Ben Carson even with Donald Trump in Iowa:….

Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson tied real estate mogul Donald Trump for the top slot in a poll released Monday, the first time another contender has matched Trump’s lead in the state. The poll also found that two-thirds of likely GOP Iowa caucus-goers say that regardless of who they support, the next president should be from outside of government who can bring a new approach to Washington.Donald Trump and Ben Carson are tied at 23 percent and Carly Fiorina is stealing third in the new Monmouth University poll of likely Iowa Republican caucusgoers released Monday.

Presidential candidate Rick Perry now has just one paid staffer left on his Iowa team but plans to continue seeking Iowans’ votes for the GOP caucuses, aides told The Des Moines Register on Monday morning. “We are continuing our Iowa campaign, with several September dates planned and other dates under consideration,” said Perry’s Iowa strategist Bob Haus, who remains on board as an unpaid advisory role, as he did for the former Texas governor in the 2012 election cycle. Carson matched Trump with 23% support among the state’s Republican voters, both of whom were followed by former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina with 10%. Former GOP Communications Director Doge Heye, appearing on CNN’s “At This Hour” with John Berman, argued that the rise of the non-establishment candidates “speaks to the anti-Washington atmosphere that’s throughout this country.” John Berman: There’s a brand new poll out, I can’t wait anymore to share with you that comes from Monmouth University.

It was reported in mid-August that Perry, who lags at the bottom of polling in the GOP race in Iowa, was short on cash and was no longer paying campaign staffers. None of the remaining candidates, including established political players such as Jeb Bush and Scott Walker, managed to crack the double digits. “These results mark a significant shake-up in the leaderboard from Monmouth’s Iowa poll taken before the first debate,” Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute said in a public statement. Scott Walker, once seen as the Iowa frontrunner, is fifth in the poll with 7%. * In Nashville, Tennessee, over the weekend, Trump won a presidential straw poll at the National Federal of Republican Assemblies event. The poll of 405 registered Republicans in Iowa who voted in at least one of the last two state primary elections and said they were likely to attend the caucuses was taken from Aug. 27-30. File this away for future reference – will Christie be similarly lackadaisical if he’s excluded from the stage in upcoming debates? * And less than a year after Monica Wehby’s failed U.S.

I am confident that she will provide our campaign with great insights, advice, and a strong network to build our national campaign infrastructure.” “We are in the middle of a large fundraising push,” Haus said. “We won’t know the results of that for a while, and will continue campaigning.” “If we can rehire staff after the 15th, our Iowa team will get first consideration. If you played in Iowa politics as both Doug and I have, you know that Iowa voters actually take this responsibility of being first in the nation super seriously. They’ve consistently over the years rejected the candidates they see as status quo, and it doesn’t necessarily mean that ultimately that’s who they think should be president, but they do see it as kind of their responsibility to air the next thing. Trump among women. “After more than a month of Trump winning virtually every Republican demographic group, we’ve finally got a little variation in voting blocs to talk about,” Mr.

Carson had the clear edge on favorability, with 81 percent of Iowa Republicans saying they have a favorable view of him, compared to 6 percent who say they have an unfavorable one.
