Carson Trumps Trump In Newest Iowa Poll

A poll released by Quinnipiac University has Ben Carson leading Donald Trump among likely Republican voters in Iowa.

With strong help from female voters, the Thursday poll has the retired doctor leading the Republican field with 28 percent, while Trump’s numbers slipped down to 20 percent. The same poll conducted on Sept. 11 showed Trump leading with 27 percent and Carson in second with 21.

“It’s Ben Carson’s turn in the spotlight,” said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

A lot of the help for Carson came from female Republican voters, as he was able to top Trump 33 to 13 among that demographic. Men were less divided and showed almost equal support for the two candidates with 25 percent for Carson and 24 for Trump.
