Donald Trump is extremely confident that his followers are loyal. In fact on Saturday, the GOP frontrunner boasted that he could “shoot somebody” and still not lose any support.
“I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, and I wouldn’t lose any voters, okay?” Trump said at a rally in Iowa.
Though it seems like crazy talk, the poll numbers seem to back up Trump’s confidence. Not only is he the frontrunner by a huge margin, but the majority of his supporters indicate they are “absolutely certain” that they will vote for him. Many supporters of Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and other candidates aren’t nearly as certain about their votes, according to the latest NBC poll.
