    For the first time in more than a month, mogul Donald Trump is not leading the field in one of the first four nominating states in the Republican primary, according to a new poll.

    Neurosurgeon Ben Carson has surged up in the pack to tie Trump in Iowa, Monmouth University found in a poll out Monday.

    Trump and Carson are tied at 23%, according to the survey, making it the first time since July 26 that a poll in the first four states to select a Republican nominee did not find Trump substantially ahead of all other candidates.

    Farther behind Trump and Carson were former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, at 10%; Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, at 9%; Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, at 7%; former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, at 5%; Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, each at 4%; Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, at 3%; and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, at 2%. No other candidates topped 1%.

    The results are a stark contrast from Monmouth's last Iowa poll, taken before the first Republican debate. In late July, Walker led with 22%, Trump had 13%, Carson had 8% and Fiorina was at 3%.

    This guy would be a great president and would erase a lot of the divide and racial tension that obama has caused.

    Technically being tied for first is still leading. I like Carson too, so this is not bad news, thankfully it's not Jeb.

    smart guy. but i think voting ina poll, and voting in an election, in this instance are vastly different things.

    i think jeb, rubio, or kasich will get the nom

    last month i woulda included walker, but he comes off as a follower

    technically carson would be the first black president if elected. we would have to move Obama to the high yella category.

    Will trumps say something slightly racist
    to attack the black fella?

    Not suggesting he's racist but he's the kinda guy who seems to step over the line just a bit when going at someone-it's sorta cool

    Why does he do this?
    Because Trump gotta Trump

    Never happen, last few polls Jeb has dropped into single digits, I don't care if he spends a ton of that money he won't get any traction.

    I think people are seeing what a stiff Jeb really is. That and a tarnished family name give him a very uphill battle. Kasich has the likability factor and Rubio is pretty solid too, as far as Republicans go. Walker has gone down for me too in terms of opinion.
