The Trump Train continues to pick up steam, showing no signs of pulling into the train station.
A new Washington Post-ABC poll shows that The Donald has opened an even wider lead. He sits at a comfortable 24 percent, with Scott Walker coming in second with 13 percent.
Support for Trump fell sharply on the one night that voters were surveyed following those comments. Telephone interviewing for the poll began Thursday, and most calls were completed before the news about the remarks was widely reported.
Although the sample size for the final day was small, the decline was statistically significant. Still, it is difficult to predict what could happen to Trump’s support in the coming days and weeks as the controversy plays out.
Not much in the world is able to stop a train, let alone the Trump Train. These next several months will be rather interesting.
