CNN/ORC Poll: Fiorina Drops 11 Points, Momentum May Be Over

CNN/ORC Poll: Fiorina Drops 11 Points, Momentum May Be Over

By    |   Tuesday, 20 October 2015 08:29 AM EDT

Carly Fiorina's post-GOP debate bump appears to be over, with a new national CNN/ORC poll released Tuesday showing her numbers taking a drastic drop from 15 percent in September down to just 4 percent, putting her once again in the bottom tier of candidates.


Donald Trump remains on top, with the following poll results:
  • Donald Trump with 27 percent;
  • Ben Carson, 22 percent, up 8 points;
  • Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, 8 percent;
  • Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, 5 percent;
  • New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie;
  • Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Fiorina pulled in 4 percent;
  • Ohio Gov. John Kasich, 3 percent;
  • Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, 2 percent;
  • South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, 1 percent.
  • Former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, and former New York Gov. George Pataki, less than 1 percent.
Fiorina also scored low in a NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released on Monday, in which Republicans nationally put her in sixth place, with 7 percent of the voters surveyed.

To be on the main stage in next week's' CNBC debate, candidates need an overall average of 2.5 percent from qualifying public polls since the last GOP debate, reports Politico.

Out of the lower-ranking candidates, Huckabee, Paul, Christie and Kasich are all polling at 3 percent, so they all, for now, could qualify. Graham, though, with a 1-percent vote, could possibly still have enough support to squeak into the undercard debate with Santorum, Jindal, and Pataki.

Gilmore, however, remains at zero percent, so he will not qualify for the debate.

The CNN/ORC poll surveyed 456 registered Republicans between Oct. 14-17, and carried a margin of error of plus or minus 4.5 percentage points.
