Jeb Tops GOP Field In New Poll


Jeb Bush has finally taken the lead in the newest CNN/ORC poll that was released on Sunday. The poll found Bush with the support of 23% of Republicans, 10% higher than his nearest rival, New Jersey Governor Chris Cristie.

Physician Ben Carson comes in third, with 7% support, and Sen. Rand Paul and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee are both tied for fourth with 6%.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is still far and away the favorite to take the Democratic nomination for president if she runs, with the support of two-thirds of Democrats polled. Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a liberal favorite, comes in a distant second place with just 9%. – CNN
