As the OP, do you have any thoughts on this, or are you simply playing news aggregate?
As for myself, I couldn't care less what polls say.

There are sixteen major candidates for the Republican nomination for president. All but three of them have been United States senators or state governors at some point in their careers. The other three, according to a Morning Consult poll of people who watched the 11 leading contenders debate this past Wednesday, are leading the race.
This post-debate poll
Prior to Wednesday evening’s TV event, the people had spoken clearly through a number of major polls, and their top two run-away choices are clearly Donald J. Trump and Dr. Benjamin Carson. You wouldn’t know it after enduring three hours of CNN’s stage-managed production. This is perhaps the most damning indictment of the establishment politics in living memory, and potentially a major watershed moment in terms of American politics. Instead of using real public opinion as a gauge, the media mafia, just like in a Las Vegas boxing match, made the necessary moves behind the scenes to tilt the playing field in favor of the weaker candidates. This is nothing new, and they wouldn’t be alone. The only problem now is that the public is becoming wise as to how the media and the political establishment (in this case the GOP), work together in fixing the race.
I still don't see how Bush can come back from where he is polling right now. He will have to get past Trump, Carson and Fiorina and I don't see him getting that level of support.
I know I am a liberal, but fixing the party nominations rubs me wrong. Ron Paul lost to dirty tricks, not because of public opinions and that was simply wrong. imho
