Donald Trump is leading the Republican race despite his anti Muslim comments and anti immigration proposals
There are 17 Republican candidates in the run for the nomination of Republican party to face a democratic candidate in the November 2016 presidential elections. But the real contest is among the five candidates to won the nomination. After the first two debates that took place in October and November 2015, Donald Trump is still leading with 34.60% support. Behind him is Senator Ted Cruz from Texas at 12.96%. Third in the race is physician and author Ben Carson on 12.74%. Senator Marco Rubio from Florida is at the forth place with 12.55%. Former Florida governor Jeb Bush a member of Bush dynasty is at fifth place with just 5.16% support. Donald Trump a wealthy businessman and very controvercial figure despite making anti Muslim and anti immigration comments is still republican front runner. His lead actually increased after making proposal to ban all Muslims from entering the US. Although, he is popular with republican voters but nationally he is still far behind and trailing to Hillary Clinton. Hillary clinton will be able to defeat him easily in the presidential election if both get nomination for their respective parties. But it is still a long time to go before the winner will be emerged. Any thing can happen in the coming months to change the whole situation. Some candidates will decide to retire from the camaign and some will be dropped out of the race in the primaries.
