With the second Republican presidential primary debate just days away, former President Donald Trump maintains a huge lead in both the first-in-the-nation Iowa and the latest national poll conducted by The Trafalgar Group.

Trump leads the Iowa Caucus polling over Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (16%) and the field by nearly 33 points, pulling 49% support in the battleground state in which DeSantis and others have homed their resources.

  3. Entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy 5.9%
  4. Former U.N. Ambassador and South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley 4.2%
  5. Former Vice President Mike Pence 3.8%
  6. North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum 3.2%
  7. Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie 3.2%

  1. Trump 48.6%
  2. DeSantis 16.2%

The pollster surveyed 1,079 likely Iowa GOP primary voters Sept. 14-18, and the results have the same margin of error of plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.
