We have another poll showing the state of Iowa is up for grabs, that Trump doesn’t have a double digit lead like the Fox News and CNN polls have recently suggested:

QUINNIPIAC – The Iowa Republican Caucus is a two-man race going down to the wire with Donald Trump at 31 percent and Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas at 29 percent among likely Republican Caucus participants, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida is at 13 percent, with no other candidate above 7 percent.

This is virtually unchanged from results of a January 11 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University showing Trump at 31 percent, with 29 percent for Cruz and 15 percent for Rubio.

Today, 2 percent are undecided and 39 percent of those who name a candidate say they might change their mind.

Here’s the full lineup. Note that Trump and Cruz are within the +/- 3.8 margin of error:

From January 18 – 24, Quinnipiac University surveyed 651 Iowa likely Republican Caucus participants with a margin of error of +/- 3.8 percentage points. Live interviewers call land lines and cell phones.

A poll from yesterday showed that Cruz leads the race in Iowa by almost 7 points among likely caucus goers. You can check that one out here.
