Carson leads Iowa poll
Latest poll of likely Iowa caucus-goers now has Ben Carson leading Trump.
In the previous two Iowa caucuses, a candidate representing the hardcore religious right won or tied in Iowa and then went on to lose the nomination: Huckabee in 2008 and Santorum in 2012. So this doesn’t mean that Carson is going to win the nomination. But this is still bad news for Trump who would be unstoppable if he wins both Iowa and New Hampshire.
My enthusiasm for Trump has waned since he came out with a tax plan that’s a massive tax cut for the rich, after he had previously went on for two months saying that rich Wall Street people are getting away without paying their fair share of taxes.
