Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump had a slight lead over rival Dr. Ben Carson in Iowa, according to a poll released Monday.
The Public Policy Polling survey showed that Trump had 22 percent support from Republican primary voters in Iowa while Carson had 21 percent. The numbers marked a dip for Trump and a rise for Carson.
The pollsters noted that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) made the biggest gain in Iowa since PPP’s September poll, rising from 8 to 14 percent.
In four other recent polls by different pollsters, Carson beat out Trump for the top spot among Republicans in Iowa. Carson led by double digits in a poll released Tuesday.
The PPP poll interviewed 634 usual Republican primary voters by phone and Internet surveys from Oct. 30 to Nov. 1. The margin of error was plus or minus 3.9 percent.
