(Worthy News) - Donald Trump remains the clear Republican front-runner across the nation, and is defying the predictions of pundits again by gaining steam less than two months before the Iowa caucuses, according to a new poll.
Quinnipiac University's latest survey of Republican voters finds the billionaire businessman has risen 3 percentage points since early November and now stands at 27 percent.
Trump's bump comes after GOP strategists and members of the media speculated that his widely-disputed claim that "thousands" of Muslim-Americans celebrated the Sept. 11 attacks could create trouble for him in the polls, particularly with fellow Republican contenders Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio on rising swiftly.
