So Ted Cruz’s decision not to attack Donald Trump is apparently paying off. While Donald wait for Cruz to throw the first punch, Cruz is quietly chipping away at Trump’s inevitability, slowly corroding the banks of Trump’s credence. While Trump cast a blind eye in Cruz’s direction, Cruz is forever nipping at Trump’s heels.
Ted Cruz has soared ahead of Donald Trump in a new Iowa poll, opening up a 10-point lead in the critical first-in-the-nation voting state.
The Des Moines Register and Bloomberg Politics poll released on Saturday finds Cruz commanding 31% of likely Republican caucus-goers in the state, 10 points ahead of Trump, who received 21%.
For Cruz, the poll represents a massive 21-point jump from a survey conducted by the two outlets in October.
Cruz and Trump will face off Tuesday in Las Vegas at the next Republican presidential debate, sponsored by CNN.
“We have more work to do, but we can definitively say the message is working,” Cruz’s Iowa state director, Bryan English, told CNN in a statement.0
