New Iowa poll has Ted Cruz in a virtual tie with Donald Trump

November 24, 2015

 Two days ago a poll was released which showed Ted Cruz moving into second place in Iowa, behind Donald Trump by 9 points while Ben Carson dropped into third place. Now another Iowa poll is out which shows the Senator from Texas in a virtual tie with Donald Trump with Ben Carson dropping yet again.

  Here is more:

Ted Cruz, buoyed by tea party support and the backing of the conservative wing of the Republican Party, has surged to a virtual tie with Donald Trump in the first caucus state of Iowa, according to the results of a Quinnipiac University poll surveying likely Republican caucus-goers released Tuesday.

Trump took 25 percent of support, followed by 23 percent who opted for the freshman Texas senator, more than doubling his support in the same poll from October, when he earned just 10 percent. Trailing the two leaders is Ben Carson, who dropped from first to third, falling 10 points to 18 percent.

Ted_Cruz  The poll also shows Marco Rubio as the only other candidate in double-digits and most notably Jeb Bush sits at just 4% support. Jeb Bush was the establishment choice and usually that would mean he was going to be the nominee but this year is different and much of the credit has to be given to Donald Trump and the voters finally saying enough is enough. Donald Trump has been able to seize upon voter anger and he has not let go. Marco Rubio is the establishment Republicans Plan B candidate so I would be wary of him, but Ted Cruz seems to have more voter support at this time.

  Ben Carson’s time in this election has come and gone and I believe his support will continue to slowly erode, the question is; will his supporters go to one candidate or will they go to several? Right now Ted Cruz seems to be the benefactor of Ben Carson’s dwindling support but as we have seen in this race, with the exception of Donald Trump, everything is in a state of flux.
