Colin Campbell on the latest from Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
Trump held the No. 1 position in the three early-primary states surveyed by the CBS News Battleground Tracker out Sunday.
Trump held 29% support among Republican likely caucus voters in Iowa, compared with 25% for retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson and 10% for Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas.
In New Hampshire, Trump had 40%, compared with 12% for Carson, 9% for Gov. John Kasich of Ohio, and 8% for former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina.
And in South Carolina, Trump had 36% and Carson had 21%. No one else was close.
As good as those numbers appear, please note that about 60-percent to 70-percent of Republicans polled back someone else other than Trump.
What about Clinton?
Just 42% of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents now say they support her, compared with 24% for Sen. Bernie Sanders, who’s running as a Democrat, and 21% for Vice President Joe Biden, who is still deciding whether to enter the race.
Or, put another way, just over half of those polled want someone besides Hillary Clinton, but 76-percent want someone besides Bernie Sanders.
