Fiorina gains on Trump, Carson
Carly Fiorina, a star of the GOP debate Wednesday, remains significantly behind Donald Trump in the race for the party's presidential nomination, according to two surveys released Sunday. The polls, for NBC News and CNN, showed that GOP voters gave Fiorina and Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida the best marks for their debate performance, but that Trump remained the favorite. Trump had support of roughly three in 10 self-identified Republicans and GOP-leaning independents in the NBC poll. Ben Carson was in second place with 14 percent and Fiorina in third at 11 percent. Although Trump has the most support, he is also the candidate with the highest share of Republicans who view him unfavorably — 40 percent in the CNN survey.
