15. Newsmedia have repeated that again and again. Polls reflect that

This is the problem with polls (scientific or not). There is a feedback loop. This is part of the Trump's phenomena (and Trump is exploiting it well, as he is saavy with these issues). And the incompetence of most media people on polls does not help (as shown by comments like "no other candidate is in double digits as if there was something sacred about double digits, when a candidate is 10 and the next one is 9, for example). And yes, this has nothing to do with the post, but I am really frustrated by the comments concerning the GOP field because it seems some people have only one tune to play, ranking candidates from 1 to 14).

It seems Rubio's appeal is already fading and Cruz is catching up, and who knows what will happen after that. There is still a couple of months before Iowa.
