Carson Plows Ahead of Trump in Iowa

The latest Iowa primary polling now shows retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson surging ahead of real-estate mogul Donald Trump in the race for the Republican Party nomination. According to the new Des Moines Register/Bloomberg Politics poll, Carson now sits at 28 percent, nine percentage points ahead of Trump’s 19 percent. GOP voters in the socially conservative caucus state have seemingly responded to Carson’s controversial comments on religion, bumping him up 10 percentage points since August, while dropping Trump by four.
