Cruz Soars to Front of the Pack in Iowa Poll

Bloomberg Politics‘ John McCormick reports, “Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz has surged ahead to become the latest front-runner in the campaign for the Iowa caucuses, dislodging Ben Carson and opening an impressive lead over a stalled Donald Trump, a Bloomberg Politics/Des Moines Register Iowa Poll shows.” Cruz garners 31 percent of likely caucus-goers, ten points up from Trump. McCormick adds, “In a week when he received the endorsement of one of Iowa’s most visible evangelical leaders, the poll shows Cruz with support from 45 percent of those who mainly define themselves as evangelical conservatives, more than double what Carson gets.”
