(CNN) – Donald Trump’s poll numbers have set him apart from the pack. A new Quinnipiac University poll shows Trump leads with 28 percent support from republican voters.
Now the frontrunner is explaining to the world why he’s doing so well.
A confident Donald Trump reading to the crowd.
“Remember how big those pages used to be.” Trump said. “El hombre del pelaquin. In other words, the man of the toupee…I don’t wear a toupee. It’s my hair, I swear. Come here, come here, come here.”
Upping the ante on his colorful antics, even pulling a woman onstage to defend his hairdo.
Trump said, “Come, come. Is it mine, look. Say it please.”
“Yes, I believe it is” the woman said.
His jovial mood perhaps thanks to a new Quinnipiac poll showing trump with his widest lead yet.
Trump now at 28 percent support, 16 points ahead of his closest competitor, Ben Carson
And attributing his rise to widespread frustration with Washington
Trump said, “The reason is we have a message, and the message is, and essentially we’re not gonna take it anymore, we’re just not going to take it anymore.”
A sentiment boosting outsiders like Carson, who is now a clear number-two, as Jeb Bush, falls behind.
Meanwhile South Carolina’s own senator Lindsey Graham not even registering in the latest poll.
Donald Trump said, “Has anybody ever heard of Lindsey Graham? This guy. He’s out of control. So a poll came out the other day. He was at zero!”
But along with trump’s frontrunner status; warning signs.
Six in 10 women question whether he cares about their problems and needs.
Trump trying to reassure them today and fitting in a jab at Jeb Bush said, “I cherish women, I will take care of women. I won’t be going around saying I’m not going to fund a certain program, women under my administration will be taken care of, not like Jeb Bush, what he said was a disgrace.”
In South Carolina today, more worries that he alienates Hispanic voters.
Tania Barron said, “I don’t believe in anchor babies. I believe my son should have the same right as every U.S. citizen. He’s been the one that’s been standing out the most against immigrants, against the anchor babies.”
Bush is also having troubles with minority voters.
He recently got some backlash for using the term “anchor babies” to describe women coming into the U.S. illegally just to have children born in the country.
Bush said it was mostly Asian women, then he backtracked and said he was talking about immigrants from countries other than Mexico.
