The latest on the presidential horse race.

Trump Tops the GoP in Iowa

The latest poll by Quinnipiac has revealed that Donald Trump is still leading the Republicans in Iowa. He scored 27 percent of the vote, while Carson came in second with 21 percent. The other candidates were significantly lower than Trump and Carson.

Which Republican candidate would you vote for?

  • Donald Trump – 27%
  • Ben Carson – 21%
  • Ted Cruz – 9%
  • Jeb Bush – 6%
  • Carly Fiorina – 5%
  • Marco Rubio – 5%
  • Scott Walker 3%

By this point, Trump and Carson are the two most promising candidates from the Republican Party. Trump represents the classic loudmouthed and racist Republican who relies on traditional Republican values from a dated time. Carson is defined by his calm and collected demeanor. He doesn’t rely on being loud, he is analytical, and he can construct a logical argument without resorting to bullying.

Turmoil has emerged amongst the lower ranked candidates. Both Rand Paul and Bobby Jindal have openly criticized Trump in the media. Paul claimed that Trump is a fake Republican, while Jindal called Trump a narcissist.

Walker and Bush are struggling to stay relevant as their campaigns push on. Walker is facing a tough decision in Wisconsin regarding drug testing for welfare patients and Bush is struggling to convince the average American that he is a worthwhile candidate that can offer something different than his father and brother did when they were in office.
