Any Ted Cruz fans out there are going to be really excited about this.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has taken a commanding 10-point lead over billionaire businessman Donald Trump in the all-important first-in-the-nation presidential caucus state of Iowa, a new poll from the Des Moines Register and Bloomberg shows.
Cruz is now towering over the whole field at 31 percent, while Trump has fallen 10 points behind the Texas Senator to 21 percent. Dr. Ben Carson, another outsider, is in third place with 13 percent. The Washington establishment and donor class-backed Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) is in fourth place with 10 percent.
Both Cruz and Trump improved their numbers from the previous Des Moines Register/Bloomberg polls. Cruz’s jump is 21 points—from just 10 percent before, in October—and comes on the heels of major endorsements from Iowa’s Rep. Steve King (R-IA) and the Family Leader’s Bob Vander Plaats.
The Register’s lead political correspondent Jennifer Jacobs wrote in her piece on the poll that “There are signs Cruz may not have peaked in Iowa yet.”
