Trump starts to fall

Businessman Donald Trump’s support has fallen following the first Republican presidential debate last week, according to a poll from the right-leaning Rasmussen Reports released Tuesday. The celebrity real estate tycoon is supported by 17 percent of likely GOP primary voters, a 9-point decline from the same national poll conducted in late July.  The poll offers some hope to other candidates, who have sought to climb out from under Trump’s dominating performance in polls heading into last week’s debate.  Trump took the top spot in polls this week in early-voting states, overtaking Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker in an Iowa poll and besting former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush in a New Hampshire survey.  Florida Sen. Marco Rubio has jumped in the Rasmussen poll from 5 percent two weeks ago to 10 percent, tying for second place with Bush, whose support has remained unchanged”.
