New national poll has Trump still on top; but nobody expected this to happen to Scott Walker, NOBODY!

A new Quinnipiac Poll in Iowa finds Donald Trump in the lead as the favorite presidential candidate of 27% of likely Iowa Republican caucusgoers, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson in second place with 21%, and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in third with 9%.

It’s a sharp contrast from Quinnipiac’s last GOP poll in Iowa in July when Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker was front-runner with 18% and Trump and Carson each had 10%.

Walker, who grew up in Iowa, is now at 3%, ranking him in 10th place, according to a news release Friday morning.


Trump tops another list, said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. Twenty-five percent of caucusgoers say they would “definitely not support” Trump for the GOP nomination. Former Florida governor Jeb Bush is next highest on this list with 23%, followed by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie at 14%.

Here are the results:

  • Trump: 27%
  • Carson: 21%
  • Cruz: 9%
  • Bush: 6%
  • Carly Fiorina/John Kasich/Marco Rubio: 5%
  • Mike Huckabee/Rand Paul: 4%
  • Walker: 3%
  • Bobby Jindal: 2%
  • Christie/Lindsey Graham/Rick Perry/Rick Santorum 1%
  • Undecided: 4%

Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,038 likely Iowa Republican caucusgoers Aug. 27-Sept. 8. The poll has a a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

Why did Walker fall so hard, so fast? Let us know below in the comment section.
