican front-runner right before Iowa. By staying away, Trump does not have the ability to key voter groups such as the believer conservatives in Iowa, to win over an audience of millions. The first debate with Kelly in August was viewed by a record number of viewers, about 24 million.
Trump brimming with confidence through a series of public opinion polls of recent days. The poll by ABC News and the Washington Post showing that Republican voters are deemed inevitable victory, for the first election is a landslide. In November, only 42 percent of those convicted, 25 percent less so. Regarding another weak point that Trump pursued since last year that he cannot win in November a Democrat, has now settled the billionaire. Republican voters think that choosing Cruz or Senator Marco Rubio means the party in November, the White House no longer recaptures the Democrats. From three national surveys also show that the controversial real estate magnate distancing itself from its competitors and does not seem to catch up. His lead varies from 37 percent to even 41 percent. "A new record," Trump commented on Twitter about passing the 40-percent threshold. Extremely distant follow nearest rival Cruz (19) and Rubio by 8 percent. The remainder of the candidates does not come out above 6 percent. In Iowa Trump has an average of several polls now ahead of Cruz of slightly less than 6 percent.
Crucial for Trump is that his supporters would have showed up Monday in Iowa. A substantial portion of its adherents consists primarily of Republicans who have not previously participated in primaries. Various polls show that the gap between Trump and Cruz is much smaller among voters that do the cold braved to vote in the past. The caucus system in Iowa, where voters at meetings in schools, churches and community centers make their choice for the new voters barrier to vote. A good sign for Trump is that it looks for a record number of Republican voters go vote in Iowa. Municipalities are ringing off the hook, according to a report in The New York Times, by voters who ask where they can vote Monday. Trump doing the last days of campaigning in Iowa increasingly called on his supporters to vote.
