Last weekend’s political polls unveiled a surprise adjustment to GOP candidates’ standings: Ted Cruz’s favor among Republican voters has skyrocketed. CNN’s poll lists him in second place, with 22% support just short of Trump’s 27%. But he’s taken the lead in Iowa, with the Des Moines Register reporting Cruz is the favorite among 31% of voters, ten points ahead of Trump. Either way, the Texas senator has replaced Carson as Trump’s primary opposition, at least for now.

According to the December 2015 CNN/ORC Poll, Ben Carson has dropped a hefty eight points since the mid-October poll, and there are plenty of theories out there for the downturn in his polling numbers. One theory is that the drop is due to questions about the accuracy of his biography (Politico). Others have suggested that the renewed energy in Ted Cruz’s campaign and his recent endorsement by Iowa Rep. Steve King likely cut into Carson’s numbers (CNN). And even Carson himself has an explanation for the drop—public perceptions that he has little to no foreign policy experience (ABC News).
