A new poll of Iowa Republican primary participants shows support for Donald Trump, the business mogul mulling a presidential run, slipping, while former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee stands strong in the early-primary state.
A few weeks ago, Public Policy Polling
conducted a similar poll in New Hampshire in which Trump was the only candidate who came close to the front-runner, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, trailing only 27 percent to 21 percent.
In Iowa, however, Huckabee earns 27 percent of the votes of usual caucusgoers, while Romney nets 16 percent and Trump, 14 percent. All other potential candidates had single-digit backing, the poll showed.
Without Trump in the race, Huckabee pulls ahead of Romney, garnering 30 percent support to Romney’s 18 percent, which is the same split in a polled conducted in early January. In this scenario, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich get 12 percent each.
