A new Quinnipiac university poll has Cruz pulling even with Trump in Iowa, according to Fox News. The poll shows Donald Trump at 25% with Cruz right behind at 23%.
Carson has slipped and is now at 18 and Rubio is behind that at 13.

Cruz’s numbers are up significantly from Quinnipiac’s Oct. 22 poll that showed Cruz at just 10 percent in Iowa. In that poll, Carson led the pack with 28 percent, followed by Trump at 20 percent.
“Last month, we said it was Dr. Ben Carson’s turn in the spotlight. Today, the spotlight turns to Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas,” Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, said in a statement.
Lower down the rankings, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul got 5 percent, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush got 4 percent, and former HP CEO Carly Fiorina got 3 percent.
The Senator is rising and the field is shrinking. With terror and American security at the front of people’s minds, Cruz is well-positioned to pick up supporters. Cruz’s proven record of standing athwart Congress on issues like the looming refugee crisis is sure to help him pick up voters as they drop away from the nearly– or already-out candidates.
