A new national poll shows Donald Trump has regained his GOP front-runner position, knocking Ben Carson down eight points into second place.

Democrat Glenn Matlosz, 71, of Audubon, New Jersey, agreed. Twenty percent picked Carson, 12 percent picked Florida Sen. He's not mincing any words. Meanwhile, billionaire Donald Trump would beat the former secretary of state 48 percent to 37 percent in Colorado according to the Quinnipiac poll.

The Washington-based Public Religion Research Institute released its American Values study this week, including a supplement survey of opinions of presidential candidates. Only 10 percent said they were less confident in his abilities following the attacks. However, which of these candidates has an actual plan as opposed to piecemeal tactical solutions or platitudes?

The World survey has made a few enemies in recent weeks.

On Monday, Trump told a Knoxville, Tennessee, rally he believes bringing Syrian refugees to America is "absolutely insanity", and they should stay in the Mideast: "What I'd like is ... build a big attractive safe zone and you have whatever it is so people can live, and they'll be happier". Last weekend The Wall Street Journal said the terrorist attacks, "could shake up the 2016 presidential race, reminding voters of the high stakes and potentially boosting candidates who put their governing experience front and center". "We should be honest about the fact that to be successful, airstrikes will have to be combined with ground forces actually taking back more territory from ISIS", said Mrs. Clinton during a speech in NY. The poll, conducted between November 15 and 17, may reflect Carson's bad preceding week of press, when details of his autobiography came under scrutiny. Overall results have an error estimate of plus or minus 1.9 percentage points and the error estimate for the leaned Republican voters is plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.
