Donald Trump has made a wild plea to Iowa voters — asking them to "get your asses in gear" and make him the Republican presidential front-runner in the Hawkeye State once again.

The billionaire developer — for months the top dog of the GOP presidential pack — was jolted this week when an Iowa poll, as well as a national poll said retired pediatric neurosurgeon Ben Carson had rocketed ahead to first place, leaving Trump in the dust at No. 2

"This is ridiculous … I mean, what is my competition, in all fairness?" Trump said to a crowd of 2,400 at a campaign event in Iowa, TheWrap.com reports.

"Iowa, will you get your numbers up, please? I promise you I will do such a good job."

Monmouth University poll released Monday shows Carson leading Trump 32 percent to 18 percent among likely Republican Iowa voters. And in a CBS News/New York Times national poll out Tuesday, Carson sailed past Trump, 26 percent to 22 percent.

Trump, who has a habit of shooting from the lip and ignoring the consequences, added tongue-in-cheek:

"I refuse to say get your asses in gear. I refuse to say it! So will you please do me a favor and work with my people and go out on Feb. 1 and vote? And if I win Iowa, we're going to run the whole table."

A showdown is expected between Trump and Carson during Wednesday night's third GOP presidential debate on CNBC.

Immediately following the debate, Sarah Palin and other top pundits will join Newsmax TV's post-debate special program offering their take on the candidates' performance.
