Trump's lead grows as Bush slips in Republican White House race: Reuters poll

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks at a rally held in Ladd-Peebles stadium in MobileRepublican Jeb Bush’s support is slipping in the race for the party’s presidential nomination, and front-runner Donald Trump has opened a 20-point lead over his closest rivals, a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll showed on Tuesday. Republican backing for Bush dipped from 16 percent to 8 percent in the last five days, the online poll found, as the former Florida governor feuded with Trump over immigration policy and defended his use of the term “anchor babies” to describe U.S.-born children of illegal immigrants. Trump’s support remained largely unchanged over the last week at about 30 percent, well ahead of the 17-strong pack seeking to represent the Republican Party in the November 2016 presidential election.
