The new poll released by Public Policy Polling a Democratic firm released on Monday found that Trump has 19% of the support with Iowa voters, the first caucus state in the nation.
Scott Walker the Governor of Wisconsin and Ben Carson tied for second with 12% support apiece, followed by former Florida Governor Jeb Bush in fourth with 11%, Carly Fiorina a businesswoman at 10% and Ted Cruz the Texas Senator with 9%.
Walker spent a number of months at the top of the Iowa polls, but recently Trump has overtaken him. Walker led this same poll in April with over 23% of the support but his support has fallen in dramatic fashion since the emergence of Trump.
Trump’s rating of favorability had risen in Iowa from April’s 40 % to a current 46%.
Trump is leading the GOP field amongst the Evangelical voters, moderates, women, men and voters in each age group. He also leads when it comes to Republican voters who believe he is the most electable candidate when it comes to the general elections.
The survey also contained positive news for Fiorina and Carson, two of the political outsiders who have not held an elective office.
Carson, who has 12% in the current poll, had been polling around the midway point of the group in Iowa. He was taking only 5.8% as an average across a number of polls.
He has a better favorability rating that any other candidate in the field at 69% positive and only 10% negative.
Fiorina, who now has 10% of the support in Iowa, has for a number of months struggled to take over 1% support in any of the polls. However, she was the consensus winner of the undercard debate on Thursday and many believe she could make a huge breakout at anytime.
Her favorability rating went from 30% in April to a current 56%.
Senator Marco Rubio and former Governor of Arkansas Mike Huckabee each have 6% support, with no others about 3%.
