With New WBUR Poll Out, Analysts Talk What To Watch For In GOP Debate

Download Audio

A WBUR poll out Wednesday shows support for Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump leveling off, while support for another political outsider, Dr. Ben Carson, is growing.

The WBUR poll of likely New Hampshire voters shows Trump in the lead with 22 percent of support, followed by Carson with 18 percent of support. That's within the poll's margin of error.

The poll comes as the Republican political candidates are preparing for their second televised debate. For an update on where things stand for the candidates, WBUR's regular political analysts — Democratic strategist Dan Payne and Republican strategist Todd Domke — joined Morning Edition.

This segment aired on September 16, 2015.
