Well, this polling (through Monday) is good enough for me, since it comes from Morning Consult, whose self-described original reporting and morning email briefings make it possible for you to know everything you need to know, every day, at the intersection of Wall Street and business strategy, policy and politics.
Friends, we have struck the mother lode of omniscience — Montaigne, R.I.P.
So on to ultimate, or, at minimum, necessary knowledge:
Trump has support from 24 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents..., well ahead of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who finishes with 13 percent of the vote.
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker finishes in third place, at 9 percent, while retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson is the choice of 8 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents. No other candidate tops 5 percent of the vote.
The poll's most delightful finding is that Marco the Magnificent is tied with Ahab Christie, at 5 percent, which is a whole one point ahead of Hapless Huck.
And that's the final word on today's Great Republican Tail-Chase.
