Trump Catches Carson in Iowa Poll

Donald Trump has officially caught up to Ben Carson in Iowa. In the last major Iowa poll, Trump had fallen behind Carson.

The poll was conducted by CNN/ORC. Trump managed to secure 25 percent of the support, while Carson had 23.

The Hill reports:

Those findings show a much closer race between the two candidates than did several recent surveys that put Carson several points ahead.

Still, half of Iowa GOP voters in the CNN poll released Friday are undecided on a candidate to support in the February caucuses. Twenty-seven percent have “definitely decided.”

The latest CNN survey in Iowa finds Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) in third place, with 13 percent, and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) following closely behind at 11 percent.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush follows at 5 percent, with former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal taking 4 percent each.

On the Democratic side, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton continues to lead Bernie Sanders, taking 55 percent to the Independent Vermont senator’s 37 percent in the latest CNN poll on Iowa.

The survey of 548 likely GOP caucusgoers was conducted Oct. 29 through Nov. 4 via landlines and cellphones with a margin of error of 4 points. The survey of 498 Democrats has a margin of error of 4.5 points.
