Some Republicans gleefully scripted Donald Trump's political obituary in the wake of his scathing comments about Sen. John McCain's military service earlier this month, hoping that his freewheeling presidential campaign had finally imploded.The five-day rolling online poll had the real-estate mogul and reality TV star at 15 percent among Republicans Friday before rocketing to 24.9 percent Tuesday.Perhaps of greater concern to establishment Republicans, Reuters/Ipsos polling also shows that in a three-way race with Trump running as an independent in the general election, Trump would drain support from the Republican nominee and allow the Democrat, likely Hillary Clinton, to skate to victory.Trump has refused to rule out a possible independent run. In a matchup with Clinton and Bush, he would essentially tie Bush at about 23 percent among likely voters, with Clinton winning the White House with 37 percent of the vote. In 2012, Republican Mitt Romney won almost 60 percent of the white vote, yet still lost to President Barack Obama by 5 million votes.
