Donald Trump is leading the pack of hopefuls among GOP Iowa Caucus-goers, while Scott Walker has plummeted to the back of the line, a new poll from Quinnipiac University
The numbers fall this way:
- Trump, 27 percent;
- Ben Carson, 21 percent;
- Sen. Ted Cruz, 9 percent;
- Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has 6 percent;
- Carly Fiorina, Ohio Gov. John Kasich and U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida each garnered 5 percent.
Walker is at 3 percent, down from 18 percent in July. No other candidate topped 4 percent, and 4 percent of caucus-goers were undecided.
Trump, however, is the candidate most Iowa Republicans would least endorse for the GOP nomination with 25 percent of Iowa likely Republican Caucus participants saying they “would definitely not support” him. Bush is next on this “no way” list with 23 percent, followed by New Jersey Gov. Christopher Christie with 14 percent.
Republican Caucus-goers say 79 – 15 percent that experience outside of Washington is better for a president than Washington experience.
“The Iowa Republican Caucus looks like a two-man race in which the Washington experience that has traditionally been a major measuring stick that voters have used to choose candidates is now a big negative,” said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.
“With five months until the balloting, anything can happen. But the field has become a two-tiered contest – Donald Trump and Ben Carson ahead and everyone else far behind.”
