9/23/15, "Trump stays on top in first post-debate Fox News poll," The Hill, by Mark Hensch
"Businessman Donald Trump remains the front-runner for the GOP’s 2016 presidential nomination following his last debate performance, a new poll says. 

Trump remains eight points above his nearest competition following last week’s contest in Simi Valley, Calif., according to a Fox News survey.   

Trump commands 26 percent support. Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, meanwhile, ranks second with 18 percent. 

Trump led an August version of the poll with 25 percent, followed by Carson at 12 percent and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) at 10 percent....   

Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) tied for third place in Fox's poll with 9 percent apiece. 

Cruz took fifth place with 8 percent, and former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-Fla.) took sixth with 7 percent. 

Trump, Carson, Fiorina and Rubio have all gone up since the August version of the poll. Trump had 25 percent then, while Carson had 12 percent, Fiorina had 5 percent and Rubio 4 percent. Bush and Cruz, meanwhile, have slid since August. Bush had 15 percent in that survey, and Cruz 10 percent....

Fox News conducted its sampling with 1,013 random cell phone and landline interviews conducted by Shaw and Company Research (R) Sept. 20-22 nationwide. It has a 4.5 percent margin of error among GOP primary voters."
