On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” host Joe Scarborough commented on the recent strength of Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump in recent polling, especially now that he has been on top of most polls for 100 consecutive days.
Scarborough also said Trump is showing strength in early primary states, which are just as important, if not more he argued, than the national polls.
“[D]onald Trump is stronger than ever this week, showing his strongest showing ever in the NBC News-Wall Street Journal poll,” Scarborough said. “And what really matters – the polls that really matter and you talk about it all the time – these early states. How are you doing in Iowa? How are you doing in New Hampshire? I look at Trump’s numbers and I will say – I look at Jeb Bush in third place instead of fifth place that actually matters.”
Scarborough went on to comment Trump’s opponent, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), who has enjoyed some success in national polling. But according to Scarborough, it calls into question which early primary Rubio could win in the GOP nominating contest.
