Look at the latest CNN/ORC poll today. In the past few weeks, Trump has moved twenty points ahead of his nearest competition in the national polls. Yet his national surge is just the tip of the iceberg compared to the trust people have in him to handle the issues most affecting their lives.
As noted by CNN, Trump holds massive margins over other Republicans as the candidate most trusted to handle the economy (at 55%, Trump stands 46 percentage points over his nearest competitor), the federal budget (51%, up 41 points), illegal immigration (48%, up 34 points), ISIS (46%, up 31 points) and foreign policy (30%, up 13 points).
Looking at those Republicans who consider each issue to be "extremely important" to their vote, Trump's standing on each issue is even stronger. Among those Republican voters who call the economy extremely important, for example, 60% say they trust Trump to handle that issue. Among immigration voters, 55% trust Trump on the issue. On foreign policy, Trump inches up to 32%, and among those who call terrorism an extremely important issue, 49% say they trust Trump most on
Ironically, most liberal media refused to headline the massive Trump surged and chose to focus on the candidates whose numbers were far behind the leader.
