Donald Trump Tanks in New GOP Poll

The Donald’s time in the sun may be over: Trump has fallen to 8 percent in Public Policy Polling’s most recent survey, just a month after he led the Republican presidential field with 26 percent. Additionally, 53 percent of GOP voters now say they view him in a negative light, compared to 34 percent who view him favorably. Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney now poll at the top of the GOP race with just about 20 percent each, followed by Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin. Trump and Ron Paul are tied for fifth. The number of GOP “birthers,” meanwhile, has fallen to 34 percent from 51 percent—and even among that smaller group, Trump only polls at 9 percent.
