After proposing temporarily bar Muslims from entering the country Trump has increased his lead in the Republican to its largest Margin, according to new Poll by Washington Post/ABC News Poll.

The poll is six points higher in favor of Trump at 38% among the registered GOP leaning independents and Republicans than in the Oct-Nov. As well Cruz who is running in same manner as an anti-establishment campaign has surged to 2nd place with 15%, effectively doubling support since previous month.

Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and Ben Carson are tied for third, with 12 percent each. Carson, who with Trump was at the top of the field earlier this fall, saw his support cut roughly in half over the past month. No other candidate in the new poll registers in double digits. Former Florida governor Jeb Bush stands at 5 percent among registered Republicans.

Of course at this point where the first votes is fewer than 50 days away, polls are not reliable predictors of where presidential nomination is heading towards. Four years ago former congressman Newt Gingrich tied with eventual nominee Mitt Romney to the Republican side, 8 years ago NY city mayor Rudy Guliani led the field of GOP, while Clinton held a wide lead over then-Sen. But as it’s known Giuliani and Clinton Lost eventually.
