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. (More Election 2016 stories.)
