The Des Moines Register-Bloomberg Politics poll puts Carson in the lead with 28 percent to Trump’s 19 percent. Ted Cruz came in third in the poll with 10 percent, followed by Rubio at 9 percent, Jeb Bush and Rand Paul at tied 5 percent and Carly Fiorina at 4 percent.
Carson also received a ridiculous 84 percent “favorable” rating.
MSNBC’s Willie Geist said Friday the poll shows Carson’s lead in Iowa is “no fluke.”
