Donald Trump leads new poll. What do you think of him? Vote here now.

The day after the Republican spanking of Congressional Democrats in November 2010, I started a poll on the right rail of this Blog on potential Republicans for president.  Folks have been adding their votes from time to time, with the rankings changing ever so slightly from week to week.  For instance, Sarah Palin was the frontrunner in the Rooftop Blog Poll for a few months, but since then Mitt Romney has been slightly ahead of the field.

As of today the percentages:  Mitt Romney, 21%; Sarah Palin, 19%; Mike Huckabee, 18%; Newt Gingrich, 11%; Tim Pawlenty, 10%; John Thune, 10%; Haley Barbour, 8%; and Mitch Daniels, 3%.

But now, of course, there is The Donald.

Some claim he is catching fire with key Republicans.  Others in the GOP are downplaying his candidacy and claiming that he can’t be taken seriously.

Trump is pulling about 26% in recent national polls, with Huckabee a distant second at 17%. 

So I have added him to my poll.  If you haven’t voted, and a lot of you haven’t, please cast your vote now–to either give Trump some respectability (which, I believe, he lacks entirely), or to be sure he doesn’t catch up in this prestigious poll.
