Last Minute Iowa Poll Indicates Three-Way Dead Heat – And They Show Momentum for Marco Rubio


H/T to Sarah Rumpf for this last minute Opinion Savvy Poll which shows a statistical dead-heat in tonight’s Republican Iowa Caucus between Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. During the evenings of January 29 and January 30, registered Iowa republican voters, all likely caucus goers, were surveyed. All responses other than “definitely” will attend caucuses were excluded. Of the 887 respondents:

Trump: 178 (20.1 %)

Cruz: 172 (19.4 %)

Rubio: 165 (18.6 %)

Carson: 80 (9.0 %)

Paul: (8.6 %)

As Scathing Purple Musings focused on yesterday, Marco Rubio leads all candidates as respondents second choice:

Rubio: 162 (16.0 %)

Cruz: 129 (14.5 %)

Carson 117 (9.4 %)

Trump 81 (9.2 %)

Paul (9.0 %)

Few dispute that Marco Rubio is surging in Iowa. This survey indicates that significant momentum is with him. While Trump and Cruz have battled negatives this  past week, enthusiasm for Rubio has been building. All the stars are aligned for a Rubio surprise win tonight in Iowa.

 

 

About Bob Sikes

A long time ago and a planet far, far away I was an athletic trainer for the New York Mets. I was blessed to be part of the now legendary 1986 World Series Championship. My late father told me that I'd one day be thankful I had that degree in teaching from Florida State University. He was right and I became twice blesses to become a teacher in the late 1990's. After dabbling with writing about the Mets and then politics, I settled on education.
