Liberal California delivered some BIG news about Donald Trump.
This is incredible … nobody saw this coming.
California has never been a favorite state for conservatives. Between Berkley radicals and Hollyweird liberals, it seems like the entire state is covered with leftists. And, with the exception of Ronald Reagan, there are so many RINOs among prominent California conservatives that you would think you were on safari.
Imagine, then, the massive surprise that Donald Trump — arguably the favorite candidate of died-hard conservatives — is leading in the polls in the Golden State. Not only that, but the only other candidate besides Trump polling above 10 percent is another strong conservative, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson.
The poll, which was released on Sunday morning, was conducted by Democratic polling firm Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research and the Republican polling concern American Viewpoint between Aug. 29 and Sept. 8.
It showed Trump ahead of the field with 24 percent of the vote. Second was Carson with a strong 18 percent. No other candidate scored in double digits.
Third was a draw between Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, tied at 6 percent. California native and former Hewlett-Packard CEO, Carly Fiorina and Florida Sen., Marco Rubio were tied at 5 percent in fifth place.
The last time a Republican candidate carried the state of California during the primary season and didn’t win the nomination was 1976, and that, of course, was Ronald Reagan.
