Q poll: Donald Trump still leads



A news release:

Vice President Joseph Biden, the Democrat, and Dr. Ben Carson, the Republican, trail in their respective party races for the presidential nomination, but run strongest in general election matchups with other top contenders, according to a Quinnipiac University National poll released today.

Carly Fiorina out-performed Donald Trump in last week's presidential debate, Republican voters say 4-1, but she still trails Trump and Carson in the race for the nomination, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds.

Trump leads the Republican primary pack with 25 percent, followed by 17 percent for Carson, 12 percent for Fiorina, 10 percent for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and 9 percent for U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida. No other candidate tops 7 percent, with 9 percent undecided.

But 29 percent of GOP voters say they "would definitely not support" Trump.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gets 43 percent of Democrats, with 25 percent for U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, 18 percent for Biden and 10 percent undecided.

Only 11 percent of Democrats say they "would definitely not support" Clinton.
