The latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal and Fox News polls have things coming up all roses for the conservative wing of the GOP as the anti-establishment candidates and the conservatives continue to trounce the left-wing of the party. Donald Trump continues to hold on to the top spot in the poll, but Dr. Ben Carson is right on his heels. The two have been neck in neck in most of the polling over the last month, and Carson is now closer than ever within 3 points in the NBC/WSJ poll and within 1 in the Fox News poll.
However, this isn’t the news that the GOP establishment will find most surprising. No, the fact that Jeb Bush has fallen out of the Top 4 is what may finally get the establishment worrying. Fox News found that Ted Cruz was now in 3rd place with 10% of the vote, followed closely by Marco Rubio with 9%, and then… Jeb Bush in 5th place with 8%. The only other candidates garnering more than 1% of the vote were Carly Fiorina, Mike Huckabee at 5% each and Rand Paul at 3%.
