BILL O'REILLY: A brand new CBS poll says Donald Trump is dominating the Republican field.
He has 35 percent. Ted Cruz – 16. Ben Carson – 13. Marco Rubio – nine. Jeb Bush – three.
In the USA Today poll out this week:
Trump – 27. Cruz – 17. Rubio – 16. Carson – 10. Bush – four.
So there is no question Trump could win the nomination and this Christmas he should send Barack Obama a very nice gift for making that possible.
He should also send cards to many members of the liberal media because it is the Obama-media one-two punch that has propelled Donald Trump to the top of the Republican field.
First, the president.
There is no question many Americans, perhaps most, are angry with Mr. Obama.
He simply will not fight the War on Terror in an effective way and folks feel unsafe.
Also, he continues to allow people to illegally enter America with impunity.
From October 1st to November 30 illegal entries for foreign family units have risen 173% over the same time last year.
The truth is there is no border security.
Just this week another illegal alien criminal, 33-year-old Giomar Diaz, allegedly tried to murder a police officer in New Jersey.
Like the Kate Steinle case, Diaz had been deported to the Dominican Republic and came back.
Yet President Obama and the Democratic Party will not get behind Kate’s Law, which would mandate a five-year federal prison sentence for any criminal alien who defies deportation.
I can't believe the president will not support Kate's Law, and millions of Americans feel the same way.
Mr. Obama does not seem to care about justice or public safety.
Then we have economic insecurity because of the soft economy.
Add it up and there is a furious anger in America.
On the media front, they largely support Mr. Obama's administration.
I mean it is a joke seeing the media demonize Trump while these same people support porous borders and a very soft policy toward the jihadist killers.
So media pundits have lost a huge amount of credibility, and the more they attack Trump the more popular he gets...
Now many of you have seen my interviews with Donald Trump, and you know we challenge him but treat him fairly.
Trump has enough guts to come in here and take the fire – something Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders apparently will not do.
That is a plus for Mr. Trump, as he is perceived as being a standup guy who is not afraid of the media or the politically correct poobahs.
Right now, it is impossible to say whether Donald Trump will get the Republican nomination.
Clearly the GOP establishment does not believe he can defeat Hillary Clinton and therefore does not want him as the standard bearer.
However, Mr. Trump has millions of Americans on his side, as the polls demonstrate.
Again he can thank Barack Obama and the left-wing media for that.
