New DMR Poll out tonight has Trump leading Cruz 28% to 23% in Iowa
Donald Trump has muscled ahead in Iowa, regaining his lead on the brink of the first votes being cast in the 2016 presidential race.
Trump stands at 28%, while rival Ted Cruz has slid to 23%. But there’s still a strong case for Cruz in this race — he’s more popular and respected than Trump, the final Des Moines Register/Bloomberg Politics Iowa Poll shows.
Forty-six percent of likely caucusgoers say they don’t care that he boycotted Fox News’ event, the final match-up before the vote.
Just 29% say they disapprove, while 24% approve of Trump's choice, which was announced the day this poll went into the field.
