Ted Cruz continues to hold an edge over Donald Trump in the GOP nomination race in Iowa, according to the latest Fox News poll of likely Republican caucus-goers.
The new poll, released Friday, finds Cruz receives 27 percent support and Trump 23 percent. Marco Rubio follows in third place at 15 percent.
That’s little changed from a month ago when Cruz had 28 percent, Trump had 26 percent, and Rubio had 13 percent (December 7-10).
Ben Carson is at nine percent (-1), Jeb Bush seven percent (+2), and Rand Paul five percent (no change).
Cruz’s advantage widens among caucus-goers who identify as “very” conservative. He garners 40 percent among this group — nearly double Trump’s 22 percent.
White evangelical Christians also prefer Cruz over Trump (33 vs. 19 percent). More
