Washington Examiner with the latest:
Donald Trump has opened a 20-point lead on the Republican presidential field, according to a new CNN/ORC survey.
The poll shows Trump received the support of 36 percent of registered voters, while Texas Sen. Ted Cruz came in second with 16 percent. Ben Carson is third with 14 percent, and no other candidate scored more than 4 percent.
Carson has dropped 8 percentage points since October’s CNN/ORC survey, and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush lost 5 percentage points. Friday’s poll shows Bush receiving support from three percent of respondents.
