IOWA, August 31, 2015– Retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson has been riding a post-debate wave of support that has lifted him to the top spot in the latest Iowa GOP primary poll.

According to Monmouth University’s poll released on Monday:

When Iowa Republicans are asked who they would support in their local caucus, Ben Carson (23%) and Donald Trump (23%) tie for the top spot. The next tier of candidates includes Carly Fiorina (10%) and Ted Cruz (9%), followed by Scott Walker (7%), Jeb Bush (5%), John Kasich (4%), Marco Rubio (4%), and Rand Paul (3%). The last two Iowa caucus victors, Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum, each garner 2% of the vote.

“These results mark a significant shake-up in the leaderboard from Monmouth’s Iowa poll taken before the first debate,” said Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute in West Long Branch, NJ. “Carson and, to a lesser extent, Fiorina have surged, while Walker has faded into the background.”

  • a lot of it has to do with “name recognition” , the career politicians have not been getting a lot of “face time” on television yet so their names dont come to mind when pollsters call and ask our opinions, until the next public debate is televised in mid September probably wont change much, More Joe Biden rumors and Clinton e-mail concerns but otherwise not a lot of big surprises

  • well the live news DISAGREES with your assessment that carson is tied with trump! Nice LIE!
