Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has jumped businessman Donald Trump for the lead in the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucus, according to a new Des Moines Register/Bloomberg poll released Saturday.
Cruz paces the field with 31 percent support, followed by Trump at 21 percent, and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson at 13 percent.

Des Moines Register Poll.
Left-wing media cheers.

There are a lot of folks that can go with either. At primary time, they may just vote with the one that seems to have the best chance at the nom.
How about this sound bite.
Trump first lead. Then Carson. Now Cruz.
Give these Iowa voters 2 more weeks and it will be someone else.
Iowa voters seem to be confused about what they want.

Yeah- seems they have the wrong numbers in that post.

You’ll notice that these are MSM numbers. Iowans won’t be heard from for a while yet.

Cruz in control in Iowa. Now head for the New Hampshire and South Carolina primaries.
Left-wing media cheers.
Trump saw this one coming.
The actual poll is here:
Iowa has always surprised me that in the generals they usually go Democrat - never understood that out of a supposedly conservative, Midwestern state. Must be the big ag welfare from Washington.
