Poll: Trump holds onto big lead

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump held onto his lead in the GOP field, according to the first national poll conducted since the real estate mogul called for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States. A new Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Friday found that Trump’s latest comments haven’t hurt his standing in the polls, as he leads with 35 percent support. Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson sits in second place, with 12 percent, followed by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, both at 10 percent/The Hill. More here.

DFO: It's looking more and more like Trump vs Hillary. If so, I won't be voting for president next year, the first time ever for that. Thoughts?
