Rand Paul Down to 1%
Sad, sad, sad. What could have been, if he stood tough and distanced himself from Mitch McConnell and the establishment, in this era of the anti-establishment candidate. It was a terrible miscalculation by Rand and his campaign---and did a lot to damage libertarian momentum in the country.
This weakness will also make him vulnerable in his bid to be re-elected to the Senate. Most embarrassing, he could very well be beaten by Trump and Cruz in Kentucky in the presidential caucuses that he pushed for so aggressively (and is paying for).
Donald Trump is polling at 36% nationwide with registered Republicans and Republican-leaning independents, according to the latest CNN/ORC Poll.
Trump is followed by Ted Cruz at 16%, Ben Carson at 14% and n. Marco Rubio at 12%.
Jeb Bush is down 5 points to 3% and Rand is down 4 points to 1%.
