Donald Trump wins informal Alameda County GOP presidential poll

The Donald has support among Alameda County
Republicans, at least, those who go to the fair.

Local GOP is in tune with national polls

ALAMEDA COUNTY | Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is clearly touching a nerve among conservatives all over the country. In Alameda County, the intersection of fair-goers and local conservatives put Trump at the top of their list in an informal presidential poll conducted last weekend by the Alameda County Republican Party.

The poll attracted 634 voters, who registered their preferences at the party’s booth at the Alameda County Fair. Trump easily won the poll with 128 votes, or 20.2 percent. He was followed by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz at 15.8 percent and Ben Carson with 13.2 percent. The tally was posted on the Alameda County Republican Party’s Facebook page.

The outcome, although, highly unscientific, is similar to many national polls that place Trump, Carson, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Jeb Bush at the top of the list. It also highlights a preference for the far edge of the political spectrum that is quite common for either party’s adherents during the early primary season.

Below is the final tally:
Donald Trump……….128 20.2%
Ted Cruz…………..100 15.8%
Ben Carson………… 84 13.2%
Scott Walker………. 70 11.0%
Jeb Bush………….. 46  7.3%
Marco Rubio……….. 46  7.3%
Carly Fiorina……… 37  5.8%
Rand Paul…………. 30  4.7%
Rick Perry………… 15  2.4%
Chris Christie…….. 13  2.1%
Paul Ryan…………. 11  1.7%
Mike Huckabee……… 10  1.6%
Bobby Jindal………. 10  1.6%
