ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: At a campaign event in Knoxville, Tennessee Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump weighed in on attacks in Paris that left at least 129 people dead. "Now you are talking about sneaky, dirty underhanded people that want to kill our civilians, they want to go after our civilians, they want to kill not only our civilians but all over the world, and it's gotta be stopped," Trump said. "So, in Paris the other night-- a horrible thing, and then all of a sudden we attack, and France attacks," he said. "Why didn't they do this a year ago? Two years ago? Why did they wait?," he asked. "They always wait for a tragedy to happen," Trump said. "They attacked the oil. Remember I have been saying for two years, 'attack the oil'. Everybody said, 'Oh Trump' with the oil," he said. "But I said more than attack it. I said attack it, take it and keep it, that's what I said." According to the five-day rolling Reuters/Ipsos presidential poll, released November 13, Trump has leapt some 17 percentage points among likely Republican voters since Nov. 6, when he was essentially tied with Ben Carson at about 25 percent. Trump now captures 42 percent of those voters while Carson has fallen off slightly. Among all Republicans - not simply likely primary voters -Trump holds a substantial edge over Carson, at 34 percent to about 20 percent, according to the Reuters/Ipsos poll. Trump has consistently held more than 25 percent of the support among all Republicans in the Reuters/Ipsos rolling poll for more than two months.
