The latest Bloomberg Politics/Des Moines Register Iowa Poll shows billionaire Trump with the support of 23 percent of likely Republican caucus participants, followed by Carson at 18 percent. When first and second choices are combined, Carson is tied with Trump.Trump finds himself in a vastly better position than when the previous Iowa Poll was taken. He has become a credible presidential candidate to many likely Republican caucus-goers. The real estate mogul is rated favorably by 61 percent and unfavorably by 35 percent, an almost complete reversal since the Iowa Poll in May. He finds his highest ratings among those planning to attend the caucuses for the first time (69 percent) and limited-government Tea Party activists (73 percent). Just 29 percent say they could never vote for him, a number cut in half since May.

    CARSONS rise in polls came right after his stated and reaffirmed belief that a MUSLIM SHOULD NOT BE PRESIDENT BECAUSE IS.A IC SHARIAH LAW SUPERSEDS OUR
    U.S.A. CONSTUTION, WNICH KS OUR LAW OF THIS COUNTRY!!! I totally agree as do 82% of those polled. That caused his poll “surge” but TRUMP HAS CONSISTSNTLY ALWAYS BEEN IN THE LEAD IN ALL POLLS

    Something to consider.

    Regarding the upcoming Iowa Caucus, The Koch Brothers represent “Globalist Agenda Supporters” who are major players in Globalist Agenda 21. This faction has controlled local, state and federal governments for decades. Even though Trump has built an empire of his own, he is a threat to their attempt at global domination, which they will not tolerate. Check out the list of those they support in the following article.
