    Ben Carson is winning in the polls 02:28
    Story highlights
    • Ben Carson has unseated Donald Trump in the latest national poll
    • Carson is winning the most support from women and evangelicals
    Washington (CNN)For the first time in months, a national poll shows Donald Trump is not leading the Republican 2016 primary race, and instead has Ben Carson in first place.

    Carson won the support of 26% of Republican primary voters, compared to 22% who are backing Trump, according to CBS News/New York Times. Though within the poll's margin of error, it marks the first time since the billionaire businessman's dominant rise over the summer where he has been bumped from the top spot nationally.

    The new numbers also represent a reversal from the last CBS/New York Times poll, taken more than a month ago, which saw Trump leading Carson 27%-23%.

    Carson and Trump have been running consistently neck-and-neck since the start of September -- with other candidates struggling to keep pace.

    The switch in the lead comes as Carson has taken a clear lead in the Iowa race, beating Trump in some polls by double-digits. Trump told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Tuesday morning "I don't get it."

    CBS/New York Times pollsters found Carson outpacing Trump among women and evangelicals and running even with him among men. Trump performed better with moderate Republicans and voters without college degrees.

    No other candidate cracked double-digit support in the latest poll. Marco Rubio won 8% support, Jeb Bush and Carly Fiorina tied for fourth place with 7 percent and Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and John Kasich each got 4%.

    The poll does carry an important caveat, however: 70% of respondents said they had not settled on a choice yet. Trump's supporters, however, are more locked in with their support.

    The most recent CBS/New York Times poll surveyed 575 Republican primary voters and carries a 6-percentage-point margin of error.

    I keep expecting to hear a report on the news saying that the mummified remains of the real Dr. Ben Carson were discovered and that the batshit imposter on the campaign trail has been arrested.

    Let's just gloss over the part that says "Though within the poll's margin of error,"

    People are fucking insane, Have they all forgotten about the Godfather Pizza character from 2012? He was rocking and rolling in the polls too for a bit, ask Dr. Carson five detailed questions regarding foreign policy, foreign leaders, or shit-geographical locations on the map of countries vital to our interests. I believe he will fall flat on his face. I understand he is sharp in some areas, he is a legitimate brain surgeon-however unless Ayman al-Zawahiri needs emergency surgery-this is of no help to us as a country. I get so sick of the flavor of the month routine when it pertains to something as important as electing a leader, a lot is at stake this time around......choose wisely.

    :confused:I still think someone other than Trump/Carson ends up being the nominee. Maybe Bush, maybe someone off the radar like Kasich. Maybe Bob Dole enters the race as a late entry. :roll:
