New Fox Poll Republican Primary 8 January 2016

A new poll dated January 8 is continues to show Donald Trump dominating the field for the republican nomination with Ted Cruz holding steady in second place.

Trump leads with an impressive 35% compared to 20% for Cruz. The full results are as follows:

Donald Trump 35%

Ted Cruz 20%

Marco Rubio 13%

Ben Carson 10%

Jeb Bush 4%

Carly Fiorina 3%

Chris Christie 2%

John Kasich 2%

Rand Paul 2%

As the Iowa Caucus draws near without doubt the rhetoric and personal attacks among candidates will be ratcheted up to fever pitch. As recently as a few weeks ago many polls were showing a clear lead for Cruz in key state, however according to recent surveys his advantage seems to be dwindling and the gap between him and Trump narrowing significantly. RealClearPolitics average has the lead at a mere 2.5%. In New Hampshire the situation is quite different with trump having a healthy lead.
