The latest Presidential Poll released by Fox News today shows a shake up in the Republican Race. Dr. Ben Carson has pulled to within 1% of Donald Trump, while Sen. Ted Cruz has moved past Sen. Rubio and Jeb!Bush and moved up to 3rd place.
Carly Fiorina has lost half of the support that she had following the last Republican debate. She is now a lower tiered candidate, tied with Mike Huckabee at 5%.
The poll was conducted between October 10-12th and has a margin of error of +/- 3% overall, and +/-5% for the subgroup of Republicans. The results are since the last poll conducted in September. Since that poll, Trump is down 2% from 26 % to 24%, Carson is up 5% from 18% to 23%, Ted Cruz is up 2% from 8% to 10%, Rubio stayed the same 9%, Bush is up 1% from 7% to 8%, Fiorina dropped 4% from 9% to 5%, Huckabee was up 2% from 3% to 5%, Paul was up 1% from 2% to 3%, Christie dropped 4% from 5% to 1%, and Kasich dropped 3% from 4% to 1%. The others finished with 1% or less.
Winners: Carson up 5%, followed by Cruz and Huckabee up 2%
Losers: Fiorina and Christie down 4%, followed by Kasich down 3%
If present trends continue, by the time the next Fox News Presidential Poll is taken, we may very well have a new leader!
