Trump Surges Again: Almost 50 Percent of Republicans Without College Degrees Support Trump

Donald Trump's campaign strategy of unflagging bullying, fear-mongering and lying appears to be paying off. The billionaire real estate mogul once again leads the GOP field by a huge margin, particularly among Republican voters without a college degree. According to a CNN poll released Friday, one out of every three Republican voters supports Trump; 36 percent. Among Republican-leaning voters without a college degree, Trump has 46 percent support. 

Across the board, a majority of Republicans polled said they trusted Trump to address a diversity of issues, from the economy to foreign policy to battling ISIS. 

Ted Cruz comes in at a far second, with 16 percent. Support for Jeb Bush has dropped to three percent.
