According to Robert Herring, Sr., CEO of One America News Network, "Donald Trump's strong showing in this recent national poll is consistent with what we've been seeing in the state polls. He's clearly been attracting strong interest from Republicans across the country. The Democratic poll results are clear. At best it's a two candidate race at this point. Based upon the poll results, it looks like Hillary Clinton will secure the Democratic nomination, unless there is some sort of blow up or a surprise surge by an announced, or unannounced candidate. One America News is pleased to provide our viewers with on-going up-to-date poll results and we've more upcoming state and national polling underway utilizing the polling firm Gravis Marketing."
Doug Kaplan of Gravis Marketing states, "Trump's poll numbers are once again amazing. At this time in the process in 2008 and 2012, there were already multiple debates. The upcoming debates will be critical. I think Jeb Bush, with a second place national poll result and sitting on a ton of money is in a strong position. On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton is coasting to the nomination. We haven't seen anything like this since Richard Nixon in 1960."
