(Newser) Another Sunday, another fun day for Donald Trump, who is still leading the Republican presidential pack a second week in a row despite any number of gaffes, recent or otherwise, according to an NBC poll out today. The new poll has Trump at 19% among GOP primary voters, with Scott Walker polling at No. 2 with 15%; Jeb Bush comes in third with 14%. The rest are: Ben Carson, 10%; Ted Cruz, 9%; Mike Huckabee, 6%; Rand Paul, 6%; Marco Rubio, 5%; Chris Christie, 3%; Rick Perry, 3%; John Kasich, 3%; Bobby Jindal, 1%; and Rick Santorum, 1%. Polling at less than 1% are Carly Fiorina, Lindsey Graham, George Pataki, and Jim Gilmore. Per NBC's estimate, candidates who will miss the coming debate are Perry, Santorum, Jindal, Fiorina, Pataki, Graham, and Gilmore.
