WASHINGTON, Oct. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- One America News Network, "OAN", a credible source for 24/7 national and international news, released its most recent 2016 National Presidential Poll conducted on September 30th through October 1st. Donald Trump is continuing to be triumphant as the GOP front-runner with a dominating 34.7 percent. Dr. Ben Carson comes in second at 17.2 percent, trailing behind the New York real-estate mogul with just under half of Trump's success. Senator Marco Rubio has a boost in the polling with 10.8 percent, making it into the top three. Trump, Carson and Rubio account for 62.7 percent of the tabulated votes. Businesswoman, Carly Fiorina is closely behind the Florida Senator with 8.8 percent. Rounding out the top five, just behind the former HP CEO, is Senator Ted Cruz at 7.3 percent.
On the Democratic side, Former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton has a commanding lead with 44.4 percent of the vote. Clinton is followed by Senator Bernie Sanders at 25.4 percent. Running neck to neck with Sanders is Vice President Joe Biden, who still has yet to throw his hat into the presidential ring, at 23.1 percent. No other candidate scored above five percent, making the Democratic Primary a three person race, at least at this point in time.
Fifty-two percent of the respondents disapprove of President Obama's job performance, while only 9 percent were unsure. If the voters surveyed had to pick between the two parties frontrunners, 52 percent would vote for Trump, while 48 percent would vote for Clinton. Dr. Ben Carson had the most favorable performance against Hillary Clinton, coming in at 53 percent to Clinton's 47 percent.
According to Robert Herring Sr., CEO of One America News Network, "Trump and Clinton continue to dominate the national polls. We still have a long ways to go, so it will be interesting to see if both of these candidates can maintain their leads. I'm excited to see what will happen within the next couple of months. Peaking at the right time will be key."
