You can’t slow him down!


Despite recent controversies, Donald Trump is only expanding his big lead after his debate performance.

Real-estate developer Donald Trump doesn't appear to be slowing down as he seeks the Republican presidential nomination in 2016. Two new polls this week have found that the outspoken businessman has only expanded his lead since the first official debate earlier this month.

A CNN/ORC poll released Tuesday placed Trump in the No. 1 position, with 24% support among registered Republicans. That was more than double the 11% support of his next-nearest competitor, former Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida.

Many of the other candidates were clustered close behind Bush: retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson at 9%; Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin at 8%; Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky at 6%; Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, and Gov. John Kasich of Ohio at 5%; and former Gov. Mike Huckabee of Arkansas in 10th place at 4%.

According to CNN, Trump expanded his lead by 6 points since July. That rise suggests Trump's combative performance in the August 6 debate did little to harm his candidacy.

A Fox News poll published Sunday found that, despite dominating the Republican field, Trump was "judged in the poll as having the worst debate performance and being considered the least likable Republican candidate."

During the debate, Trump fielded numerous tough questions, including about his corporate bankruptcies, his threat to run a third-party campaign for president, and derogatory comments he has made about women. In the days after, Trump went to war with Fox News, which hosted the debate, as well as one of its moderators, Megyn Kelly. The network and Trump finally brokered an uneasy truce last week.

But CNN and Fox News weren't the only two outlets with favorable polls for Trump this week. A Morning Consult survey published Monday found the real-estate developer with 32% of the vote among registered Republicans and Republican-leaning independents.
