Carson jumped 13 points nationally among Republicans to 18 percent, still trailing Trump who secured 30 percent of the Republican support. Carson has the highest favorability rating among Republican candidates, with 79 percent of likely GOP caucus-goers seeing him positively. But the August survey has him tied for third with Sen.
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush fell out of second place, dropping from 12% support in August to 8% now, though that fall is within the margin of error.
“None of the establishment candidates are having any success in getting an anti-Trump vote to coalesce around them”. “These results mark a significant shake-up in the leaderboard from Monmouth’s Iowa poll taken before the first debate”, Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute in West Long Branch, N.J., said in a statement.

Monmouth University also asked voters to weigh in on head-to-head matchups between Trump and the other GOP hopefuls. Only 20% hold a favorable view of Kelly, though that is somewhat unsurprising considering Trump’s ongoing beef with Kelly and her network.
Lange’s likely alternative: Ben Carson. CNN announced that it was amending its rules this week in an effort to include candidates who have seen a bump in the polls since the first debate last month. Almost 6-in-10 (59%) GOP voters continue to have no opinion of him.
Trump 44%, Gore 41%. 2, surveyed 366 registered voters who identify as Republican or lean Republican. Marco Rubio, picked up 5 percent, while former Hewlett-Packard executive Carly Fiorina and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee followed with 4 percent each. In Iowa, it’s the same but one poll has them tied at 23%.
