Trump rising in polls since Paris terrorism
Detailed article at The Hill analyzing Trump’s improved polling since the terrorist attacks in Paris.
A Reuters poll on Tuesday asked voters which of the candidates was best-suited to deal with the threat of terrorism. Among Republican voters, 36 percent opted for Trump. The next most popular response was “none,” at 17 percent. Rubio was again in second place in the survey among actual candidates, but he lagged Trump by 20 percentage points.
Strangely, the article failed to see the obvious reasons why Carson’s polling has gone down since the terrorist attacks. No one can imagine mild-mannered Carson being able to stand up to Putin and ISIS.
It is my own personal opinion that Trump is indeed the best person to deal with hostile foreign leaders. He won’t be pushed around, but as revealed at debates, he’s a lot more restrained in foreign policy than other Republicans who say they won’t even talk to Putin and they are eager to put American troops everywhere without a plan for what they are going to do there. On the other hand, Trump’s recent idea about establishing a safe zone in Syria for refuges instead of letting them into the United States is a plan that makes sense.
