A newly released post Republican debate poll conducted by Gravis Marketing is good more good news for the frontrunner at a time when he is enjoying his highest level of support ever. As I previously examined, the poll confirms the night was not a strong showing for the former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.
The survey of 1,641 registered Republican voters conducted directly following the debate found Donald Trump the winner with 35%, while the insurgent Texas Sen. Ted Cruz came in second at 25%. A separate national survey also finds Trump on top with 42% of the primary vote. Cruz also surged to second place with 16% of the vote nationwide.
The post Republican debate poll has a margin of error of ± 2.4% at a 95% confidence level. The total may not round to 100% because of rounding. The polls were conducted using automated telephone calls (IVR technology) and weighted by voting demographics. The poll was conducted for One America News Network.
