    NBC poll surprise: Donald Trump tied for second in GOP field

    Make way for The Donald.

    Donald Trump is a force to be reckoned with on the national political stage, according to a new poll on Wednesday night.

    The NBC/Wall Street Journal poll shows Trump tied for second place with Mike Huckabee, both at 17 percent, and leading the GOP pack among Tea Party supporters.

    Mitt Romney is the frontrunner with the support of 21 percent of Republican primary voters.

    Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin trail, with 11 percent and 10 percent support respectively.

    Tim Pawlenty, Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum and Haley Barbour all received single-digit backing among Republicans.

    The poll found Trump on top of all his potential rivals among Tea Party followers.

    Trump takes 20 percent of the Tea Party vote, followed by Romney with 17 percent, and Huckabee with 14 percent, the poll found.

    That could be an indicator of the strength of the overall Republican field - in which case, get ready for a second Obama term. :(

    I think it is closer than that. Iowa will heat up by this fall.

    I am not taking Trump seriously. I think it is schtick.

    The question about Huck, for me, is will he even enter the race? He has a good gig at Fox and Bachmann may be sucking up all the Iowa Evangelical oxygen while we are talking. And that is his launchpad if he were to make a serious run.

    I'm still waiting to see if the big guns like Huntsman, Daniels, or Bush enter the contest. Until then, this is Romney's to lose.

    If Barber is in, I don't see Daniels getting in. and the tide has turned against him.

    I don't see Jeb getting into it, too much anti-Bush crap out there. I don't think people would go for 16+ years of Bush's in the White House.

    Not sure about Huntsman. and I really don't see Romney getting the nod, too much baggage, his chance was 4 years ago and he screwed the pooch

    Romney follows the pattern (Reagan ~ '76, Dole ~ '88, McCain ~ '00) but the tea party wing of the Republican Party will give him a hard time. It may be that they break the cycle and we get someone else but right now, I think Romney takes it.

    Romney? Why not just get it over with and accept total submission to the god of government as the libertards wish? Why slide into totalitarianism with RINOS when we can elect DIMoRATS again and get there quicker?
