TRUMP, CRUZ ON TOP IN TOPSY-TURVY IOWA GOP CAUCUS, QUINNIPIAC UNIVERSITY POLL FINDS; KEEP SYRIAN REFUGEES OUT, REPUBLICANS SAY 5-1
Donald Trump gets 25 percent of Iowa likely Republican Caucus participants in a too-close-to- call race with Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas who is at 23 percent, double his support from four weeks ago, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. Dr. Ben Carson has 18 percent, with Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida at 13 percent.
“Last month, we said it was Dr. Ben Carson’s turn in the spotlight. Today, the spotlight turns to Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas. The Iowa Republican Caucus has become a two-tiered contest: Businessman Donald Trump and neurosurgeon Ben Carson lead on the outsider track, and Sens. Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio lead among party insiders,” said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.
“The other candidates will need miraculous comebacks to crack the top tier with slightly more than two months before the voting begins.”
