Donald Trump's lead in the race for the GOP presidential nomination reached an all-time high in a national poll conducted by Gravis Marketing. The survey shows Trump leading the Republican field with a whopping 40 percent, up from 31 percent in Gravis' July poll.
Ben Carson, who placed second in the new poll, had just 13 percent — 27 points behind Trump. Jeb Bush came in third at 10 percent, followed by Ted Cruz at 7 percent, and John Kasich, Carly Fiorina, and Marco Rubio at 5 percent each.

I heard Trump being interviewed on Bloomberg TV this afternoon and when he was asked what his chances were if being elected President he said 25%. He may have underestimated himself.
