Iowa: Ben Carson Ties Donald Trump in New Monmouth University Poll
Guess who's going to be the next target for Mr. Trump?
Retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson has surged in Iowa to pull into a dead heat with Donald Trump among likely Iowa Republican caucus goers.
Both Carson and Trump received 23 percent of likely caucusgoers' support, according to the latest Monmouth University poll.
However, Carson leads Trump on favorability - Carson notches an 81% favorable rating while The Donald is down at 52%.
Coming in behind the two front runners, 10% of likely caucusgoers threw their support to Carly Fiorina, 9% to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), and just 7% for Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R).
At the end of the day (or this day at least) what does this all mean? That the top 3 GOP hopefuls are all non-politicians. That Republicans, at least in Iowa, are tired of career pols and want to maybe try something new?
According to a recent Gallup poll, a dismal 14% of Americans approve of the job the GOP-led Congress is doing.
