Scott Walker has a comfortable early lead with Iowa GOP voters, which isn’t a huge surprise given he’s been governor of neighboring Wisconsin and making national news there in a positive way. But the new Quinnipiac polls gets really interesting further down:
In the scramble for second place are U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky and U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida with 13 percent each, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas with 12 percent and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee with 11 percent. Physician Ben Carson has 7 percent, with 5 percent for Bush. No other candidate is above 3 percent and 6 percent are undecided.
Bush tops the list at 25 percent, followed by New Jersey Gov. Christopher Christie with 20 percent, when likely Republican Caucus participants are asked if there is any candidate they would definitely not support.”
Bush’s name and money haven’t bought him much love in Iowa.
