Latest Polls Show Cruz, Trump Separating from GOP Field

Latest Polls Show Cruz, Trump Separating from GOP Field
 

By    |   Sunday, 13 December 2015 01:17 PM EST

The latest national and state polls confirm Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and businessman Donald Trump are pulling away from the rest of the GOP presidential field.

A newly released NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll shows Trump maintaining his lead in the national horserace with a five-point lead over his nearest rival, Cruz.

The NBC/WSJ poll results are:
  • Trump: 27 percent
  • Cruz 22 percent
  • Marco Rubio: 15 percent
  • Ben Carson:  11 percent
All other candidates are in single digits.

But the nomination is won state-by-state, not in a national vote, and on that front, the latest two polls show Cruz on top, with Trump second.

First, a Bloomberg Politics/Des Moines Register poll  released Saturday showed Cruz 10 points ahead of Iowans who say they are likely to vote in the February 1 GOP caucuses.

In that poll:
  • Cruz: 31 percent
  • Trump: 21 percent
  • Carson: 13 percent
That was followed Sunday by a Fox News poll with Cruz up 7 points among likely voters.
  • Cruz: 32 percent
  • Trump: 25 percent
  • Carson: 12 percent
  • Rubio: 12 percent
The numbers are closer when all Iowa Republican voters are polled, but Cruz still leads 28 percent to Trump's 26 percent. Rubio, in third, is a distant 13 percent.

Still, Trump's numbers are strong nationwide.

Two new nationwide polls released last week show Trump has kept his commanding lead over his Republican rivals.

A New York Times/CBS poll released Thursday morning shows Trump with a lead more than twice of his nearest rival Cruz.
  • Trump: 35 percent
  • Cruz: 16 percent
  • Carson: 13 percent
  • Rubio, 9 percent
More impressive is Trump’s overwhelming lead in a Zogby Analytics poll released on Wednesday in which Trump widened his national lead to 25 points.

The Zogby poll is the only recent survey out of Iowa or nationally that does not put Cruz in the top two.
  • Trump: 38 percent
  • Carson: 13 percent
  • Rubio: 12 percent
  • Cruz: 8 percent
  • Bush: 7 percent
