Fresh poll shows Trump at new high

Via The New York Times:
Donald J. Trump occupies his strongest position yet in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, yet nearly two-thirds of American voters say they are concerned or frightened about the prospect of a Trump presidency, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News nationwide poll.

The poll was taken largely before his statement on Monday afternoon proposing to temporarily bar Muslims from entering the United States.

The nationwide telephone poll was conducted Dec. 4-8 with 1,053 registered voters, including 431 Republican primary voters and 384 Democratic primary voters. The margin of sampling error is plus or minus 4 percentage points for registered voters and plus or minus 6 percentage points each for Republican and Democratic primary voters.
Though this poll was taken largely before his controversial Muslim comments Monday, polls directly pointed at Trump’s Muslim statement suggest it’s unlikely to hurt his standing in the GOP primary. But as we continue to see, the big question is how Trump would fare in the general election against Hillary Clinton. As hard as it is to believe anyone would choose a known liar, who knowingly endangered our national security, over ANYONE.
