When it comes to the polls, Donald Trump is the man of the moment. The outspoken presidential aspirant moved to the top of the 2016 Republican presidential field in a CNN poll released on Sunday. A recent Washington Post-ABC News poll found a similar surge for Trump, with the businessman surging into the lead for his party’s nomination. The survey found that he had almost twice the support of his closest rival, just as he ignited a new controversy after making disparaging remarks about Sen. John McCain’s Vietnam War service. Significantly, support for Trump fell sharply on the one night that voters were surveyed by the Washington Post-ABC following those comments.
