Donald Trump has company on the Iowa GOP presidential podium, as Sen. Ted Cruz has moved within the margin of error at the top of a new Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday.
The real estate magnate wins one-quarter of likely Republican caucus-goers, compared to the Texas senator’s 23 percent. Ben Carson, the former neurosurgeon who edged Trump out for the lead in last month’s Quinnipiac poll, sits in third with 18 percent while Sen. Marco Rubio rounds out the upper-tiers of candidates with 13 percent.
Rubio’s support holds steady from Quinnipiac’s October poll, while Cruz’s has more than doubled from 10 percent in October.
This is interesting for a few reasons.
A) This should change the landscape of the next GOP debate, where hopefully, Ted Cruz will be given more time to speak.
B) While many click-bait Conservative websites tried to convince you that Donald Trump had picked Ted Cruz as his VP nominee, that’s in fact the opposite of true. Trump has said that if Cruz becomes a threat, that he’ll have to take him out.
“If he catches on, I guess we’ll have to go to war,” he told host Joe Kernen on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.”
So a prediction, unless Cruz immediately abandons his campaign to join Trump as VP, expect Donald Trump to start attacking him.
… but only once the media starts attacking Cruz. Particularly the leftist media. Trump doesn’t like to start attacks against Conservatives, he just likes to doggy-pile on with liberals in power.
It’s not lost on us that Ted Cruz skyrocketed to 1st place after his LwC interview, which was Cruz like you’ve never seen him before. So I don’t want to take credit but… you’re welcome America.
Also, LOL at Jeb Bush’s 4 percent.
