“I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, okay, and I wouldn’t lose any voters, okay?” Trump said to the laughter of the audience at a rally at Sioux Center in Iowa. “It’s, like, incredible.”

Trump made the remark while discussing recent polls, which found that he is not only the GOP frontrunner – with 35% support – but has the most loyal and enthusiastic fan base of the GOP candidates.

Some 51% of Trump supporters say they are “absolutely certain” they will vote for him, NBC reported. Another three in 10 say there is a “large chance” he will get their vote.

Supporters of Cruz and Rubio supporters, however, said they were not certain they will vote for the candidate they currently support come the Republican primaries.
