Donald comes up Trumps in poll

Polls now show presidential candidate and real estate mogul Donald Trump is still ahead of fellow Republican hopefuls after his controversial comments about Senator John McCain a week ago.

Trump is leading the pack with 18pc support among likely Republican voters in America, with former Florida Governor Jeb Bush in second place at 15pc.

"I'm not that surprised, because I see the crowds we're getting," Trump said.

"These are great people and they want to see the country turned around."
