Trump, the Republican nominee for president, is winning by a large margin over Democratic rival Hillary Clinton in the race for the Nov. 8 election, according to a new survey by YouGov and Morning Consult, and his support has been growing throughout the campaign.
He leads Clinton by a wide margin among voters who said they have been paying attention to politics and that they plan to vote.
His support is especially strong among independents and Democrats, two groups that traditionally vote Democratic.
He has also gained in support among younger voters, according for the poll, which was conducted Oct. 24-27 and surveyed 1,935 Americans, including 875 registered voters.
The survey also found that the vast majority of Trump voters, 84%, say that they support the president and the GOP nominee for the presidency.
His favorability rating among those who say they have a favorable opinion of him is the highest of any Republican in the poll.
Nearly eight-in-ten of his voters say they view him favorably, while just 19% view him unfavorably.
But he has a larger favorable rating among independents (84%) than among Democrats (53%).
And just 13% of Republicans say they approve of Trump’s job performance.
*The Washington Post: “Donald Trump’s new campaign manager says his boss has ‘no plans’ to quit” // WaPo // Matt Zapotosky – October 21, 2015 * Donald Trump has yet to announce the formation of a new campaign management team, but his new campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, said on Wednesday that he’s in talks with a number of potential candidates and will announce the names when he does.
Manafort’s comments came at a press conference in Washington, where he was discussing his new role as Trump’s chief strategist, and included the possibility that Trump could seek to run as an independent.
Trump has been an outspoken advocate for his candidacy, but the GOP presidential nominee has struggled to maintain a lead in recent weeks.
During a rally in North Carolina on Tuesday, Trump was asked whether he was going to continue to support his former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, who was fired in February.
“I am going to do what I need to do.
I will do what needs to be done.
Corey Lewandos job was horrible, but I have nothing against Corey Lewandi,” Trump said.
“There are many people that need help, that need support.
I need help.
We need help.”
Manafort, a former campaign adviser to former President George W. Bush, has been Trump’s top adviser for the last six months.
He’s been in his role since the campaign began in June.
“The campaign has always been about the voters, not a political operation.
The Trump campaign is about the people, and the people are the voters,” Manafort said.
Trump’s former campaign chief, Corey Kushner, left the campaign in October.
Manafort, who joined Trump’s team in September, has also worked closely with the Republican National Committee.
The RNC’s political director, Robby Mook, told the Associated Press on Wednesday he has no intention of resigning his post.
Mook told reporters that Manafort has “very strong political instincts.”
“The president-elect is the one that will lead the campaign and I believe he will be a leader,” he said.
The former Trump campaign chairman said that he will also continue to work for the RNC, but that he has not signed a contract with the party.
“We are in conversations with the RNC to determine our future,” Manafort told reporters.
“If we do sign, it would be a very, very significant role for the party.”
Manafort is one of a number who have been pushing the Trump campaign to seek out new supporters and expand its reach in a country where voter registration is low.
The Republican nominee has been criticized for failing to reach out to the party’s most ardent and loyal supporters.
Many Republicans have criticized Trump’s failure to reach beyond his base.
Manafort said in an interview that he thinks that’s because he’s not a “traditional candidate” and that “Trump is not going to be a traditional candidate” as he has in previous campaigns.
Trump is not the first Republican to publicly question the effectiveness of the Trump brand.
The candidate, who has also been criticized by many in the party for his comments on abortion and gun control, recently signed a book deal with Random House.
