Reuters’ five-day rolling poll for the GOP candidacy still shows Donald Trump with a commanding lead at 39.3 percent of respondents. Ted Cruz and Ben Carson round out the top four at 9.6 and 8.5 percent respectively.
But it’s the number five spot that’s cause for concern: “Wouldn’t Vote” garners 7.4 percent, considerably ahead of Jeb Bush at 6.1 percent and way ahead of all the other candidates stuck around 3 percent or less.
If Republicans have any hope of retaking the White House, we need to unite around a candidate. “Didn’t Vote” cost us the election in 2012, and we cannot afford a large block of voters to stay home in protest.
