    Trump Hits Double Digits in GOP Poll

    Reuters

    Republican voters are standing by Donald Trump as the top GOP presidential contender for 2016, according to a new poll published Monday by The Washington Post and ABC News. A new high of 24 percent of registered Republicans and Republican-leaning registered voters surveyed said they would vote for Trump—nearly double the 13 percent runner-up Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker received in the same poll. The last day of the poll coincided with Trump’s incendiary comments that Sen. John McCain is “not a war hero.” It’s unclear if those comments affected his support. Meanwhile, veterans’ groups blasted Trump’s assertion in a USA Today op-ed that he’s a big supporter of veterans. Paul Rieckhoff, founder and chief executive of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, told The New York Times Trump “is not a leader in veterans’ philanthropy, unless he’s donated a lot of money that nobody knows about.”
