New Rasmussen poll shows The Donald in decline

We have the first national survey to show Donald Trump in an apparent decline after his Fox News debate and weekend blow-up over Megyn Kelly. And former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina is on the rise. From its website:

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds Trump with 17% support among Likely Republican Primary Voters, down from 26% in late July before the first GOP debate. Senator Marco Rubio and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush are in second place with 10% support each, in a near tie with Fiorina and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker who both earn nine percent (9%) of the likely primary vote.

Next with eight percent (8%) come retired neurologist Dr. Ben Carson and Senator Ted Cruz at seven percent (7%).
