The Journal poll broke a streak of 31 consecutive national polls that had Trump atop the GOP primary field.

Trump accused the newspaper of bias during his MSNBC town hall last Wednesday night.

“I think somebody at the Wall Street Journal doesn’t like me,” he said, adding that he has “never done well with the Wall Street Journal poll.”

“I don’t know. They do these small samples, and I don’t know exactly what it represents.”

Trump early Thursday called the NBC/WSJ poll a “total joke,” pointing in a tweet to a new CBS News poll that showed him leading the Texas senator by 17 percentage points.
