Pork - Who wouldn't be inspired?
(Public Policy Polling) - PPP's newest Iowa poll finds a tight race on the Republican side in the state with:
- Donald Trump at 22%
- Ben Carson at 21%
- Ted Cruz at 14%
- Marco Rubio at 10%
- Mike Huckabee 6%
- Bobby Jindal 6%
- Jeb Bush 5%
- Carly Fiorina 5%
Polling further back are Chris Christie at 3%, John Kasich, Rand Paul, and Rick Santorum each at 2%, Lindsey Graham with less than 1%, and Jim Gilmore and George Pataki each with no supporters.
Compared to our last Iowa poll in mid-September Trump's support is down 2 points (from 24% to 22%), while Carson's support is up 4 points (from 17% to 21%) putting them in the deadlock. The big gainer from a month ago is Ted Cruz though. He's gone from 8% to 14%, and also seen his favorability rating improve from 51/23 to 62/16. Cruz is now leading the field in Iowa among Tea Party voters (34% to 24% for Trump and 22% for Carson), and voters who identify themselves as 'very conservative' (24% to 22% for Carson and 21% for Trump.)
“Ted Cruz seems to have gotten the biggest boost out of the last six weeks in Iowa,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. “He’s seeing the greatest improvement both in his support for the nomination and for his overall image in the state.”
Carson continues to be easily the most popular of the Republican candidates in Iowa with 74% of GOP primary voters viewing him favorably to only 13% with a negative opinion. He's also the most frequent second choice in the state with 19% picking him on that front to 12% for Rubio, and 10% each for Cruz and Trump. When you combine first and second choices Carson leads the way with 40% to 32% for Trump.
