Trump continues his surge ahead
The latest national poll shows Donald Trump extending his lead over the rest of the GOP field in the race for president.
According to Thursday's Monmouth University poll, support for Trump is now at 30 percent.
Jeb Bush fell four points and Scott Walker is down eight. Gov. Chris Christie remains at 2 percent, which puts him in a tie for ninth place.
In head to head matchups, Trump beats every single candidate running except for Dr. Ben Carson. Neither has ever held elected office.
