Another day, another poll showing Donald Trump in the lead. But Scott Walker is right behind him.
Businessman Donald Trump continues to lead the Republican presidential field, but a newcomer to the race is hot on his trail.
Trump took 18 percent support in a national Fox News poll released Thursday evening. Right behind him is Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, with 15 percent...
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush dropped to third place, garnering 14 percent support.

It is indisputable that Trump has risen to the top of the Republican heap because of his strong statements on immigration and because he has openly defied those who have tried to silence him. Walker too was making strong statements on immigration not long ago, but recently seems to be backing down. He's also may be privately assuring the hacks in Conservatism Inc. that he'll keep the cheap labor pipeline in place once safely in office.
At least during the campaign though, with Trump driving the debate, Walker will be forced to commit to a strong immigration patriot position, whatever his original intentions. The Main Stream Media clearly realizes Trump's importance. Therefore, MSM outlets are moving to quarantine The Donald, lest the American people continue to talk about immigration instead of what flag offended people today.
The Huffington Post isn't really a news site, more of a content aggregator that re-posts Stephen Colbert clips and embarrasses itself when it tries to act like a place for real journalism.
Nonetheless, it harrumphed:
After watching and listening to Donald Trump since he announced his candidacy for president, we have decided we won't report on Trump's campaign as part of The Huffington Post's political coverage. Instead, we will cover his campaign as part of our Entertainment section. Our reason is simple: Trump's campaign is a sideshow. We won't take the bait. If you are interested in what The Donald has to say, you'll find it next to our stories on the Kardashians and The Bachelorette.
So the leading candidate for the GOP nomination isn't a real candidate. What is "real" political news to HuffPo?

Talking about polls or policies I suppose counts as "mansplaining" or would be too "triggering" to HuffPo's emotionally fragile audience of special snowflakes.
