Since entering the Presidential race, Donald Trump has maintained a monopoly on the media’s attention, and as a result has consistently maintained at the top of the pack in the polls. Until now.
For the first time in one of the four states holding nominating contests, Donald Trump has a new challenger in the polls: Ben Carson. To quote the details from AllenbWest.com:
Donald Trump and Ben Carson are tied for the lead in the first-in-the-nation caucus state of Iowa, according to a Monmouth University poll released on Monday.
The survey found Trump and Carson taking 23 percent support each.
It’s the first survey of Iowa released this month not to show Trump all alone in the lead, and further evidence of Carson’s polling strength.
What makes it interesting is that Trump’s former long-time advisor recently suggested that Trump pick Carson as his VP. Regardless of how this plays out, I can’t say I would mind to see a Trump/Carson 2016 ticket.
