Donald Trump had been the frontrunner in the GOP presidential race since June when he launched his campaign. Unfortunately for him, however, a new poll shows that he may not be the frontrunner any longer.
A New York Times/CBS poll released on Tuesday shows that Dr. Ben Carson has taken the lead nationally in the GOP race with 26% to Trump’s 22%. According to Breitbart, the poll shows that Trump has lost five points while Carson has gained five points.
It wasn’t all bad news for Trump, however: the poll showed that his support is much firmer than Carson’s. A whopping 55% of Trump supporters said he is their man until the bitter end while only 20% of Carson’s supporters could say the same thing.
The other Republican candidates were trailing by at least fourteen points in the poll. Marco Rubio came in third with 8% while Jeb Bush and Carly Fiorina are tied at 7%. Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, and John Kasich are also all tied at 4%.
