BOOM! Ben Carson Tops Trump In Another State Poll!!
While el Trumpo demands that Iowans quit screwing around and start showing up at the polls for him, he might want to take a trip south to good’ol Texas too.
A KTVT-CBS 11 / Dixie Strategies Poll of over 2,000 likely primary voters in Texas shows a pitched battle taking place at the top of the GOP ticket and Clinton dominance on the Democrat side.
Statewide, among likely GOP Primary voters, Dr. Ben Carson and real estate mogul Donald Trump are in a virtual tie at 22.93% and 22.17% respectively. Texas Senator Ted Cruz is the next nearest competitor at 14.27% with former Florida Governor Jeb Bush not too far behind Cruz at 12.65%. All other GOP candidates are polling under 7% with Florida Senator Marco Rubio ahead of former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina (6.57% and 4.57% respectively).
When looking at respondents in the DFW Area, the numbers vary a bit. Carson (23.11%) leads Trump (20.45%) by almost 3 points with Cruz (16.67%) and Bush (13.64%) in third and fourth place respectively. All other GOP candidates poll under 6% in the DFW area.
Carson only leads El Trumpo by one point which is within the margin of error, but it’s yet another crack in what has been the Donald’s dominance in the polling until this last week.
Will the cracks continue or will the Donaldinator shore up his support?
