On the economy Trump is at 52 percent favorability. On illegal immigration, Trump is at 49 percent favorability. On foreign policy Trump is at 30 percent favorability. On ISIS? Trump is at 41 percent favorability.
When asked who is most effective at solving the country's problems? Trump comes in at number one at 36 percent. Who has the best chance of winning the general election? Trump is number one at 42 percent.
But then there is this important tidbit: How many voters have definitely decided who they will support in the Iowa Republican caucus? Check it out.
How many voters have definitely decided who they will support in the Iowa Republican caucus?
Definitely decided: 26 percent. Leaning toward someone: 26 percent. Still trying to decide: A whopping 48 percent.
