Cruz and Jindal Slowly Gain Ground as Trump Flattens in Iowa Poll

In a recent NBC News/WSJ/Marist Poll Donald Trump continues to lead the GOP pack poling at 24% with Ben Carson coming in a close second with 19%. The bad news for Trump is the his rise has ended as he has been stuck around the mid-twenties for weeks. The question for Trump now is can he ride 25% to the nomination.
Texas Senator Ted Cruz has gone from 2% to 6%, which many not seem like much, but of the establishment candidates, only Bush is better at 7%.
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has gone from 1% to 6% making the most impressive gain.
As the candidates continue to battle the names should start dwindling. Clearly three anti-establishment candidates are in it for a while in Donald Trump, Ben Carson, and Carly Fiorina, though the latter could exit the quickest. The establishment side has room for around four and it looks as if Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, and one, maybe two other candidates should be able to stay long enough to have a chance to win the nomination.

    Im still voting for Trump…the one who isn’t owned and controlled.

    No one else will build the needed wall or do anything about illegal immigration.

    Times are dangerous and we need a fighter for America who supports our veterans.

    Like him or not, no one running but Trump is expert in world finance or able to bring back our factories.

    This woman is not offended by his crass NY style, I respect his strength and reputation of getting things done right. Trump 2016

    Cruz an establishment pick? I don’t think so.

    The title of the article doesn’t match the poll. Trump is ahead in the poll. Trump will win in Iowa.
