Donald Trump Only Republican Candidate Americans Have Heard About
Donald Trump has drawn a lot of attention in a slow-starting race for the GOP nomination. Roughly a quarter of all Americans (26%) name Trump as the possible Republican presidential candidate they have heard most about lately, far more than volunteer any other candidate. Among Republicans, 39% name Trump as most visible - more than all other possible GOP candidates combined.
To be sure, Trump is standing out in a contest that has yet to draw much public interest or media coverage. In fact, about half of all Americans (53%) could not name anyone when asked which GOP candidate they have been hearing the most about.
It's still very early, so it makes sense the one person about whom they've heard anything is the reality teevee character. But is there really anyone else in that field even worth hearing anything about? [Pew via HuffPo]
