Washington (CNN)Donald Trump’s lead over the two other political newcomers in the Republican presidential pack is now at 10 percentage points, a new Suffolk University/USA Today poll shows.
The real estate mogul is the GOP’s front-runner with 23% support nationally. That’s ahead of Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina, who tie for second with 13% backing.
It’s more evidence that Trump has faded a bit from numbers that hovered slightly above 30% before the second Republican presidential debate three weeks ago. Yet he’s still managed to hold a significant lead — particularly over candidates with more political experience.
