Trump Cleans up in Iowa, Taking Two Polls

Donald Trump won the two latest polls in Iowa, toppling Ted Cruz. The latest releases by Fox News and CBS News/YouGov saw Trump maintain his position at the top of the party.

The Republican nomination is still Trump’s to lose. While Cruz edges closer in certain polls, Trump continues to dominate him in the majority of them.

Trump has been relatively quiet in the recent weeks, based on his own standards. His only major brush with the media was his recent comment about him being so well liked that he could shoot someone in the street and not lose support. With Trump, his entire campaign is a circus act that we are patiently waiting to end. However, as the primaries draw closer, it seems like it will never end and that he will very likely be the Republican candidate in 2016.

Cruz is campaigning hard, desperately trying to topple Trump, but he cannot seem to overtake him for an extended period of time. Any poll that Cruz wins, Trump surpasses him by the next release. Cruz is still a legitimate candidate, but he needs to start winning Iowa polls if he wants to have any chance of beating Trump for the Republican nomination.
